I may begin to start each HOWDY with the words: it was a great day because each one is in Cameroon. Here is what transpired today:
I had a great night’s rest and slept until 9:30. The Lord has blessed me in more ways than I can imagine and one of the great blessings I have is that I sleep well, even on the first night after I have traveled. I truly thank the Lord for the way He blesses me! I hopped a machine and went to a grocery store. It was very nice with automatic doors! I then came back and met Jean Claude and Mary. I spoke with Mary about the women’s seminars and will speak with all of the French women on the 1st of next month. They are really doing a great job. We then went to eat lunch and had a great time as well as great food. Jean Claude then hopped a machine to the Post Office while Mary and I got on machines back to the hotel. After they left I got on another machine (cannot get too much of good thing) to another grocery store because that fine store this morning did not have any Snickers or Mars Bars but I have now rectified that problem. I will Skype Linda and Charlie Brown soon and then relax. Tomorrow I will visit with Vincent and Julien. On Saturday Jean Claude and I will begin our work in earnest. I am using today and tomorrow for a number of things that I will not have time to do once the campaign begins. The handsome young man on the left below is our 12 year old grandson, Junior. Then I have a picture of Jean Claude and Mary on the right.
1. I know I say this at least once on each trip so I am going to get it out of the way today. I am aware that I repeat myself on many occasions. Sometimes they are intentional while other times it is simply a case of bad memory. So, if I talk about this tomorrow or next week you will know it is a lapse of memory. Here goes: if you have high speed internet you need to thank the Lord for that GREAT blessing. Now; my modem is pretty fast but no match for my Fios.
2. I was at lunch today with Jean Claude and Mary and he inquired as to what Bapp thought about Cameroon. Well, I told him that she had a blast and hopes to make another trip. He then said: that girl can talk! Well, I already knew that. I take her to lunch each Monday and I watch her fork. You see, once she piles a bunch of food in I have my opening to say something!
3. Looking both ways before you cross the street is different here than in the States. For example, if you are crossing a street that has a median you only need to look to your left. Correct? No, you need to look both ways because there are machines coming on the wrong side of the median so you could get trampled if you weren’t paying attention.
Thanks for your prayers. I appreciate all of your emails as well.
