David Cordeau is a Vietnam veteran whose life was radically changed by God. After rededicating his life to God at the age of 30, he shares that his heart has was transformed towards the people he was trained to hate, to one of love and commitment. Over the course of 34 years, pastoring a church in upstate New York, David has done extensive missionary work, primarily in Vietnam and Cambodia. There he has focused on providing basic needs for orphans, widows and those who have committed there lives serving others. Seeing lives transformed through the teaching of the Word of God, training leaders as well as humanitarian efforts, has been a lifelong dream he and his wife, Nolia, plan to continue.
When David began experiencing chest pain as he was planning his next trip to Asia, doctors confirmed he needed a quadruple bypass. He underwent a 12 hr surgery on June 12, 2017 in New Haven, Connecticut. This included a hospital stay with extensive expenses for 14 days for David and 14 days of hotel stay for Nolia.
