Global Prayer Partnership Network Restores Meme Community 

By Marceline Chick — The population of Meme Division and beyond has been spiritually restored in a Global Prayer partnership conference. The international church growth conference that started from August 6 to 11 in Kumba brought together churches within Cameroon, USA and Germany.

Prior to the official opening, the Christians, in a crusade caravan, organised a march around the streets of Kumba chanting songs of praise to God. Speaking during the opening ceremony, the organiser, Rev. Aaron Ayuk Okang of Full Gospel Mission, Fiango, Kumba, said the international programme is the brain child of a prayer partnership vision he conceived since 2006.

He intimated that the conference aimed at restoring hope to the hopeless as church ministers and Christians would devise new ways of handling their assemblies to ensure optimum growth. In his paper on “The Challenge for Church Growth,” Rev. Okang announced that Cameroon is about to experience revival and all must sit up in the midst of challenges.

He stated that Christians need to carry out evangelism to win the lost to Christ, expressing hopes that at the end of the conference, the church would grow by 500 new persons. The Superintendent of the Full Gospel Mission, Rev. Daniel Mbiwan, analysed on the conference’s theme, “Restoring Communities to Lives.” According to Mbiwan, there are different realms of occult and satanic practices in Cameroon.

He said Christians must rise up in prayers and overcome spiritual challenges, urban challenges, social challenges and health challenges, by preaching the word of God daily. Rev. Julius Esunge from USA talked on “Principles of Church Growth.” He said Christians must take inventory of their activities, get a vision, set goals, priorities and develop the gift of administration.

Other speakers in the conference included Rev. Maurice Ndasi from USA, the Southwest Area Supervisor of FGM, Rev. Solomon Kemama, Rev. Williams Manga, Rev. Mbu Arrey and Rev. Sylvester Mua. The six-day conference was characterised by choral music, workshops, evangelistic outreach, counselling and prayers.
