Our Missionaries

Christina Massey

Christina says, “I grew up in a Christian home and was saved at a young age. However, it wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned who God is and what having a relationship with Him means. Since that discovery, I have felt an urgency for the rest of the world to have a relationship with God. I don’t want to see people just get “saved,” I want them to know Jesus and discover how they can be part of His plan.”

Christina has been a member of Hitts Chapel General Baptist Church in Piggott, Arkansas, for 12 years. Her primary role of creative development, administration, and technical support allowed her the privilege of serving with children’s ministry, youth ministry, and graphic design ministry. She enjoys being a part of helping people to know, love, and follow God.

Christina says, “God has spoken to me very clearly over the past few years about being a missionary to Honduras. He is giving me an opportunity to be a part of His work in the country I have come to love through Mission Volunteer Program trips over the past ten years.

“I believe someday we will see the children of Faith Home preaching, teaching, and leading worship in churches across Honduras. They will be the hands feet and heart of God to their county. I want to be a part of their development and the churches they will lead.”

Christina serves as the administrator of Faith Home near San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Kris and Nicole Yeomans

Kris and Nicole Yeomans have been approved to serve as General Baptist Missionaries and have been appointed to West Africa for a four-year term.

Kris and Nicole have a particular call to reach the largest unreached group in the world - the Muslim world. Kris has stated that ultimately their desire is to serve General Baptists as, “pioneer missionaries focused on Muslim outreach in other parts of the world, especially West Africa and the ‘10/40 Window’.” The prospects are truly exciting.

Jessey and Brittany Vemula

Jessey Vemula is from southern India. He was born and raised in a Christian family. His father, Rev. Charles Vemula, was in ministry for 30 years and was able to plant 42 churches before his death in 2013.

Soon after Jessey finished his secular education, he joined Berean Baptist Bible College for theological education when he was 15 years old. He was saved in 2001 and called by God to ministry in July 2002.

Jessey states, “When I responded to God’s call, I realized that it was every Christian’s responsibility to share the good news of Jesus Christ with others. I also felt that God has not only put a great burden in my heart to reach the unreached millions in India but also to plant churches in the most difficult and remote areas where no church has existed before. In the future I would like to start a Biblical Institute where future leaders are raised in the sound doctrine.”

Jessey came to the United States to pursue a Doctorate degree in theological education and met his wife, Brittany, in 2011. Brittany was already involved in children’s ministry and was willing to support his calling and join Jessey in his mission. She has a great calling in her life to work with abandoned children and marginalized women in India.

The Vemulas have returned to India with a mission to evangelize the lost, plant churches, work in the orphanage the family has started, and minister among those trapped in the sex trade suffering with HIV/AIDS and leprosy.

Rodney and Teresa Walls

When you follow Jesus, you never know what you will be a part of or what you will see. Being a disciple is many things, but boring isn’t one of them. Check out what God said through the prophet Habakkuk, Look at the nations and watch-- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told (1:5).

Rodney is working with pastors and churches in Honduras. “They do not need someone to tell them how to do everything, but I will have the privilege of working alongside them and serving as their advocate and co-worker in Christ. The focus is on leadership development and church health.”

Teresa (a nurse) is focused on health care related issues. She helps with the children at Faith Home, and is exploring ways to implement ministry through the medical clinic. In the coming months Teresa will seek God’s vision for using the clinic (possibly for nutritional education, prenatal care and education, immunizations and minor health care needs).

You just never know what you will see when you are following Jesus. I Corinthians 2:9 No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.
