God Listens to Stories from Carmelites in Tanzania

Coming from India to Tanzania has been quite a journey for Godwin Rodrigues. A native of Mangalore, he grew up with many challenges in his previous life. After singing in a heavy rock metal band he discovered that there must be more to life than screaming lyrics into a microphone. Through intentional discernment, he decided that it was time to commit his life to Christ through the Carmelite order. Listening to his story makes one aware very quickly that peace and happiness indeed is possible at the foot of Cross.
