Dearest in Christ,
It is amazing to say hello again after a period of time where our students went for campaign in 14 different congregations. I am excited to report to you all what happened during the campaign.
I appreciate God for taking the students off from Wotutu and as of now 20 of them have returned on campus safe and sound, ready for the short courses that will begin on Monday, 20th of June 2011 by minister David Ballard from Pattonville church of Christ in Texas. He arrived right on time on Wednesday 15th June. I was at the airport with my wife, my son and a brother in Wotutu congregation to welcome our August guest and usher him into our lovely and peaceful country.
As of now all is well with him as we are doing a lot of visiting both in Wotutu and out of Wotutu. He has already visited three congregations and will do more as he teaches in the school. He has come to teach two courses: New Testament Church and the Godhead.
The students came back with a great result concerning their relationship with the congregations and the church community.
Their goal was to evangelize and also to nurture congregations where they will be serving during the campaign. They left Wotutu with the 4 G’s in mind. The 4 G’s stand for GAINING, GROUNDING, GROWING, and GLORIFYING God.
God used the students to achieve this in many ways to His glory as many souls were touched. They had a total of 31 souls baptized into the vineyard and 24 souls were restored into the fold again. Please do your best to pray for these souls to remain faithful as they walk with God.
Even though the students were assigned initially to 14 congregations, some of them saw the need to visit nearby villages to go on their own to strengthen weaker congregations and one new congregation in the village of Ahole in Kupe Maneguba division was established. We see the needs as Jesus said, “the harvest is ripe, but the laborers are few. Pray for the Lord of the harvest to send more laborers.” Many congregations are demanding the presence of our students to come and help them on weekend evangelism. We are ready and the students are also ready, but there are no funds to send them to this great commission. I strongly solicit your kindness to this work to make a difference because we are different.
I am thankful to God for using sister Tamu Blakeney who came to visit Cameroon and decided to support the students with their part transportation on this campaign.
Thanks also to the Bear Valley family and not leaving out you who stood by us and by so doing the students left and for the campaign without any problems with transportation. I pray God will bless you and keep you as you continue to pray and see how you can be part of this work.
Do your best to share this report with someone who may love to be part of this work.
Elangwe and family
By His grace, Director CBIW
