Dearest in Christ,
Greetings to you all in Jesus’ name. We do hope this mail will meet you all in good health and a sound faith. We are doing okay here, just for some who continue to have some health difficulties now. We are down on our knees praying to the greatest Doctor to help the situation.
The waves of our early morning program keep cutting across communities with the adding of another horn speaker. Some villagers, far from Wotutu, called to participate by asking a question and that we should also include their chief’s name when we are greeting and praying for those in authority. Sister Emerencial, in Wotutu, obeyed the gospel last Monday after her family kept listening to the program “Back to the Bible.” Sister Emerencial smiled after being raised to live in newness of life. She told the church that the husband encouraged her go to the church of Christ, after they followed our program. He said he will come later. We are doing a follow up now with the husband. Keep them in your prayers.
Last week was well with the students of CBIW as they continue without any interruption from their studies. They continue to adapt and see the amount of work load that they must accomplish in school of validate their courses, so that students are determined and they are doing all in their reach to meet up.
We “think souls” and by so doing we make moves to rob from the strong man’s house where souls are perishing in their sins. We were smiling as we trekked to Tole for a funeral of a brother and we also used the opportunity to reach out to the entire community before the time of the funeral.
In Tole we were involved in house to house evangelism where we reached out to many in their homes. Some were doing their domestic activity, but will halt and listen to the truth from the Bible. One of our graduates, Awatt Manfree, is in this community and he is doing a great work.
The casket contained the remains of our brother, Ndive Nathaniel. I am preached to the living who listen keenly on the topic “Where Do You Put Your Hope?” It was really a moment to reflect to many who think accumulating wealth and other things is the best a man can do. The brother died at the age of 81 after suffering from stroke. He was blind man and a widower. The students of CBIW created an impact in the community and the people look at the church of Christ differently, as we never asked the mourners during the funeral service to come and give offering. They asked many questions after that and the Lord added brother Nelson to the church in Tole. Keep the brother in your prayers to grow to maturity.
1) We are still on mapping out the work in Batoke. The needs are enormous, that is why we need preparation before we move.
2) More demands to come and help with the work are still coming to my office. We shall start sending our students far into the forest in Akwaya areas, which is very close to the Nigerian border in the Northwest of Cameroon. Keep us in your prayers as we “think souls,” so that we shall carry the free bread of life and and share it in different communities free of charge and save many from bondage.
We praise God daily for you, for all that you are doing to make things happen here in Cameroon. God bless you and help you continue in this soul saving ministry. Your reward will come from the Lord alone, because we cannot reward you enough for all that you are doing, but we shall thank you for standing by us. Do your best to share this report with others around you.
Elangwe and family
By His grace director of CBIW
