A glimpse into the life of Father Phocas

Dearly beloved brothers and sisters of Christ Church Lucketts, I warmly greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I need to take this opportune moment to gratefully say thank you ever so much for your continued assistance to my struggling family, I skillfully managed the gifts you always sent me, together with making sure my children went to school, the balance was well managed such that it has helped me achieve a considerable renovation of the residence you very kindly bought for my family.
Attached you will find are snaps of everything on which your monthly gift has been involved.

May God continue to bless you all much more abundantly. Forgetting your generosity is not only a criminal offense, but also a sacrilege!

You mean a lot to my family.

Your son Fr. Phocas

PS: Thank you for your prayers, this last Saturday we have got a new Bishop elect Rev. Canon Darlington Bendankeha, he will be consecrated on October 29th, 2017 as the 4th bishop of our diocese of Kagera.
