There are two missionary families serving as Lutheran Bible Translators in Cameroon.
Rev. Mike and Kara Kuhn have been Lutheran Bible Translators of Canada (LBTC) missionaries since 2012. The Kuhns come to LBTC from Calgary, where Pastor Mike was serving as Associate Pastor along with Kara’s father. From the beginning they shared interest in Bible translation, and later on Mike enrolled in the linguistics programme at Trinity Western University in Langley BC. The Kuhns were deployed to Cameroon to work with the Nizaa people, and in their short time in Galim they have made good progress. God has blessed the Kuhns and their team with some wonderful discoveries of translation work that had already been done. Mike hopes to bring some Bible to publication very soon. The Kuhns have three children, Tobias, Gideon, and Gloria.
Martin and Joan Weber have been LBTC missionaries since 1983. The Webers have been a fixture in Bible translation and literacy training in Cameroon for close to 40 years. They raised their three children while in Cameroon. The Webers have supervised two LBTC publications, a New Testament in the Kwanja languages in 2003, and a lectionary (Bible lessons of the day, often used in churches) in 2016. Once the Kwanja NT was completed, they made available to many persons portable audio players that read Bible wherever desired. Hundreds of “Proclaimers” and “Megavoice” players are now in the hands of persons who can hear the Word anytime they desire. The Webers’ work has been a great blessing to all those that heard the Bible in their heart language for the first time. They returned to Cameroon in June 2017 after a successful year-long furlough. The Webers have three grown children: Sarah, Nathan and Samuel.
