Terry and I start our day with Mass at the convent with the nuns at 6 AM. Many of the Sisters work in various parts of the hospital and we feel part of the Team providing care to the patients here.
Like a song you can't get out of your head a reading from early this week has been on my mind. My paraphrase: God rewards those who joyfully serve him. It reminds me that not only do I need to serve Gods' people here but to do it cheerfully. Keep us in your prayers as we tackle the work here.
Jim and Terry Hake have been at St. Martin de Porres Hospital in Njinikom, Cameroon since July 2010. With the prayerful support of their family and friends, and relying on Our Lord to be their daily companion, they are in the second year of a three year mission.
