Ryan Whitson

Simply put… I am a sinner saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus alone.

"There are many who preach Christ, but not many who live Christ. My great aim will be to live Christ" R.C. Chapman 1803 - 1902

The next few months we will be spending time in the Pearl of Africa. The hope is to invest into two small villages churches by engaging the pastors and leaders. At the end of our time here, we hope to glean a better understanding of daily life, build on relationships with the locals that we have, build up and strengthen the local church and allow God to have His way in the unfolding of His word.
