       It is hoped that the missionary work of the Church in general and of the Salesian Congregation of Don Bosco in particular, with its efforts to understand, integrate and preserve the cultural values of the peoples of the Central Highlands, will be reaped fruitfully and more and more brothers and sisters accept and live the faith fervently and vividly.
