After our last out door Crusade at the Bonduma Village hall from Oct. 30– Nov. 2, 2008 where we registered at least 125decision cards, we saw so many of them coming to church. As part of the follow up strategies, we organized a thanksgiving fellowship meal on Sunday November 22 at 3pm where we had closed to 60participants from the village being present. At the end of the occasion, 3persons recommitted themselves to Jesus.
After having taken the discipleship lessons for more than a month now, these candidates took the lesson on Baptism and they understood what it meant to be buried with Christ in baptism and they willingly demonstrated the need to publicly confess that they are now children of God. It was a wonderful Sunday morning at the site of baptism where so many inhabitants came to wash their clothes and others to fetch water for drinking and cooking. After a short evangelistic word, one young man openly indicated his need to receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior. View photos of the what took place on that day via this link.
On Sunday September 28, 2008 4 disciples of Jesus were baptized.
It was a wonderful time as we had to hire a taxi all tthe way to the Bokova watters that are much deeper than thte Ndongo waters where we have done Baptism in the past.
We are planning to build the Ndongo stream in a way that will ease collection of water for home useand also be used for things like baptism.
It is worth noting that the Ndongo stream is so importtant to the people of Buea because when piped water is gone (and tthat happens very oftten) everyone depends on Ndongo.
Shortly after the graduation of students from the first edition of the School of discipleship on August 29th, about 30students were registered for the second edition of the School which ran throughout the month of September.
At the end of the school, 12 new believers and some members from other churches went through the discipleship curriculum that was designed by the Buea Community Church.
It is worth noting that most of those who successfully go through the school catch some fire for multiplying and invest themselves in others.
On Sunday August 24, 2008, BCC baptized 5 adults and broke bread that same Sunday. The presence and Joy of the Lord was so incredible during that service.

Soon after the Church launch on August 17, 2008 we started a School Of Discipleship at the Church that is turning out to be a real opportunity for change and divine contact with Gd for many.
Since the beginning of the first class taught by Julius Esunge of the USA, the classes have been growing in strength the Lord’s anointing and numbers daily.
