The reconciliation of Christians a credible sign in the world

In North Thailand, where the traditional cults are popular, Christian training is in the laymen’s hands. Witness of a catechist, native of Myanmar and belonging to Akha ethnic group. The Christian education has also a social role: "Forgiveness has almost removed violent rows." Living in the villages, the catechist leads the faith life of the community and, whenever a missionary comes into the village, he translates the Gospel and the lectures into the local language. Those who embrace Christian faith are required to abandon the animistic practices. The catechists training is granted by the training meetings held every two months in Fang, where the missionary Father Corti, Pime, lives. The education to faith of the children coming from families already converted to Catholicism is of primary importance to the catechists.
