God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

Day 13: 29th April 2011

The first day in Panama and after leaving the car the reader might assume that now the team can rest. Well, wrong assumption. A day full of work is ahead of us, the only thing missing is the driving and the change of the landscape. It feels somehow funny, being in one place for longer than a couple of hours. Emails have to be answered, contact has to be made with future points of arrival, and the blog has to be updated as we know have constant internet in the hostel. Translations have to be done, the blog is in English, Spanish and French as well. Press releases, last preparations for South America and obviously bookkeeping. Joachim is battling to get the flood of invoices and receipts into a format an accountant can read later. The highest amount paid was 229795 Dollars, well Dollars from Costa Rica equaling 312 Euro. We realize how expensive toll and petrol has been on our way. And in between all the work we also enjoy another kind of food – the trekking food chain comes to rest for the time being…

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
