For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth.” 3 John 3 (ESV)
We are very thankful this weekend to have Doug & Dianne Wheeler with us to report on the work in Nigeria and Doug’s visit there last spring. This year our congregation helped to support the Nigerian Institute of Arts and Theological Studies (NIATS) in its preacher training. After Doug’s final visit there, they sent a “Send-Off Address” to him. We share part of it with you as our Nigerian brothers also love Doug and us. Continue to pray for the Lord’s people in Nigeria. For the elders, Ken D
“It is with feelings of joy and sorrow that the Board, Staff and Students of NIATS present this brief address to you (Doug), on the occasion of your fare-well visit to the Institute. ‘Profound Joy’ for your great accomplishments for NIATS and “Sorrow” in that we are going to miss your esteemed presence, your craft, wisdom and analytical prowess. No wonder the saying that, “parting is such sweet sorrow”.
NIATS is on course to meet the challenges of the 21st century Bible colleges/theological Institutes, so as to not present itself an ugly figure before its contemporaries. Thus, its curriculum and admission requirements have also been painstakingly reviewed upwards in line with the dynamics of the second millennium Christianity.
Help us to let your brethren know that we love them for the good work they are doing through you as their messenger. Help us to let them know that we have several challenges. Help us to let them know that our vast compound needs fencing for security of life and property.
Help us to let them know that our teachers need extra encouragement to enable them to do their work effectively, help us to let them know that our facilities are old to meet the test of time such as Library facilities for references/research. Help us to let them know that we are praying for them at all times. Help us to let them know that we hope to meet with them if not here, then in Heaven.”
Thank you, farewell and God bless! Elder (Dr) Gideon Nwaaeze, chairman NIATS
