We are thankful to share an exciting report from four Nigerian preachers we helped sent to Swaziland to help brethren there in efforts to strengthen and share God kingdom. Brother Mike Udam, who we regularly aid, makes the report. Please keep the efforts of the Gospel in Africa in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
ESWATINI MISSION REPORT by Mike Udam july 19, 2018 (pART 2)
On Wednesday 11th, we resumed at the clinic and continued with our evangelism building on the foundation we laid on Monday the 9th. It was during this process that we found ourselves preaching to a preacher of the gospel who came for medical consultation. He was happy with what we did and extended his invitation to us to come and teach in the Tubungu congregation in the evening of Thursday 12th sharing our knowledge on Internet Evangelism.
We kept the appointment and it was great. The congregation appears to be predominantly whites and the preacher revealed that they were the first congregation in Swaziland and tried to be true and adhering to the New Testament Christianity as we practice in Nigeria.
Friday the 13th was a day of surprises and a day of humiliation for us. It was a day we had planned to visit a couple of historic sites to get a better feel of the land and its people. We therefore scheduled visits to a wildlife park and to a cultural village. We however hit a pedestrian and had to take him to the hospital and report ourselves to the police since it was one of us that drove the car. The shock and trauma of the event and the running around the Police Station cancelled the activities lined up for that day. In significant humility, we took the matter to God with serious devotion and God answered us in a way we couldn’t have anticipated. Something significant happened.
The incident put us in the hands of the assistant head of the traffic section of the Police Force who introduced himself as an assistant pastor that had recently been nursing a desire to start his own church. He asked us if we know T.B Joshua and Apostle Suleiman and we started sharing the good news with him. His response was surprisingly humble and he quietly followed the study and expressed desire to come to Nigeria. The elder that was with us representing the Matsapha church promised to do a follow-up seeing that this Inspector of Police had already grown tired of the denomination he was leading as an assistant pastor.
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th were full of activities with the Matsapha congregation. We had lectures and interaction on Leadership development, and on improving their perceptual intelligence on ‘Perception.’
The church in Matsapha was grateful and promise to work with us in evangelizing Swaziland.
