Our former vicar Peter Wyard and his wife, Patricia have listened to the call of God to go and work in Aru, DRC. Since leaving Datchet, they have undertaken training with CMS and improving their French language skills( the primary communication language whilst there) After several months undergoing all the necessary tests and training, they left for Aru mid November. After a delay of 8 days or so due to the vagaries of shipping and the delay of their freight ( containing all the essentials, equipment and materials for their new life) and were required to be present as it cleared customs in Entebbe: They got the all clear and have finally arrived in Aru to a very warm and enthusiastic welcome , and are settling into their new home and community , setting up the solar panels, mosquito nets etc ready to start serving in their new roles.
