Ivory Coast, October 14, 2008. From July 31 to August 21, a team of French youth, all Regnum Christi members, carried out evangelization missions with the French branch of Mission Youth (Jeunesse Missionnaire) in the Ivory Coast. They visited the cities of Abiyán, Yamusukro, and various towns in the northern zone of the country.
The missionaries went door-to-door and organized activities for youth and children. They also visited an orphanage and some hospitals, one of them for AIDS patients. The people welcomed them with great hospitality and joy.

Besides the work of evangelization in various places and parishes, they also supported the recent foundation of the Regnum Christi Movement in the Ivory Coast. With the help of the missionaries, Fr Gonzalo Monzón, LC, gave a series of talks on the charism and apostolates of the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi, as well as a retreat for renewals and incorporations into the Movement. The group also visited Bishop Jean-Pierre Kutwa, the archbishop of Abiján.

The missionaries took advantage of their days in the Ivory Coast to visit the shrine of Notre Dame de la Paix (Our Lady of Peace) in Yamusukro, as well as other places of cultural interest in the south and center of the country.
