Featured Missionary: Jerry and Deborah Wilhite

December 14, 2014 at 6:31 AM

Jerry Wilhite had been in the ministry for thirteen years (planting and pastoring one church for five years and serving as assistant pastor at another church for eight years) before feeling the burden for the foreign mission field. In April of 2000, he surrendered to follow the Lord’s leading to South Africa.

After a year of deputation, he and his family arrived on the field in mid-October 2001. They settled in the city of Polokwane, in the Northern Province (Limpopo) of South Africa. They are presently working to establish churches in the Limpopo Province, and in nearby Zimbabwe. They also manage an ever-growing correspondence Bible study ministry that receives responses from all over southern Africa.
