From Nawinda, my companions (catechist Thomas, parish associates Keby and Petar, altar boy Matias and driver Namacando) and I visited villages that were hundreds of kilometres away, several hours by car. In each village (mission station), we stayed for two days and I celebrated mass and performed marriage and christening ceremonies. The first village, that is, the mission station that we visited was Ibolelo, which covers around a dozen villages.
