NOTE: Bibles and teaching contacts in Cape Town are reaching far into all of Africa. Here is a report Steve just sent.
My friends and coworkers in Cameroon have sent another update. What they have to deal with and how their enthusiasm for the Lord propels them to works of excellence, is an example for us all.
Dearest in Christ,
Greetings and love from your brothers and sisters here in wotutu in particular and Cameroon as a whole . WE do hope you are doing great in all that you do for the Lord and family. By His special grace we are doing better in health and our activities.
I bring to you our weekly report now .God is still sitting on the throne ,so He continue to help us to accomplish His mission for mankind in our communities and our country Cameroon. CBIW students are back in school except one who is still sick Namana Martin.
Let me share some pictures with you .
You can see our students in class for the last quarter of their first year of studies , they started off with this quarter with Leadership , as you can see me in class , teaching the course , it is a great course as they can testify within this week.Keep them in your prayers as to prepare to grow , so that their growth will affect and impact many in their respective ministries.
This pictures was taken to show hard working students ,past Friday , from left brother Dikana Ngoe me in the middle and right is brother Enow Elvis who came out best students in memory work , it is part of our program that our students start up every day with what we CALL SPEED TEST which BOOK ,CHAPTER, VERSE ,So these students performed well and I decided to award them these suit which was donated to us by CBIW coordinator during his last visit in June ,I decided to give to those who really work for it because it was not enough for all the students to have one pair each , to avoid any mix feelings from others that was the best way to give it out.
Two more students who were not on campus when we gave out reports made it this week to campus safe and strong , with a great news of souls being added .You can see brother Julius wamo who baptized brother Samuel in Mudeka congregation where he serve during his campaign.
Brother Julius is seen in the river where he baptized sister Helen , brother Oliver Anthony who was sick also return much better and he is taking treatment here in CBIW, a total of 9 souls where added to the church in those areas making a total of 54 souls during our campaign , please keep these souls in your prayers as we continue to make efforts to help them stay in Christ mostly in Congregations that there is no preacher.
The week was characterized with sorrow as we loss sister Martha Mesumbe at the age of 25 years , she was a Christian barely 1 year and the Lord called her home , you can see me addressing the crowd on the topic awareness,making many to know that awareness goes with information and if you are NOT INFORM THEN YOU WILL BE DEFORM ,the gospel is out to help many as they will obey to follow Jesus ,her burial went on well , we give glory to God .
Our weekend evangelism continue to make impact to those congregations that we send our students on weekly basis ,Today our young congregation in Batoke worshipped 21 while the revived congregation in Ediki worship 29 , because some of our brethren travel out for family responsibilities ,we praise God for the growth of His church in those areas .Keep the work in your prayers.
1 WE shall be in Mbanga congregation from the 17th to the 20th October for mass evangelism in that young congregation which barely one year and few months old , it is a place with diversity of people speaking French and English but it is dominated by French speaking people , our presence will help with the work there keep us in your prayers.
2 The church of Christ in Munyenge behind the Cameroon mountain is inviting us also a for four days house to house evangelism from by the end of the month , please we are still contemplating if we shall make the trip because moving with all the students out of campus twice in a month is huge financial burden, keep us in your prayers as our hearts move towards the gospel is calling.
God bless you for accepting the privilege to serve the Lord in this capacity with us as we reach out to many communities and touching souls with the undiluted message to save many who will believe .God will reward you in due season, you are always in our prayers and we are happy that we are doing this , pray for us and do your best to share this report with others.God bless you.
Elangwe and family
By His grace Director CBIW
