The Cameroon Team has safely arrived in country.Both our flights were delayed two hours but it was not a problem with the connections. We arrived at the Miami airport at 2 AM commissioning night and spent a very cold night in the airport, we were just so happy that there were no mosquitos.We had a four hour layover in Paris which most of us slept through.
We arrived in Cameroon at 9 PM and by the time we got our luggage and made it to the guesthouse it was 11PM. We were grateful that every bag made it in. After a meal of rice, chicken and pineapple we went to bed at 12:30.
We got up at 7 AM had a breakfast of bread, tea and scrambled eggs and traveled the 5 hours to the Teen Missions in Cameroon base here in Bamenda. We need to get supplies and drop off supplies we were carrying for the base and pick up staff and students to travel with us to the bush. The team enjoyed the trip in a mini van and we were happy to have a meal waiting for us when we arrived. The national staff greeted us and the team loved the rally. We are sleeping in the dorms in bunk beds, which the team is grateful for. We are all loving Cameroon.
The National Boot Camp is running and our team is excited to be a part of the evening rallies until Sat. night. Vitalis Fon (national staff member) asked the team if they would be willing to teach the national teams some children’s games and songs and our team of Sarah, William, Jon-Michael, Brittinay, Braxton, and Ami were very excited to do that. He also asked if we would do a phonics class Thursday and Friday. Our team was really excited to put those phonics classes to use.
