Dear Fathers, brothers, sisters,  our well wishers and our benefactors, Welcome back!
Though it seems that the summer break is never long enough, I am energized to be back at work.

I hope that each of you had a wonderful break and enjoyed special time with friends and family. Time away from our everyday tasks can be remarkably restorative. For many of us, getting back into the swing of things after the holiday break may be difficult. Everyone is used to sleeping in, and eating and doing whenever they want to, so the routine life may be a bit hard to get adjusted to again. I am confident that, as always, you return to your work and study community with renewed enthusiasm and vigor.

The start of a new year provides an ideal time to reflect on where we have been and where we are heading. We also look forward with excitement to the future. When I began my tenure as your a member of the SMA Internantional media team—three years ago this month—it was my goal to build on that tremendous foundation to make SMA (Society of African Missions) known through different missionary activities and bring to you all our missionary priorities today. I am extremely pleased to be able to say that we are well on our way. In the coming year, we can also look forward to additional stimulating webcasts from the SMA International team.


We have been working hard to come out with a new look for our website and we finally got it. Please check the website and social network (Facebook and Twitter) in the coming days for more information about the upcoming events in the whole SMA. I am excited about this year and look forward to getting to know you better and make many more new contacts and supporters of SMA.

As always, if there are ever any questions or concerns we can help with, please reach out to us or contact us at :

Thank you for all that you do to make SMA such a thriving community and missionary family. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope you all have a great Year ahead!

With my best wishes for a healthy and productive Year ahead.
