Cameroon 2014

Over many decades of faithful service, the volunteers who give their time and effort to White Cross have helped their fellow believers in Cameroon accomplish the seemingly impossible – a network of hospitals and clinics that provide essential care to over one-million patients each year.

On numerous occasions, many volunteers from this area have been privileged to witness the work in Cameroon first-hand, building relationships and deepening our understanding of the needs, opportunities and resources of everyone involved. The insights gained during these trips allow us to better align our activities to be most effective.

At the invitation of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, White Cross Canada will send two people to Cameroon in May 2014 to meet with their counterparts in Africa. Dr. Keir Hammer, the director of White Cross (Canada) and Tim Willson from Taylor College and Seminary will be joined by JJ Williams of White Cross (USA) for extensive meetings with the officials at the many hospitals and health clinics that receive support from White Cross.

As an essential member or interested supporter of this ministry, you are invited to celebrate the work of White Cross in several ways:

  • Join us for a Dessert Night on May 6, 2014 where you can hear more about this upcoming trip, share your own experience, be part of some photos and videos that will be shared with those in Cameroon.
  • Follow this trip online at www.taylor-edu.ca/wahlcentre/whitecross and at Facebook.com/TaylorUpdates (Note: the regularity of updates depends on internet access)
  • Attend another information session at the conclusion of the trip where a detailed report, including photos and videos, will be shared (details to be confirmed at a later date)
  • Request copies of a printed White Cross update to be prepared at the conclusion of this trip
  • Request a DVD about this trip and about the White Cross ministry to share with your church (expected to be available by Fall 2014).

Come and hear about this trip and share with others in the rich history of the NAB ministry in Cameroon through the Cameroon Baptist Convention and White Cross.

Dessert Night - Tuesday, May 6th

Come and hear about White Cross, and learn about this trip to Cameroon to meet with our counterparts in Africa. You will also have a chance to share stories about the role you and your church play in this vital ministry of compassion. Come and meet your fellow White Cross supporters and volunteers!
