Zambia Mission: Taking Nano Nagle’s Vision to Heart

Presentation Sisters in Zambia

Among the faces of Zambia are the Presentation women who took to heart Nano’s desire to be of service anywhere in the world. They claimed her vision as their own and left family and the familiar to embark on a faith journey. The Presentation women here have come from Ireland, India and the United States. They have been joined by Presentation women native to Zambia, as well as women and men here who call themselves friends of Nano. And indeed, they are! Through this blending of cultures and faith, they claim there is an ease of service even in the midst of deprivation. Heart speaks to heart and the rest falls into a more balanced perspective as they have chosen to cast their lot with the people here. It is obvious that they heard a clarion call and responded generously. In their daily fidelity, each one is being transformed into becoming more than a light bearer. Through their ongoing surrender and the grace of God, they become the very light of Christ. I am humbled to have been among them.
