A HISTORY OF MY MISSIONARY AND
I started my missionary work in Cameroon in
1993, by March 1995, after fasting and praying, I was led by the Lord to start an
evangelistic ministry and a Church in Douala.
This ministry called Jonah Soul Winning
Ministries led to the starting of a Radio ministry in the same year 1995. I had a
preaching and teaching program every Sunday by 6.30 p.m. at the Cameroon Radio and
Television Station (CRTV) in Douala.
This program was aired to the population of
Littoral and South West provinces of Cameroon with an estimated audience of 3.2 millions
people. Many people gave their lives to Christ and are happily worshipping God in living
churches in these regions. This program lasted for 3 years (1995-1998) and stopped because
of lack of funding.
We still believe that this radio program
will continue in the future if we have funds. Cameroonians need the gospel because only
about 3% of the population has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
From 1996, I was invited by some churches
for gospel crusades which we did in some major cities like Douala, Yaounde, Limbe, Buea,
Kumba, Garoua, Ngaoundéré. In these crusades, the Lord did miracles and hundreds of people
As I continued to minister in the land, I
saw that the majority of the population don’t come to the crusade grounds or churches to
hear the word of God and there is no way they can be saved if they do not hear the gospel (cf
Romans 10: 14)
I entered into prayers to ask the Lord what
to do. The Lord gave me a vision and commission to reach the people where they are – in the
streets, parks, market places, shops and homes with the gospel.
Because of this vision, in the year 2000, I
bought an old vehicle, equipped it with horn speakers and a sound system. I trained an
evangelistic group and we started going out to preach in the streets, market places, parks,
shops and homes in Douala and its neighborhood. People began to give their lives to Christ
because of this approach.
Our main goal is to enlarge our
evangelistic activities in the land of Cameroon and Africa from 2004.
