Settling in Cameroon (part 6) Repairs

Everything is repairable in Cameroon. From phones to umbrellas and even shoes . My cellphone i bought while in Denmark recently had a battery problem and i was told it was practically impossible to get the battery here in Cameroon because it is a rare phone. For those of you who know phones, it is a smartphone, an LG 990.

I was almost about to throw it away when i ran into a repairer at the kumba main market who told me be could make a new battery for me to use in the phone. He actually used the words “form the battery”. This means taking a battery that does not belongs to the phone and adapting it to fit into the phone and power it. Looking at him in bewildment, i offered him the phone wondering how this could be possible.

Three days later, he called me that my phone was ready and he powered it infront of me and it was working. I have been using the phone now for more than 3 weeks and it is working perfectly. So, friends, when you are out here in Cameroon, remember not to throw away any defective electronic device because it can be repaired. Even the hole in your underwear instead of you throwing it and buying a new one like abroad.

Fruits of the spirit.


The fruits of the spirit are most especially depicted in 1 Corinthians
8 – 11. There are nine fruits of the spirit which include wisdom,
knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, speaking God’s message,
discernment, speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues.

What many Christians do not know is that most of us have at least one
of the above gifts working in us. Nonetheless, some persons are more
endowed than others in some of the gifts. The bible says we have
different abilities to perform the gifts but it is the same God who
gives these abilities (1 Corinthians 12:6). How can you know where you
are gifted and why is it that some persons are more gifted than others
in some of the gifts ? Just like you need to start painting in order
to know whether you can paint or not , that is how you need to
exercise the gift to know whether you have it or not. Until you try it
out, there is no way you would know.

I for my part never knew i had the gift of healing until i was
confronted by a girl who had an injury on her leg. She told me the
wound would not go away and i told her there is somebody called Jesus
who can drive away even the most resistant pain. I, then, proceeded to
pray for her and after some few days, she came to testify that she was
completely healed. Not only this, but i have stood in faith in many
more issues in my own life and i have seen as God did miracles for me.

You, too, can experience this gifts and many more of the other gifts
of the spirit if only you try them out. As the saying goes, “i cannot
do it” has never accomplished anything; “i will try” has accomplished
wonders. I wish you all a nice and wonderful day.

High rise buildings in kumba, Buea, Bamenda and Limbe

There is a strange phenomenon now gripping the major cities of the south west and north west provinces. It is the phenomenon of high rise buildings commonly called sky scrappers in the west. It seems there is a hidden competition among developers to see who among them would go highest into the skyline.

It is not uncommon to find nowadays buildings rising to 8 and 10 storeys being built or completed in kumba, Limbe, Buea and Bamenda. One thing i have noted among developers is their confidence that because of the shortage of housing units in Cameroon, their buildings would be taken as soon as possible.

These high rise buildings are gradually transforming these cities making them not different from the economic and political capitals of Douala and Yaounde.I hope this trend continues. I wish you all a happy day.
