Titus Davis family benefit
to be Saturday August 21
Faith Free of Stanley is holding a benefit din ner for the family of a pastor named Titus Davis, who went missing in Liberia on June 24, 2021.
Davis, who was former president of the church planting movement Evangelical Free Church of West Africa, leaves a wife named Dorkus and six children as they and others pray for his safe return. Prior to going missing Davis served as the leader of Reach Africa and a Master Trainer with Meridian University. With Titus missing there is very little income, as he was the family breadwinner. Mike Unterschuetz of Faith Free filled in some of the details surrounding Davis' disappearance.
“First I want to make a statement about his character,” Unterschuetz said of Pastor Davis, who disappeared while walking to a
main road in Liberia on June 24. "He's a man of faith and a very
trustworthy guy.” The pastor and his family live in an area away from the road, Unterschuetz said. Mike and his wife Xiaoyan served as missionaries in Liberia, leading to the connection. In the meantime, details of what happened are scarce.
"It's a real mystery what happened to him," Unterschuetz
said. “No less than eight of his neighbors saw him walking, with one reporting he entered a motorized three-wheel taxi similar to a rickshaw—the last anyone has seen of Davis. In the meantime there have been no ransom demands or notes, and while the feeling is he is still alive, there's no certainty to this. For now, though, there's still a family without a breadwinner to sup – port, Davis' wife Dorkus and their six children. The proceeds of the August 21 benefit dinner will go "100 percent" to the Da – vis family and are meant to help fund the children's education.
"In Liberia, if you don't pay for your school before you go, you can't go," Unterschuetz said of the on the ground re – ality in West Africa. Of the couple's six children, three are
in college, one is disabled, another is in middle school, and another is in primary school, he said. Without a breadwinner the family has no income or support at present.
As such, the benefit dinner to help them out will be Saturday,
August 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. and will have an “authentic Mexican and Chinese banquet,” with dine-in and takeout options both available. The cost of the meal is donation to a family in need.
