More news from Cameroon

By now some of you may have heard of the rioting, looting and burning going in Cameroon. Unfortunately it’s true. There are serious problems in the major cities of Cameroon right now and some of our ministry colleagues living in these cities are very concerned. Roads are blockaded and there is little or no traffic in many cities. Even out here in “the bush” roads are blocked. But, here in Binka things are quiet! We are listening to the news and calling friends to see how they are but we are safe in our little village. Please be praying that things would quiet down in Cameroon and that people would be safe from the rioting and mobs.

We also just returned from a 3 week trip back to the Eastern Province ministering to the Fulbe refugees. We found that most of the refugees are doing okay and the UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) has been busy distributing food supplies. Our future plans with the refugees will continue to be focused on helping them get started again so that they aren’t dependent on outside aid. We’ll be writing more soon, but wanted to get this prayer request off right away.

Please join us in praying for our dear friends and for this country that we love. Our hearts ache as we hear of the violence and destruction.
