Pray for our Missionaries

Hello Prayer Warriors,
Today we received the news that my aunt, my Mom’s sister, has only a few weeks to live. It was just around two weeks ago that she fell ill and they discovered that she has tumors in her brains. She has been deteriorating very quickly. It has been a shock for the family.
 
Today my Mom and I are travelling to go and see her probably for the last time, unless God grants us the miracle we have been asking for. I ask that you pray for my Mom. She is very close to her sister. Mom is still grieving the loss of my Dad and now is facing the loss of her sister so it has been a very difficult time for her. I am so thankful that the Lord, in his perfect timing, allowed me to be here for my Mom during all of this. Please pray with us for a miracle for my Aunt Louise. Please pray for my cousins who are having to all of a sudden manage all her doctors’ visits, tests and treatment while facing the reality of her possible passing.
 
What consoles us and gives us hope is the fact that she is a child of God.
 
Once again, thank you so much for praying for me and my family. Your prayers make all the difference!

Hello Everyone,
My Mom and I were not able to continue on our trip to see my Aunt. About a half hour into the trip it started raining. The rain proceeded to freeze on the windshield even with the air on as hot as it could go at the highest setting. At 40 minutes we made the decision to turn around because it was getting worse and worse. About every 15 minutes I had to get out of the car to scrape the ice off the windshield so I could see. When we checked before the trip, the highways were clear and all seemed good, but things can change really quickly. We are now safely home. We will try and visit my aunt sometime after Paulo arrives on Tuesday.
 
I would really appreciate it if you could pray for Paulo. He is dealing with his elderly dog who isn’t well at all. He was going to take her to where she will be staying while we are in Canada today, but wasn’t able to yet because of her failing health. Please pray God gives him wisdom about what to do very soon!
 
Thank you so much! Blessings,
Lyndell

Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for your continued prayers for us! Paulo begins his journey to Canada tomorrow. We would be very grateful if you could pray for a very smooth and uneventful trip and that he would not have to have a Covid test upon entry into Canada. (He has had his 3 vaccines and his Covid test to travel was negative.) His elderly dog is in stable condition but is still undergoing treatment.
 
With better weather conditions, my sister, her husband and I were able to visit my aunt yesterday (Saturday). When she saw us, she smiled! She is no longer able to talk, eat or drink and spends most of her time sleeping. She is bedridden and unable to move the right side of her body. Her kids are taking great care of her in her final days here on earth if the Lord doesn’t cure her. Homecare nurses visit 3 times a day. It was good to be with my Uncle and cousins, too and have an opportunity to pray for them. I am so thankful to the Lord that we were able to go and so grateful for your prayers for my aunt and our extended family. Thank you so much!
 
Thanks again for all the care you have shown to me and my family. Thanks for your messages of encouragement and support during this difficult time.

Hello Everyone!
Thanks for your prayers. Paulo made it to Canada. He had to take a Covid test upon arrival in Toronto and then he was able to continue his trip until Leduc. We are currently isolating in a hotel until he gets his results back.
 
My aunt is still with us and we continue to pray for a miracle. 
 
Blessings,
Lyndell

 

From Rev. Dr. Charlemangne Nditemeh

November, 2021

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. (Romans 12:15 NIV)

Cameroon is the oldest mission partner of the North American Baptist Conference. Through the years, we have had opportunity to rejoice with them as churches were planted, church leaders were trained, hospitals were built, and lives were forever changed by the in-breaking of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Today, however, is an opportunity to mourn with those who mourn.

This past Sunday, November 28, the Executive President of the Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC), Rev. Dr. Charlemagne Nditemeh, called for a day of mourning and prayer in response to the most recent tragedy in the civil unrest in Cameroon; you can read his letter below. As his letter attests, this is not the first act of violence, but last Wednesday’s attack in Ekindo Titi, Southwest Region, hit the CBC family especially hard. A teacher and three students were killed in the attack. All three students and the teacher were members of the CBC, and one of the students was the daughter of the local CBC pastor.
