Lack of study materials
January 2015
The culturally complex nation of Cameroon has seen a remarkable growth of evangelicals over the past 30 years, after a long history of nominal Christianity. There is much to hope for. But resources are scarce. A Cameroonian Bible scholar explains, “Our primary trade language is French. That is what most people can read. But although we have a French Bible, there are very few study materials for those who wish to go deeper in their faith”. Please pray for skilled French speaking evangelicals to take on the task of composing study helps for pastors, professors, teachers, and all who desire to know Him more through His Word. (YWAM)
