Cameroon Vision Trip

Ten years ago this May, we boarded a plan for Niger, West Africa where Mark served for a year as the Youth Pastor for the missionary kids at Sahel Academy. Hannah was 22 months old. And now, we are preparing to go back to Africa! Hannah is eleven and Joshua, who has only heard stories about our time in Africa before he was born, is seven.

We are leaving soon for our Vision Trip to Cameroon, Central Africa. We’ll be there for 9 days.   We are looking forward to time with the City Team Leader and his family, meeting other missionaries serving in Yaounde, learning about ministries happening there, and visiting Rain Forest International School. We are taking this vision trip for confirmation that Cameroon is where God would have our family move to; to serve Him and do His work.

We wonder what life in Cameroon is like: What are the people like? What kind of food do they eat? How do they dress? Where will we shop and what can we buy? What kind of house might we live in? What is every-day life like there? We’re excited to hear, smell, and see Cameroon!

We would appreciate prayer for our family as we go. Will you pray:

* that God will lead our meetings and our conversations with the missionaries and the nationals.

* for the Lord’s confirmation if this is where He would have us go and that He would give us further insight into the ministry that we are to be a part of.

* that God will bless our kids with a special friend (or two, or three!!) who they could look forward to going back to, if God takes us there long-term.

* for good health so that we can make the most of each day.

“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth. Your salvation among all nations.”

Psalm 67:1-2
