We are Levi and Chelsea Wilson, BBFI church-planting missionaries in South Sudan, the newest country in the world! We are sent out of Cherry Street Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, led by Pastor Dennis Jennings.
Our heart is to plant churches in South Sudan, seeing the South Sudanese people saved, discipled, and serving the Lord. Currently, we are training up new believers at Bible Baptist Church in Juba South Sudan. We are seeing many South Sudanese saved, discipled, and baptized.
The Lord greatly used retired missionaries Ron and Christine Enoch to establish the Bible Baptist Church in Juba. Along with the church, they began a feeding center, secondary school, and a well. We are privileged to be a part of these vibrant and growing ministries. We are excited to see how God will grow these ministries and to be a part of planting new churches in Juba and surrounding areas. Praise the Lord, we have been able to take on 2 missionaries since we have been here: one from Kenya on deputation to England and one who is ministering close to the South Sudan/Sudan border. It’s not much, but we wanted the church to be involved and have a burden for missions. We have enjoyed discipling students, workers and adults from the church who have accepted Christ as their Savior.
Our language lessons are going on well, and in the meantime we are extremely grateful for the translators God has provided so we can teach and share the word of God on a regular basis. We are seeing souls saved weekly and continue to disciple new believers. We recently had our first group ready for baptism and look forward to the next round of believers ready for this step of obedience. The Lord is doing great things here in South Sudan, and we are blessed to be part of it.
