Brad Womble, former IMB Missionary to Niger & former Director of Event Coordination for the International Mission Board in Virginia
Brad and his wife Sally served as South Baptist missionaries in Niger, West Africa. In 2002 they attended The Elijah Challenge Training which was held in Niamey, Niger.
“We are now in Richmond, Virginia and I am on staff with the International Mission Board. Sally and I served as trainers for missionaries going to sub Saharan Africa for a one-year term. We found that very rewarding. Now, I am the Director of Event Coordination for the International Mission Board. It is a very challenging and rewarding job to coordinate all the activities of the IMB in the USA.
One of the first things we put into the hands of new missionaries coming to the field in Niger was your book Dancing on the Edge of the Earth, and we tell them of our experiences. You have been a blessing to our team and people in so many ways. Thank you for sharing what God has taught you and equipping the saints. Thank you for permission to print your book for use here at the International Learning Center in Richmond. …We would be so happy for you to be here with us, each cycle, teaching your ministry to each and every missionary going out from the IMB. We have been blessed by your ministry and your kindness.”
“I want to encourage you to continue following Him and taking every opportunity to minister to the lost and the church. You have a very balanced and God centered message for all. The lost need to continue to see the power of Christ thru you. Your brothers need to see the wisdom and power of God available thru faith and trust in Him. He will give you many chances to change hearts of brothers one at a time. Don’t miss the chance to minister one on one with believers as you cross paths in your daily walk. He will also continue to place you before various size groups giving you the chance to change many at a time. Your ministry is so very important to the Kingdom. Don’t grow weary as He has so much for you to accomplish. I am praying this morning that you and your wife will be blessed by knowing His deep pleasure and joy in your faith and obedience. I am praying for His favor to be shown in the deep and heavy blessings of your continued ministry. I am also giving thanks for the way you have blessed my life and how your ministry encourages me.” (2014)

“I wanted to write and let you know, again, how much we appreciated the teaching you brought to [our area]. We have applied much of your teachings to our personal ministry and have seen much fruit in the past couple of months from it. We had 12 student volunteers this past summer and taught them all from your material about using their God-given authority. As a result, several people have indicated decisions for Christ due to healings and miracles.
A university professor from a large Christian college even took your teachings with him and indicated a possibility of including it in his teachings this next year. We’ve also included it in our trainings as we’ve been training hundreds of nationals in how to plant churches. So thank you again for your influence and for your teaching from God’s word.”
