Please pray for the people of Cameroon

Catherine Molloy, CND

Sister Catherine Molloy, CND, asks: Please pray for the people of Cameroon as an on-going crisis escalates, and fear and tensions mount. A boycott of schools by parents in the English-speaking region continues, as do weekly Ghost town days. With an increase in acts of violence, a state of emergency has been declared in the region that includes Kumbo. News media report that additional military personnel are being deployed to the area as many Cameroonians at home and in the Diaspora (Europe, Africa and North America) move toward declaring the independence of Southern Cameroon on October 1st.
