This is the second part of the series of making a visit to the mission in Flores. The first post in this series looked at what travel and packing was required to travel into Labuan Bajo, and we finally arrived at the monastery. This current post highlights the monastery and what can happen there daily, for example it shows children of the apostolate, building projects undertaken by the brothers and some of the visitors that visit the monastery, plus more. So, please enjoy seeing the things that happen day to day.

Next time we will break tradition and present a travel special and show you the many tourist sites around Labuan Bajo (Home of the Komodo Dragon), including Komodo Island and several other beautiful islands and reef.

We sign off for now

See you next time…!!!!

With every blessing

Trevor and Tina
