What Others Say

Neal and Danette Childs are not only phenomenal missionaries, but also incredible friends. We are grateful to partner with them in the nations for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Sometimes when we think things are going rough or seemingly too difficult, we think about the Childs who are like the MacGyver(s) of missions. If there is a way to do the impossible, they seem to find a way to do it! Beyond their ingenuity and resourcefulness, their character and perseverance for the Lord’s purposes is truly humbling! We are excited to work with them in Niger and in other developing nations.

Neal and Danette’s faithfulness to over 20 years of reaching the unreached in Niger and now in other nations speaks to the call to make disciples of all nations. Their ministry has personally been a catalyst to empower my ministry of raising-up the church of my city to reach the unreached, which has infused passion and calling to many churches. I’ve personally witnessed the children, families, cities and regions that are being transformed through the church-planting movements that they have birthed. These movements are bringing lasting change and eternal transformation in one of the spiritually darkest places on earth.

Neal and Danette are some of the finest people you will meet. They have a desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached and taught through out the globe. Not only are they great people that love their family but they also love their church families. They are truly making an impact in Niger and the Kingdom of God.

My good friends, Neal & Danette Childs, are two of the most passionate, faith-filled ministers you will meet, and their abundant fruit in Niger speaks for itself. In my visits to their village churches and Bible schools, I see hope in the faces of children, pastors, and parents… hope that only a living & powerful gospel at work in a community can bring. Their teachings & leadership have inspired lasting change. I challenge you to support them regularly with your prayers and your financial support, and follow Danette’s Diary from the Desert for amazing stories!

RUN International is one of the most exceptional ministries that we have ever seen. Neal and Danette Childs are passionate, genuine, and focused on transforming lives. Their love for the people of Niger is evident in everything they do. With discipleship and raising up local leaders being the core of their ministry, the impact they are having in Niger will continue to last for generations to come. We have experienced first hand the impact these two are having on the nation. Anyone who partners with the Childs can know that they, too, are having a hand in changing the world.

Neal and Danette Childs are missionaries reaching the lost in the Country of Niger. My church, Victory Christian Center, and myself have supported their ministry since they moved to Niger in 1998. Their ministry is the best soil ever to seed into. I’m a farmer who knows the value of sowing and reaping. It is my absolute privilege to sow into Reaching Unreached Nations – RUN. Neal and Danette are believers that walk in complete integrity and have a true heart to see the lost saved and disciples made of the new believers.

I became acquainted with Neal and Danette Childs at the first church I pastored. One of the first things I did at the church I currently pastor was to introduce them to Neal and Danette, and now the congregation eagerly looks forward to hearing them every time they come. Their messages and testimonies have without fail been timely, rich, and challenging. They are truly an outstanding missionary family doing extraordinary work in Niger. I had the privilege of traveling with a team to work alongside them a few years ago, and became even more convinced that this ministry is excellent ground for us to sow into. Very, very happy to be partnering with them and I cannot recommend them highly enough!
