The last weeks in Cameroon were filled with sorting, packing and preparing to transition back to the United States. We enjoyed special moments with friends. Our days and lives in Cameroon have been full of sweet friendships and are full of God’s love. We certainly are different people as we leave than we were when we arrived; we have grown in our love for God, and others.
Special Bible Dedication – Matthew had the opportunity over the past years to work with a project that has helped so many. Translating the bible from Latin script to a modified version of Arabic, has been a blessing, as the native speaking people can pick up a reader and go right into reading the Bible, understanding each and every word.
We saw joy as people received and read the scriptures for the first time. Teresa had just a joy in teaching the children for these past years. Friendships were formed, they grew academically, and hungered for more knowledge. While here in the US, the children and their creativity, hugs, high-fives, and laughter, will certainly be missed.
Working with other teachers and staff, over the past three years, I am grateful for the advice, conversations, laughter and times of prayer that I had with these ladies. I will miss them greatly! I am glad technology will allow us to continue to pray for the students and teachers. ~ Teresa
As I prepared to leave for Home Assignment, I had to release some of my extra responsibilities the last couple months. I am excited to see how things will progress under the direction of these various new leaders. ~ Matthew
Arriving back in Virginia, we will be here until the beginning of January! During our time here Teresa would love to visit and observe kindergarten classrooms, as well as share opportunities with teachers about teaching overseas. If you have any connections with classrooms of Kindergarten or university levels where Teresa could share her talents and observe, please let us know.
We’d love to hear from you! You can contact us by phone or email.
