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 Christiansen Prayer Letter: Two-Edged Sword of Deputation

Caleb Christiansen Prayer Letter: Two-Edged Sword of DeputationThere is never a dull time on the road. The Lord blessed us on our travels in September, ranging from Iowa to Massachusetts and many places in between. Thank you all for praying, as we have not had one car accident on the road—not even a scratch.

Although Emma has been growing like a weed, she can’t take a turn driving yet, although, as you can see from the picture, I’m sure she will want to drive as soon as she can.

It is wonderful, as we travel from church to church, to meet so many great people across the country. However, that can be a two-edged sword, as that makes it all the harder on us when we need to say goodbye. One of the most challenging things for us about deputation is when we put forth labor in a church and then need to leave. It’s like leaving a small part of ourselves behind as we gain a heart and love for the church and people.

For example, the Eastern Hills Baptist Church let us stay in their prophet’s chamber for two weeks while we were in Western Iowa. While we were there, we went visiting and soul winning several times in preparation for their biggest Sunday of the year—Friend Sunday! Unfortunately, we needed to leave the area before Friend Sunday arrived. Praise the Lord that their pastor got ahold of me a few days ago and told me that they had over 200 in attendance for Friend Sunday, and more than 30 people were saved. Hallelujah! Although we did not personally get to see the fruits of our efforts there, I’m glad that we have a faithful God Who still gives the increase.

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
