Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from this end. We do hope this reports finds you all in good health.
We give thanks to God for all that He is doing for and through us and the work entrusted in our hands. Last week in CBIW showed an amount of growth from the Gamma batch students, as they have started picking up with the memory work that we do every day in CBIW. We call it speed test because I stay with them. I am doing that daily and it is enjoyable to them as they are entitled to come across 10 scriptures daily.
All the students are reporting well and in good health, but we bought medicines already as the season is making many sick. Keep praying for us and the work here.
Weekend evangelism is going on well. We are doing lots of survey and feasibility studies, which are constant mission field needs for our students, mostly as the first month runs out. We do our best to keep watch on them and know their levels before we shall know who is to move into strategic places for mission work.
All 22 students were in class and attentive as they followed the vocational training teacher, who is teaching them poultry farming for this quarter. This can help them when they are out of school. It will keep them going, as they can raise chicken for food and market it in their places of service. But the students are appealing to us to do our best to make a small demonstration farm, which they will use as practical application, just as they do practical application in the Wotutu congregation for preaching and teaching. Maybe you can help us get started even with 20 fowls.
One of our alpha batch students, evangelist Eddie Samuel, visited CBIW and was happy to sit again in the class in the cause of last week. Keep them in your prayers as they labor daily to grow the church of Christ in Cameroon.
Today after worship, as is a normal tradition here in the Wotutu congregation, our leaders will have a meeting with the new students to know them more, advise them, give their addresses, and contact numbers to the new students to reach them in case of any need. It is always good to see them advise them. Today was different because this is the third batch, so the advice was more practical with four years experience, as we move to the fifth year of training preachers in CBIW.
It is good for brethren to stay together in unity. In Wotutu we always hold our hands as we make closing prayers in our meetings. This is a strong sign of our unity that we should not break it no matter what. Keep us in your prayers as we serve God in our own capacity.
More communities are in need of the truth. Wow! I am excited to take students to different communities for evangelism. Calls our coming our way. Here at CBIW we call it the Macedonian call. We can see how the field is ripe, but few laborers. Keep praying for the ones God has given into our hands to go and reach out that we should always have the means to go where the gospel is calling.
God bless you for all your love, prayers, and sacrifice to keep this work moving. You will be remembered one day before God for your good works. We thank you for all that you are doing. God bless you and replenish your resources in Jesus name.
Do your best to share this report with others.
Elangwe and family
