Missionaries of 149th Salesian Missionary Expedition: Lawrence Okoli

From Nigeria to Northern Belgium: this is the journey undertaken by the young Salesian Lawrence Okoli, 26, accepting the challenge of being a missionary ad gentesad estraad vitam. Starting with the 149th Salesian Missionary Expedition, he speaks today of what it means for him to be a missionary.

“Obviously, it is not thanks to my merits that God has chosen me, but for me it is a privilege and my answer is simply one: to participate in this mission of Christ and that Don Bosco dreamed about,” says the young Nigerian.

He is not only convinced; above all, he is enthusiastic about the decision taken: “Being a missionary, especially a Salesian missionary, is a choice of happiness,” he adds.

As a true spiritual Son of Don Bosco, Lawrence invites everyone to be happy in Christ: “God will be with us until the end of time. Be happy and keep smiling!”
