The Vicar General of the Diocese of Grand Bassam (RCI) is since yesterday in our walls. The purpose of his visit, he expressed in very few words, but of very deep meaning: "I am here to greet you and see how is Father Rufin."
Father Jacques Assanvo Ahiwa under mandate of Bishop Raymond Ahoua is since Tuesday, February 11 in Nairobi in the Don Orione Community, the hosting Community of Father Joachim Aké Rufin Aboa for almost two years. He is here for an official and fraternal visit of his confrere studying counselling here in Nairobi, precisely at Embilbul Counselling Centre.
As a reminder, Father Joachim Ake, a priest of the Diocese of Grand Bassam in Côte d'Ivoire, was sent by his Bishop Mgr. Raymond Ahoua, from the Religious Family of the Sons of Divine Providence in July 2012 for studies in Psychology and Counselling. Bishop Raymond, Fr. Raymond at time late ago, lived ten years of mission in Kenya, including seven as in charge of the formation of young seminarians and aspirants of the Orionine in Nairobi. Called back to his province of origin, the Vice Province Our Lady of Africa, in Côte d'Ivoire, he will be made Bishop of Grand Bassam replacing the great Bishop, Paul Dakoury Tabley who had reached the age of retirement.
Father Jacques Assanvo will be in Nairobi for ten days. He will use this stay in Kenyan soil to explore and discover the rich cultural, natural and touristic heritage of this great country, the economic heart of East Africa.
As it is our custom, with a cup of tea with milk, like in Jamboland, we wish him Karibu kwa nyumbani and siku njema.
