New Year's Celebration!

On New Year’s Eve the church had a watch night service. It started at 10:00 p.m. with singing, African style with clapping, “dancing”, and a lot of joyful noise! At one point it was a greeting song so everyone went around singing, hugging, or shacking hands. Bro. Peter’s wife, a very sweet and bubbly person, came up to Katie, wrapped her in a big hug, and danced with her. It was a surprise to Katie but she broke away with a big smile. Later in her journal she recorded, that the service was so much fun! She got right into the singing and clapping along with everyone else. Singing was followed by sincere prayer and a service from Bro. Eko. As midnight approached we sang and prayed in the New Year. It was a very special service and a great start to our new life here in Limbe, Cameroon
