Her love for the children of Harvest Children‘s Home (HCH) began in 2005 when she began talking with Valentin about the needs of the children in Fundong, Cameroon.
After her first trip to visit these children and our partners in the area, she was ready to commit to helping Cry Cameroon Ministries [USA] and Harvest Children‘s Home (HCH)

short term humanitarian work and enjoys volunteering for projects with Cry Cameroon Ministries [USA] while looking for clear opportunities for increased ministry outreach
both locally and around the world. The driving force behind her humanitarian efforts is her desire and calling to spread the knowledge of Christ and
to teach believers of all ages how to grow in their Christian faith.
is the newest Board Member
of Cry Cameroon Ministries [USA]. He was born and raised in Hartshorne, Oklahoma and earned his Master’s degree in Public Health (MPH)
at Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans. With a heart for health–and–nutrition–related mission programs, Justin is currently working on
health, nutrition, and community development projects in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but his home in Africa will always be with the Harvest kids in Cameroon.
Justin loves to travel and learn new languages, which is one of the reasons he believes God has called him to work full–time in Africa. One of his favorite memories from
Harvest Children‘s Home (HCH) is spending hours and hours in the soccer field behind the orphanage improving his Kom (the dialect of this part of Northwest Cameroon) with
the children. Having visited the orphanage many times, he still looks forward to the next time he will be able to visit, and is always happy to chat with
someone interested in international missions.
