Dear All:

Well, it is almost time to embark on another journey to Cameroon. Lord willing, this will be my 71st trip to Africa since 1988. When I made my first trip I was a local preacher and figured after that journey that I would make one trip per year and remain in local work. Well, the Lord had other plans and there is no way that I could have envisioned what has transpired over these 25 years. At any rate, the Lord has truly blessed me. Chris Simmons and Mark Drew will join me on this journey and I know you will keep all of us in prayer and for that, we are thankful. In subsequent ‘howdys’ I will say more about the team. Our plan, with the help of the Lord, is to work with 12 congregations in both evangelization and encouraging our Cameroonian brethren. My plan will be to send the first howdy from Douala on Thursday night. After that time I will be able to post some ‘African’ pictures but for now you will have to look at the wonderful picture of a rising star in basketball. Her name is Amanda Philips and when she grows up I am sure she will be a great player. Amanda is the little sister of our daughter-in-law. Thanks for your prayers and feel free to email me at That is actually the best way to send rather than responding to the blog. Lord willing, we will take off this coming Tuesday from DFW and overnight in Paris on Wednesday. Once again, thanks so much for your prayers.

In Christ,

Jim Corner
