The Executive President (EP) of the Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Rev. Dr. Nditemeh Charlemagne has spoken words of comfort and encouragement to leaders of the CBC Health Services. Rev, Dr. Nditemeh was speaking during the Leaders Meeting in Yaounde where all leaders of the CBC Health Services had convened for a dual event – the Leaders Meeting which was preceded by Goals and Budgets session from November 17-19, 2022.
The EP used the occasion to acknowledge that health care delivery is witnessing trying times, but he called on all leaders to pray ceaselessly in the exercise of their duties in the Lord’s vineyard. He equally encouraged togetherness and collaboration between all Hospitals and Health Centers of the Organization to ensure sustainability at all levels and to create a balance in healthcare service delivery in all communities.
The Goals and Budgets and the Leaders meetings of the CBC Health Services are annual events intended to have a better appreciation of activities in the previous year and chart a better way forward in the upcoming year.
Chaired by the Director of the CBC Health Services, Prof. Tih Pius Muffih, the 3-day event had in attendance Hospital Administrators, Chiefs of Center, Doctors, Chief Medical Officers, Supervisors of Nursing Services, Program Managers, and Supervisors etc.
Prof. Tih thanked all leaders for their passion in implementing the Mission Statement of “Providing care to all who need it as an expression of Christ Love” to all Cameroon communities.
Activities and as informed by the CBC culture, started daily with devotions. In a devotional thought during the opening session on November 17, Reverend Ngwa Oliver, Chaplain of the CBC Health Services Mvan Resource Center drew inspiration from Proverbs 24: 27, and Luke 14: 28 – 30. He corroborated these verses with what Taylor Tollison said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. To this, he prayed for the institution to realize their goals for 2023 after this session of self-evaluation that will be followed by vision implementation, and application of planned activities.
