Where I stayed
Hotel Ibis

Flag of Cameroon  ,
Friday, April 2, 2010

Today I worked all morning on a sermon, a PowerPoint presentation, and a handout to give the men here.

Mr. Mabout came to the hotel at 1:00 pm and we drove to the church hall. I had completely forgotten that it was Good Friday. Most of the shops in the business district were closed, but the farther we got from the city center, the more traffic and activity there was. In fact, we hit several traffic jams there were so many people. Mr. Mabout explained: "those who have to shift for themselves can't afford to take a day off." We arrived at the hall at 2:00 pm, and started the first seminar at 2:30. I was thankful we had electricity, so I was able to show the PowerPoint presentation up on the screen.

I gave a 90 presentation on our place in the unbroken chain of the Church since the first century and what responsibility that places on us. Then after a brief pause I gave another presentation on the importance and power of a good example. There were good questions and participation.

We finished close to 5:30. I didn’t stay long afterward, so that Mr. Mabout would be able to get back home not long after dark. He doesn’t see too well in the dark, so it’s better he not drive at night, or that he has someone with him to help him spot hazards.

I got back to the hotel around 6:30. I had a light dinner, and am ready to rest!

Hi Joel,
It was nice to learn that your first day went smoothly and that you were able to present the seminar material without a hitch. We hope that the remainder of your stay will be pleasant and productive. The responsibility of training future leaders and preparing them to help the brethren seems so important.

Regards,
Mary
