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: Youth Conferences

Caleb and Emily Christiansen Prayer Letter: Youth ConferencesYou may remember a couple of prayer letters ago that I mentioned some regional Youth Conferences geared toward challenging young people to surrender to the ministry. I had the opportunity to travel to the second conference in a city called Ibadan. It was a privilege to preach and teach at this “Who Will Go?” Conference, along with Nigerian pastors and a couple other missionaries. It was a great few days, getting to spend time with the young people and present to them the need for those to spread the Gospel to Nigeria, as well as God’s ability to provide for them. It can be a challenge for people here to even consider surrendering to the ministry since many often see the ministry as having no money. Nigerian culture teaches their youth that they need to go make as much money as they can to support the family, and anything that doesn’t make money is worthless. So far in these 2 conferences, we have had 170 young people attend, 16 young men surrender to the ministry, and many others surrender to serve God in any way that He leads them. Please pray that these young people will stay faithful to God’s calling in their lives. We have one more of these conferences coming up this year during the first week of June, so please pray that it will be well attended, that God will work in the hearts of those who come, and that more will surrender to serve God with their whole lives.

It was wonderful getting to celebrate our little Lydia’s first birthday. She is such a joy in our lives and wins the hearts of people wherever she goes. Thank you to everyone who sent messages to wish her a happy birthday. We had fun celebrating, and Lydia loved having ice cream for the first time—although she wasn’t a huge fan of the cake.

Please pray, as we have had several recent difficulties with our vehicle. We needed to replace our engine and had a car accident within a short time of each other. Fortunately, we had enough in our emergency fund to cover the repairs, but it took a lot. Since so many of you have told us to let you know if we need anything personally, I wanted to let you know of this so anyone that wanted to give towards the need could.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for the national elections here in Nigeria. There was strife in places, but nothing nationwide. The president and vice president who won the election are both Muslims, which makes some people nervous about what they will do about Christian persecution in Nigeria. Please pray with us that our ability to spread the Gospel here will remain unhindered.

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
