2006 World Meeting of Families still having an impact in Africa

.- Several African dioceses are organizing congresses in which families that participated in the 5th World Meeting of Families in Valencia (Spain) share their testimonies and the messages that Benedict XVI delivered during the event.

The AVAN news agency reported that the Diocese of Gokwe (Zimbabwe) organized a congress in which local couples who attended the WMF shared their experiences with other families.  Bishop Angel Floro said the event in Spain provided “great motivation for pushing forward new family ministry projects.”

In Angola, congresses have been organized in the Dioceses of Luanda, Huambo and Benguela in which twenty families that went to Spain participated.  Father Francisco Reig of Valencia said the WMF was an “enriching” event and “was the first one attended by Angolan families.”
 
Father Reig, who has been a missionary in Africa for 12 years, said that during the meeting in Valencia the Angolan couples “realized that there are Christian families throughout the world who share the same faith, something that was very important for them.”

The fifty families from Madagascar and the Seychelles Islands who attended the WMF have also shared their testimonies at events organized by the NeoCatechumenal Way.
