We met Bishop Markus in 2016 at Jakaranda retreat center where he was one of the speakers during a clergy conference for the diocese of Kaduna. During this time we had extensive discussions with him about how we might develop a partnership.
His Diocese of Kafanchan in Kaduna State is rural and poor with many needs. There is a refugee camp consisting of displaced persons as a result of communal violence. Many of the men were killed in the violence, homes and farms were destroyed. Many of those in this camp are widows and orphans. The churches of the Diocese are doing their best to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of these suffering people.
We are honored to have Bishop Markus Dogo and his wife Mrs. Nana Dogo as our keynote speakers at our benefit dinner on October 19. You will be able to hear first hand from this amazing couple and the work they are doing to show the love of Jesus in word and deed.
It has been a long road over the past two years of planning, coordinating, fundraising and eventually building and finally opening a full-time clinic in the town of Gidan Waya in April 2018.
Bishop Markus is a force to reckon with and hearing from him first hand is going to be amazing!
