Rev Dr Jared Hay Update 25/5/14

from Rev Dr Jared Hay, Interim Moderator.


Update from Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee has been going about its business quietly and diligently in the background, but we want to bring you up to date with our progress.


Following the advertising of the vacancy, we had quite a number of inquiries, some of which resulted in applications being received. However, after interview, while the applicants had many strong attributes, the NC decided not to pursue the matter further, with one applicant withdrawing.


In that this is a mutual process of exploring the suitability of applicants for LN, it has worked well, but without a positive result as yet. However, there is still an inquiry that we are not yet in a position to follow up fully, and if it does not lead us to the appropriate person we will re-advertise in due course.


One or two of the NC have indicated that they have been asked questions about their work. Please resist the temptation to ask. We will be going about our work as expected and when we have something to tell you we will tell the whole Church to keep everyone informed. Keep us all in your prayers, and continue to ask for God to touch someone with a real sense of call to serve him here.


The Chewachong family

It’s a great joy to be with you today for the Presentation of Arielle-Amora Amosons. This is a pre-baptismal ritual within the culture of the Church in Cameroon, and we are delighted to share it with Amos and Florence and the children today, presenting their little daughter before God for his blessing. Remember them all in your prayers as they adapt to having a larger family within a different culture.
