It is great to be back in Douala traffic (note picture below). This has truly been a short trip (tell that to Linda) and yet it seems a month ago that we left Douala for the North. As stated in earlier missives; this was the most exhausting trip of the 86 and yet so rewarding. Here is how the day unfolded; got up at 6 after another good night’s rest and left Bertoua at 7:05. Stopped at a Petrol station and got some OJ and Plantain Chips. I do not like Plantain cooked but I really like the chips. I can’t remember all of the ingredients but it was packed full of vitamins, minerals and good stuff like that! I can’t remember how long I told you this trip would take but we arrived at 5:00pm. On the way we were able to visit with Toko William who is pictured below. He was the preacher of the Kake II Church of Christ and an excellent one. All of the houses on the main road in Kake have been destroyed because of the Crisis. The church cannot meet but some do so in the bush. The Crisis has caused so many to be scattered. Toko is in Ayos (not sure if I spelled that correctly) and is trying to start the church. One of his biggest problems is that he must learn French. The Crisis has divided so many families as parents send their children to live with friends or relatives wherever they can. My heart breaks every time I think of the trouble that this Crisis is causing.
The hotel is very nice and Jean Claude ordered supper for me and then he and Mary left to go home. BTW: I did not have Buzzgetti tonight! He has a meeting in Limbe tomorrow so I will not see him until Wednesday which is when I fly out. I have been working on Campaign Pictures and will do some other stuff regarding packing. Linda is at an afternoon movie with Michael and his clan so I will Skype with her later. We are doing fine and thank you for your continued prayers.
