CAMEROON: DAVID BJORK requests prayer for new students at the seminary who will go through orientation September 29-30. Pray they will be committed to learning. Pray also for David and the other faculty members who will be accompanying the new students in their first steps in the academic environment. Pray also as during a recent trip, David was able to begin dialogue with the deans of two other African institutions of higher education who are open to examining how the seminary where David works might begin a partnership. There would be many benefits for the students at the seminary where David works if these partnerships were established. Pray for wisdom and grace as this possibility is explored.
