Blogging again - sort of - from Cameroon

No pictures yet. My plan is to use my cell phone for taking them, so first I need to get my phone unlocked so that it can use a local SIM card. In order to unlock it, I first need to have the SIM card. But the woman who sells the SIM cards is on vacation until Monday. The man who explained all of this to me smiled apologetically and said, "It's too bad that you arrived this very week." It all felt very familiar and made me feel more at home than anything else since I arrived.

Neither do we have regular Internet access. I can get decent access about a half a mile away, at the mission's training center, but this is rainy season, so carrying my computer there and back is a little dicey. (When Paul told me that the brakes on the vehicle that has been loaned to us are unreliable, I decided that I'll stay on foot for awhile.) We are working on various possibilities for that: everyone seems to have a solution to offer, none of which have panned out for us. In the meantime, I won't be posting much. But also in the meantime, I'm thinking that it's about time to give this puppy a name. Any ideas?


  1. I love to read your stuff when you're in Cameroon, Nanci...takes me back to our "old home"...when we were neighbors, co-workers, prayer partners, and (still are) friends...
    Be safe and happy through out the coming days there...In blessing and sunshine,Deb (haken)
