I am acutely aware, as you are, that the spiritual is so much more important than the physical. Having said that I must begin with some really GREAT news regarding Linda. I Skyped with her earlier and she got her results from the MRI she had done 2 weeks ago. She has 4 cysts but they are common and not Cancerous. Praise God! She will go back for a follow-up in 3 months and then see the Cancer doctor once a year. Thank you so much for your prayers.
Got up at 6:15 and departed on time. No complaints whatsoever regarding the hotel in Sangmelima or anything else, for that matter. The pictures below were taken before we left. On the left from l-r is: Candace, Prosper, Chris and Florence (the wife of Prosper who was baptized yesterday). If you notice “rabbit ears” on Chris it is because of Jean Claude who was standing behind. The picture on the right is of Julien and Jean Claude. The trip was smooth and we made it to the hotel at about 11. Did some unpacking and left for a grocery store. I have good news and bad news from the store: the good news is that I was able to get a package of Mini Mars Bars (have already consumed 3 of them). The bad news is that they had no Coke Zero so I am going to have to drink the ‘real thing’ for the next 5 days which means I may begin looking like Teresa Blaisdell, if you know what I mean. BTW: have I told you recently what a wonderful person she is! Her husband is another story which only proves that ‘opposites attract’. The hotel is very nice and Jan is happy because she has a toilet seat. I thought it was only little kids who got excited about small things. A/C is so cold that I have had to turn it down which goes against everything I have learned in 30 years of working on this marvelous continent. We had supper and it was very delicious. Didn’t get all of our orders correct and poor Jan didn’t get her food until we were all finished. I felt bad that we all left her to eat alone. Just kidding! I have been doing various “catch-up” things as these campaigns require so much time. Tomorrow we will all work in Nkoabang where Simon preaches. We will teach prospects in the morning and then meet for a worship service at 5. I have already had my shower and am in pretty good shape, time-wise. I think I can be in bed by 11. We are all well and thank you so much for all of your prayers.
