Welcome to the website of the Divine Word Missionaries, (Societas Verbi Divini - SVD) of the Botswana Province. Presently the province encompasses three countries: Botswana, Zambia and South Africa - a huge territory stretching for more than 2.000 km, being part of the great Kalahari Desert.
It is a place of incredible natural beauty and cultural richness of People of many tribes and origins.
In this part of Africa we are trying to proclaim the Incarnate Word that became one of us for our salvation and Who sends us to His mission.
The reality of faith is there but the knowledge of Christ is still very limited.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and without Him not one thing came into being.
What has come into being in Him was life, and the life was the light of all people.
And the Word became flesh and lived among us,
and we have seen His glory, the glory as of a Father's only Son, full of grace and truth."
(compare Gospel of St. John, first chapter)
