The church in Monrovia, Liberia recently celebrated their 20th Anniversary with pomp, and so much excitement. What would you expect from a people who had survived two civil wars that spanned a period of almost ten years and later plagued by a disease (Ebola) of epidemic proportion for three years, yet survived all these, and as a church remained united and strong in the power of the Holy Spirit. Truly, they deserved a rousing celebration.
Our beloved sister in the Lord, Odile Meviye, peacefully passed away Saturday, November 4th after a long battle with cancer.
Originally from Gabon, Odile was living and working in Paris when she met the church in 1988. Just about a year later, she accepted the call to leave with her three-year old son and be part of the mission team to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, even though this meant giving up the 'European Dream' held by many ambitious young Africans. Odile had total confidence that the Lord would provide for her and her son.
In the end, close to 2,000 from over 20 countries attended the 2016 West and Central Africa Discipleship Summit in Accra, Ghana. The theme of the summit was One Body, One Spirit, One Hope and it was indeed an amazing experience highlighting the fact that language and cultures are no barriers in God’s kingdom.
The Ministry Training Academy (MTA) kicked off the 2016 West and Central Africa Discipleship Summit here in Accra, Ghana on August 3, 2016 with the wonderful bilingual worship in French and English.
