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: Occupy Till I Come

Caleb and Emily Christiansen Prayer Letter: Occupy Till I ComeGreetings from down South! We have been traveling in the South for the past month after some time in the Midwest. The weather we’ve encountered has been very hot and humid—perfect training weather for Nigeria! 😊 We are always grateful for the extra training that God provides for us.

Thank you all for praying that churches would continue to take us on. Over half of the churches that we have been to in the last two months have already taken us on for support. In fact, we had three churches in a row vote to take us on right in the service. We praise the Lord that we are now just under 70% of our needed support.

Emma has reached another great milestone! She turned one year old on May 11. It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed since she made her grand entrance. In many ways, it feels like she just arrived, but we can hardly imagine what life would be like without her. And, as you can see by the picture here, she definitely enjoyed her birthday cake.

Please pray with us that as the weather warms up, people’s hearts will warm to the Gospel as well. We have found that around the country, generally speaking, people are now more comfortable talking with strangers about the Gospel despite some people’s fear of COVID. So far this year, we’ve only had one person call the authorities on us to complain about us going door to door spreading the Gospel. 😊 Let’s take advantage of this and be diligent to reach people with the Gospel in these summer months. “. . . Occupy till I come.” (Luke 19:13)

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
