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: New Bible Study

Caleb and Emily Christiansen Prayer Letter: New Bible StudySome of you may remember that at the beginning of this year, I went to teach at a new Bible college in the northern part of Nigeria. I had the privilege to go there again and teach on Daniel and Revelation for about a week. Seeing all the same students remaining and some new students added was such an encouragement. I enjoyed seeing how they have continued to grow. As I was teaching, they would ask questions at times that made me wonder. I would think to myself, That’s nowhere in the text. Why would they wonder about that? Then asking and looking into their questions further, I found many of these questions came from their former Muslim background. It was so exciting to me to see understanding come to people as their old ways of thinking and understanding began to be rewritten by what the Scriptures actually say. I am still excited about how God will use these men to spread the Gospel in Muslim-dominated areas.

Recently, I’ve helped to start a new Bible study near our church. One common issue that we have been experiencing is that many have a “Christian” Charismatic church they will go to on Sunday mornings, so they will never even consider coming to visit our church. We’ve been meeting at one of our member’s homes once a month on a Sunday evening to have an opening to give the Gospel to people who might not otherwise hear. We have had some neighbors coming, and we praise God that we have seen 4 children saved! Many of the parents and adults have been taking more time to convince. Works-based salvation is very strongly taught in Nigeria, and it can be very difficult for people to let go of that to believe only in Christ. Please pray that more people will come and that more will be saved from this Bible study.

I was soul winning a few weeks ago and met a man named Shimu. I asked him if he knew for sure if he was going to Heaven someday. He told me, “In Nigeria, you cannot be sure. We have to do some dishonest things sometimes just to survive, so we cannot be sure of Heaven.” I had the privilege to talk with him for about an hour, showing him how it is apart from our works that we are saved. Praise the Lord that he decided to trust Christ to forgive him instead of trusting his works.

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
