“We remain ever thankful to our Benefactors of Aid to the Church in Need for the wonderful support they have been giving us to train our Major Seminarians for the past years since the socio-political crisis that has almost escalated into a war, broke in the Southern Cameroon, comprising the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda. Formation of our future priests especially in Kumba would have been impossible without your financial assistance. As a token of our profound gratitude, rest assured of our daily prayers for God’s blessings upon our Benefactors”.

“My deepest heartfelt gratitude to you for the donation of this motorbike. It really came to me and the Parish at a time that we really needed it for our pastoral work. Indeed, it was and remains a prayer answered. With this motorbike, I have been able to reach out to most of the small Christian communities and visit a number of our Christians. It has really been an experience of life giving and faith sharing. It always is a great joy to be able to bring the sacraments and the Word of God to people especially those in the remotest areas of our Parish. As a parish, we are now able to reach out to more people who felt abandoned because of the priest’ s failure to reach them especially the lame, old people and children especially since the time we started utilizing the bike, many people are very happy to be visited. This bike has really been a source of great help as regards to transport. I thank you so much for your love, care and support for our pastoral ministry by providing this motorbike. Through us, and through this donation, you are able to minister to our people the love of God. My prayers shall always go out to God for you for his continued Love, care and protection.”
