I write to you from cool, lush, green Yaounde in Cameroon. I’m here to oversee the culmination of an eight-year project – the production of a New Testament in the language of Chad’s Kenga people.
I’ve not stopped praising the Lord since my arrival here in Cameroon. Despite dense traffic and ants on every surface, including my body, the temperatures here are perfect. Especially after the heat and dust of Chad’s dry season. The food is abundant and varied. We enjoy hot showers and the use of washing machines.

I write this a short while before the world’s 196th nation, the Republic of South Sudan, is to be born. Everywhere we look there are preparations for this coming birth: Multi-storey buildings spring up, visitors flood into the country, signs and banners all around proclaim the new nation. Work crews go hard at it through the night to get projects finished.
