Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from Cameroon. We are thankful to God for another new week. God is gracious to us helping us to accomplish the task of preaching and teaching daily.
This week, BVBIC and the congregations here are well. God took us to mission fields and brought us back safe and sound. The students in the Bible college are doing fine, happily studying to make themselves approved workmen who will not be ashamed, but divide the truth accordingly with joy in their respective locations after graduation come the end of this year.
Last week I spent some days in Yaoundé because we were supposed to submit documents to the ministry of social affairs. The hundreds of pages documents were submitted successfully and upon our return we met my son Ray sick. As I write this email, I am writing it in a ward in the hospital where my son is hospitalized. Keep Ray Jr. in your prayers.
The students who went out for weekend evangelism have returned, but I got the development of the works in the locations on the phone because I am not on campus now. Two souls were baptized yesterday. As they stood beside the river, they were prepared by our students to be baptized.
Yesterday, one of our alpha batch graduates, evangelist Namina Benard, who since graduation continues faithfully serving the Lord in the Mondoni Native congregation, finally found his missing rib yesterday. I was honored to be the speaker during the ceremony; it was colorful and it was also time to meet many of our graduates who came to grace the ceremony with their presence.
The Kumbo Bible school is inviting us in May for their second scholarships lectureship. We wait on the approval for us to attend from our coordinator and overseeing eldership. We were there during the first one and this time around they are fixing to give a topic to teach there.
Many thanks to you all for your help. God bless you for all that you are doing for the work here. Please share this work with others. I also have interest to attend the African claiming Africa for Christ conference in Senegal between August 4 -8 2016. Please, if you wish to attend to meet other brethren who are doing missionary works in Africa, you can go online and see how you can get an invitation www.ACACsenegal2016.org. I will solicit for any help to make it through there, mostly as other brethren will be teaching on many other subjects ranges from Congregational Development, Evangelism, Orphanage Care, and Bible colleges. It is rich as we can also have time to share with others what we are doing. I attended the last one four years ago in Zambia and attending this one will be of great help to what I am doing here.
God bless you.
Elangwe and family
