12 Father Continued from page 1 also very happy about his new assignment and says "! never regretted it." He spent the first five months living in his new bishop's residence learning the Hindi language. Many days he studied eight to 12 hours a day. When he knew enough of the language "to get along and to do a homily," he was assigned to tribal areas in Indore and Jhabua. He then directed a training program for brothers at Palda. In 1961, his bishop as- signed him to manage dioce- san 'farms and to pastor St. Mary's Church in Karpur. He was directed to "introduce and develop a method of farming along modern, scien- tific lines adapted to the local conditions." The diocese owns 175 acres of farmland, which in 1961 was only producing 14 bushels of wheat. "There was no use of fertilizer and no ir- rigation system." He began introducing a system of irri- gation, fertilizers and insecti- cides, and today, the land produces 2,500 bushels of wheat annually. "We get 90 to 100 bushels per acre. Then it produced two, three or four bushels per acre. That's all." He began to showcase the farm, demonstrating modern farming methods to area farmers. "You have to show them first how to use ideas. That is the primary product of our operation." As a Divine Word Mission- ary, Father Ziliak says he has also tried to demonstrate the Christian way of life. "That's the keynote to all our work over there. Just to grow potatoes and pumpkins, or corns and beans, I could do that over here. What we want to do over there is to es- tablish Christian values." He says an important part of his work has been to set a Christian example for others to follow. "If a person fails in a mire, and you jump in with January 15, 1993 I I I iii him, you will be stuck also. You stay outside. You don't identify yourself with that. You stay outside and give him the help." He sites his rectory as one example of a better way to do things. "I did not go there to live in a grass hut. l didn't go over there to make another example of their living. They have plenty of examples. There are millions living in poor housing. "l came there to give them a better way of life. Our house shows them what you can do with a certain amount of bricks. A sparrow can build a nest or a robin using the same materials. You know how un- tidy a sparrow's nest is? Most untidy. Robins' and swal- lows' nests are most beauti- ful, with the same material." Father Ziliak has also been responsible for the develop- ment of forests of teak trees. He started 20 years ago with one tree and quickly added more to the "idle acres" of the farm. He then began the task of convincing area farmers the value of these trees and encouraging them to also grow the trees. "Teak trees grow very quickly and are valued for their wood. One harvested tree is worth about $200." "It's the finest and most ex- pensive wood in the world. These idle acres will become more productive that the pro- ductive land. It's not an idle dream, but a growing reality. It's growing gold." He says he's not sure why he was chosen to serve as a missionary, but says it speaks of the individual gifts every- one possesses. "Imagine if all the 10 top songbirds of the forest would sing the same song. How drab that would be. We are different." He says he's had a wonder- ful life and "wouldn't ex- change it for anything else in the world, but only for a first place seat in the kingdom of heaven."
