Princess Laura Adorka Kofi was born in Asofa, a small town near Accra, Ghana, in Western Africa. She was married and enjoyed a life of love and appreciation for her family. During the early 1920s, her life changed. The Lord God visited her and her father, a tribal king, in dreams and visions. God wanted to use her to do his will. God's will was for Adorka to travel to America and deliver a message of hope and redemption to African Americans. She refused and resisted God by traveling to other parts of Africa. Adorka continued to avoid God's calling, even after suffering two near fatal illnesses. But on the third near death illness, she ultimately, accepted the calling of God.

In 1924, the Princess became a Christian. As an evangelist, Adorka prepared herself for the journey by studying the Holy Scriptures and meditating on the Lord. Adorka also embraced the self-help principles of her church and strategies for economic development that she planned to bring to America. Her father, ruling officials and church ministers endorsed her mission and also charged her to extend open arms and a hardy welcome to African Americans. Adorka arrived in the America, via Canada.  She continued her journey by speaking at civic halls and churches in New York, Detroit and Chicago. Many of the church leaders were impressed of her teachings and compelled her to join their organization. But in the spring of 1927, she was compelled to travel further into the southern part of the United States. Her life was plagued with difficulties and opposition from religious leaders.  Although she did not live see the fulfillment of God's program, as with Christ's Disciples (Except for John), Saint Stephen and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, she died as martyr, knowing that God keeps his promises.
