But Winebald fell sick and got no further than Rome. On recovery he found he could study there. He also met St. Boniface of Mainz who persuaded him to become an evangelist in Germany.

So Bishop aka Brother Willibrord put in a good word and set him up with their sister St. Walburga at a monastery in Heidenheim.
