Pastor Aniefiok Udo

Aniefiok's Story

Aniefiok Ekanem Udo was born March 28, 1959, Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. As a boy he was raised on a poultry farm and received his primary education from public schools. In 1978, he received a Nigerian National Teachers Certificate.

He made the decision in 1981 to came to the U.S. with big dreams to make big money to study plant and animal science at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton Ga. A year later, Aniefiok transferred to Arkansas State University in Jonesboro to major in business finance. While attending Arkansas State he met many of the future board members of Africa Outreach. He was also actively involved with Campus Crusade for Christ and attended Central Baptist Church. After obtaining a B.S. in finance in the summer of 1984 Mr. Udo enrolled at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida. In 1985 he graduated Embry Riddle with a MBA in Aviation. In 1986 enrolled in Florida Beacon Bible College to further his education in biblical studies. His experience on a foreign mission to Guatemala inspired him to return to Nigeria and reach his own people with the gospel. In 1987 Mr. Udo left the U.S. to return to Nigeria to teach at the Believers Bible School in Ikot Ekpene.

In 1988 he married his first wife, Grace, and a year later in the process of giving birth she and a baby girl died. Because of this tragedy Mr. Udo went back to the U.S. to grieve and evaluate his future. He enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas TX and during his time there, he met his current wife, Uduak "Judy"¯(also from Nigeria) who was a student at Texas Women's University studying computer science. Irnonically, she was also from Nigeria, not 30 miles from where Udo grew up. After their marriage in August 1992 she chose to pursue a nursing degree in order to help provide much needed healthcare to their local village. In July 1993 their first born son, Stephen arrived.

In May 1995 he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a T.H.M. (Masters of Theology) and their second son, Samuel was born.

In 1997 Uduak obtained her B.S. N. in Nursing and was board certified. Upon her graduation the family returned to Nigeria in November 1997, where they began to minister to the local community. In May 1998, their third son, James was born.

On December 31, 2004, Aniefiok resigned his positions with Believer's Assembly to begin his dream for establishing Africa Outreach, Inc. God has directed him through this new work to more effectively meet the spiritual and physical needs of the people in Nigeria and the surrounding countries. The ministry under Udo's leadership has purchased 15 acres and have completed the construction of a Pastor's Resource Center that also is the home for Fellowship Bible Church Nigeria. Future plans include a medical clinic and a training facility to teach people vocational skills and how to provide food for their family. Welding, Carpentry, automobile mechanics, and computers are among the vocational skills he envisions offering.

There is a great need for books in order to train the pastors and help them as they grow new churches. Africa Outreach Inc has obtained 501-C3 status and all gifts made to the organization are tax deductible.
