In November 2013, I took my first short term missions trip to Cameroon Africa. What a great experience it was. Our team’s objectives were to build the roof for a small church in the village of Mdintzi and minister to the women and children of the village. But I came to understand that God had much more for me to learn on this trip to Cameroon. What I found out during this journey was a rich history of the commitment by the North American Baptist Conference (NAB) to the people of Cameroon that began in the early 1890’s. Yes…that’s right, the early 1890’s. But let me first tell you a little bit about what was accomplished through our team before writing about the NAB’s rich history in Cameroon.

As I walked amongst the 3000+ attendees on our campus during the Harvest Festival, I was struck by our unique community. We live in a highly diverse area - ethnically, culturally and linguistically.
