Dearest in Christ,
Greetings in Jesus name from your brothers and sisters here. We do hope you are doing great in all that you are doing.
The first week is off for the Gamma batch of students in CBIW. This week was a week for us to see the level of the students, as we already started transplanting knowledge into them. We know from this first week we have a lot to do for them as we prepare them for ministry, but we can see a bright future as they open their hearts and minds to study the undiluted message from the Bible and to preach and teach it to this corrupt world. Denominationalism is on an increase.
This weekend, the graduates of CBIW congregated in the village of Mofako Bekondo. This is a village where the church was dead for over 10 years. They closed their door and were not worshiping again, but praise God we have revived the congregation. We succeeded in winning back the 7 souls who were out and the Lord added 8 new precious souls into His body.
We are blessed that one of our graduates, evangelist Innocent Kogge, who is serving closer to that village, will be helping while we shall start sending students there by March 2015.
Keep praying for the students and all the instructors as we teach and show the students the way to serve God and to help many others on their way to serve God.
We shall start evangelism in some villages lined up in our programs as we see fit for the students.
We have a mission work in Lebialem, which is a region characterized by Catholism. We shall have a mass evangelistic trip there by March. Keep praying for us.
Many thanks to you for your priceless efforts toward the work here in Cameroon. God bless you and He will reward you in due season. Do your best to share this report with others.
On this sad note: Keep my son Ray in your prayers. Many are sick now because we are in Hamatan, a season which makes the climate cool and windy. So many have a cough and catarrh now here in Cameroon. Those things can easily provoke malaria.
Evangelist Lah Joseph, one old preacher who loves CBIW and always visits at times and stays with some visiting instructors in the same room, died on Tuesday, January 6, at the age of 75 years. Keep his family in your prayers. His funeral will be this Tuesday.
God bless you and watch over you.
Elangwe and family
By His grace director CBIW
