The Harvest Is Plenty

“We took three days to arrive at this conference coming from North Cameroon. Please will you come to the North to do this training! Our people need it.” “We took a 3 hour boat ride from Nigeria to get to your conference. Please come to Nigeria, you will have your own armed guards to insure…

It's Time

With only one week until Zoe and I were to leave for Cameroon the odds were stacked against us. I technically still did not have the funds to go and my VISA was STILL at the Cameroon Embassy in Washington D.C. When I got the message that my VISA still had not been approved my…

Does He Love Me?
