That was His Eminence first speech to the new church in Eldoret Diocese dedicated to Virgin Mary. It was a very beautiful moment for Christians who have never meet or seen the Archbishop. For them it was the first time they have met him you can all imagine the feeling? fr Jeremiah Songok for the good work.
