We always have troubles but we solve it in a healthy way. Another is the brotherhood spirit that I experience in the life of the priests and the brothers. We have been taught in our novitiate that we all become MSCs first before we become a priest, meaning we are all the same...They really show it by calling each other brother rather than father..."

Emmanuel

Geor

Georges Zang Amougou is from Awae-Centre, Cameroon. Georges tells us about what attracted him to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart "I had a great devotion for the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I did not see in him a cure for the world like Father Jules Chevalier, but as a place where my own healing. I felt love by this heart so deeply that I multiplied the novenas. It was my safety, my reason for hoping that I would lose a lot. This heart, I am still certain, will give me salvation. This attraction to the Sacred Heart is the primary cause of my entry into the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart congregation. How not to share the blessings that God's love has brought in my life so that others in return seek it." In his free time, Georges enjoys helping the poor and spreading the word of God.
