On 5th January 2023, Liam Durrant landed in Kenya to take up an appointment in the Formation Centre Nairobi. This was not the first time of Liam in Kenya. He was in Kenya back in 1982 to 1984 for his Missionary Experience Programme in the then Kisii Diocese (now Homabay) at Oriang Parish. It is amazing till now how he can speak some Dholuo (Local language in Oriang).
Liam was to come back to Africa in late 1980’s to take up his Missionary appointment in Uganda, Soroti Diocese. After many other years of absence Liam was to make a comeback to Uganda in 2004-2005, this time round, to join the formation staff of Jinja. I was part of the first year students in Jinja same year. His was short lived as he left back to England after one year.
Since 2005, Liam is again back to join the formation team in Nairobi. He brings with him alot of experience in Formation and leadership which is of great help here. We had an official welcome for Liam Durrant on Friday 13th January 2023 here at the formation house- Nairobi and extended the welcome to our Mill Hill Nairobi cluster on Sunday 15th January 2023.
Today 18th January 2023, Liam marked his 64th Birthday. We wish him a happy birthday and many joyful years ahead, and also a fulfilling mission in this Formation community at Chelsea Marina. Karibu sana Liam Durrant.
