Dearest in Christ,
Calvary greetings from your brothers and sisters here. It was like a dream that two years of studies in CBIW was over as the last short course instructor, our coordinator, brother Josh Austin rounded up studies on Marriage and Family with our Alpha batch students.
The Lord was with us and saw our efforts to reach out His words to many in the Bonabery community in Douala. The Lord added 5 young and energetic souls into the congregation there. Keep them in your prayers as they continue to grow to impact and influence the community with their life styles for the Glory of God.
The week was a great one full with the blessings of God as brother Ewang Divine, one of our students who was sick, came back on campus much better. Wednesday last week we had the gospel call to travel to Douala for our very last campaign for the year as a school. Thanks for all your prayers, because as I write this mail, all the staff and students are back on campus safe and sound. Glory to our king.
Our students smiled as they sit on the hired van ready for the trip to Douala. God is blessing and maybe, by His grace, one day we shall have something like this on our campus and will enhance our movement to rob from the strong man’s house as we think souls daily. Evangelism is our mission and our mission is evangelism. This is our motto and we do all at our disposal to operate on it.
At the campaign, with very high temperatures, students slept on the floor to rest so that they can continue the work the next day. God was with us throughout as no one had any health problems.
The campaign was characterized by public preaching where the community will come out and ask questions concerning what they are hearing and to see how they can compare it with what they are already doing in their denominations.
House to house evangelism was also a serious point on the agenda. Our coordinator, brother Josh, was fully involved in showing from the scriptures what the Bible is saying about great examples in our leadership, as we don’t point the way, but we show the way for our students to follow. We pray they will continue with this great zeal that we see in them. Keep them in your prayers as they go into the field for full time ministry soon.
Brother Josh continued to share the gospel message to people that we can only meet them by His grace on the street. Building relations and establishing lasting relationships with the people in the community was great and may lead them to Christ someday.
We praise God for all His grace and love that we enjoyed with our students for two complete exciting years. We shall share more about those two years next week after their graduation.
1) All is almost set for the first graduation ceremony and second matriculation ceremony of CBIW students. The graduation will come up this week on Thursday beginning at 12 noon Cameroon time. Please keep the day and the activities of that day in your prayers as we are expecting above 700 people to witness it.
2) Students from CBIW, after their graduation, will start full time work in January. We have decided to stand with our students as they go into full time evangelistic work. They already formed an Alumni which will help us know their growth and see how we can also use the BETA batch of students to help them evangelize their respective communities. Please pray for us and come and stand with us to win Cameroon for Jesus.
Words, most of the time, cannot expressed what is in our hearts here in CBIW when it comes to appreciation and expressing our gratitude to God for His greatness in our ministries and also to you, your family and your congregation for all your fervent prayers and support to make dreams comes true in Cameroon. Next week we shall do it in a big way when all the statistics will be set as the students will be graduated already. Thank you. Again I say thank you and God bless you and all that you do. His blessings will be with you, your family and all your endeavors.
Elangwe and family
By His grace Director CBIW
