Universidade Catolica Dom Bosco, Campo Grande

If you’re you going to spend time with young people then a great place to start is a university.  Under the superb guidance of Samila and Tais, I was given an extensive tour comprising the library, various departments like psychology where Samila did her masters, the chaplaincy office, gym and swimming pool. The highlight for the girls, well mine too, was their popular radio station, 91.5 FM, which brought back lots of fun memories of my radio days in Trinidad.

Bem-Vindo ao Brasil

 

 

That’s welcome in Portuguese.  Welcome everyone to my blog about being on mission with the Salesians of Don Bosco in beautiful Brazil.  Why some of you may ask?  I am simply following an ever-since-I-have-known-myself God-desire to work with children and young people, particularly in Brazil.  A teacher (professora) at CAIJ  in Corumba where I work, asked me “why Brazil?”  She hugged me when I told her that Brazil has always been on my heart.  I hope you join me for the journey.  Bom viagem.
