And the first impression may be just this: everything is really different, different from what I was used to.
But God is unchanging and His presence in the Word and the Eucharist is unchanged. He knows no boundaries or distances. And it is in HIM that I also find the same Nazareth here.

From the very beginning, I was captivated by the great kindness, openness and simplicity with which I was welcomed by the local inhabitants. Hence the wish of our parish priest: “Feel at home in Ghana” came true after only a few days…
