We are Levi and Chelsea Wilson, BBFI church-planting missionaries to 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.
We are currently on deputation working toward landing in South Sudan at the end of 2021.
Our heart is to plant churches in South Sudan, seeing the South Sudanese people saved, discipled, and serving the Lord. The Lord has blessed the faithful work of veteran missionaries Ron and Christine Enoch, and has used them greatly to establish the Bible Baptist Church in Juba, with several active ministries, such as a feeding center, a well, and a secondary school. We are privileged to build on this foundation as we begin our ministry there.
Our first priority upon arriving on the field will be to begin language studies with the goal of preaching and teaching in Juba Arabic. Throughout our first term we will help lead the ministries of Bible Baptist Church. As the Gospel is being shared and as we see people saved, we will disciple new believers, training them to actively serve the Lord. We are so excited to see what the Lord will do in and through the South Sudanese people!
