Cameroon in Bamenda 12015

The Cameroon team is currently in Bamenda at the Teen Missions base.  We arrived late Thursday evening. We had difficulty finding a bus large enough to accommodate both our large team and all our bags.  We had to send about 12 bags with one of the national Bible school students by public transport to get all the bags here.

The team is sleeping in tents on a concrete floor covered by a roof.  We have separate bathing and toilets for boys and girls.  The kids are adjusting to the cooler weather and the 4000 foot elevation.

Friday we rested did laundry and bought supplies for the kitchen.  Saturday the team organized our eyeglasses worked on memory verses and it was arrival day for the national boot camp and the preformed in the rally.  This team sings amazing.   Sunday we attended a local church walking for 25 minutes to get there.  They really enjoyed their first national church service.  We spent the rest of the day with classes and memory review and quiz practice.

Today , Monday we divided the group into 4 groups to help teach the national Boot Camp teens a few things they need for the field.  We will do this today and tomorrow and then early Wednesday we head to the first rescue unit to do our first clinic.  It is taking some time to gather the needed medical supplies and to inform the villages of our arrival.  The team is having a blast teaching.

The groups are.  Phonics:  Kirsten, Hannah, Kami, Michal , and Kierra.  Teaching American children games: Morgan, Trey , Lisa ,Eli , JJ, Caleb , Taylor , Kim , and James teaching our songs: Miriam, Tyler , Nathan , Josiah , Paige , Jordyn , Polly and Leah.  Helping in the national kitchen is: mark, Aaron, Peter , Rachel , Elizabeth and Sammy and Kierra are KP today.

Each night our kids preform in the rally. Last night they did a drama and tonight they are doing a song and puppets.   In the afternoon we will do our library reading bible study and we are giving a class on medical treatments. Tomorrow they are going to practice doing eyeglass exams on the. National team members so they can learn to understand the accents.

We have been fighting a few colds.

Thank you for your prayers we love These kids they are great.

  6. I have a guest here in my home, Jim Michals, who has been to Bamenda! He said to tell you he is the nephew of the man who built the eye clinic there, Albert Stober. He figures you are all learning to talk “pigeon” and sends you the greeting, “Now God He like you plenty. I talk for true.” Rachel, do you you remember Mr. Michaels? He sends you greetings. Love to you and prayers for everyone with colds! From Rachel’s grandparents.
