For the month of October, please pray for Vincent and Mary Taniform, serving with the
Navigators of Cameroon. Pray especially for their evangelism & discipleship work among “unreached people groups”—that they continue making inroads with the Gospel of Christ! And, pray for strength in spite of the political unrest!
Message from Vincent: Just wanted to take a moment and remind you to continue praying for Vincent & Mary Taniform, whom we support financially through the Navigators of Cameroon!
Things have been heating up again, politically, in the northwest region of Cameroon, where the Taniforms live. It is becoming a potentially dangerous situation for them! Here, again, is the correspondence we've received from them as it was read last Sunday during our worship service:
"We remain indoors and go out on weekends to buy food. But this coming week will not be easy. However we will remain indoors. Troops have been sent into the region. Yesterday it wasn't easy in Bambui our neighborhood, as they were just picking up young men and asking for money. We don't know what they have come to do."
Thank you for praying for Vincent and Mary! We will share more information as it becomes available!

Steve and Linda Walters
Steve is involved in three different areas of ministry:
He is involved in ministering to men where he lives. This is primarily through one-to-one meetings with a variety of men, as well as being involved in a men’s Bible study.
He is also the Director of Africa Partners, a ministry of the Navigators. In this role, Steve is the primary connection between those in the US with Navigator ministries in Africa. For example: He is currently involved with linking a medical school in the US with the Navigator ministry in the medical community of Zambia. The intent is to use the experience of short-term missions to Zambia as a means of discipling medical students from the US. The hope is that this will create a pipeline of long-term medical missionaries to Africa.
He also serves on the African Regional Council. The is the leadership structure that oversees Navigator ministries in 28 countries of Sub-Sahara Africa. Each ministry is unique, at different stages of development, and with different needs.
