Lord have mercy

Things are not easy in my part of the country. High controversy about the re-opening of schools. While some people say schools should re-open, others say they should not. They are protesting against the government and asking for independence for the English-speaking part of the country.

Cameroon is a bi-cultural, bilingual country with the French speaking part in the majority. Over the years this majority has dominated and suppressed the English-speaking minority. The most lucrative positions in the administration have gone only to persons from the French speaking side. Speakers of the Queen’s language feel treated like underlings. Having borne this over the years, they thought the time had come for them to get themselves free.

The fight for freedom has been going on for almost one year with the boycott of school as a major weapon.

Now there is division. Some say the children should be left out of the whole matter. Others say over their dead bodies. Thus schools are re-opening under great tension. In some places there is calm but in others there is outright violence.

How all this proceeds, no one can say. How it ends it’s even harder to tell. Everyone counts only on the mercy of God.

When A Picture’s Worth A Thousand

Our allegiance we pledge, faithfully….



Speaking patriotically, I listen to the views as opinions are too numerous to mention. A true believer, we are all under God and I seek the best for all the country. The military, the meek, the wealthy that knows yet seeks to destroy. Even nature wants to preserve. We spend our lives trying to endure and do what’s right for the welfare of our descendants. Praying to pass on the promises instilled in us as children, we strive in our commitment to God to make a difference.

What matters more than heritage? We stand like statues to the wind, like the Wye Oak, as seasons change a landmark to our community. But one thing for sure, we hold our flag dear to our hearts. Our allegiance we pledge, faithfully.

But I wonder….will our children ever comprehend the complacency we constructed for them? They will never see a draft where destiny is decided by the luck of a straw. We were plunged from high school to a battlefield, fighting for our lives. Forget the enemy! Staying alive was priority. Kids can’t relate unless of course they enlisted in a branch.

I call on the weak to rise and be counted. God needs us! We are the chosen to serve and protect what’s left. Watching the world poised for action, we need to diligently say grace.

Caring about our tomorrows, God grant us salvation; our peace and joy we proclaim for the children’s sake that know not….. Amen.

Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. (Psalm 144: 1-2)

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:8)

Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him. (2 Timothy 2: 3-4)

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127: 3-5)



Brilliant children

Some children are very brilliant. They learn fast; understand fast and remember fast. I have been asking myself what accounts for this. Is it hereditary or acquired?

What intrigues me is I find brilliant children at times coming from very poor families. In the same way, some wealthy people have very dull children.

I am sure there are many like me who are intrigued by this. Do you have an idea of how we can explain this? What, in your opinion, are some of the factors that account for the great brilliance and great dullness of some children?

Are there measures that couples can take to ensure that the children they give birth to are brilliant not dull?
