Fred & Isatta Coker

Career Missionary since June 2012, serving the Susu people of Guinea, West Africa.

Our family has been serving the Susu People since 2002. Our son Fred Jr. is now 24, Emmanuel is 17, Patricia is 14 and Florence is 11.

The Susu Project has gone through two phases. Phase one began with the project’s first missionaries, the Coleman family. Our family had the privilege of joining this project in 2002 as Bible workers. During this phase, together with the Coleman family, a church-group was planted with about seven local members. We also started a school with five students. This phase ended in 2010 with a church group of 15 baptized members and the school serving about 100 students.

The second phase started in 2012 under our leadership as AFM career missionaries. As we forged friendships with our Muslim Susu neighbors, we have meaningful theological discussions with people who have never considered Christ’s salvation. We also are constantly working to build our school’s ministry. The church-group has grown to become an organized church with 50 baptized members and 60-70 people attending each Sabbath. We also have two daughter church groups in two surrounding villages. We have groomed church members for leadership positions. Currently, they are leading all of the church activities. We are now starting to teach about the sanctuary doctrine and basic Bible prophesies.

By mid-2021, we plan to move to another country to start a new AFM project.

Tempted

It is the Holy Spirit who leads us to God’s wandering children, and it is the Holy Spirit who convicts their hearts.
