I am so unbelievably saddened to have just learned of the untimely passing of Father Pirmin Ngolle. Fr. Ngolle was a compassionate man who came to this county to bring awareness of the plight of his people in Tanzania. Many of his people had no clean water, medical or school supplies. His mission was to raise awareness and funding for these people and he succeeded in doing just that. Through his work, he was able to provide 52 wells which will bring clean water to women and children who have not known what this is like before. Something that we take for granted every day was such a gift to these people. Through his work he got school supplies donated and medical supplies donated to people who were so grateful and so used to doing without. It was my pleasure to work with him to help raise this awareness on a national and international level. And it is my mission to challenge all of you to not let his work die. I encourage each and every one of you, in the name of Fr. Pirmin Ngolle to donate as little or as much as you can to Hanga Abbey Mission in Tanzania. And if you are a media that I have contacted about doing a story on this remarkable man, please do it. And if you would like to, please email me and I will get the press release to you. But please, don't let this man's work die with him. Let's keep the dream alive for those he cared so much about in Tanzania.
