PETER AND DIANE WHITMAN for Gogo Children’s Feeding Center
Gogo Children’s Feeding and Learning Center is located in Gogo Village Malawi. What began as a conversation between Peter Whitman in the United States and Pastor Daniel Masanduko of Gogo continues as a growing ministry. The two men believed the Lord was calling them (and their spouses) together to help orphaned and vulnerable children in Gogo village. The elderly also benefit from projects in Gogo to fulfill the call of James 1:27 (Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.)
 Pastor Daniel’s church (Jesus Outreach Church) and Peter’s (First Baptist Church of Narragansett, RI) stepped forward to assist in these efforts.
Mercy Rogers Monjeza of Blantyre Malawi was brought on as the project coordinator in November of 2017 as the program began. Peter and Diane Whitman traveled to Gogo village in March of 2018 as many of the projects started.
Projects include: Building of a new church which also serves as the feeding and learning center; Drilling a new bore hole well for water; Starting and maintaining a feeding program for vulnerable children (averaging over 120 per day as of August 2018); Starting a nursery school for children under 5 years old.

  • They serve with Crossworld in Quebec in a multi-cultural French church in Verdun on the island of Montreal.  Their region is a mosaic of cultures and religions.  For example, in the neighborhoods around Verdun in recent years, two traditional churches were bought by Buddhist groups and one other hosts a Sikh association.  In their area of Montreal there are about 120,000+ French-speaking people and few conservative evangelical French churches. One of the challenges of ministry in Quebec is accompanying first generation believers (and pastors) who do not have a Christian heritage in their family or culture.
  • Their vision in serving with a French-Canadian pastor, is to share the Gospel and disciple believers primarily through the ministry of the Verdun church and also on a secular campus and in the city.
  •  Barbara’s ministry is with ladies, children and helping with the local CEF mailbox club.

 David and Kathryn joined World Team in 1978. They left for France in 1981 where they are involved in full time church planting. There were two small evangelical churches when they arrived in Cergy-Pontoise, a “Ville nouvelle” situated 25 miles North West of Paris. During their 16 years of ministry there, God used them and their team to start two new churches. They are mature churches today with French pastors and national leadership in place. During a period of 5 years David and Kathryn ministered at Black Forest Academy in southern Germany.
