Update on Cameroon
Since the announcement of the election results in Cameroon on October 22, violence has once again escalated in the Anglophone (English-speaking) regions of Cameroon. While our NAB missionaries remain in relative safety, the crisis is escalating with an estimated 300,000 individuals displaced and many deaths. This past week, Calvin Hohn, NAB field director in Cameroon, informed us of the death of an American missionary who recently arrived on the field; he was caught in the crossfire of heavy gunfire in Bambili. Please pray for his widow and his eight children. For more information about the conflict please consider reading the following two articles sent to us by Calvin:
May the God of peace use His church in Cameroon to provide a peace in Cameroon that surpasses all understanding.
Due to the unrest and conflict that continues to spread and intensify, NAB missionaries in Cameroon, together with the Cameroon Baptist Convention, have the opportunity to tangibly meet needs of victims of the conflict. Some of our medical missionaries tend to the wounded on a daily basis. Additionally, the NAB has created the Cameroon Crisis Relief Fund in support of the CBC’s efforts to raise funds to assist in alleviating some of the suffering. Funds will be used to assist payment of medical bills of the wounded, education for displaced children, and food for prisoners.
The goal is to raise a minimum of $100,000. Please consider what you can give to assist those who are suffering in Cameroon.
