Prayer Ministry Leaders
Sis. Faith Hemmeter served as an EFM missionary for over 40 years in Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Bolivia. She was saved in Cleveland, Ohio, at the age of four in the Second Friends Church. God called her to Africa at nine years of age; later she received a second calling, this one to Bolivia, while a student at Olivet Nazarene College.
While retired from active missions work, she serves EFM regularly through the ministry of prayer.
Sis. Irene Maurer first came to EFM in the summer of 1948 to help in the office of Evangelistic Faith Missions. From there she sailed for Egypt in November 1949 as a missionary. For sixty years, she has served with EFM in the home office, in Egypt, Eritrea, and Bolivia.
Raised in a Christian home, she gave my heart to the Lord when she was in her teens. While boarding with a family in New Jersey and attending an independent holiness church, she got settled spiritually. “I was working at a sewing factory at that time and was invited to hear a missionary from British Guyana,” she recounts, “The Lord began talking to me, saying, “What about My work?” One Friday night she went to a youth service where God spoke to her again, and when she went to the altar she felt that God told her again that she was to be a missionary.
While she is currently retired from active missionary service, she continues to serve EFM through the ministry of prayer.
