Cameroon, Pathology, and Hope for the Future
In the midst of nearly a million people being displaced and many being killed due to the civil unrest and violence in Cameroon, God continues to use our NAB missionaries to minister alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Cameroon Baptist Convention. Along with many other areas of ministry, the hospital in Mbingo continues to be a source of light in the midst of the darkness and peace in the midst of the chaos of violence and suffering in Cameroon.
One piece of the ongoing ministry at Mbingo is the pathology program that processes thousands of specimens annually. Dr. Mbanga Evans is currently being trained in a Pathology residency program at the University of Nairobi. After finishing the residency, he is to join Dr. Richard Bardin in providing Pathology service at Mbingo Baptist Hospital. He will be the first qualified Cameroonian pathologist to serve at any Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) health facility. We pray that he will be the first of many to be trained in Pathology. The CBC Health Board staffs 6 hospitals in Cameroon, so the need for qualified pathologists is unlimited.
Providing financial assistance for Dr. Mbanga’s training has been an ongoing special project for the NAB. Last year, however, we let you know about a matching gift opportunity due to a generous offer from a donor, and with your generosity we were able to meet last year’s educational costs for Dr. Mbanga.
We are delighted to announce that we have been given this same generous matching opportunity by the same donor again this year! God is so faithful. It is our hope that we will be able to provide the funding to complete Dr. Mbanga’s training this year. Every gift that you give during the month of June will be matched up to $10,000. Therefore, we thank you in advance for your continued support of this ministry.
Again, thank you for partnering with NAB Missions and the Cameroon Baptist Convention expanding the Kingdom of God through medical missions. Sustainability of medical missions in Cameroon depends on having well-trained Cameroonian doctors in every specialty, and Dr. Mbanga’s training will provide hope for the future of pathology services in Cameroon. This in turn provides hope for medical missions in Cameroon and hope for many in the midst of difficult and trying circumstances.
