Dearest in Christ,
Accept greetings from the staff, students and the good people of the Wotutu congregation. We do hope you are doing great. We join many of our friends in the USA to say “Thank you Father for your love and providence in our ministries.” As the Americans celebrated Thanksgiving Day over there it was a call for concern to remember those gestures that the Lord has done for us in our lives, in the lives of others, and the ministry which He has entrusted in our hands.
In our effort this weekend the Lord added brother Livinus Che in the body. Please keep him in your prayers as he walk with Christ.
Our theme for chapel this week was Appreciation. This was aimed at helping both staff and students in the big CBIW family to thank God for all that God did to us throughout 2 years of studies and missions. The students benefited a lot as they were taking their final exams in CBIW. The exams went on well and they are set for the short courses that will start this week. Keep brother James Coker from Colorado and brother Josh Austin from Arizona in your prayers as they travel over here to teach and preach.
On the left is a picture of brother Lah Joseph, a leader with the church of Christ Munyenge in the south west region of Cameroon, came visiting CBIW. There is a story attached to this brother that we need to know and praise God at the end of it.
On the right is a picture of brother Tobias again on house to house evangelism, in one of the 3 locations that we went for evangelism on Saturday night after our joint prayers and fasting with the entire Wotutu congregation. We prayed and fasted for a number of things and visions for which we need the intervention of God.
Below and on the left is the cross section of Wotutu congregation this morning had 1 first time visitor who expressed great satisfaction from what she listened to through our radio morning program. The congregation continues to experience growth as we continue to do evangelism and visiting. Today, a total number of 123 were in attendance.
Below and on the right is a picture of brother Lah preaching to the entire community of Wotutu and others. This brother can speak and quote from the Bible. You will read it correctly, but he cannot read and write. Oh if you stand beside him for a while, or you follow him for house to house evangelism, you will appreciate the power of God for somebody who cannot read and write, but can quote just what he is paraphrasing. The Lord is good. He can and cried and said to me, “Oh brother Elangwe, if I could read and write I would have enrolled myself in CBIW to be fully trained and stand as an evangelist of the Word of God.” It is a great lamentation, even to me, as I pity and pampered him that God is using him the way He deems best for the old rugged cross.
1) Our graduation and second matriculation is coming up on the 19-20th of December 2012. Please continue to pray for this twin occasion as many keep making calls and plans to be part of it. Your prayers and support will be appreciated for entertainment.
2) We continue to evangelize our communities. The plans to go to Batoke are still fresh, maybe that will be our last campaign before graduation.
We appreciate God for all that He is doing for us and the work He is doing in our communities. God bless you for allowing yourself to be used by Him for His glory. God bless and watch over you. Share this report with others as we wait if there may be any comments.
Elangwe and family
