Good Friday is a National Holiday here in Cameroon. Apparently the Moslems were given 2 National Holidays and likewise the Catholics were given 2. There is not the same separation of Church and State that we have back home.
Outside of Church
This afternoon the Hospital Staff will meet and do the Stations of the Cross between the Hospital and the Church. Other groups will likewise start the Stations of the Cross from other areas then we will all meet for Good Friday Services at the Church. Holy Week is looked forward to here with great anticipation and is actively participated in by many. Easter Morning Service will be a wonderful event.
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.
