African Good Samaritan Mission is a faith-based non -profit organization devoted to providing assistance, and social services for low-income children and families at risk in villages and inner cities of Africa.


Our Vision is to be recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in developing programs that foster children's ethical, social, and intellectual development in Africa rural communities. We will also strive to deepen children's commitment to pro-social and moral values such as kindness, helpfulness, personal responsibility, and respect for others.

During Summer 2006, Missionary Month at IRC church, a banner was placed under both large screens displaying Acts 1-8b 'ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth'.

According to Ms. Doyce Hayth, the Pastor explained that Jerusalem would be like the local area,   Judea would be like, Tampa Bay,   Samaria would be like, Florida, while the   Uttermost part would be like, the World. When the Pastor compared Jerusalem to our local area, I started praying for God to use me in a Christian way in the LaPlaza Community where I reside, in Clearwater. In the meantime, Mr. Michael DeRemer, IRC member, was praying to teach a Bible Study and a mutual Christian friend introduced us.  This lead to the start of Laplaza Bible Study by Doyce Hayth in the Laplaza Community in October 2006.  The Laplaza Bible study now continues to draw members from inside and outside of Laplaza community.

In the Fall of 2007, Dr Rosaline Olade moved to Florida and bought a house in the Laplaza Community , became a member of the bible study. She discussed her Christian background and noted that she retired early from her professional job, and hopes to serve the Lord, and prays for the Lord to show her the way. Meanwhile she said she will be staying in Florida, and then will be going to Nigeria  to visit her mother and other siblings. In November 2007, Ms. Cathy Hobson, a member of LaPlaza's Bible Study unexpectedly gave a donation to Dr Rosaline Olade, which she wanted her to help give to orphanages while on her vacation to Nigeria, Africa. 

On her return trip, Dr Olade shared her experience of giving out the donation to two orphanages, and how searching the community to deliver the donation gave her more inspiration to serve the Lord. This donation became the planted seed of the Holy Spirit that continued to motivate her to do more for the poor children in rural areas of Africa. The Bible Study continued to pray for God to show her the way. While the Bible Study prayed weekly about this, she also approached her church for guidance, and after many phone calls and hours of internet research about registration and financing, she officially founded the African Good Samaritan Missions, Inc., in June 2008.  

While the first Missionary seed by  Ms.Cathy Hobson, was a donation in memory of her departed parents, it  has ignited the Holy Spirit to support  the beginning this Mission. In addition, the Lord has used all the members of the Laplaza Bible study as Prayer Warriors to support this Mission. Mr. Bob Fix leads the Bible Study weekly  and members continue to pray for the success of this mission.

'Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.' Phil 4: 6,7
