Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from Cameroon. We continue to stay safe in Christ through His grace. Last week went on well as the beginning of a new quarter for the Gamma batch students. We do hope you are doing great and all is working for good where you are.
I am sorry that I don’t have pictures to share about the work this week because my camera is not with me.
Most of the students are sick, maybe because of the work last week in Lebialem or so, but we praise God that all who were doing fine in health went out for weekend evangelism. They returned safe and sound with glorious news about the growth of the Lord’s work in their different locations.
One of the converts in Lebialem is facing great persecution. She is the sister that was baptized and renounced Catholic doctrine whose family was waiting for her to enroll into the sisterhood. She told them NO and today the report reaching us is that the entire family came to fight with the preacher and all the other members. She ran and stood behind the preacher. It was not easy as they were ready to harm the preacher. You know this congregation is a young one and all the members are new converts. They did not know what to do. The family has given her the option to choose either to remain in the church of Christ and they will disown her, stop paying her school fees, or she can stop attending the church of Christ and go back to the Catholic denomination and enjoy rights in the family. Please pray for sister Dorothy and the young congregation, so that they will be able to handle this situation with care.
The Lord added two souls in His church. Keep the new converts in your prayers.
1) We have an invitation to come to Idenau communities to preach and see the need to start a new congregation. We shall study this and make a move in the near future.
2) The Mudeka congregation invited the staff and students for a Bible lectureship in their congregation by the end of this month. Keep all of that in your prayers.
3) Remember we are sending our students to Lebialem and other places for weekend evangelism, which will be of great importance.
God bless you. Thanks very much for all you are doing with us. God alone will reward you and replenish your source because we doubt if you were not part of this work what would happen. Do your best to share this with others. I will use this email to send my report. The other email is having problems and I do not have access to it again.
Elangwe and family
