Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Botswana accompanied Sister Vinaya Chalil and Sister Philomina Hembrom, the Kenyan pioneers, to SSK airport in Gaborone, Botswana. Bishop Frank Nubuasah, Father Andrew Makgetla the Vicar General, and a few friends gathered to say goodbye to our Kenyan missionaries. Bishop Frank Blessed Sisters Vinaya and Philomena before they boarded the Ethiopian airlines.
