Prayer Letter

Dear Supporters, and Praying Partners,                                                                February 2018
 
          Happy New Year!  The Lord really blessed during the Christmas and New Year Season.  We saw many new families attend, and even had some receive Christ during our Christmas service.  In January we had 3 men request to be baptized.  They had received Christ earlier in church, and wanted to follow in obedience.  So on January 21, we held a baptism service at our house after the main service at church.  We baptized Steven, Thomas, and Celestine.  Please pray for these men as they are trying to lead their families to trust Christ, but their wives are very involved in the Catholic and Presbyterian churches.  
     We left Cameroon for our first furlough on January 24th.  We are taking a 6 month furlough, and planning to return to Cameroon in late July.  We have already been very busy reporting to many supporting churches, as well as presenting the work in some new churches.  In the first month of being back we have already been in 11 churches.  God has really blessed our traveling, and kept us safe.  Please pray for continued health and safety as we travel.  We are currently raising money for our building, praying that we could purchase the land upon our return.
 
          The political unrest in Cameroon has not changed.  There is fighting going on in both English regions, and no resolutions are happening on either side.  Please continue to pray for peace to return to Cameroon.  Aloysuis is leading the ministry in our absence, and has continued to have about 20 people regularly.  There have recently been some visitors come, and they are desiring to make this their church home.  Please pray for protection and growth in the church while we are away.  We greatly anticipate returning to Buea, to continue the work God is doing there.  We want to thank all those who sent extra Christmas offerings in December and January.  Those offering have been a huge blessing to our family.  We have new phone numbers. Caleb-903-738-9230  Sarah-520-369-1443

Thank You for your prayers and financial support,

The Benson Family
