news from cameroon

We are very happy to announce that 10 brethren with 32 Sunday School children and contacts are now meeting in their new temporary ecclesial hall.  The hall measures 8m x 4m with 10 benches and a table.  We thank the CBM welfare and the Ludlow ecclesia for their support.

I thank God for allowing me to write to you.  God opened my eyes and I was baptized at Epen-Bangem. Today my eyes are not only opened, but God is sending me to preach the gospel.  At present I am teaching nine people;  God is guiding them and me.  Above all, I would like you to send me Bible Basics to help me in my teaching.
Bro. Ntungwe Felix

We plead with you by this letter to keep sending us any preaching material you have produced.  We cannot pay, but we know that you understand and will send us your precious works so that we can also share them.
Bro. Oliver Mbiaoh

I hope you and rest of the Gospel News team are doing fine. I am so sorry for the long silence due to internet failure. Many thanks for sending us every edition of Gospel News. I do pray for all our brethren, especially those who are facing persecution in the Moslem world. We, the brethren of the Mutengene ecclesia, are looking forward to welcoming our brethren from the UK in the days ahead, we do hope (God willing) we shall share the good news together.

The crime of Calvary was the work of many hands.  Was it Caiaphas and the priests, eager to satisfy their life of ease, profit and comfort? Was it Pilate, held in the web of past administrative errors, now determined at all costs to avoid another appeal to Caesar and to protect his career?  Or was it Herod?  Was it the mob who shouted applause for Jesus’ crucifixion? Or the soldiers who obeyed orders and drove nails through His flesh. But what was our Lord’s reaction amidst all of this?  Luke 23:28 tells us, “Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves”.  We can identify ourselves with the aforementioned people if we fail to acknowledge that Christ died for our salvation and live by his commandments, as we await his second coming.

The Wum ecclesia report with sadness the falling asleep of our Bro. Beng Lawrence on October 23, 2004.  He sleeps in the Lord until the Master returns.   Live by faith not by sight:  “In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death.  And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him, and said, Thus says the Lord, set your house in order, for you shall die;  you shall not recover.  Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, saying, Remember now. O Lord, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept bitterly.”  The Lord said to Isaiah, “Turn back, and say to Hezekiah the prince of my people, Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father, I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you;  on the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord.  And I will add fifteen years to your life” (2 Kings 20:1-6).  Here we see God’s power over life and death, health and sickness.  Let us follow after the things of the Name and of the Kingdom, then we shall not fear sickness or death.  “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you.  He will never permit the righteous to be moved” (Ps. 55:22).

I thank the Lord for leading me where heavenly pastures are to be found.  I also thank Jesus for his priesthood.  I thank you people very much for the spiritual material you sent. I have been baptized and fellowship with those in Christ of the Wum ecclesia. I beg you: I don’t have a complete Bible and planner or a Bible Basics.  Please, if you will, send everything to my post box. I will be grateful for this.
