  Cameroon 
Description
On the Gulf of Guinea, Cameroon is sometimes called "Little Africa" because of its diversity of culture and landscape. Half the population retain indigenous beliefs, but Christians outnumber Muslims two to one. Although nationals quickly accepted the Seventh-day Adventist message, it took nearly 40 years to reach all provinces after the first baptism in 1929. Of every four members, three are under 30 years of age. Women's efforts are resulting in large baptisms. Youth are also active in campaigns. Medical/Dental institutions, nursery schools, primary and secondary schools, and the university are leading to baptisms. The challenges to growth are lack of training for pastors and enlistment of laypersons in witnessing.
