Anita Frederick was raised in South Africa. In 1985 she came
to the United States to work with Cambodian refugees and met
her husband, Dave. In 1995, they were leading a church
plant when Anita was diagnosed with breast cancer. Upon
healing, she embarked on a 40-day journey to Mozambique.
In a roach-infested hospital, a woman accepted Anita’s message
of the gospel on her deathbed, where she found what mattered
most: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these you did
for me.” Anita and Dave now pastor their third church plant
in Illinois, and Anita assists Children Relief International
with mobilization and recruitment.
