The Account of Bishop Frank Otchere (a.k.a Bishop Aparche)
In 1998, I gave my life to Christ in the then Lighthouse Chapel International in Kumasi. Exactly a year after, God brought Bishop Dag on a visit to our church in Kumasi, where he preached a message on missions that touched and transformed my life forever.
It was during that service that I believe I received an impartation and a desire to serve the Lord as a missionary. Soon after that encounter, I gained admission to the University of Cape Coast, where I had my bachelor’s degree in agriculture and had the privilege of serving as the pastor of our campus church for two years.
Soon after graduating, I applied for full time work in the church after I had expressed my desire and passion to serve the Lord as a full-time pastor. I had the privilege to work as the vicar at the headquarters at the time.
In 2005, I got married to my wife after her return from the UK, and was sent on missions to Mozambique, where I started my full-time missionary work. Before my departure to Mozambique, I had a meeting with the Mission Society of the church, and I was given all the necessary assistance to make my departure and stay in Mozambique smooth.
My pastor, Bishop Dag, prayed for me and encouraged me strongly to do my best for the Lord in Mozambique. I was excited and ready to do my best. I saw this as a great opportunity for me, as a young man, to be entrusted with a whole international mission. This was my chance to become great!
Whiles in Mozambique I constantly received financial assistance from our mission society to take care of my accommodation as well as the purchase of a car to assist me in my mission work.
It has been 16 years since I was sent to Mozambique, and today, God has blessed us with the largest charismatic mission church in Mozambique, with an average Sunday attendance of over 3500 people through the support and leadership of Bishop Dag Heward-Mills.
Besides the cathedral where I pastor in Maputo, we are building 6 other cathedrals in different parts of Mozambique. As I have remained faithful serving the Lord on the mission field God has also graciously taken care of me and my family in Mozambique. I never thought that all my three children will get free tuition from 2 of the best schools in the country. God has been very faithful to us.
As the scriptures says in 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is He who has called us, who also will do”. What God has done for me is beyond my wildest imagination, and I thank God for using Bishop Dag to send me to Mozambique, and to touch the many souls who are in church now who did not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal savior. I was a young man, but Bishop Dag had faith in me.
