Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from Cameroon. We do hope you are doing great in health and in all that you do. God bless you and keep you strong as you carry on with your work for the Lord.
I am writing this report after a wonderful worship service. After the worship many could not leave the church hall because of a heavy down pour of rain that came. Praise God for the weather to keep the soil rich for farmers to farm it.
Join us to praise God for brother Steve who came from the USA to teach a short course for one week in the preaching school. He taught with wisdom and authority “The Prison Epistles.” The students gained a lot from it and were exposed to those great books.
The BVBIC-Wotutu spirit to our noble instructors is strong. From the classroom they are out on house to house evangelism reaching out to people, touching lives with the truth. What a calling. Keep them in your prayers as they start moving home on Tuesday.
Our students will use any opportunity to preach and tell someone Jesus cares and loves, mostly to our visitors who worship with us.
Our students are always blessed to have fine sound instructors who are solid with the doctrine of Christ.We are learning from their lifestyles even after classroom studies.
Sister Nancy is our coordinators wife. This was her first time to come over to the school and she decided to teach our ladies, not only in the Wotutu congregation, but all over the country of Cameroon. The ladies day was on the theme of “Blossoming into a Life of Christ” Gal. 2:20. It was great, as sisters from many other congregations were impressed for the one day, staying together in prayers, songs, and studying the word. They pray it can become an annual event in the life of the school and the Wotutu congregation.
Sisters in Cameroon are eager to learn more, to add to their own learning. They came from many congregations and there were 163 ladies. That was a signal to me that our sisters love the Lord and want to know more. Many of them came to me to asking for women’s books and books to teach children. I assured them that the ocean container from Mission Printing will contain books that will help them in their congregations to teach other sisters and children. It was really another page for women’s ministry in Cameroon. Please, please pray for this to stand in Africa. We are aware that if a woman is empowered, then the the entire family and the community is empowered. Please come join us empower our women.
The one day ladies event was characterized with smiles, fellowship, laughter, and meeting others. Wow, it was great how the women were ready to move to a new page in their spiritual lives. Keep the work in Cameroon in your prayers.
Patricia came from another congregation in the village of Bekoko. She came to be part of the ladies day and her studies were fine tuned. She saw the great need of not delaying her salvation and she obeyed the gospel with smiles and satisfaction about the church of Christ, one big family, not only in her small village in Bekoko.
She obeyed the gospel in Wotutu and brother Steve baptized her into Christ after having time to study with her. Keep her in your prayers to grow.
Our students were suppose to be on their way now for campaign, but we have a delayed because we are expecting our Mission Printing container anytime now. If they leave, it will be difficult for us to off load the truck that will bring the container of tracts. Many are eager and praying for the container to come fast. It is always good as it eases evangelism as you preach and leave something that the prospect can study some more.
God bless you. Thank you for standing by us. Thanks very much. From our hearts we say this because if not of you I doubt how possible and smooth this work would be. God bless you as you share with others.
Elangwe and family
By His grace Director BVBIC-Wotutu
