. It is a challenge for the future but also probably a necessity, given the communication difficulties with Cameroon which Burkina used to be dependent on as a district.

is moving to another area in town where the sisters will be involved in more direct missionary work. The community has just purchased a plot of land on which a community house is being built for the vice-provincial
, the sisters involved in pastoral work and the DHS students who are pursuing their professional formation..
- At Diebougou
, the community has moved to an area outside the town. The construction of the nutritional centre which takes in orphans and undernourished children started in 2004.
- The Pharyiago community
was opened in 2006. Before that, the sisters lived in a rudimentary house among the population. Today the diocese is building a house for them on the mission compound.
- Young Burkinabe women are joining the Congregation
: The calls for the mission are many. The Spirit challenges us to enlarge the space of our tents so as to respond to new needs.
- A Burkinabe woman, the first one, made her commitment as an associate
on 8 December 2007.
