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: Our Little Girl Has Arrived!

Caleb Christiansen Prayer Letter: Our Little Girl Has Arrived!Amidst all the changes that we have seen in our world recently, there is one change that has affected our family most. Our baby girl was born! Emma Kristine Christiansen was born on May 11, 2020, at 6 pounds 7 ounces and 19½ inches long. Since then, Emma has been growing like a weed. We have been blessed beyond measure. So far, Emma has been perfectly healthy, and the pediatricians have been very pleased with her progress. She is a very alert baby and loves to look at everything around her. Emily has been recovering well from the delivery and is very happy to no longer be pregnant. We are still learning the ropes of being parents, but God has been very good to us.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, most of our meetings were either canceled or rescheduled to a later date for a couple of months. So unfortunately, we have not been able to have meetings with churches recently. While this is not what we would have chosen for ourselves, we know that this bump in the road did not surprise God. God has continued to provide for us and given us blessings that we wouldn’t have had otherwise. We have had the opportunity to spend some time with our sending church in Winthrop, Maine. We had some extra time to prepare for and adjust to the birth of Emma. God’s people have been kind in giving to us. There have been many who have given us extra love offerings, especially members from the 66First Baptist Church of Hammond. This season has been an excellent lesson in how God will provide, even amid unforeseen circumstances.

Thankfully, we will be heading back on the road within the next couple of weeks for several meetings in the South. We are grateful to be headed back on the road. Please pray for us as we as new parents learn how to travel the country with a newborn. We have a lot to learn.

That all the world may know,

Caleb Christiansen
