Hera, Timor Leste, 13 March 2020. On Friday 13 March, heavy rain hit East Timor. The people are used to this rainy season, but this time the rainfall was more than usual. The rivers overflowed and there was a big flood that brought water and mud along the road, damaging vehicles, houses and electricity lines. Also the new postulant house in Hera was damaged, as well as several other houses in the parish.
As soon as the rain stopped, the brothers and postulants and their neighbours began to work together to clean the area and repair the electricity lines. Brother Peter Narwadan made a video showing the damage, but the most important thing he captured on film is the enthusiasm and good teamwork in repairing the house: a video about brotherhood.
