Since launching the Global Sisters Report Africa:Connect discussion group last month on the WhatsApp platform, we've reached almost 40 sisters in six countries. Every week, we discuss an article from Global Sisters Report or a question. Ahead of Pope Francis' first trip to Africa Nov. 25-30, I asked the sisters to share their hopes and dreams for the visit.
