“Go and make disciples of all nations…”

One of the most important values of WestRidge is our mission to the unsaved. It begins in our own community, and spreads throughout the world.

The WestRidge congregation is active in three overseas missions through our finances and our prayers. These missions are located in Africa, and in Guyana and Peru in South America.

 

Fielden and Janet Allison

Africa

Fielden and Janet Allison have been missionaries in Africa since 1972.

For many years they worked on Mt. Elgon in northwest Kenya. Recently they relocated to Swaziland in South Africa. This will be their home base as they work with the local Christian school and travel all over the continent of Africa to conduct marriage retreats and seminars.  Their extensive education, experience, and training have given them the ability and opportunity to teach and train local couples in God’s plan for marriage. Their goal is also to teach the material to local couples who will in turn be able to counsel those in their own cultural locations.

 

Wayne Pruette

Guyana, South America

Wayne Pruette has worked in Guyana, South America, for many years. Though some of his evangelistic efforts are aimed toward the larger, urban areas of Guyana, Wayne usually works in the rural villages and travels inland deep into the jungle to bring the gospel to the native south Americans, known as “Amer-Indians”.

Wayne has planted many congregations all over the country of Guyana and the neighboring country of Suriname. In addition, he oversees two preacher training programs, one in Springlands, Guyana, and the other in Apoera, Suriname. Several times each year Wayne leads ten to twenty people from the U.S. to these two countries on evangelistic campaigns.

family pic 2Chase and Briana served with the WestRidge family for almost four years leading our youth ministry. In 2011 they moved to North Little Rock to work with River City Ministry in a two-year evangelism apprenticeship, which eventually led to their move to Arequipa, Peru, in January 2014, under the guidance of the Cloverdale Church of Christ in Searcy. In Arequipa they minister on a six-family church-planting team which focuses on relational evangelism, house churches, and Christian community. Their ultimate goal is to see southern Peru experience the reconciliation found in Jesus Christ.
