Charles Wesco Family Benefit Fund

On Tuesday, October 30, 2018 missionary Charles Wesco was killed in Camaroon, Africa where his family had just arrived as missionaries 2 weeks prior. 

He is survived by his wife Stephanie and their 8 children. 

Stephanie Wesco posted this on Tuesday morning - 

"I'm sharing what is worse than a nightmare. My precious husband was shot in the head on our way to town today. He is fighting for his life. Please pray."
Then posted this update a few hours later - 

"My Precious husband, Charles, is now with the Savior he adored and faithfully served for many years. His life focus was seeking to cause others to love Jesus and serve him. My prayer is that somehow someway Jesus will be glorified through my Precious Charles' death and that God will not let his death have been in vain. He is receiving the Martyrs crown from his Lord. My heart is broken. I want to wake up from a horrific nightmare. Please pray for us."

This fund will go to aid the family in getting out of Africa, funeral expenses, living expenses, etc. Every little bit will help. The family sold all of their possessions here in the states to go to Africa and they will have many needs when they return.

Charles Wesco's brother, Pastor Timothy Wesco, is the pastor at Calvary Baptist Church and asks that if you would prefer to write a check, please make checks payable to and send checks to:

First Light Baptist Mission
3030 Witzel Avenue
OshKosh, WI 54904
