Dear Family and Friends,

Walter participating in mission field security management seminar

During this winter season of home assignment, we are experiencing all kinds of weather – mild temperatures, extreme cold, significant snowfalls, then spring-like conditions and ice storms. Whatever comes our way, we are obliged to accept and hopefully make the most of it. As with the weather, we are endeavoring to appreciate the situations in life God has given us. This is not always easy.

We keep seeking out news from Cameroon, hoping for an improvement to the socio-political situation. Most of the news (killings, lack of reconciling) compel us to pray more that God would intervene and bring His peace to the situation. Please pray that He moves the marginalized English-speaking population and the Government to a desire to reconcile.

In early December, Walter took part in a one-week seminar on mission field security management in Waxhaw, NC, hosted by Crisis Consulting International. The insights and strategies shared were dealing with mission field security crises situations. The goal is continuing the Great Commission work even in hard and dangerous places.

Florence & Walter giving a church mission report

Through various weather conditions we have been able to continue visiting supporting churches, appreciating their partnership and reporting on the last 4-year term in Cameroon. We are humbled and honoured to be part of the family of God and be received so warmly. We are also thankful for the generous response to support the Cameroon Crisis Relief Fund to assist the displaced, wounded and oppressed.


May God bless His people and His church in the changing situations He brings you.

In Christ,

Walter & Florence
