As we are getting closer to celebrating 50 years since the arrival in Peru of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul, I feel filled with happiness and gratitude to God for having put them in my path.

As we, Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul celebrate 50 years of missionary work with our people in Carabayllo, Peru, I was given the privilege of writing my recollections about our beginnings in Peru.

Because I was one of the first ones to go to Peru in 1967, I went to back to celebrate the 50th year of our presence there. It meant a lot to me to be there for this special event.

Who would have thought, as I wrote that letter in 1966 to our General Superior responding to a request for volunteers (for five years) for the foreign missions, that I would be sitting here in Peru answering a request for reflections on these fifty years?
