The Easter service conducted by Chaplain Mvondo focused on the importance and significance of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Preaching from I Corinthians 15:1-34, he emphasized the fact that the truth of the resurrection is the cornerstone and foundation of our faith. David summarized his message this way: “If we believe that Christ rose from the dead, we must also walk in the power of the risen Savior with the expectation that we too shall be raised from the dead, Christ being the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. The same power of God that raised Christ from the dead is available to all believers so that we may walk in it today.”
Major David Mvondo was raised in the Cameroon and came to know the Lord as a student in the Bible College established under Don Hocking’s ministry. He attended Seminary in the states and was then able to get a slot in the U.S. Army Reserves as a chaplain. He was soon sent to Iraq for a one-year tour, and was then accepted into Active Duty upon his return to the states, gaining U.S. citizenship in the process.
David met his wife Whitney during his seminary training in the States. They are the proud parents of three children.
