  • Pastor Idohou A. Roland born in POBE, SOUTH Benin and is one of four  children from the union of Stephen and Cecile.  He started his ministry   in  Cotonou  at the  age of 23, when he served as the translator for 5 years in the Divine Grace Ministry.



    After graduating from living Word Bible School, he moved to Akpakpa.  In Akpakpa, upon receiving Ordination he continued his ministerial training under the leadership of Rev Odege Nnanna at Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Benin.



    After serving faithfully for three years under Rev Odege  Nnanna, Pastor Roland was assigned to The Evangelical Presbyterian church Bohicon, .  There he served as Residential Minister for 3 years.

     And later was lead by God to start he’s ministry in August 2008 call “SALEM Ministries”

    Today SALEM Ministries has only one local church due to the fact that the founder works for order organization to get money to sponsor his ministry. During the year 2009 Roland spent 10 months working with Mercy ships, got money and always come back each Sunday of the week to preach in his church. The local church is establishing on land that does not belong to us.

    We are able through the help of God to establish prison ministry in January 2010 with the help  of mercy ship field representative ,souls are save ;we started in my room in those day but today we have a place of worship provide by God

  • Hi, I am Cindy Rich . I am a nurse/Midwife. I served on the Thai/Burma border with O.M (mercy Teams branch) I was there for 2 years. I am back in the UK and have been for 18 months and am having to completely rebuild my life as my husband left me whilst in Thailand. He was a Pastor . There has been little help or support and all my family parents and children are scattered around the globe serving Jesus in Mission. I am committed to returning to SE Asia and am now refocusing on when and how to prepare myself.Would love a mentor to chat with and get to know, who can give me some Godly wisdom. I was a mission coodinator for my home church so am clued up on some of it but am dying to make friends with people who have a heart for mission.
  • Hi, My name is Ruth and I have been serving with YWAM for 12 years.  For the past 7 years I've been in South Africa, where I still live.  I still feel like a beginner in missions, but would love to share my experiences and be a listening ear to others starting out.  I've been involved in mission training programs, establishing a discipleship ministry for girls, and most recently getting my teeth into church planting and community development in the inner city.  I'd love to hear from anyone who wants to connect!


  • I don't feel particularly qualified for this, because my experience is limited, but anyway:  I spent 4 years in Paraguay with SIM, working in a Christian Early Years teacher training college, teaching English and doing teaching practice supervision, as well as a host of other things... I did some thinking and writing about being single while I was there - you can find my stuff on my blog if you're interested (link on my page).  I found working on the mission field very rewarding and would be glad to help mentor others who felt I had something to offer them... get in touch!
