West Bently from Far Reaching Ministries is joining us this weekend.
Wes Bentley, a former Marine, first traveled to Africa in 1996. He delivered basic provisions, and most importantly, hope to predominantly Christian people in South Sudan, who were suffering at the hands of Islamic jihadists.
Prior to Wes’ work in Africa, he served as a missionary in Russia before realizing a greater need in South Sudan. Wes founded Far Reaching Ministries (FRM) in 1998.
To change the course of the nation, he began a Bible school for the South Sudan army chaplains. Since then, ten classes have graduated; over 400 chaplains deployed throughout South Sudan.
Currently, FRM is ministering in seven of the ten most dangerous Muslim countries in the world. In South Sudan, we have had 65 staff members killed.
