Life comes from our Lord and ends in Him, and those who die in the Lord are like mount Zion, it shall never be shaken.

Bro. Lutwin joined Mater Spei College in 2006, as a manager of the school. He was aged in life but fought very hard to be at school at all times to discharge his duties by making sure that the school provides quality education of the highest standard and prepare students as responsible citizens.

He tried to ratify all the power cuts that were frequent at the College. He did much maintenance in the school and these have saved the school much finance. On several occasions he was called at night to attend to water leakages at school, and he never turned that down.

He got to know most of the students by name and character since he was the one doing their identity cards (tags) and also taking pictures for the school during occasions. He was very friendly and generous to the staff and students. He supported some students and staff who needed his help.

On Friday, 21st November, 2014, we as Mater Spei College people, together with his religious community and other people, will celebrate his life and pray for the repose of his soul. We pray that God will have mercy on him and count him among his saints in heaven. We shall remember you, dear Bro. Lutwin. Rest in the perfect peace of the Lord.


Rev. Fr. Francis Atta Aidoo (school chaplain)

Lutwin worked for more than 40 years I Ghana before coming to Botswana. It was amazing to see an old man, almost 70 years old, having the missionary zeal of a youth. Today so many young missionaries go home after few years... Bro. Lutwin stayed in the mission frontier and was ready for new challenges. He loved people of Africa and had a deep respect for them. He was interested in their culture and problems. He was a true missionary brother!

Today, 7:30 in the morning, we celebrated a special Mass for Brother Lutwin in Our Lady of the Desert Cathedral. The whole Mater Spei College was present, students, staff, administration. Many religious sisters came and some priests from around Francistown. We prayed for Bro. Lutwin and thanked God for his missionary life. May merciful God welcome our Brother in heaven.
