Four Christian women work and live in a Muslim and patriarchic world. The ‘Sisters of the Consolata Missionaries’ are building a new library in Empada, a small village in the south of Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. They went there just because they want to give their lives to those who had never met Christ. They want to take out their own faith to other people - 500 years after the first Portuguese missionaries arrived in Africa to save souls.
