What we love about Cameroon….

Fresh tropical fruit (super sweet bananas, mangoes, pineapples, papaya, avocado)

  • Free coconuts on the tree in the front yard.
  • It’s always summer weather with consistent temperatures and daylight hours.
  • Smiles and excitement of children running up to us to shake our hands on the roads.
  • Slower pace without getting upset or in a rush.
  • Seeing the children on the road creations (cars made of trash complete with bamboo steering wheels or kites made of bamboo and plastic bags)
  • The many smiling greetings complete with conversations about families.
  • Parents vs. Kids soccer matches.
  • Sophie and her amazing faith in the Lord.
  • The boys playing outside, climbing trees and making mud clay creations.
  • The many hospitality opportunities.
  • Our cat, Fluffy who follows us around like a puppy.
  • Open pharmacy.
  • Awesome rain storms.
  • Lush rainforest.
  • The faith of the Cameroonians constantly challenging us.
  • Cameroonian worship time with the drums.
  • Nothing is wasted.
  • Watching God provide for all our needs and allowing us to help Cameroonians with their needs.
  • Continual reminder that life functions just fine without constant electricity.
  • Foam shoes are sold off a cart on the road (these are some of the only shoes the boys will wear).
  • Free coconuts from the front yard, free guava from the back yard and free mangoes from the neighbors yard.
  • CAM car races (pinewood derby that happens annually within the mission community).

    I never cease to be amazed at your wonderful attitude. In spite of the difficulties, you seem to be able to see the very positive in all things. I thank God for that, and continue to pray for you all.
