Bishop Story

A Promise Kept

Many have asked me why I choose to do what I do, why a Bible Bishop, why Africa, why Sierra Leone...

I did not choose this path, I was chosen. A Chosen Child of Destiny - A Chosen Son of Dentiny. My destiny was inevitable - fate if you will. I am to do what God has chosen me to do.

I have had many blessings in my life and one of these was to be adopted (chosen) by my mother, Bertha M. Brown, fondly known in Africa as Nana Akosua Fosua Aduanwoma. On an early trip to Ghana together in 1996, she made me promise to "Not forget the children." This has been a promise I must keep. It is a driving force within me.

I know she is proud and rejoicing about our plans for Sierra Leone's children and selfishly wish she would be able to witness this with me. In September 2001, Bertha M. Brown - Nana Akosua Fosua Aduanwoma died while I was on a five country tour in Africa. They were not able to reach me until the day of her funeral while entering Ghana. By the time I got home to Illinois, she had been dead for 10 days. At her gravesite all I could do was cry, so I took off my International Gold Bishop Cross that I was wearing and stuck in deep in the soil of her grave. She taught me many things but most importantly about unconditional love.

God continues teaching me to love. I am only one man that God has chosen to show love to many for which I am thankful.

The signing of the MOU's with the government of Sierra Leone is in many ways closure for me. I am keeping my promise to my mother to "Not forget the children." It is also just the beginning...because I have been chosen.

"Do not forget the children." Nana Akosua Fosua Aduanwoma (my mother)

In Honor of my mother, Bertha M. Brown (Nana Akosua Fosua Aduanwoma of Taniso-Techiman, Ghana)
