  • Terry & Cheryl Riddick

    Africa | Cameroon


    AVAILABLE IN SECTION 5: 

    March 20-March 26

    In August 1982 the Terry Riddick family arrived in Cameroon working with an oil company. While they worked for the oil company, God allowed them to start the first United Pentecostal Church in Buea, Cameroon. In 1986 the Riddicks returned to the United States and were appointed as full-time missionaries. Since then the Riddicks have been active in ministerial training, church planting, evangelism, and building projects. Cameroon is a bi-lingual country with both English and French being spoken as official languages. Even though this causes some difficulty, the Riddicks operate both portable Bible schools and a full-time Bible college taught in both French and English. The first regional missionary sent from the West Africa Sub-region is a graduate of the Cameroon Bible College and is now serving in the country of Equatorial Guinea.

In the duration of their term, they pioneered two new churches, established 3 preaching points in nearby villages, and there are now 8 new churches in the northern district.

They are currently the supervising missionaries and Brad is the General Director of one of the UPC’s most successful overseas Bible college training programs. With a student body enrollment of over 600 and thirty-two schools established throughout the country, the Bible college has become the heart of the UPC of Guatemala and has added great strength, stability, and vision to the work.

    David and Alice Kline arrived in Africa in November 1994 as associates in missions under the supervision of Melvin Thacker. He taught in the Bible schools in Zambia and Zimbabwe and evangelized in different churches every weekend. Over 100 people were filled with the Holy Ghost in their weekend services. In October 1995 the Klines received their missionary appointment to Zambia and Zimbabwe. With doors seemingly opening in Zimbabwe for resident missionaries, they arrived on the field in early 1997. They lived in Harare and were involved in training and evangelism. In June 1999 the Klines moved to Lesotho to help develop the work. The Lord has prospered the Klines’ ministry in Lesotho. Their witness has led to entire congregations being baptized in Jesus’ name.



  • Kirby & Mary Parker

    Europe | Middle East | Malta | North Africa


    AVAILABLE IN SECTION 5:

    November 6-November 12

    Kirby and Mary Parker were pastoring in Gridley, California, when through prayer they received their call to Malta. They were appointed as UPCI missionaries to Malta during the 2000 General Conference and arrived on the field with their daughter, Rebecca, in May 2002. The Parkers have stared one church in Malta, conduct home fellowships in key localities, study the Maltese language, and make regular contacts on the neighboring island of Gozo. He states 'We are praying for a Holy Ghost revival in Jesus' Name for the Maltese, Chinese, Filipino, Bulgarian and American nationals who presently attend our church. The Parker's appointment was expanded in 2006 to include the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. This is in keeping with their long-term vision and goal of using Malta as a base of outreach into North Africa (nearly ninety million souls). The Parkers have made ten evangelistic trips to Morocco, where one UPCI church exists in this nation of over thirty million souls. Libya has been selected as a Target Nation. The Parkers have made one trip to this country, where they were able to witness to Libyan and other nationalities.
