Dr. Emmanuel Ufonna Mefor, a medical doctor, is a missionary with the Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church currently assigned to Mutambara, Zimbabwe.
“God’s mission is being carried out through my work by the unending stream of patients being cared for physically, spiritually, and psychologically,” Emmanuel reflects. “God’s blessing is on this ministry as he expands its territory, one of which is improving and restoration of failing sights. His healing hands are making the patients well, which brings joy to everyone. To God be the Glory!”
A native of Kano, Nigeria, Emmanuel earned his medical degree at the University of Maiduguri College of Medicine in Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. In 1997 Dr. Mefor began his service with GBGM as a Person in Mission (PIM) through the Global Mission Partners program.
