Melissa Aniku Grew up in Southern California and felt a calling for missions. She went to Africa in 2009 and is now a permanent resident. Pastor Vincent is the Assistant Pastor at a Calvary Chapel in Africa. He is the manager of a community ministry, which reaches out to the non-believers, disciple’s new believers and converts, plus helps employ youth while also reaches out to men from the local religion.
Melissa’s ministries are mostly within their compound with homeschooling and management. They financially and spiritually take care of 13 children. She also tends to the daily guests that come to the compound for prayers and discipleship and finds small jobs for those in need. She also does women’s discipleship and sewing classes. This year God is providing for them to start a stadium for outreaches plus a library and community center to teach reading and writing to the adults who are illiterate due to war. This will be the first place of its kind in the area bringing the gospel and unity.
