by: Yuri Nakano

Driving, packing and re-packing, getting on and off planes, sleeping in multiple locations, and doing presentations of various lengths and to different groups has been my life.

The Road to Kumba

by: Walter & Florence Grob

In the rain forest town of Kumba, the Cameroon Baptist Seminary operates to prepare a little over 100 students for ministry in God’s Church.  (There is also a larger, older seminary in Ndu, in the grasslands.) In late September a board of governor’s meeting was scheduled at the Kumba seminary, where I needed to present a report on the rather pitiful financial position of this school.

Crossing Cultures

by: Bud Fuchs

What key factors need to be considered when choosing where to go or to send our m’s? There are three factors to consider for missions: The first factor is a place where the vast majority of people have yet to hear the true Gospel. Secondly, where the ch*rch is in need of mentoring leaders. Thirdly, where there is a specific need to reach the sick, the orphaned, the abused or the foreigner.

We continue to work on recruiting more young people to join us in the work at Mbingo.  We are encouraged that a young pediatrician and her family are raising support through one of our sister missions to come work long-term at Mbingo.  We attended the Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville, KY, and were able to make a number of good contacts for volunteers to come help with the teaching and clinical care.
