5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:5-7 (ESV)

We are blessed to share our love for the brethren of Nigeria and a love for God with many of our fellow laborers in the Lord who labor there. What follows is part of a letter that Doug Wheeler mentioned in the bulletin two weeks ago, that he received from one of our Nigerian brethren, Godwin I. who preaches in Nigeria. Notice his positive, thankful attitude in spite of the problems that surround the people of Nigeria. Please keep all the brethren in Nigeria and their trials in your thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D

Dear Brothers,

I greet you with the love of the Lord. I hope that all is well with you, and this letter finds you and your families in sound health.

From what I heard, it was very sad and unfortunate what happen to the people of Haiti during the storms. May God bless the congregations for their help to them.

I am doing my best to teach and preach the word of God here. Recently after staying a long time without a convert, the Lord added a soul to his kingdom. I baptized a young woman of 27 years into the Lord. This convert came as a result of series of lesson I taught, with the title “Why we believe what we believe. She was a member of Assemblies of God church. To God be the praise! I also enrolled 11 people to WBS as students.

Thank God for the November Presidential election in America which was peaceful, I pray God to continue to bless America Amen.

The economic recession in Nigeria is now terrible, immorality and theft is on the increase. When people go to worship on Sunday, thieves break into their houses, eat any food that they see, and steal their properties. A sister in the congregation where I am preaching was affected and she is a widow, one of those you have helped. I have visited her with my wife to encourage and pray for her.

These thieves, for some time now, because of hunger, people now go to farms that are not their own to harvest cassava to eat. What is happening is sad. May God have mercy!

Extend my sincere regards to your families and the saints there. I am preaching the Word.

I remain, Yours in the Love of God, Godwin I.
