Greetings from Cameroon!

After nine months of French classes in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, and an all-too-brief vacation, our family has finally been deployed to Cameroon. We are currently in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon.


On Saturday (August 11), Joe will depart for the village of Baboua in the Central African Republic (CAR) to review the current status of the water project that has been begun in that area by the Lutheran Church. I will return in a month and then we will all move to Garoua Boulaï, Cameroon. We will live there and Joe will travel to the CAR to work when conditions are good..


This year, Christa is in the fifth grade. Since there is no English Language school were we will be living her parents will be home schooling her. However, the ELCA Global Missions are still looking for a teacher for Christa, so if you know anyone who has an elementary teaching certificate and wants to live in Africa for a couple of years, tell them they can apply on-line at


Please keep us in your prayers. Specific prayer requests include


Finding a good teacher for Christa

Our continued health and safety

And the safety of all who live in the CAR, where they have had to deal with so much insecurity




Blessings to all of you,
