Why I’m in the Middle of the Rain Forest

by Guest Author: Reda Anderton, DOThe young mother came screaming up to my porch at 2 am. “My child! My child!” she cried. As I jerked awake, adrenalin streaming through my body. I heard a high-pitched abnormal cry from the baby mixing with the mother’s screams. Quickly throwing a robe over my night clothes, I grabbed a solar lantern and headed out to unlock the screen door, letting the hysterical mother and her convulsing baby into my screened-in porch. The baby had been okay when he fell asleep earlier, but later awakened having convulsions and a high fever. A quick…

How God Has Worked Through Our Helping

You may have read of our distress in thinking through when to give in a past blog “When Not Helping Hurts”. I wrote about a little girl in our neighborhood that was sick, our desire to help, and frustration in not knowing what to do. With much prayer and seeking counsel, we decided to help financially. And now, I thought I would give you all an update on how Madeleine is doing. I am pleased to say that she is doing incredibly well, considering her condition. First, though, I will tell you about her sickness.The Sickness Originally I just knew…

The Less Than Romantic Realities of Village Life

For various reasons throughout my life I have heard people talking about the virtues of “village life.” I generally do not say much on these subjects, as they tend to be a bit touchy, and to be honest, I did not have a lot to say. However, I realized that after living for a while in an African village, I can offer some facts regarding village life that most people would not know. My goal is not confrontation in this blog, but just information. As you are making decisions regarding your family, raising your kids, and how you counsel others,…

Minority People Groups will Rule the World

“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.” – Luke 6:20-26 We have at times been asked (and wondered ourselves) why we would choose to work with a minority people group when we could work with those who would be more likely to have a world-wide impact. The thinking is that if a Bakoum person comes to know Christ, he may be instrumental for the Kingdom among those who are in his village, but he will likely never travel nor write anything that could influence the masses. Conversely, if those who speak languages of wider communication…

There is so Little Grace Here

by Stacey  Save, O LORD, for the godly one is gone; for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man. – Psalm 12:1  Streets Filled with Violence I was studying one day when I  heard a young woman screaming in the street, “No mama, no mama.” I went outside to see what was going on and Dave told me that our neighbor was violently whipping her daughter with an electrical cable, even in the face, while her older brother was pinning her down. Dave told the mother that she needed to stop and with much frustration, she eventually relented….

21 Baka People Converted and Baptized!

“Has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?” James 2:5 World Team missionaries have been laboring among the Baka for decades and, after much prayer and teaching, the Lord has blessed them by letting them see the fruit of their labors.  When Dave and I visited Cameroon over a year ago, we had the joy of visiting with the Baka people when a man came to Christ.  Since then, the Lord has saved many many more.  As of…

From the Mouths of the National Translators

To give a little background, World Team Bible translators have gone into a group of people called the Oroko people 13 years ago and have developed an alphabet and assembled a group of local pastors help with translation. After years of translation work, here is what this group of national translators are saying… You might be thinking: “Why are they translating the Bible when these men know English?” Well, there is a reason that these men were asked to be on the translation committee–because they knew both Oroko and English and thus could have insight into the local language and…
