In early April this year a doctor and a physiotherapist from Brisbane visited the MOP mission in Labuan Bajo expressly to assess the medical condition of the 15 boys that are in the apostolate at the monastery. They were part of a group of six that visited the mission (Dr Naomi, Cameron, Joan, Georges, Tina & Trevor). These apostolate boys, with varying degrees of physical and mental incapacities are permanently cared for by the brothers. Dr Naomi, and Ms Joan carried out several medical and physiotherapy tests, and the results of their assessments and their recommendations are being incorporated into the brothers’ daily care for these children, in an improved, coordinated and focused approach. Many thanks to the medical team for their generosity and efforts to improve the lives of these special children.
In future posts we will report on the visit by the group, of which four were from Holy Family Parish Indooroopilly. What they did and who they visited during their stay at the mission.
Sit back and enjoy the photographs of some of the highlights

The Lord must be so very proud of his Missionaries doing such a marvellous job. It was a pleasure to read and view the photos.
