Missionaries for Cambodia

As a result of Fr Ivan’s visit to Manila and his presentation on MCCC, a few applications for missionary work were received.  Two from among those who gathered that day for the presentation in Manila, Maria (Bibeth) Libo-on and Marley Dacanay are now in Cambodia to take over from our Singapore members who have finished their work and their stay there.

After a few days spent in Iloilo at an induction course at the Central House of the Mill Hill Missionaries with Fr Jacques Derksen and Fr Liam Durrant in Moro, Bibeth and Marley spent a few days in Brunei to get to know the other MCCC members and to undergo an orientation on their mission to Cambodia before setting off on Wednesday, 21st May 2008 to Phnom Penh.

They were duly commissioned at a ceremony presided over by Fr Hector in Manila before they set off to Brunei.  Our prayers go with them as they embark on their new missionary venture to Cambodia.
