Frs. Marek and Ajit Attacked by Thieves

Dear Confreres:

Greetings from Gaborone, Botswana.

Just last night at 10pm Marek Marciniak rang me saying that thieves, masked, entered the Mission of Maun, tied him and Ajit who was visiting him and beat them badly. He said that they also damaged the mission. He was all shocked and frightened as he was speaking to me. He also said he received a blow on his head. He said hope nothing has happened to the head. The police were called and were with them.

It is really a very sad news for us. Let us keep both Marek and Ajit in our prayers.

Fraternally yours,

Tony Rebello, SVD
