He departed to Thailand in 1952 with Fr. Primo Carnovali. In Phuket, they built house, church and school. In Trang, he received an official recognition from the king. There he died, in the vigil of the feast of the Immaculate Conception, that he loved the most.  He was loved and revered by the confreres, particularly for those who he formed in the 15 years he spent in training.
