Bryson and Anna Grizzle met at SCCOG in 2012. They became best friends and formed an incredible relationship. Bryson enrolled at Holmes Bible College in 2015 and began pursuing a degree in missions. In 2016 Bryson and Anna took their friendship to the next level and began dating. In 2017 Bryson started FULFILL Ministries, began going overseas, and putting missions teams together.
Furthermore, in 2018 Bryson and Anna were becoming quite comfortable on the mission field, not only leading short-term trips, but also knowing that it was time for the next steps in life. Soon they were engaged and began looking into a full-time location to further their ministry on the mission field. However, the more they prayed about it, the more they knew God was calling them to Africa; and so the journey began.
Bryson graduated as valedictorian of his class and served as the Student Body President at Holmes Bible College. He holds a BA in Theology and a BS in Christian Ministries with a concentration on world missions. Anna holds a BS in Christian Ministries with a concentration in World Missions. They both served in their local church in all aspects of ministry: leading worship, outreach, discipleship, social media, youth staff, and administration.
With the rising numbers of Unreached people groups, they, along with their son Rowen, decided it was time to join the front lines of the fight. 42% of the population, which amounts to 3.2 billion people, have never heard the Gospel. 26% of Africa, which is 388,710,000 people, have never heard the Gospel. 8 Countries in Africa are over 95% unreached, and two are 100% unreached.
Kenya is the #1 country in Africa for child sex trafficking. Last year girls ages 10-14 had 20,828 babies, and ages 15-19 had 24,106. 36% of these girls live in extreme poverty which results in selling babies for survival. Babies go for less than $500. This contributes to this never-ending cycle of the child sex trafficking epidemic. Less than 2% of these children make it back home.
Their current focus is to preach the Gospel across Africa while rescuing more girls from early child marriage (legal sex trafficking). The facility they work at currently houses 40 of these children but is capable of much more. They are believing God will soon open the door to allow them to be at full capacity, which is around 400 children.
They have decided this is the road they choose to walk for the rest of their life; Knowing they are walking in the footsteps Jesus has laid before them. They have plans of starting a conference, camp, and school to educate young people on how to get involved and be effective in world missions. They fully believe God has given a call, plan, and vision to reach the nations, fulfill the Great Commission and make unreached people groups a thing of the past.
