From Sister Joyce Nyakwama in Mkar, Nigeria

On Thursday, the 17th of October 2013, Notre Dame Secondary School had a big reason to thank the Lord: The successful completion of the Ground floor of the Hostel. This was actually intended to take place on the 24th Of October, our Foundation Day, but our guest for the day was to be away on our preferred day. The bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Makurdi, Most Rev. William Amove Avenya put on hold two important activities of that day to be with us. It was indeed a great rejoicing for all of us as we sung and shared in the blessings not only of our new hostel but also our fairly well equipped infirmary (with at least the basic medication and equipment) and our trained resident nurse. We thank God for this great achievement. Indeed the bishop is very happy with us and at the same time very grateful for all the wonderful work we are doing to enable the girl child for her full participation in the church and society of tomorrow.
