nigelNigel Thoman: Now 70 years old.  A great friend to many of the Columbans. For the last 30 years or so he has been living in a home for old Chinese men.
He leaves the home every morning (10 miles from Suva) at 5 am each morning to come to the Cathedral to open the doors and set up for Mass and rings the Cathedral bells. Although not the sacristan he knows more about the running of the place than anyone 
 else. On Sunday morning he stays for all the morning Masses. He doesn’t take a penny for his services - he says that God provides.
Missionaries -  we're just trying to match the generosity of those with whom we work and those who support us.
