(Cameroon)–We turn next to Cameroon, a sanctuary of peace in the midst of an African continent torn by bloodshed, civil war and a terrible AIDS epidemic. While neighboring countries top news involves coup attempts, rioting and disease, the headlines in Cameroon are about soccer. Global Advance’s David Shibley. “Cameroon is indeed an oasis in the midst of trouble, and it’s a refreshing place. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of conflict in the country, and it’s a conducive climate for the Gospel right now-churches are taking advantage of that.” Shibley says the church in Cameroon has matured so much, they’ve developed an indigenous missions movement to evangelize the unreached not only within the country’s borders but also all the way to Northern Africa. “The churches have an unusual high level of cooperation one with the other. I believe the Lord is smiling on that and that is why there’s a tremendous move of God’s spirit right now, wonderful church growth is happening; very vigorous church planting.”
