Mission Minute: Nkemba & Mbwizu Ndjungu

Rev. Nkemba and Mbwizu Ndjungu are missionaries serving The United Methodist Church of Cameroon.

Rev. Nkemba is working as Mission Superintendent of the Cameroon Mission of the Board of Global Ministries. Mbwizu assists her husband with his duties as mission superintendent.  Some of Rev. Nkemba’s responsibilities include overseeing church construction and development, and also working with United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM)teams. Together, they help to develop ministries related to education and healthcare delivery services.             

What is mission?

Nkemba: “In the definition, we say that mission is being sent. Going and accepting that which is asked of you—that is mission. Mission is obeying God’s command to go and spread the news of salvation. That’s what we try to do. Be it in Senegal or Cameroon, we don’t insist on people coming to our church, we insist that people meet Jesus and see God. ”

Why is mission necessary?

Nkemba: “One of the questions I hear asked every time I come to the US,  as we go around to the churches is, ‘Why are you guys in Cameroon? The Presbyterian church is there, the Baptist church is there, and the Catholic church is there.’ Mission is necessary, because one, it is God’s command. He said go into the world and make of all nations disciples, so when we obey, it’s God’s command. Two, it transforms the world.”
