“Faith in God” is the message passed across to students of CUIB alongside faculty, staff and other members of the community during the CUIB Ecumenical Prayer weekend organized by the university’s Catholic Studies Department to pray for Cameroon. This prayer session which took place at the CUIB-Berakah Village under the theme “Never Say No Way”, was coordinated by priests of the CUIB campus ministry; Rev. Fr. Francoix Xavier and Rev. Fr. Veghose Jude Visoh and presided over by Rev. Fr. George Nkeze Jingwa, President of the University. Drawing from Hebrews 11:6 in his spiritual talk, the President reminded students and other participants that “without Faith, it is impossible to please God”.
He further called on students to remain steadfast in Faith and trust in GOD who is the only one who will make a way in the midst of the current Crisis plaguing the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon that has resulted in many students roaming the streets and getting involved in criminal acts that betray their future dreams. While assuring students that everything works for the good of those who love God, Father George challenged the students not to focus on the problem that has stopped them from attending classroom lectures, but rather to seek solutions to the problem in order to attain their goals and be the best of who they are.
As some students worry about the future of their educational career in the midst of the “Anglophone Crisis”, the CUIB management is convinced that God has the final say. This explains why the CUIB family dedicates their time during this period of uncertainty to Pray for Cameroon every day at 12:00 noon. Students of CUIB left the prayer ground hopeful and more inspired “God has given me a measure of Faith. I no longer fear for I know He will make a way for me in all my endeavors” said Sydoline, student in the College of Business
