The initiation of the African mission started in 1992 by Mother founder THERESA BENEDICTA LOUISA who after her death the same year and the second order of the congregation came to existence in 2010 by Madre Dr. Merabelle V.O Godwin.
This is the summary of the life of that woman who sacrificed herself for 21 years in the service of her brothers. The work life of Mother founder of Medical Missionary Of Sister Of Christ Passion Consolar (second order) of Missionary Sister’s of St Theresa Servant Of Christ Passion (Santa Teresa Siervo DeCristo Pasión).
Madre Dr. Merabelle flares up in love for young girls who have been deceived in their sentiment. Unmarried mothers who are abandoned and rejected by their families in the hands of baby factories operators. To her it was a social evil.
She gets an important idea which is to get a house to accommodate them and give them a better life.
She collaborates with Imo state anti-kidnapping squad to receive them, when she came to Africa for African mission in 2010 for the expansion of their congregation, since they can not come to the need of African children.
The second idea is to find an organization which would help her with accommodation. In her discussion with mother general of S.T.S.P of 1st order in 2009, (Mother Theresa Fernando Benedicta) and with the help of Monsigner Bishop Ganye former bishop of the roman Catholic Diocese of Dassa-zoume Benin Republic now the Arch-bishop of Cotonou since 2010 and the episcopal diocese of Dominican Republic, Bishop Emeretus Nicolas de jesus lopez Rodrique who adopted the order and Bishop of Owerri archdiocese in 2011, followed by Bishop of Enugu who gave his letter of acceptance to build a Novitiate house for African mission. She confirms that she will try that experience even if she is poor and unknown for “that which is impossible with men is not impossible with God, for with God, all things are possible “ (Mat 19,26).
In Enugu house of formation, she suffered betrayal from the two novices set. She closed that house of formation because people consider all these misfortunes as a curse.
Mother Merabelle V.O Godwin felt that she has a calling which is to follow Christ in her suffering. She thinks that Jesus is telling her “bear your cross and follow me”.
She also extended her charity to the sick in the hospitals. She understands that by coming close to the sick, she is consoling Christ in his passion.
The Consolar’s as their name says it, bear their cross everyday and Mother Merabelle Godwin calls on the members to practice charity to those who are suffering. Many girls are interested by the work and the way of living of Madra Merabelle V. O Godwin.
The “Consolar” helps young women to avoid abortion and get rid of any discouragement during pregnancy by accommodating and assisting them with their needs.

They take care of the sick, the elderly people and all those that need help in the time of suffering.
Mother Merabelle Godwin defines their service as a provider of joy, living even in pain.
They take care of the protection of children before, during and after birth. That is why they open child care centers to help poor families.
