Jean-Claude Ethe

CAMEROON

Jean-Claude Ethe : CAMEROON


The Laurel Church of Christ has supported mission work in Cameroon since 1999. The goal is to bring the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ to the people in this part of the world. The work has been blessed! The leadership and members of Laurel, working in conjunction with the Buckingham Road Church of Christ in Garland, Texas, have been able to continue the effort and support of the gospel. Yearly campaigns led by Bro. Jim Corner of Buckingham Road have sown and helped develop over 250 congregations in the English- and French-speaking areas of Cameroon. Faithful brothers in Cameroon, Jean-Claude Ethe, Vincent Nsah and Louis Bassay, have worked tirelessly to cultivate and nurture many of these new congregations. Between 2001 and 2013, Laurel has sent ten members on campaigns to Cameroon, with a goal of sending at least two members every other year. After going on a campaign in 2012, Paul Wharton started expanding Laurel’s involvement with an additional seven local preachers in outlying areas of Cameroon. We are committed to help the congregations in Cameroon move to the next level, a level that will: create better communication links between the brothers in Cameroon and the brothers in the USA; provide greater accessibility to Bibles and study material to help strengthen the churches and families in Cameroon; and provide clean, fresh water to support health, sanitation and agri-economics in the villages. Our prayer is that we will continue to plant the “Seeds of the Kingdom” and that our God, who is always faithful, will continue to bless us with a harvest! We pray that you will help promote and support Cameroon Connection – Project 2015 and our brothers in Cameroon. To God be the glory!
