Nona Freeman Following Her Stroke

She’s an amazing woman of God: on this video, mere days following her recent stroke, from her hospital bed, Sister Freeman speaks.

God bless her and keep her.

Nona Freeman, veteran missionary to Africa, is one of the best-loved writers in Pentecost. Nona and her husband, E. L. Freeman, began their life of missions in 1948 in South Africa. They left the United States with their five children ranging in ages from nine years to six months. They spent the next forty-one years in Africa, returning to the states on furlough every seven, six or five years. Even after her husband’s death in 1999, at the age of ninety, she continues to travel, preach and speak. She has served the Lord in ministry for seventy years

Nona Freeman, a Soldier

EDIT: January 8, 2009 I understand that Sister Freeman has had a stroke, also has pneumonia, and is in an intensive care unit. Let’s pray for this tremendous woman of God.

On Friday and Saturday in Bellflower, CA. I was in services with, among other people, Nona Freeman. She is a soldier–a 90 year-old soldier of the cross. She lives in Texas and speaks somewhere every weekend. Her daughter travels with her, caring for airline tickets, luggage, etc.

Nona Freeman is a remarkable woman. She and her late husband, for 41 years, I believe, were missionaries to the continent of Africa. In the early years of their lives, they answered God’s call to South Africa, taking five small children with them. Later, Brother Freeman was given the oversight of the entire continent of Africa for the United Pentecostal Church International.

In the late 1980s, they returned to the United States, continuing their ministry here. Since his death a few years ago, Nona continues to be actively involved in the work of God. He is her life, her passion, her joy. She has written multiple books.

I salute this remarkable woman of God.
