Saddleback Church, Isatu Nwokedi-Timbo & First Lady Sia Koroma

Saddleback Church is an evangelical Christian megachurch located in Lake Forest, California, situated in southern Orange County, affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. The church was founded in 1980 by Pastor Rick Warren. Weekly church attendance averages nearly 20,000, currently making it easily amongst the largest churches in the United States.

Not only does he oversee such a massive ministry but also, Pastor Rick Warren is heavily influential in America to the extent that he was the only Reverend chosen to say the Invocation (Prayers) at the Obama Inauguration earlier this year. Infact, during the campaigns that swept Obama into office, Pastor Warren hosted Americas first ever 2008 Presidential Debate between Obama and his opponent.

Pastor Warren

Pastor Warren has a vision for the world which took his Ministry to Rwanda where he pumped in millions and millions of dollars in building over 300 health clinics and 275 pharmacy outlets.

It is this same vision he has for Sierra Leone that made him send the high powered delegation to Freetown due to the lobbying efforts of Sierra Leones dynamic First Lady Sia Koroma and the wife of Vice President, Kadia Sam-Sumana who both held discussions with the Pastor, his wife and members during their recent trip to California. Much credit for eventually bringing the Assessment team to Sierra Leone should however be given to President Koromas appointed International Goodwill Ambassador, Madam Isatu Nwokedi-Timbo.

Many Sierra Leoneans are hopeful that the current Assessment Team from the Saddleback Church will be moved enough to report back to their Church, positive things about the need to help the people of this beautiful country in the same way their church helped the people of Rwanda.
