Our Annual Assembly this year was from 3 to 5 July 2018. It was a very cold period in Queenstown and especially in Pallotti Farm. The conferees in the farm tried to keep us as warm as they can with gas heaters and the rest of the warmth came from the joy of being together. The Provincial of Heart of Jesus province, as usual, was in our midst and we were very happy to have him. The Assembly was longer than usual with so many issues to deal with. At the end, important decisions were made on some issues that will bring better progress to the Delegature. We also bid farewell to Fr Karl Frings, who after more than 50 years of faithful service in South Africa returns to Germany for his retirement. We ask God to continue give him health of mind and body, and feel him with joy of His presence.
