Timor Leste: Being poor with the poor

A Vietnamese Jesuit priest who works in Timor Leste says evangelisation is not a matter of teaching theology but living the joys and sufferings of a people plagued by poverty, sickness and illiteracy. Father Pierre Truong Van Phuc SJ, 38, spoke to UCA News, a Catholic Asian news agency, about his mission in Timor Leste (East Timor) when he returned for a July-August home visit to Ho Chi Minh City in South Vietnam.
