Mike and Nikki Howell
Our God Story
Mike made a commitment to Christ when he was growing up in Congo with his parents who were serving as missionaries. He responded to God’s calling to overseas ministry by attending Toccoa Falls College and studying Cross-Cultural Studies.
Nikki grew up in a Christian home and became a believer at a young age. She felt called to missions as a child and then renewed this calling during university while involved with campus ministry. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 is a passage that encourages Mike and Nikki to be ambassadors of Christ to the lost.
Mike and Nikki’s calling to missions was affirmed during a vision trip to Senegal. They will begin a two-year apprenticeship in January 2021.
“We want to glorify God by bringing access to Jesus for the people of Senegal by helping to mobilize a reproducing church-planting movement amongst the Fulani and Wolof.”
“We are currently raising support for our 2-year apprenticeship. When we arrive in Senegal in January 2021 we will be in language and culture study. We will also be completing a mentorship program and gaining experience in several ministry areas to discern our specific giftings and callings for future work in Senegal.”
Pray for our preparation to enter the mission field, including support raising and leaving family and friends in Canada. Pray also for our family’s transition to living overseas and continuing to raise our two young sons in a God-honouring way.
Pray for the believers among the Wolof and Fulani to be filled with the Holy Spirit as they boldly live out their faith and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Pray also that God would raise up Christ-like leaders in these new churches.
