Taking the Transforming Power of Christ to the People of Sierra Leone

Pastor Scott & Robin Wilson

The Wilson’s Journey — Christ for Sierra Leone’s Beginnings
Pastor Scott & wife Robin left Iowa and arrived in Bo, Sierra Leone in late July 2015 to serve as missionaries in Sierra Leone, West Africa.  Thus, Christ for Sierra Leone began by serving a small group of village churches whose pastor’s were excited and eager for training and spiritual encouragement.
 
Word of Christ for Sierra Leone spread to neighboring villages and it was not uncommon for people from remote villages to travel to the Wilson’s requesting them to come to their village also.  Traveling to the villages can be difficult — muddy roads or just a beaten down path….some are a several hour walk in by foot alone.  
 
If a Christian church is already in place, partnering for training and encouragement is established.  If there are no Christians in the village, the Gospel is shared at day-long “seminars” and over time, a new church is planted.  Praise God for his abundant blessing.  To date, over 100 villages have sought out Christ for Sierra Leone!  Along with the growth in believers, the growth of the Christ for Sierra Leone team also occurred. 
 
TODAY, a group of 5 native men to Sierra Leone lead the effort, headed by Joseph Bangura, acting Director.  
 
The Wilson’s Today:  In 2017, Robin was diagnosed with breast cancer while stateside for a short visit.  Although Robin successfully completed her treatments, today the couple resides in Rocklin, California as doctors have not released Robin to travel to Sierra Leone.  Healthcare and sanitary conditions are minimal in Sierra Leone and travel for her is not advised at this time.  The couple hopes to travel soon to Sierra Leone for a short-term trip; however, they still manage and lead the ministry from the United States.  
 
The WIlson’s History:  Scott Wilson graduated from the Dallas Theological Seminary and served as Pastor at Clear Lake Clear Lake Christian Church from 2007 – 2015. Robin was an office manager within a dental practice before becoming a full-time pastor’s wife and Biblical counselor.  Following a short-term missions trip to Sierra Leone, the couple began to feel the call to Sierra Leone and responded in 2015.
 
Pray the hearts of the people will be open and they will know Christ and live in His love and power.
 
Baptisms 16 in Nov 2015
 
At a service in Karlau, a young man asked to be baptized, 15 others asked to join him.  Afterward, Pastor Scott told them they were no longer a group just gathering…They are now a church!  Praise the Lord!  Pray for the new, young church in Karlau.
