French Phrase of the Day: bon anniversaire; this is, of course, “Happy Birthday” in French. Why would I choose this as the phrase of the day? Hmmmm …
Face of the Day: Leah Magruder, Area Financial Executive/Christian Education Director, UMC Mission, Cameroon: The truth? This woman runs the Mission. She does a little bit of everything (except preach)! She keeps me on track, that’s for sure. And of course, I love her very much. This happens to be her birthday!
Cameroon Fact of the Day: Cameroon has two birthdays, sort of. French Cameroun gained her independence on January 1, 1960; British Cameroon joined the republic on October 1, 1961.
Mission Challenge of the Day: Today, you are invited to brighten a missionary’s day. As mentioned above, this is Leah’s birthday! It would be great for you to wish her a “Happy” one. Just leave a comment below or send something to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Christ came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near" Ephesians 2:17
C"est La Famille Magruder
The Magruders are United Methodist missionaries to Cameroon, via London, Long Beach and a small town in east Texas called Valley View. We love John Wesley, Walton re-reruns, professional sports teams from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, U2, Jim Wallis, and Bob Dylan. Our mission in Cameroon is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by planting new congregations of the United Methodist Church.
