Tanzania, formerly part of German East Africa, is an area of Africa in which the Holy Spirit has been moving people towards Christianity, since the arrival of German priests. Rulenge-Ngara is over 50% Catholic and the Church there manages many of the land's schools, dispensaries and hospitals.

The fall of European Communism and the break up of the the Soviet Union left much of Russia a shell of itself. A quarter of the economy had been military based. Most of the economy was controlled by central planners. This all ended with the break up.

Liberia, which was founded in 1821 by Americans seeking an African refuge for freed American and Caribbean slaves, was ruled by their descendents until 1980 when Sam Doe forcefully overthrew the Americo-Liberian elite.

Friends brought three community missions to Jamaica prior to 2008. During the last, we met two priests from Poland building a church in Maggotty. A Jamaican of Chinese ancestry had given them land and some money to build a church. There were no Catholics there. Soon, the men were building a computer center and a makeshift medical clinic out of old 20 foot steel containers. In 2008, we brought our first medical.

Spurred by a member of the parish council, we changed from Community (church building) to medical missions in 2006, going to many places before finally reaching Yoro. Storms had destroyed much of the road, delaying our entry for three days, while the Catholic radio station kept heralding our impending entry. We only had time to see 300 people, upsetting perhaps a thousand. Thus began our love affair with the people of the Yoro region. We have brought medical equipment to the hospital; clinica...
