Conference, tells his story.
NORTH CAMEROON CONFERENCE PRESIDENT:Benjamin HachekedToday, years later, Benjamin Hacheked serves his church as president of the North Cameroon Conference, headquartered in the West African town of Maroua. The almost 46,000 Adventist Church members who worship in some 400 churches in that arid, rugged region look to him for spiritual leadership. He also oversees the conference’s three primary and three secondary schools. Hacheked’s uncle, though not yet a Christian, now sometimes attends worship services with his nephew, and Benjamin says he’s doing what he can to lead him to Jesus.
SCHOOL IN CAMEROON: Principal of the Adventist mission school in Dogba, northern Cameroon, prepares for class. No books or other supplies are available for use by teachers or students there.“I pray for the day when our people will be allowed to belong to any religion they want to,” Hacheked says. “That will be a happy day.”
FELLOWSHIP: Adventist women meeting together on a Friday afternoon.Villagers there live in adobe huts without the luxury of electricity or running water. They shop daily for their food because they have no refrigeration to keep it fresh. So, for Hacheked, Atlanta is a mental paradigm shift.
