Caleb’s Testimony:

I had the great privilege to be born into a faithful pastor’s home. I grew up in a godly, Christian environment being exposed to the Gospel at a young age. I was saved as a six-year-old boy when after a junior church service I realized that I wasn’t saved even though I was the Pastor’s son. I went to my father’s office between the morning and evening service and asked my father how I could go to Heaven. He showed me straight from the Bible how to be saved and I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour that day.

Emily’s Testimony:

I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Maine, and I am a fourth-generation ‘Mainiac’. I was given the privilege of growing up in a good godly home, where my family attended church anytime the doors were open.

At the age of 5, I made a profession of faith, but I was not truly saved until the age of 14. I struggled with doubts about my salvation for many months until a Wednesday night in September of 2008 after teen soul-winning. I humbled myself by going to my youth pastor, and in his office, I settled my salvation.

I experienced a burden for missions from a very young age as we had missionaries regularly stay in our home. Getting to know missionaries on a personal level and being able to see their love for the Saviour and heart to reach the world impacted me greatly as I grew up. I was called to preach as a teenager and went to Hyles-Anderson College to train for the ministry not sure where in the world the Lord wanted me to serve. However, as I continued my training I became convinced that God wanted me to serve as a missionary and as time went on I became even more convinced that God was calling me to serve in Nigeria.

It was an amazing thing when I first started dating Emily, who would become my wife. I told her at the very beginning of our relationship that I would be going to Nigeria to serve as a missionary, and she revealed to me that she had the desire to be a missionary in Africa since she was a little girl. I was so awed that God would bring into my life a helpmeet with a vision so much like my own.

God has been so good in calling us to Nigeria. He has prepared both of us by allowing us to serve in soul winning and bus ministry from when we were young. God has given us both unique opportunities preparing us for Nigeria. God allowed me to work with our missions agency, Fundamental Baptist Missions International, for 7 years as a volunteer, intern, and staff member giving me invaluable insights and training on the work missions. Also, my wife had the opportunity to work in the medical field after graduating from Bible college giving her great skills and knowledge that will assist us once on the field.

Caleb and Emily Christiansen Prayer Letter: A New Church Plant

Caleb and Emily Christiansen Prayer Letter: A New Church PlantThank you to everyone who has been praying for us. For those who did not find out through our ministry Facebook page, at the beginning of March, Emily was in the hospital for about a week due to a very serious infection. This was compounded by the fact that when Emily first went to the hospital, I was on a trip, hours away scouting an area for a church plant. However, God was so good in helping me get back home quickly–not an easy thing in Nigeria. Emily is recovering and still has some ways to go before she is “completely recovered,” but she is showing improvement every day. Many of you reached out telling us that you were praying for us, and we cannot thank you enough for that. God really used your prayers.

Despite my scouting trip ending very suddenly with Emily’s sickness, God really blessed the whole trip. I traveled to the city of Calabar in Southern Nigeria, where we will be partnering with a church to start a church plant north of the city. This church plant will be called Salem Independent Baptist Church. In the time I was there, I was able to preach in a school in the same area as the church plant, go soul winning where the church plant will be, and help to encourage the church as they work to start the church plant. Through our efforts in my time there, we saw nearly 40 people saved. We also praise God that since my time there, we have been able to secure a place for the church plant to meet. Lord willing, the church plant will officially launch in the next two months. Please pray for God to bless and use this new church.

We announced in our last prayer letter that we would return to the U.S. for furlough in May. However, due to Emily’s most recent health challenge, we have decided it is necessary to come back in April for health reasons. Emily has had quite a few health challenges over the past couple of years with the many tropical diseases, and this most recent infection took root because her immune system was already seriously diminished. So, we will be coming back to the U.S. earlier than we had planned to help Emily’s health get stronger. Please pray that God will help our entire family to have much stronger health in future years.

Please continue to pray for us as we prepare for our first furlough, especially since it is sooner than what we had planned. There is much to arrange, including a couple of conferences that we will be taking part in. We will soon be involved with running our second Who Will Go? Youth Conference this year. Please pray that God would strengthen us and that God would use this Youth Conference to change lives and call young people to the ministry.

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
