Kisumu, Kenya: Glowing Tribute to Fr. Gerard Kraakman MHM

According to Fr. Joseph Oduor the dean of Kisumu denary where Fr. Kraakman has been serving lately, the Dutch priest has become part and parcel of the people of Kisumu for his love to embrace the local language.

“Fr. Kraakman preaches so well in the local language and this has led to the spiritual development of the people,” Fr. Oduor a member of the Order of Augustinian said during the thanksgiving Mass at Nanga parish in Kisumu adding that Fr. is a “Gem of the work for evangelization.”

He acknowledged the cleric’s commitment to learning and appreciating the people’s culture, a virtue that has helped him in evangelization and which should be emulated.

Fr. Kraakman will continue assisting in the Parish of Nanga where he has been serving and at the same time assist in any parish who requests for help within the denary.
