Our Tribe

Won’t you be part of our tribe?


Our spiritual parents

Members of our tribe acknowledge the importance of family values, including marital fidelity, mutual commitment of husband and wife to each other and to raising children with good moral standards.

African missionaries who support our tribe

We agree on the following three points:

  • We love God – God is the invisible parent who loves everyone
  • We love our family – The family is the school of love, the cornerstone of society
  • We love each other – Brave men and women, tougher than you think, run in our family and tribe; we protect, serve, and care for each other as an extended family

Together we can make a world of peace, one family at a time.

Join our tribe.

True Love is it!

God wants it, our ancestors want it! Our siblings and our families want it.
We all want it.
All nature wants it.

How beautiful that is already!

Thierry and Catherine Bertolo

My new friends Thierry and Catherine Bertolo here by the Chapelle de Bonne Nouvelle after the mass. Catherine had many experiences with dying people. She said Virgin Mary guided our encounter. I felt it also.

Antoinette Dorlin

She knows how to live with courage and love. Her mother taught her even when no one from her close family is at the hospital she still should go everyday and comfort and take care of people. She goes every morning to the cemetery and visit her husband at 7am and to report and ask him his advice. She lives with love.

Dede and Lucienne Didier

Neighbors, their whole family were always friends with my mother and grandfather’s family. We always lived together. My first memories as a child was the delicious pastries and salade de fruits with red cherries on top.
