On Thursday, December 7, our sisters Salomé González Portela, Territorial Delegate of Delhi and Teensha Fernando, traveled to Guwahati, in order to visit the young people who had attended the Motus Cristi, held last September.

They arrived at the Don Bosco Institute on Thursday afternoon and visited the young people (Catholics and from other religion), to whom they spoke about the Three Kings. Our sister Salomé invited them to write the letter to the Three Kings, asking for the necessary gifts for their spiritual and daily life.
On Friday they welcomed the sisters and had a mini Motus with the students who wanted to know a little more about their spiritual life. Some 32 young people attended. Our sisters spoke about the Immaculate Conception of Mary, and then they continued talking about the reading of the Gospel, the Eucharist and prayer.
Charles David, the young Burmese who had showed a special interest in having this retreat, spoke with our sister, inviting us to visit his country. He works as an English teacher in his country and has a very special interest in our charism.
Our sisters shared some endearing and special moments with the Salesian community, which lives in the institute.
Finally, they dismissed the young people, encouraging them to also live holiness when they return to their homes.
