Meet our Staff and their families 
  Operation Nehemiah Missions International Inc., including South Sudanese and American staff  under Operation Nehemiah's leadership  structure,  dedicated to the Lordship of  Yeshua in all areas of life. Those who are directly associated with ONMI, including Founder, Overseer, directors, pastors and their families,  are not a collection of autonomous individuals. These associates consequently bear certain responsibilities and obligations within the organization for the implementation of its vision and goals. 


William and Hannah Levi 
William Levi, a Messianic believer  is  the Founder and Overseer  of Operation Nehemiah Missions since 1993. William was trained academically as a manufacturing engineer from New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ . He obtained his Associate Degree in Computer Science from Essex County College, Newark, NJ campus. He relinquished his engineering career to answer God's calling in His life to establish Operation Nehemiah in Missions in 1993 and The Nile Beth Israel Messianic Congregation in 2000  in the  USA and  South Sudan to alleviate the plight of  Christians in his native country, the Sudan.  Thirteen  years after the establishment of Operation Nehemiah  Missions and the Nile Beth Israel Messianic Congregation,  he was ordained as the overseer of the Mission and the Congregation which he founded. 


William uses his engineering knowledge for the Glory of God  to advance the Great Commission  in the ministry which God has called him to lead. Single handily with help of God and support of ground staff , he is able to engineer and manage people and resources to implement the vision of the ministry in the areas of  church planting, infrastructure & construction, Gospel radio broadcasting engineering, Agriculture , water, medical and entrepreneurial venture.  He never looks back nor regrets leaving  a competitive engineer career which he worked and studied hard for  in order to answer the highest Calling in life and that is  the Great Commission.  
William is also the author of a riveting book called the Bible or the Axe.       


His beloved wife Hannah is a homemaker and a full-time mother of their  six  home-schooled children: Abijah, Nechemyah, Hadassah, Jemimah, Yehudah and  Yerushah. He has  been running Operation Nehemiah full-time since 1996. He He runs the ministry from their home office based in Lanesborough, Massachusetts. Their  major responsibilities involve implementation of the multi-generational vision for their family and the vision  of Operation Nehemiah in rebuilding the New Sudan in the areas of the
The Great Commission, Church planting, strengthening the family, Gospel radio broadcasting, agriculture development, healthcare, and family entrepreneurial initiatives. 

They  conduct mission trips to the South Sudan regularly to monitor the on going work in the field.
Here in the States side, they update people through newsletters, videotapes, website, e-mails, book keeping, telephone calls and overseas correspondences with the field staff. They  are actively involved in educating people here in the USA about the plight of the persecuted church in the South Sudan.

They are available for speaking engagements and interview in churches, schools, radios, and television shows across the United States of America. This is the way they mobilize people to pray for them  and financial resources to sustain the on going mission in the South Sudan.

As the Levite family in Yeshua, they  do have priestly and pastoral calling in their  lives to advance the Great Commission. They believe that the Great Commission is not only out there overseas in places as far as the South Sudan... It is here in their community. It starts with them as individuals; it starts with them  as husband and wife. It starts with them  as parents. they are simultaneously addressing the spiritual issues facing the families and the church breakdown in the South Sudan and as well as here in the USA. They have been praying and desiring to establish family integrated ministry to implement the vision of Operation Nehemiah Missions in their rebuilding effort to restore the church and families of Yeshua in the Sudan and here in the USA.  Here in the  USA besides his speaking engagements across the country where he teaches and shares his testimonies, he and his wife Hannah have opened up  their  home  for  hospitality, serving God's  people in the Berkshires.   He has been  holding  Messianic Bible Fellowship at their  home since 2002, families gather for fellowship every other Friday of the month. They are also part of a local church when they are here in the states.

He is a hands on, multitasking type of young man. At the age of 19, he married his high school sweetheart, Joy, and they now have six children. We  have witnessed tremendous stability and restructuring in Operation Nehemiah's leadership on the ground under his  direction.  


     Rabbi and Rev. Michael Odu Levi, is the eldest brother of William Levi. He Serves as the Pastor/Rabbi of the Nile Beth Israel Messianic Congregation in Borongole, Magwi County, South Sudan. He has been instrumental in shaping the leadership of Operation Nehemiah and the congregation  from that end in the past several of years. While in Ugandan exile, after going through the spiritual trial of his life that almost took his life and broke up his family, Michael finally surrendered his life to Yeshua in obedience to His calling. He is now a changed man, an instrument, wrought for God’s workmanship.
  In 2007, Michael answered God’s call from Ugandan exile in the Kiriadongo Refugee camp to return home to take on a challenge and fill in the spot that many pastors who enjoyed Ugandan comfort zone in exile refused to fill. He went back home to help shape the vision of Operation Nehemiah and like Aaron and Moses, he was needed to help his brother bring the people back from exile to the promise land and build a city on the Hill that can’t be hidden.  
 In 2007, he helped start the Nile Beth Israel Messianic Congregation under a mango tree in Borongole. In 2008, he was officially ordained to lead the church as the senior pastor of the Congregation. He went unto planting another congregation in Ndereto and ordained Pastor Peter Taban to lead that congregation.

He has been with Operation Nehemiah since 2005.  Like the rest of us, James went back home by faith, trusting  God  and ready to face whatever happened. While in the South Sudan, James saw the need for Operation Nehemiah to have a professional driver for the Mobile Clinic and the mobile radio station on wheels.  
  In 2007, he met a Christian young lady named  Lillian whose family  had self -repatriated  back to South Sudan in 2003 after decades of living in Ugandan  refugee camps. They were married in 2009, and went onto having their two daughters.
