“as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.” – 2 Corinthians 1:11
Our congregation has long been involved and supportive in evangelism efforts in the West African nation of Nigeria. Working with World Bible School and local evangelists the gospel is touching lives there. Brother Sylvester Imogoh has been a valuable fellow laborer in the work there. What follows are excerpts from his end of the year report. Remember to help this work by your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
Seminars and Campaigns have been a source of blessing to many of the rural congregations. We had four seminars and seven campaigns this quarter with several hundred at each of the seminars. Lessons are taught and tracts were distributed and many baptisms occurred.
I and my team continue to use WBS as a tool and as part of our campaign efforts. Because American churches and individual Christians are willing to pay the return postage that ensures that everyone can take advantage of the opportunity to learn of Christ, interest continues to increase. With the forms that the Highland Lakes church in Kingsland Texas helped us produce, we are able to recruit more names for Bible studies from schools and villages.
We are right now in the process of completing the printing of my latest 25 tracts. Some of these tracts would be part of the 280,000 tracts I am producing for the Great Workshop in Abak 2016. For the end of Year Widows Relief effort we have purchased and distributed food stuffs to widows on our list, bringing much needed relief to many rural widows at this time of year. We also presented 15 grinding mills to help attain a self-sustenance and joy to many homes and villages.
Nigeria has been facing more and more troubles both economically and socially. In November my wife Sandra narrowly escaped death from an attack by robbers on the bank and police department in Igarra. A few weeks later, burglars broke into our house and stole some money. We need your prayers for safety and security.
In good news, my son Alfred is now in school at University. I thank all who sent some help. There are many small struggling congregations. We seek ways to help them grow or to stay afloat. It is appreciated by many. Sylvester
