Andrew & Nelli Wilson

Andrew & Nelli Wilson with Deborah and Joshua:

Lived and worked in Papua new Guinea since 2004. Along with their co-workers, they started an outreach to the North Wahgi people where they were adopted into a local village family and lived in the village amongst those people. While learning the local language and culture they built lasting relationships for the sake of the gospel. They particularly enjoyed the linguistics side of the language learning process. It was a great privilege to be involved in Bible translation and Bible lesson development. The highlight of their time in PNG was teaching the people in their language using foundational teaching from Creation to Christ. It was a thrill to see friends from the village come to faith in Christ. On return to the UK the Wilsons continued to use Foundational teaching to disciple people. They moved to Germany 2016 and are involved in discipleship with local ladies and also refugees within their church fellowship in Germany. They are also part of the Ethnos360 Germany team and are excited to mentors with the Equip360 training program.
