Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from CBIW. I am excited to share with you our newsletter for this week. It is amazing that God is using minister David Ballard in a wonderful way to serve our God. Brother David’s presence in CBIW will go a long way to impact our students and others.
His short courses that brought him went on well, as he finished the New Testament Church. The course was wonderful as the students keep enjoying their lectures with him as he exposed a lot of insight about the church.
The lecturer does not only pay attention in teaching in CBIW, he spent off class time to visit congregations and teach mid week Bible studies and Sunday worship for nurturing.
The students of CBIW posed for a family picture with their lecturer raising their right thumb that depicts “WE ARE NOT ALONE.” This picture was taken after they finished the New Testament Church course.
This picture shows brother Ballard still lecturing in the night, because 6 hours was good but the students demanded for more time to study, so the humble lecturer allocated more time for them to learn. He said, “I CAME HERE TO TEACH, SO LET ME USE ANY OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSFER KNOWLEDGE.”
This morning brother David and I traveled 100 kilometers to preach and teach in KWA KWA CHURCH OF CHRIST. His lessons during teaching and the sermon were so encouraging to the congregation. The time was not enough for him to answer all the hands which were raised to ask questions during the Bible study class. After worship more came closer to him to learn more, as you can see brother Verand in Kwa-Kwa Church of Christ asking and learning with others after service.
The host of my wife’s family in Kwa-Kwa congregation organized a fellowship to welcome brother David and the director. More people are excited about CBIW and continue to pray for the growth of the school which will drastically help the growth of the church in Cameroon.
I am thanking you on behalf of the Wotutu congregation and the entire student body for all you are doing to train men to preach. We are thankful to brother David who came with a projection device that he will donate to the school which will be used in our evangelism.
1. More villages have been mapped out to plan new congregations this quarter. We pray for means of transportation to these areas.
2. Public address system really is in need now.
3. Pray for us.
4. Pray for brother David as he starts lecturing on The Godhead this week and returns home immediately after that course on Sunday.
Do your best to share this report with others who may be of help to some of our visions. Thank you for being there for us. God bless you all for all that you do for the cause of Christ.
Elangwe and Family.
By His grace, Director CBIW
