Pastor Sabi Ogola, who began his ministry in 1972, has served the local mission in various capacities for more than 40 years. He passed away at Popondetta General Hospital on January 30. He was a District director for Wamabe until the time of his death.
Pastor Ogola was one of the many who pioneered the Mission’s work and maintained its operation. One of his legacies is the renaming of Tetebedi district to Wamabe district.
NEPM president, Pastor Peter Yorio, described Pastor Ogola as one of the most dedicated and humble servants of God who contributed a lot to the growth and expansion of NEPM.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy, and four grown-up children and grandchildren.
