Our first term, we will focus on intense French study and cultural acquisition while actively seeking to evangelize and disciple English speakers. We’ll be partnering with veteran missionaries Tom Needham and Sam Sanderlin as well as several key Cameroonian pastors and evangelists. Laura will be homeschooling our 4 children and helping with music and children’s ministry. There is opportunity to assist with the growing radio ministry also.
For the last few years, Cameroon has been reeling from the effects of civil war between the French and the English, between rebel forces and the government. Civilians have fled to Nigeria or into safer regions and missionaries have been displaced. There is now a growing interest and ministry taking place on the French side, as well as in Nigerian refugee camps. God’s work is still moving forward and church plants are remaining faithful. We believe our family could be a great help and encouragement to those who are faithfully moving forward with a church planting burden.
