February 2011 Prayer Update

As I write this, it’s Feb. 2 and snow is blasting Midwest USA.  We’re in hot dry season, but just got a cool breeze and a few drops of rain – the first in WEEKS!  Whether you’re enjoying warm sunny weather or a hot chocolate at the fireplace, we appreciate you taking a few minutes to pray for our ministry this month.

Praise God with us for answers to January’s requests:

  1. Emmanuel our day guard’s health.  He had collapsed from unknown cause and was taken to a local clinic for treatment.  After about a week of rest and malaria treatment, he returned to good health and to work – but was unable to travel to his village, so his wife came here for a few days.
  2. Samantha Barron’s Dec. 28 arrival; a Covenant short term teacher at RFIS, she had a very short time to adjust to life in Cameroon before she began teaching.
  3. Mark Post’s trip here (Jan. 20-29) to help us with plans for the new UBAC Hostel and other housing on the Covenant/Free Church property adjacent to RFIS campus.  This architect from our home church in Grand Rapids was a great help and encouragement.  For more on his trip click here.
  4. Benjamin has reached 11 years old.  Ron took him and his buddies out to RFIS for a campout under the stars.

Pray with us in February for:

  1. Inspection for accreditation Feb. 14 – that Ron’s able to accomplish all the little details needed before the inspection (like exit signs, fire escape routes, and installation of an alarm system)
  2. Spiritual emphasis week and High School Retreat is coming up this month (Feb 7-11).  Please pray for the speakers and students at the high school, middle school and elementary school as well.  Not all the students come from missionary families or even Christian backgrounds.
  3. Pray us through preparations for our Covenant Fellowship  March 21-25 in Kribi, Cameroon.  Covenant missionaries serving in Africa will be here for week of spiritual refreshment and meetings.  We who live in Cameroon need to start planning for it now.
