PCC Moderator Raises Christians’ Hope On Anglophone Crises 

By Joshua Boanong


The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon,PCC, Rt. Rev. Samuel Fonki Forba on Sunday, October 22,challenged Christians of the PCC to remain hopeful and look up to God in the face of the protracted Anglophone Crises.

He echoed these words at a twin event of a fundraising and laying of the foundation stone for the newly constructed PC Bonakanda building.

In his exaltation, drawn from the book of Matthew 9:1-8 titled: “Be optimistic and hopeful about the future,” the man of God underscored the need for Christians to be positive amidst the ongoing socio-political crises in the Northwest and Southwest Regions for a year now,calling on all to look at the bright light that shines ahead.

“We have come through storms in our lives and in our nation, in our economy and in our politics and many of us are still pessimistic; all we see is trouble and pain. Our hopes have been shattered, but regardless of the storm and strong winds that have plagued us, Christ is with us, he is beside us.

There is nothing to be afraid of; there is nothing to be worried about. There is nothing that God cannot do for us. We must believe in him that everything will turn out well for the future. This is a storm of uncertainty that can lead to anyone’s life, but when Christ is with you, you need not worry,” the Moderator maintained.

About the foundation stone, Rt. Rev. Fonki, the Chief Celebrant of the event,said: “The foundation stone is an indication that the people recognise the presence of God in that particular spot where the church has been constructed.” He hadjust downed the items into the foundation stone, including The Holy Bible and a copy of The Post Newspaper.

The PC Bonakanda congregation, with the support of people of goodwill, raised a sum of FCFA 1,044,000 to see the completion of the modern structure.

The Project Coordinator, Matute Menyoli, joined voices with Chief Emmanuel Ndongo, Chief of Bonakanda, to express gratitude to all who chipped in contributions to realise the project.

“It has been wonderful; we thank God for everything…It has been a very huge success, we also sincerely thank the congregation for what we have been able to realise, together, especially with the collaboration of our wonderful friends from far and near,” said Matute who, together with his wife, everyone exalted for contributing immensely to the project.

The Chief of Bonakanda said he is honoured to host the Moderator in his village, adding that it is not easy to see the Moderator in a rural setting congregation like Bonakanda.
