Rotifunk is saddened to have learned that Bishop Yambasu of Sierra Leone Area Conference has passed away following a tragic automobile accident on August 16, 2020.

Bishop John K. Yambasu is the Resident Bishop of the Sierra Leone Area, which includes the Sierra Leone Conference in the West Africa Central Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Bishop Yambasu visited Wrightsville United Methodist Church several times and his passion and heart for the impoverished people in remote areas of the Conference helped forge the creation of MOH:Rotifunk. We will forever be inspired by his leadership. Read more about his life and accolades. We send our deep sympathies to his family, friends and all who knew him.
“I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live.”
John 11:25

This is how we remember Bishop Yambasu. Until we see you again.
