Dear Patti,

Very sorry for the delay....our machines here went visiting their in-laws...unending entertainment, and therefore time of return unsure.....Gods Peace Be with you. Thank you for the money and also for the two boxes...they took too long to reach me, simply because they wanted tax clearance of $60 equivalent. Our couriers, the U.P.S. tell me the new trend may have to stay from now on.

Really all the DEDICATED DECADES you churn out are loaded with fresh and illuminating information for our souls...this summer edition is such a one....I itch to see some of the articles with my ATESO members....Please convey our congratulation to Sr. Bohdonna for clocking 90...May Our Loving Savior add on more and more years especially to fulfill her maxim......ALWAYS DO OUR TEMPORAL WORK WITH, OUR ETERNAL END IN VIEW. We thank her for such enlighten.

In what measure can we thank The TAN PUBLISHER for his great heart.....donating loads of books as tall as our Director and a million times as broad.......I am Confident Our Loving Mother will reward them generously....His earlier gifts of books have done a lot...for instance the little WONDERS OF THE MASS tuned one member to attend Daily Mass...He daily passes by the LIVING Rosary CENTRE either to consume one more book or to return the one he had borrowed....Send our humble thanks to TAN and ask him which bookshop in Uganda would sell their books????

My prayers for you Patti, your dear family and all the members of the Living Rosary...

Dear Patti,

Thanks for the communication about the deceased Lisa Simpson; I do most especially convey my heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family and you! She has been a supporter of Mother Mary's work; I pray that the One she served unreservedly opens her gate to Heaven!

You will always miss her! During the course of my stay in Rwanda, I will daily offer a bead of the Rosary for her and will request all the faithful to beseech God for the eternal rest of her soul I’m going to offer mass at Christ the King in her honor at Christ the King at lunch time, 3hrs time.

Hi Patti

I just received the package you sent. It couldn’t have come at a better time, thanks and God Bless you.


I got one request can you ask some of the priests you communicate with to consecrate the USA to the Immaculate heart of Mary? I recall after I had prayed and prayed for peace in Northern Uganda, with no results I started requesting all the priests I knew to consecrate Northern Uganda to the immaculate heart of Mary. I believe some (or even just one) of them did because within that year the abducted girls from a boarding school were returned after so many years in captivity. God of course doesn’t come back to tell us how he answered our prayers it could have been some other prayers but it's worth trying. If it worked for Russia it can work for America. I see the smoke of satan all over; don’t we need the mother to put out the fire?

Thank you once again for the Sacramentals and prayer cards

Dear Patti,

Thanks for all that you are doing, I am in happy mood because I have got another message from the Rwandan soldier in Darfur, funny enough we talked in Kinyarwanda, his local dialect; that I have not forgotten for the 2yrs I have not visited Rwanda!

He is humbly asking to offer another service if it’s possible! He says, it’s uncertain for a soldier to stay for long in one location! He asks whether it possible, to exploit another chance of his current position and offer another service; deliver another two or three boxes of MM to Angela. He has shared with me the way he saw the poor skinny and frightened refuges scrambling to reach for a medal!!

From his point of view, this would be a miracle, saying that one never knows whether another golden chance of the kind can come! In light of this Fr. Romano from Wau is also in Juba for reasons concerning the Sudan Catholic Radio Network, he shares that he will help if possible on his return, go with the boxes and send them the way I will direct him. What do you say?

If you see we can utilize the chance, lift the boxes today so that they will be in Uganda by Sat. On Monday they come to me in Juba for Fr. Romano to take on Wednesday.

Fr. Romano is one of the few holy priests. He works with me openly although he is tied up with work. Let me hear!

Dear Patti,

Thanks for your prayers, the journey to the boarder was not simple, but went through, I can’t tell you much here in Rumbeck because the generator from which I am working is faulty any time can be off and on, But I managed to be back to Rumbeck and have now also sent off the two boxes to Darfur, I will hear! Have you got any communication from Ddungu that they welcomed the boxes!

In these last days of my staying here I have limited photography. Why? There is sensitivity due to the March 4th incitement of the Islamists president Bashir for crimes against humanity in Darfur, the issue is fresh and I will hold back to next time when I visit, things will have cooled down. Yesterday I was forced also to delete from my camera the photo of upturned lorry; this has not been the case before! But I know it will cool down.

Dear Patti,

I do hereby say bye to you from Wau, Yu have been my inspiration, I remember with gilt the two moments I annoyed you and condemn myself. Tomorrow I will be off to Rumbeck in the mid centre of South Sudan, from where I will have a crude connection to the border with Congo, then after that I will return to Rumbeck to see another miraculous send of MM to Darfur! Pray for me.

When you send the boxes tomorrow and the funds, drop a line to notify, hope to get somewhere from where I will read the message. Being in the mid-centre, Rumbeck is not so much yet exposed to outside world and also the worrisome culture of the Dinka is still a threat to development. Ave Maria Gratia Plena.

Greetings Patti,

I am from another thrilling talk that saw some parents crying for what they have been doing before their children, thus corrupted the society.

Now tomorrow I am leaving for Rumbeck and I have decided that when those medals come it will have come back from the Congo boarder! Because I know they will take a week five days before reaching me, now automatically I beg to tell you that the distance from Rumbeck to where we are sending the two boxes (Darfur) increases. Wau is nearer to Darfur than Rumbeck ad I have to be there to fulfill that first crucial mission God willing. , I am told that since I will be sending these boxes from Rumbeck I need another 200 to make it $700 for transportation. SO I PRAY YOU TAKE NOTE OF THIS, DEOSIT 700 INSTEAD OF THE 500 YOU HAVE TOLD IS TO BE DEPOSITED TOMMORROWI don’t know whether dear Patti you get my point,. I would have waited here until the boxes arrive and I send them over to our desired soldier but I will be missing that other crucial move to the boarder of Congo in time.

Thanks dear Patti for being in spirit with the suffering lot, persecuted by fellow humans for selfish ends!

Pray for me greatly. There is a lot of heat and sand from the desert has risen to our ends here.

Dear Patti,

This is puts us in fix! Reaching this soldier, involves airlifting the medals from here to EL Fasher in central Darfur through tactical means! We can do it but it cost us about $500. Why? Must pay the Kenyan UN pilot, because what we are to involve him with is not part of his assigned work, and he must work out box delivery through the ISLAMISTS controlled EL Fasher airport at some cost.

This is what I have been hearing here that some people go around this way. Last week a priest I told you of, from Abyei told me that Islamists there are also now interested in money, if you give him something, and you know the Arabic well, he will leave you. So I agree that we can deliver, I can use all tactics because now I grow experience by the day but WILL YOU NOT BE DRAINED MORE FINANCIALLY?????????

The Catholic soldier she talks of is not here he is at the base near EL Fasher. Do your best, if you tell me you can then I start working out the way until the medals arrive, and it means dear Patti, they have to go off today! Not so? My days of being in Sudan are thinning, this time I will also use my week of grace and finish, I am supposed to leave by 8th but will use that week of grace and leave on13th.

As you say regularly, "DO WHATEVER YOU CAN WHEN YOU ARE THERE" I propose that if you can raise that that amount, then airlift the boxes so that we send them to where they are most needed. No time for tomorrow, we do everything today because satan is roaring, 4th March for possible inditement of Sudan president is seen as return to extensive turmoil, so if we can do something to save the situation, then do it.

God Bless

Dear Patti,

Greetings!

Work is OK this way. I have lists to post as I am working around the clock to expand my outreach. We had colorful celebrations of 130 years of the arrival of the first Catholic missionaries in Uganda. The Archbishop of Kampala assisted by his auxiliary and Bishop of Masaka and white fathers with many priests celebrated the mass. I had the biggest disappointment when my camera took only four photos and jammed! You would have seen the function in photos. But satan cannot win. We have started our Lenten season with zeal. Please send Lenten messages to read on Radio Maria. Devotees want Philomena cords and oils. Please send in a good number.

Financial report-Bank: charges-$10,Office-$50,Photos-$30,Net-$30,Phone-$40,Postage-$30,Travels$10.Total-$200.

Thanks for your assistance. May God reward you and our benefactors abundantly.

Happy Lenten season

God bless you!

Ave Maria!

Dear Patti,

I am hurrying to go to the first Holy Communion catechumen that is waiting for me! Now I have got the information of how to reach Ezo on the border between Congo and Sudan, First, there is no plane to that direction from Wau. I will get it from Rumbeck 264 km south east of Wau, from here a small plane is directed to that area, however, it’s not guarantee because of lots of demand. THE HOPE IS THAT THOSE PEOPLE IN THE DIOCESE OF RUMBECK HAVE INFLUENCE WITH THE AIR-CRAFT MANAGEMENT. I have contacted them and have told me that if I can earlier confirm with them of my travel day, they will help me fixed on the congested flights to one of the most communication hit areas of Sudan!

I don’t know the size you are sending, because according what I read; the desperate Congolese need a lot of Miraculous Medals.

I am told: RETURN flight RUMBECK to TUMBURA (the nearest airip is $400, then Tumbura to Ezo will be with the ramschacled minibus and it’s approximately (200 Sudanese pounds) or $100 return.

So for me I am available, when you are ready you tell me I do all the contacts of when to travel and meet them.

God bless

Dear Patti,

Happy New Year, I have just arrived in Yei town from the Boarder with Congo.

So sad, I wish you could also log on www.bbc.com to hear the suffering in Congo, a combined army of Congo, Uganda and South Sudan wound up Kony rebels from the North East of South Sudan in vain! They bombed villages to steam Kony out of his hiding; fleeing rebels hacked to death and burnt every home along their flight route towards Central Africa republic!!!!!! Stories of children and women forced into burning bushes! I have got the opportunity of treating burnt survivors with holy oils, MM and rosaries sent to internally displaced refuges. Christmas and New Year’s Eve were not good for me, so bad, with sights of machete girls with missing breasts!! I tell you, satan is hassling heavily!

I cant write much now, I am rushing to another parish 16km on a motorcycle, I cant wait much because its a dangerous route, beyond this time the motorcycle doesn’t allow to go there.

I pray that you deposit another part of the funds on Monday, things are expensive. Nearly doubled costs due to global crisis!

I would wish you to pack some more rosaries about 1,500 of the luminous type, medals etc. Send to my address, the good man George will pick to send the tings to me and funds!

Hear from you on Monday

Dear Patti,

Greetings! The book I have written has just been given Imprimatur by the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese His Grace Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga. The title is St. Philomena Shines in The Heart of Africa. The photo of St. Philomena is on the cover in the map of Africa. I want to include your photo with your husband and your staff among the photos I am inserting in the middle of the book. I want to put also the photo of Pauline Jaricot. The book is ready for printing and many people have been waiting for it so you send the photos on the net to avoid delay by post. I have asked you because I do not have any of your photos with me. If you recommend any other photo to be included please send it. Thanks you for your cooperation. The priests are very happy here for my talent of writing and I have submitted another book entitled Tricks of Satan. They say this will help people to watch out for the tricks of Satan.

The Parish priest Fr. Joseph Sebayiga at our center has rubbished the propaganda about a snake on our Rosaries and says he is going to ask the Archbishop to write a letter refuting that allegation. I have handed to him the letter you sent, so he will handle the matter without me running up and down. He said the luminous Rosaries are very good because they do not break easily like the chain ones He said even if the snake was on the them it would have no effect. I am so happy about his stance. Please continue sending the Rosaries without any fear. I have no oils Scapulars and cords. We have won the devil!!

Happy month of Mother Mary. We shall go for the triumph!

Dear Patti,

Thanks to St Philomena, I got that box and the second one followed immediately...Thank you very much...

About miracles, there are quite a few here and most are not even reported to me immediately....Like this one......Baby girl was born really shapeless, with a back deformity and even contracted T.B., which Drs cured away. Christine, the mother had given up hope of the baby ever walking or even surviving.....St Philomena has made the girl walk steadily and is fairly O.K.

Another one....Baby boy grew up with abnormally frequent epileptic attacks. Parents went from doctor to doctor, but to no avail.....But just one small tube of The Potent St Philomena Holy Oil applied all over the body including the tongue.......The boy no longer gets the attacks and goes to school very confidently

A protestant housewife was always worrying about getting pregnant and many years of her marriage.....She got attracted to St Philomena prayer group which always used The St Philomena Holy Oil to smear on those who had any complaint. She begged our Promoter to smear her too.........A few months later she returned very pregnant and asking to join The Catholic Church........not only herself, she brought 9 others. She is helping us to get others to the faith.

And lastly one catholic is a frequent goer of morning Masses after reading the book THE WONDERS OF THE MASS. May The Little Virgin Martyr continue to shower Her blessings on us ALL...

Dear Patti,

I have a note that I have met here, thanking Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA) director for the Miraculous Medals (MM) we sent in Darfur some time back, someone translated it for me from Arabic to English. Peter Juma and Angela Justin are so happy that MM is working miracles. Many women are protected from rape by Islamists janjaweed. I can only send the MM but cant visit because the area is controlled by the northern divide would require me another visa and also from advice, I can be easily exterminated by the jankaweed who claim to be fighting a holy war.

The meaning of Darfur
Dar---land
Fur- the tribe called Fur

Darfur is the land of the Fur.
