Mountain Adventure!

Our family was part of a 2 week homeschooling co-op in Bamenda which I plan to write about in our next blog. Now I want to take time to write a little about an amazing adventure we took with several other missionary families while in Bamenda as well as show some fun videos and pictures!

We thought the roads were bad at first but then they got worse! It was worth it to see God's beautiful creation and spend time with such wonderful people.

Only 3 out of 6 vehicles were able to make it to the top...

And ours was one of them!
Some of the incredible missionary kids that came on the trip. We only get to see other missionary families a couple of times a year so it was a real treat getting to spend time with everyone.
The crater lake, Lake Bambillie, at the top was breath taking! We then hiked to the 2nd highest point in the NW part of Cameroon. 

Some of the guys set up tents for the BBQ in case of rain as it was the rainy season.

A special shout out to Jake Schilinski for grilling up some delicious sausages! 

This pretty lady on the road asked me to snap her picture with me.

Holly had way too much fun driving! ;-D

There may not be a lot of extracurricular activities for families with children to do in Cameroon but there is an abundance of natural beauty and hiking spots!

This is a view looking out at Bamenda on our way back.

“Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds.” (Psalm 148:7-10)

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)

“Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things He has made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)
