BAMENDA, CAMEROON—There is an ongoing political conflict in Bamenda, Cameroon. As a result, Luke Society ministry director Dr. Paul Atem and his wife, Comfort, made the difficult decision to move out of their home and into the Mount Zion Clinic more than a year ago.
They moved because their home neighborhood was experiencing heavy machine gun fire which came to a head when about 20 soldiers opened fire into their house, shattering glass and leaving many bullet holes. Miraculously no one was hurt.
From the executive director

I hope this website helps you understand clearly the mission of the Luke Society, and gives you a glimpse of how the Kingdom of God is expanding through the work of our ministry partners."
