Mother Yvonne continues her visit in Zambia Lusaka (Zambia). The sisters of Zambia send news update on Mother General’s visit.
 At 07:30 we had the Eucharistic Celebration presided by Fr. Provincial don George Chalissery for the memorial of St Monica.
After a brief encounter with our Provincial, Sr. Julienne Munyemba, Mother Yvonne started the meeting with the Aspirants and Postulants and their formators, Srs. Ireen Kapisha and Constance Nsofwa.
Inmediately after, Mother met with the junior sisters.
At 12:30 Mother moved to the Apostolic Nunciature, with the Provincial, Sr. Julienne Munyemba and all the animators of the communities: Sr Ryszarda Piejko, Sr. Celeste Yolola, Sr. Ireen Kapisha, Sr. Agnes Mukoma, Sr. Evelyn Chisanga and Sr. Modester Chansa, also invited were: Sr. Maria Mazzone, Sr. Marianna Girasoli, Sr. Lorraine Nsofwa, Sr. Charmaine de la Chaumette and Sr. Ana Mercedes Henriquez, and Fr. George Chalissery. There, after a brief exchange with the Nuncio and his Secretary they enjoyed a moment of fraternity over lunch.
From the Nunciature, Mother moved to City of Hope, to visit the Project. There, during the moment in the Chapel, where the sisters and children gathered to sing the Magnificat, praising the Lord for the great things He has done for us, Mother thanked the children for her warm welcome.
From the chapel, we went for a short tour of the compound which ended in the children’s dining room , where they  presented some cultural dances and a short sketch on Mother Mazzarello. Mother thanked again the children for the presentation and encouraged them to follow the advise of the sisters and assured them that she takes them with her in her heart.
The SDB Provincial and the SDBs from the Communities around Lusaka gathered at the Provincial House for a moment of sharing with mother. After supper, during the good nights, Mother Yvonne thanked the Salesians for their closeness and their close collaboration with the sisters, especially for their spiritual support. Mother also shared about her experience in Spain for the WYD and told us how meaningful our Salesian Charism is for the young; Mother encouraged the Novices to persevere because, she said, “the young people need you”.
