Dearest in Christ,
We send you greetings from the beautiful nation of Cameroon and more precisely from the village of Wotutu. I write this report with great joy in my heart to be able to share with you what made news in Cameroon last week. We had a 5 day break here in BVBIC-Wotutu and we used those five days to make Jesus and His church known in Ashum community. This took us to 3 other villages sharing common boundaries with Ashum, which was our main target, Some brethren whose village of origin is Ashum decided to invite us to come and help established a congregation in their village. They don’t live there but they want by all cost for a congregation of the church of Christ to be in their village, so that their friends, family members and strangers can possibly come closer to the truth.
They called it the Ashum for Christ project. They supplied the accommodations, food, and medicine for us as we spent time sharing the good news. It was awesome for us to be a part of the calling to go to Ashum and preach. As I write this report, all of the students, some staff, and some graduates that we took to Ashum, are all back safe and sound, although we are all very tired and worn out because of the intensive work and the long distances that we covered. Thank you for your prayers towards this project.
The good news is there were 55 new converts and 9 restored Christians. It was amazing to harvest 55 souls with 5 days of our break. This is the highest number of baptisms at one time for any program in Cameroon. In 2003 during a lectureship 54 baptisms were recorded. This week we break that history. A new beginning has just begun in Cameroon. Please, please pray for us and the work in our hands. We shall have some challenges but it is clear that the field is ripe. We established 3 new congregations. Ashum, Bakebe and Nfaitock villages now have congregations. Eyang was revived and restored. Please keep these works in your prayers. Our students will begin traveling long distances every Friday to make sure these congregations are nurtured and kept safe.
We are looking for more evangelistic opportunities to virgin land.
God bless you. May the good God that has allowed you to stand with us to help expand His kingdom, bless you and grant you your heart desires. Keep up the great work. Please share this good news with others.
Elangwe and family
By His grace director BVBIC-Wotutu
