Cameroon Appeal 2019

MNO Synod has a long-standing relationship with the Eglise Evangelique Lutherienne du Cameroun (EELC) – the Evangelical Lutheran Church Of Cameroon.

  We support “Kids in Cameroon” – a program to help orphaned and underprivileged children receive an
   education,
and some basic food.

  We encourage women in ministry in the Lutheran church.

  Along the way, we have given support to catechists and theological students receiving training
   to lead in the church.

We invite your participation in our appeal to raise $50,000 in 2019 for our work with our Global Companion Synod, Cameroon! (Here is a video from Bishop Jason upon his return from travels to Cameroon in March, 2019!)

Our MNO Global Companion committee is working on a Cameroon Celebration, to be on October 25 at Lutheran Church of the Cross. Come for a fun evening of Cameroonian culture! Click here for more information.

With the video-resources, you may choose to use them in your congregation for further learning. Here are some subject headings, and discussion questions, that may help guide your conversation:

1) Kids in Cameroon
What needs are met in a program like this?
How does a program like this reflect our Christian values?

2) Women in Ministry
How is Cameroon’s culture similar, and different, to Canada’s?
What specific gifts do women bring to ordained ministry?

3) Femmes Pour Christ
What benefits to everyone are there when women are empowered?
What progress has been made in Cameroon over the decades?
