Bryon Callaway came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior in November of 1999. Less than one year after his salvation God opened a door for him to go on a mission trip to the country of El Salvador. It was on this trip that God gave him a passion for God's Word, people, and the mission. Between 2000 and 2009 he was able to go on trips to various countries in Central America. These trips only strengthened and confirmed what God was doing in his life.
Bryon was content with being a children's minister, but knew that the call on his life as a foreign missionary had never left. He still believed that he would one day be sent out as a missionary to Central America, but that all changed through the testimony of 2 missionaries. In 2011, at First Bible Baptist's missions conference, Bobby Bonner and John Sarra presented the work and great need for workers in Zambia, Africa. It was here that God redirected his heart. Since the conference he's been able to visit Zambia in 2012, 2013, and 2014. During this period of time, God has confirmed that this is where He wants him and his family to minister.
Bryon met his wife, Tammy, at First Bible Baptist Church in 1999. They have four children, Tonya, Loren, Aubrey, and Titus. Tammy has been a nurse for many years, and she is excited to see how God is going to use her in Zambia to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the people. Bryon is looking forward in leading his family to where God would have them to be. Their desire is to not only see people accept Christ as their personal Savior, but that they would also be conformed to the very image of Christ. The Callaway family has claimed Ephesians 3:20 "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us..." It is God who is able; it is us who must be willing.
