The new District Superior visiting the Masai

  • 0
The new District Superior is a Swiss priest, Rev. Fr. Henry WUILLOUD. Worthy son of his native country, he likes the mountains and beautiful Swiss music with its famous and joyous "yodelling".
He came to visit the Kenyan priory in March. Apart from his joy in discovering our great mission and school, he had a chance to discover the Masai people in the countryside surrounding Nairobi. After two hours driving through roads and paths, and another hour walking amongst the hills; we arrived in a Masai village, where the Chief together with his wives and children, but also with his donkeys, sheep and many cows; welcomed us with his favourite meal, a freshly braised lamb!
It is so rare for a priest to visit the Masai people  as they are so attached to their culture and so far from the things of the Christian Faith. Nevertheless, they will surely keep good memories of our visit, and thanks to Fr. Wuilloud because the Maasai children have learned to "yodelling" in the green pasturage of the Kenyan hills!
