Walking with Christ in West Africa
Originally from Accra, Ghana, I am now resident in the UK with my family. I was educated at the Presbyterian Secondary School, Odumase-Krobo and Mawuli School, Ho, before coming to the UK to read Medicine at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. I worked at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in the late 1960s and again mid 1970s before emigrating to the UK in 1987.
I was converted at a Scripture Union Boys' Camp at Winneba in 1955 and have seen the Lord do great things in my personal life and the lives of my family members over the years. As a family we have a strong interest in mission work in Africa and South America, and I am therefore happy and very privileged to be part of Renew West Africa, helping to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to West Africa
After his move to Exmouth John Day made contact with Richard having heard that he and his family had lived and worked in Africa. Richard was inspired by what John had to say, his methods of evangelism and his vision for the transformation of local communities.
Richard’s expertise is in financial management and training in Church and Development Organisations. He welcomes this opportunity to support those who are sharing the Gospel across West Africa.
Hippolite was born into a Roman Catholic family in Nigeria but became a believer and bond-servant of the Lord Jesus during his undergraduate days at the University. He has been committed to evangelism and missions since 1988, and has embarked on various kinds of Christian missionary assignments within and outside Nigeria. He presently applies his medical and engineering trainings/professional skills to champion quarter-yearly Nigeria-wide medical mission outreaches that target reduction of neonatal mortality and morbidity among Nigerian babies. He is a medical researcher, scholar and visiting consultant neonatal-thermoneutralist to 15 Teaching Hospitals in Nigeria.
