  • John Davis

  • Theodor Yonkeu   

    I serve the Lord Jesus Christ as one of the pastors in Grace Church Philly with my wife and two children. Before coming to the USA, I served as a senior pastor in more than 20 churches in Cameroon under the Full Gospel Mission of Cameroon. Here in Philadelphia, I have been serving for more than 7 years under the leadership of John Davis. As a pastor, I preach on Sundays from time to time, conduct bible studies in French on Wednesdays, and outreach once a month on Saturdays. Twice or thrice a year, a team of pastors, me included, we go the Cameroon for missionary work, to train local pastors and equip them for ministry. Recently, my wife and I decided to launch a ministry to the women and children, boys and girls, to empower them to use natural and local resources to improve their quality of lives; we added to that a Tabitha ministry that my wife has been leading for many years.

Canes for the Blind in Cameroon

There are over 600,000 blind people in Cameroon. In partnership and support of our sister church, Grace Church Philly, we have the opportunity to assist them in raising money for canes for the blind of Cameroon. We have already committed to sending 200 canes. In fact, they are already ordered and on their way to Cameroon. During the month of March, our church will be doing a collection for the canes. $7 is the cost for one cane. We are excited for this chance to assist our brothers and sisters as they minister to people of Cameroon. If the Lord should lay it on your heart to assist in this collection, I invite you to join us. Please clearly mark your checks or giving envelopes “For Canes” should you want to contribute.
