This July, we will be leading a team on our 3rd trip working at Baptist Comprehensive High School, Njinikejem, or BCHS, a vocational/secondary school near Bamenda, Cameroon. The school is one of 12 boarding high schools in the Baptist education department. We were so pleased to learn that the enrollment of BCHS has doubled to over 500 students during these 2 years. We praise God for these accomplishments.
TEN3 trainers from the U.S. will be working at BCHS at the same time we will. The TEN3 trainers will be training the Baptist high school principals, vice-principals, and computer teachers in their Bible based curriculum. The CVAI team will do some work in the computer lab, but primarily we will work to train teachers in the use of some donated power tools from the container and rejuvenate the struggling woodworking and carpentry lab, drafting lab, and school library. As in the previous two years, we continue to collaborate to make a difference in the lives of the students and staff of this school for the Glory of God.
Our supporters who know of our goal of building our first “flagship” Christian Comprehensive Vocational Academy may wonder why we are involved at BCHS. The Lord has not currently provided the funds to build a new school. Providing training and equipment to BCHS, fulfills CVAI’s mission and vision and blesses an existing school that is receptive to innovative teaching and is glorifying God.
Thank you for standing along side of us, and CVAI as we continue to work towards training and equipping our brothers and sisters in Cameroon who desire to provide the best Christ-centered vocational training possible.
