Dearest in Christ,
Accept greetings from this end. It is good to say hello to you. I am here to appreciate you for all your prayers toward our students as they were traveling to different locations for campaign.
As I mail you now, all the students arrived at their destination safe and sound. I followed yesterday to some locations to meet with students and see their welfare. They are doing great and we give glory to God.
I was able to visit the worship hall of Nake church of Christ waiting for the members to come for worship service by 9 am.
Before they travel, we had a prayer and fasting session before they left campus. The students are in 18 locations for campaign, some to virgin lands, to fully establish new congregations, like Bali and Nkongsamba,
Brother Nicholas Etongwe and Nda worshipped with the Bole church of Christ. Please keep all the students in your prayers. Due to the demands from many congregations, our students will be staying in congregations two weeks for campaigns instead of one week as usual. Pray for them so that their efforts will be fruitful.
Minister Mathias Takoh came all the way from Widikum Central church of Christ in Diche 2. He came to visit the students and to appreciate CBIW for their great devotions they did last campaign there. He taught church music in the Wotutu congregation. Keep him in your prayers.
I thank God for you, for all your concern and support of the work here. Your great love for the work here is seen and God is blessing it. Thanks very much for that. I shall send a detailed report to you when the students return with their reports.
1) Keep the students in your prayers as they finish their campaign and later go to their villages for vacation. Our second year will start on January 6th and classes will commence on the January 9th.
2) Keep our congregation in your prayers. Keep the young converts in prayer. Please, if you can, help us with some Bibles. It will serve a great purpose.
3) Keep me in your prayers as I travel to my former school of preaching, NCI, in Uyo, Nigeria. It will be a time for me to learn from others, reflect and refresh before I return home to start fresh for the work entrusted in my hands.
4) We still cry for a van that will help us break grounds as we plant and water to win more souls for His glory.
Please do your best to share this report with others. God bless you.
Elangwe and Family
By His grace director CBIW
