Congratulations Anthony and Binta Bangura

Mama Binta and baby boy

Nazareth House Apostolate is pleased to announce the birth of this precious little boy in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Mom (Binta) and baby are doing well. Dad, Anthony, is making his way to Freetown to reunite with his wife and baby. Unfortunately, poor dad was stuck in Makeni during the birth. As is the custom, Anthony will also name the child upon his arrival.

In the name of Nazareth House and St. Laurence House, Kadijah and Lucy, together with James, brought gifts to officially welcome the new child.

This is such wonderful news, not just the birth, but that a timely c-section was performed successfully shows progress being made. Thank God! Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
