Debrief and Renewal

by: Yuri Nakano

I am spending a lot of time in my 2000 Mazda driving around Alberta this summer. It has been a blessing to visit many partners of the gospel in the churches that are praying for me and supporting me. I’ve been enjoying meeting many brothers and sisters in Christ who are prayer warriors.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, July 16, we started our journey back to Cameroon with a one hour drive to Toronto’s airport.  Were we ready?  Are we ever ready?  From Toronto we flew to Montreal, then took an overnight flight to Brussels, Belgium, arriving in the early morning there.  We waited in the terminal until the late afternoon, then boarded our flight to Douala, Cameroon.
