Church plant and Outreach to Loussou

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2 (KJV). This scripture was enacted in Loussou, a Baka pygmy settlement in the East Region of Cameroon, where BFL reached out early in May to plant a new church. From Tuesday, 9th to Friday 12th May 2017, Bread for Life in partnership with a team from First Baptist Church Redwater (comprising: Todd Reed, Corey Andrew, Kollin Aubrey, Robbins Jr, & Karen Daneen), witnessed the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of this small community. We saw souls turning to Christ and registered 11 water baptisms. The local Pastor (Joachim), wife (Janet) and the believers were greatly encouraged. Our Regional Coordinator for the East, Pastor Charles Goris, is providing leadership and mentoring to this new church. We started molding blocks in a bid to build a decent church house. BFL also donated jerseys and soccer balls to the Government Primary School Loussou.

 

Water at Beulahland Farms in Dimako

Despite initial challenges, our borehole water project at the Beulahland Farms in Dimako registered a breakthrough with the drilling of water on May 8 2017. With water already gushing out from the borehole, the next step is to construct a the tower and install solar panels. This industrial system will not only serve as irrigation at the farm but provide the inhabitants of surrounding villages with portable drinking water. 




Month of May at Ray of Hope Academy (ROHA), Douala

May was a very busy month at Ray of Hope Academy, Douala as we received a visiting Occupational Therapist specialist Ms. Karen Daneen Robbins from the US. Ms. Robbins arrived on the 11th of May, and spent two weeks on campus working with staffs, parents and kids. She drew from her 20 years plus experience in the field of special needs education to provide training, counsel and guidance for our staff. Our staff gained insight and inspiration from the visiting educator who encouraged them to keep up with their good job and gave tips on how to work with individual kids.

Also in the month of May was held a planning meeting for the 2017/2018 Academic Year during which basic requirements to start off the next academic year and other vital issues were discussed. Staff members touched on issues like the maximization of space, portioning of classrooms, available scholarships as well as the enrollment requirements.

 

 

Africa Peace, Security and Synergy Inaugural Summit

“Encouraging. Inspiring. Synergistic. Friendships. Strategic. Fellowship” is how Rev Ehabe described his recent trip to Washington DC.  Rev Ehabe was invited to participate at the "Inaugural Africa Peace and Security Summit" organized by African professionals in the US. The summit was held from June 22 to June 26 at the Hilton Washington, DC of Gaithersburg in Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC.

This historic continent-wide summit brought Christian leaders of strategic influence from several African countries and the diaspora; stakeholders and allies to dialogue and chat a unified and sustainable path to peaceful co-existence of all Africans and to build solidarity in seeking help for all victims – Christians and non-Christian.

Many important relationships were developed as a result of this trip. Please be praying as the various committees set up continue to dialogue and develop a sound and solid Christian response to Islamization of Africa and the threat of terrorism.  Rev Ehabe spoke on “The Christian Response to Terrorism….. and delivered a paper which will soon be published.

 

Ray of Hope End of School Year Celebration

Pupils, staff, parents, guest and well-wishers of Ray of Hope Academy, Douala converged at the school premises on Saturday June 3rd for the school's first end of school year get together. It was a colorful ceremony during which pupils showcased their talents through songs, academic presentations, ballet dance and an insightful debate on whether or not education in Cameroon should be fully inclusive. Taking the floor in front of an audience over around 50 persons, Kolle Sone (a primary four pupil of ROHA) made a compelling case on why education in Cameroon should be inclusive emphasizing that all parents want their kids to be accepted by their peers. Speaking against the motion, another ROHA senior pupil Keren argues that some inclusive classrooms are grappling with behavioral concerns. Another major highlight in the end of year ceremony was the award of prizes to meritorious staff. The prize for punctuality went to Ms. Tuifon Diligence; that for assiduity and commitment went to Ms. Stephanie Mimbang meanwhile the school's head teacher Ms. Ebob Ashu was given an award for leadership skills and great commitment.
