Sister Jane Mankaa, founder of the Benedictine Sisters of Bethany, the first Anglican religious order in Cameroon. She joined an order of Presbyterian nuns (!) at age 16, then felt called to become an Anglican. She started a new order but, with permission of the Bishop of Cameroon, remained under her previous vows with the Presbyterian sisters and adopted their Benedictine disciplines. Her Sisters of Bethany specialize in ministry to orphans. (Chris Gold)
