We’re thankful that Bamenda was calm and secure enough in December so Ysabelle and Elianna could come home for Christmas break. When your kids already make you empty-nesters for high school, every family moment together is cherished. The girls caught up on sleep, Ysabelle sharpened her ballroom dancing skills and Elianna caught up on pleasure reading. They started 2nd semester January 8 back at RFIS. This is Ysabelle’s final semester of high school before she graduates June 6th.
The socio-political crisis and conflict is ongoing and increasing in the Anglophone regions of the country. Unrest is beginning to grow in parts of the francophone regions as well. In the midst of it, the church is working hard to be the hands and feet of Jesus during this time of increased suffering. We are so appreciative of the generosity expressed through the Cameroon Crisis Relief Fund https://nabconference.org/give/cameroon-crisis-relief/. The needs are at times overwhelming and heartbreaking, but we’re privileged to do our own part through your generosity. Check out a brief update video on how the fund is assisting victims of the conflict https://nabconference.org/important-updates-from-the-nab-family/.
