CELEBRATING 70 YEARS

Some 30 years ago, Pastor Emmanuel J. Moodley planted a new church with only 12 members under the shade of a large tree on a vacant lot in Durban, South Africa. Today, the Bethsaida Full Gospel Church of God boasts a membership of 10,000.

Currently serving as Second Deputy Moderator of the Full Gospel Church of God in South Africa, this illustrious pastor has not only ministered to those in his immediate parish, but has touched innumerable nations with his ministry … Israel, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, UAE, India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Seychelles, Rodriquez, Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Bahamas, Hawaii, Cuba, Jamaica, Russia, England, Hungary, Ile De Sol, Switzerland, Greece, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Brazil, Argentina, Panama City, West Indies, Canada, Portugal, Turkey, Netherlands, Poland, Egypt, Namibia, Lesotho, Angola, Congo, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Kenya, Ghana, Cape Verde Island, the Czech Republic, Libya, Swaziland, Jordan, Malawi, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ukraine, Cyprus, Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Iceland, Romania, Vatican City, Philippines, Senegal, as well as 51 trips to the USA.

Dr. Moodley’s heart is for the people, and he has initiated multiple programs of outreach during his tenure at the Bethsaida church, one being the launching of a Widows Ministry, an historic first for South Africa.

World Missions Director Dr. David M. Griffis, Assistant Director M. Thomas Propes, and Church of God World Missions wish Dr. Emmanuel J. Moodley congratulations on this landmark event, his 70th birthday—to a man who has made his years on earth count for the glory of God!
