Trip

We traveled out of Yaoundé on April 3rd and 4th.  I (DeAnna) felt it necessary to see a US doctor who practices in Buea, Cameroon.  Buea is on the coastline beyond Douala, about 5 1/2 hours drive from Yaoundé.

It was a fast, long trip out of town.  For those of you who know the Leeton area, the roads between here and there are like EE Highway, but with tons of traffic including large motorcoaches, semi-trucks, slow heavy machinery and people driving at high speeds who pass on blind curves and hills.

I’m happy to report what I feared would be a repeat of the health problems I had in 2012 when I needed surgery, I do not have.  We were welcomed with warm hospitality.  Thank you to Bill and Trixy.  Thank you to Jeremiah and Brittney for opening your home to us and treating us to a meal.

Buea is close (20 minutes) to Limbe on the coast.  We stopped at Limbe because there are black sand beaches there.  Buea is at the foot of Mount Cameroon – the tallest mountain on the western side of Africa.  We were amazed at how wide this mountain is.  It seems that the city of Buea sits in the shadow of the mountain.  When we arrived we saw clouds and darkness behind the clouds, so we thought a rainstorm was approaching, but it wasn’t, it was the mountain.

    Isn’t it cool how God gives us little reminders of his greatness at just the right moments? Love you sister and praising God for a good report!
