News From Cameroon!!!

  picture is from

     Today I received news from the director of the Wotutu (Cameroon, Africa) Center for Biblical Studies concerning the farm that we helped establish there back in March.  Things there are going very well.  We have only had one major problem and that is concerning the rabbits.  We have weather problems there (too cold at night) that killed our rabbits :(.  We are currently working to develop an earthen rabbit cage that should provide some climate control for the rabbit (see pic to the right). I believe a setup similar to this will truly help remedy some of the hot/cold/rain issues by providing the rabbits a place of natural security.

Large Breeding Snails!!!

 The picture to the left is of the snail farm we built while in Wotutu.  It is doing very well as you can see from the abundance of snails everywhere in the pen.  They truly love to eat snail in Cameroon and during the dry season the snails bring top dollar.  I am so proud of Elangwe and the students for being so diligent in caring for these animals.  These large snails are also the breeding stock for the rest of the snail farm. These snails should be able to provide a large amount of food for the school.  Below is a picture of the eggs from the snails.  We built a separate pen for the eggs and baby snails because the large snails will eat them if we dont separate them.

Baby Ducks

 They are also raising ducks for eggs and meet.  To the left you can see the picture of the first set of babies they have hatched.  They are doing great and the mother duck is setting on another nest of eggs!!!

Below is a pic of the goats that they have acquired.  You can see the baby girl she recently gave birth to.  They are both strong and healthy!!!
