Called to Mission


I am Diane Yonga, a parishioner from the Cathedral of St. Paul, in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  I will be serving as a Lay Mission Helper (LMH) missioner, in the Diocese of Damongo, Ghana, teaching Nutrition classes to students at St. Ann’s High School, an all-girl’s Catholic high school in Damongo.

One evening in October 2017, as I was in bed praying, God spoke to my heart and told me clearly “now is the time”.  God has called me to do overseas mission work – a seed planted in high school when I was enamored by thoughts of joining the Peace Corp.  These many years later, I am excited to encounter Christ in the people of Ghana!  I hope you enjoy following my adventures via this blog.
