New Year It's not the 1st of January, however many activities begin in September Las Sunday, the 21St we had abig celebration for the Pastoral Year. All groups wearing their uniforms or their colorful scarves. There was singing and dancing just for the occasion, two offerings (one especially for the poors). I must say I was really impressed. These people aren't rich at all, nevertheless everyone one brought gifts, food and money for the less fortunate! Also school began here in Bozoum, on Wednesday the 24th. Hundreds of kids are back for their studies. Our schools here are from pre-school to Secondary school and now host more than 1100 kids. The good thing is also public schools are slowly reopening too, and this is really exceptional, as schools here usually reopen mid November early December. Thanks to our training and support (UNICEF and Czech Republic funding), teachers are back at work accepting this new challenge of an early start. Maybe it's only one thing but it's very important that kids go to school so we can begin a normal life again. Throughout this week we've kept busy preparing everything for our Patron's day, Saint Michael. Confessions, doctrine and Mass: all is ready to celebrate our Lord protecting our community and city during such a trying year!
