The most vital thing you can do to come alongside us in pray and encouragement. This is not our work but is the work of God that we are doing. We need His power, provision and direction in our work. Please pray. If you would like to partner with us in prayer please sign up to receive our newsletter, via the post office or in your email box from Chimp Mail. This will keep you informed as to the many areas we need prayer.
As many of you who have visited our work in Cameroon or who are familiar with it already know, your dollar is stretched to the max at BFL. A typical ministry doing exactly what we do will require more than 20 times our present funding level. As with all we have endeavored to do for the kingdom, our direction and emphasis are geared towards stability and longevity. Building from the ground up, laying in foundational truths that will stand every wind of doctrine and flourish in a rapidly changing continent.

For more than a decade, the ministry of BFL has mostly been supported through “special gifts” and “speaking honorariums.” A good support base would allow our indigenous team to focus all our energy on ministry and relationships, to expand the depth of existing ministries and to start new ministry projects and areas.
In the last two decade of our involvement in church-planting, it has become evident that we need to also focus on structures or “church buildings.” Yes, this is costly. Some will argue why such investment. Why invest in a building? Below are a few reasons from a “third world” and cultural perspective:
• Basic protection from the elements
• An “established” presence in the community
• A central sending-out point for evangelism
• Host community events
• Impacts ministry potential
• Enhanced witness to unbelievers
• Cultural relevance and credibility
A typical church building in a village will cost between $15,000 and $20,000. For a little more investment the same can be done in the city where the cost and standard of living is higher.
Our focus in the coming years will be in assisting a number of BFL related church plants in having an “established” presence in their communities.
We are always looking for folks or businesses to help us underwrite the costs which usually cover logistics, meals and materials.
Clean water is vital for security and development. In Cameroon, cost of $6,000 to $16,000 are currently being charged for the drilling of a single well.
Bread for life has embarked upon a mission to purchase well drilling equipment. In addition to drilling wells for irrigation on our farms and ministry bases, wells will also be drilled in communities and for individuals across our region for a fraction of the current cost.
This opportunity to bless many in a lasting and tangible way will also create ministry opportunities, produce income for Bread For Life, provide funds for the maintenance of the equipment, and offers some valuable vocational training. The well digging equipment suitable for our area is $100,000 per unit.

Samaritan’s Enterprise – Micro-Enterprise Assistance Program (SEMAP) was designed to provide individuals and groups with an opportunity to receive assistance and acquire the skills necessary to operate, manage and grow their own small scale business. Micro loans to believers have resulted in several successful Christian enterprises. Repayments of loans are used to help other businesses get started. Loan projects strengthen the church by making its members more able to support themselves and others.
