Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Medical missionary touring state


Missionary Pierre Manya will be itinerating July 22-31 in Oklahoma. Invite him to present for your church group!

He recently wrote about an impoverished pregnant woman helped because of the services funded by mission giving to the United Methodist health and medical services he coordinates in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Just over 3 feet tall, the woman is a rape victim. She faced death because she could neither give birth normally nor afford a surgical birth.

The ministry provided the $300 needed. A gynecologist and surgeon, Manya has been in medical mission since 1984.

"Intervention was possible thanks to your support to my ministry," Manya wrote. "Now she is witnessing of God’s love to anyone who would listen that, had not it been for the church, she could have died. Now, both her and the baby are doing well."

He already is scheduled to speak at these locations:

• July 24, Nicoma Park UMC

• July 25, United Methodist Ministry Center, OKC, noon

• July 29, Stillwater-First, UMMen breakfast

• July 31, Cyril and Fletcher UMCs

To invite Manya and his wife (his interpreter), contact Karen Distefano at okcsgm@gmail.com  or 918-440-9213. The Advance project is No. 15165Z.
