So what does a missionary do anyway? Perhaps you have always wondered what a missionary does and how they spend their days? Do they carry a Bible and talk about Jesus all day? Do they feed the poor? In this webinar, we will be joined by 3 missionaries who will share their own experiences as missionaries and the work they are involved in. Charity Cadieux is a missionary serving in Ghana. Sandy Yeh served in Angola. Jono Stanley served in South Sudan and now currently in Canada.
Join us on September 24 @ 7pm EDT. Register today!
I am 28 years old and I grew up in a family that was and still is passionate about seeing the church planted and growing in unreached areas. My walk with Christ has slowly deepened over the last 20 years. Some highlights of my time following him include 6 months serving with YWAM-Mercy Ships in Australia, seeing the Spirit work to soften the hearts of factory workers in my career as a millwright and marrying my wife Rachel and serving together in South Sudan. I currently live in Scarborough with the hope that our Lord will become known among the North African community here.
I started my journey among the Sisaala people of Ghana in West Africa as a two-year short term. God used this time in my life to shape and mold me in ways I had not known I could be shaped. I left with a heart that kept the Sisaala people close even though the kilometers were far. Six years later, with a grateful heart God flung the door open for me to return long term. What a privilege it is to see what God is doing among the Sisaala people and to join Him in what He is and will do. I am working with the church to reach out and disciple youth, develop leaders and walk alongside them as we journey together in our faith.
After approximately 30 years of civil war, Angola is rebuilding itself but there are still lots of changes including lack of access to proper medical care. Through my training as a surgical resident, I have had the opportunity to witness the work of CEML in Lubango (ceml.org) in providing timely access to proper surgical treatment, medical training of local Angola doctors, as well as relationship building and spiritual discipling among the foreign missionaries and Angolan staff. Now that I have finished my training, I returned to CEML as a general surgeon to work alongside full time missionary surgeons and to share their burden for both spiritual and physical healing among the Angolan people. Additionally, God called me to reach the mandarin speaking contract workers in Angola.
