Reaching Beyond Cape Town
Dear Friends and Supporters
Pastor Elangwe from Cameroon e-mailed me with another report, which I have pasted to the bottom of this e-mail, together with his photographs. He is sending me regular reports and wants me to come an teach in Cameroon!
This is a dedicated pastor who travels throughout his country, preaching the gospel. I have never met him personally and only know him through a few phones calls and giving Bibles.
SACM has moved beyond the borders of just South Africa. Something that my Dad wanted but never accomplished in his lifetime. Africa is ripe for the gospel unlike many countries in the world.
I stand in awe of the power of the Bible’s ability to change lives because of so many dedicated Christians in America and so many committed pastor and teachers in Africa who struggle every day to take the message of hope to the lost.
Dearest in Christ,
WE bring love and gratitude to God for His great love towards us . We do hope you are doing great with the work and family. Last week went on well in CBIW ,just for some students and members of our congregation who are sick, we continue to keep them in our prayers.
WE travel out again for a call to help evangelize the community of Munyenge village which is really far from Wotutu with bad road which is too rocky because it is a mountainous community.
Let me share some pictures of event that took place here last week. We divided ourselves again, some students went to Ediki, Batoke and Mile four closer to Wotutu.
Immediately we arrived Munyenge village with the long journey and bad road, we rested and early the next day we started house to house evangelism with the 3 instructors from CBIW and our students as you can see them.
These are sisters in Munyenge village, who welcomed us and were very happy to cook food us throughout our stay in the village, we appreciated them for such a good gesture for the Lord.
This is brother Ekelle Theiry who baptized brother Rudrique into Christ. Keep him in your prayers to grow in the faith.
Brother Rudrique was buried with Christ in water Baptism, God bless the entire campaign with 5 precious souls. Keep them in your prayers because all of them were youths who are energetic for the work and to get their friends involve in Christ business in the future.
A cross section of our worship this morning in the village, many came that the small wooden hall could not contain us, we sat outside under this canopy .The young lady Ebang Yvette sitting next to me was also baptized, she was overwhelmed to be part of the new testament worship, she is the first in their home and is on a personal evangelism to make Christ known to her staunch Roman Catholic background, she asked for tracts that we were unable to provide her with. PLEASE HELP POST SOME TRACTS TO US IF YOU HAVE THEM.
This is the first Christian school being run by us in our community, Brightland Christian Academy is out to help these young minds know Christ and His church as they grow up, our graduate Nsong Nelson is there daily to teach the Bible and to do devotionals daily to the kids and teachers, IT IS GOOD TO TRAIN CHILDREN THAN TO REPAIR ADULTS, that is what we are focus on, if God help us train these children well, then the church of Christ in Cameroon will not be the same again in the near future, please come join us achieve this vision.
1. We continue with Ediki, Batoke work weekly.
2. WE are called again to go and revive the dead congregation in Bafia village, we passed through the village on our way to Munyenge. It was an appeal from a sister, we have accepted, everywhere with Jesus we can safely go. Keep us in your prayers, many Cameroonians are appreciative to the work that is going on in Cameroon because of CBIW, many thanks and prayers goes to God for you who stand by us to accomplish God’s plan in our country.
WE say thank you God for all that you do for the work here, we thank God daily for you as you stand by us and help us accomplish this great task daily. God alone will reward you and continue to watch over you, your family and the congregation where you worship. Do your best to share this report with others.
Elangwe and family.
By His grace Director CBIW
