I am Fr. Yi Deok-Hyeong, belonging to the Korea Independent Delegation.
I came to Zimbabwe in 2017 for encountering God among the people and taking them to the presence of Him in the style of Fr. Claret. In 2012, when I was a student, I expressed Fr. General Superior my willingness for the universal mission. He gave me an immediate answer saying, «Zimbabwe need missionaries». After four years I really got the permission and arrived at Harare, Zimbabwe.
As mentioned in the XXV General Chapter Declaration “Witnesses and Messengers of the Joy of the Gospel” I am trying to live such a missionary life in praying, working and suffering for the love of God in the living with the people.
I would like to write down here what I received from Fr. General, «Love the people to whom you are sent with their richness and limitations. They are your own people». Thank God for being with us always.
After a few years living and working in Zimbabwe I was appointed to Korea. I just would like to say thanks a lot to God for the beautiful time I spent in Zimbabwe.
