Part I: When Pastor Oumar returned to town, Fred was worried. Formerly a minister in another denomination, Pastor Oumar had been a bitter opponent of the Adventist Church. But when Fred learned that Pastor Oumar’s wife was suffering from demon possession, he saw an opportunity to help.
I believed God was going to do something wonderful for Pastor Oumar and his wife.
Like Christ, our missionaries leave the comfort of their homes, families and friends to go and serve in underdeveloped countries where things like electricity and running water are privileges.
Jesus came into my life and changed it. “Thank you, Father, for finding me and making what I am today.”
I breathed a short prayer asking God to save me and my friend from this satanic trap. Then I gathered my courage and headed for the Adventist church.
Please pray that the gospel will continue to make headway in Foriforiya.
Only persistent prayers can give us victory over Satan.
“This Jesus who has redeemed you is God himself. If He has transformed you, the Mariam I knew, and chosen Daniel for you, then you can trust Him!”
“Now I want to follow the teachings of my Redeemer. From the bottom of my heart, I forgive you.’”
If we lift up Jesus in our lives, our members, coworkers and our neighbors will be drawn to Him.

Guinea, West Africa
Fredrick Bankole and Isatta Bintu Coker and their children have been bringing the gospel of Christ to the Susu people of Guinea, West Africa, since 2002. Forging friendships with their largely Muslim Susu neighbors, the Cokers enjoy rich theological discussions with many people who have never before considered the witness of Issa (Jesus). The Cokers are working to form these interests into the core of a future church among the Susu.
