Sporting activities including football by the Cameroon Men and Women associations animated the day. 
"One can say, with abundant proof, that the church in Kumbo has drunk to the dregs the spirit of the synod as yesterday one could see not only the Religious for the celebration, but also a great number of the laity flooding the Church to celebrate with the Religious."  Rev Fr Dufe Joseph a priest of the Diocese said 

Kumbo it should be recalled has remained  restive since the emergence of the armed conflict in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon. 
Bishop George Nkuo has remained steadfast on the ground leading the Christians with pictures of him trekking long distances to hard to reach areas in an effort to meet his Christians.
