EASTERN EUROPEAN MISSIONS

eem_mini_banner_horizontalOn Sunday, September 16th, we will have the opportunity again to show our evangelistic spirit by contributing to the mission work in Eastern Europe. The opportunities and needs in that part of the world are great.  Bibles and other religious books that pertain to Christian values are being asked for in public schools to help, especially, young people to cope with life’s problems.  Keep in your prayers these areas of the world that need the message of the cross so very much. Our generous support is always appreciated. . . .AND. . . . “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7b).

BEAUTIFUL FOOTNOTES

We are blessed to support the work of the gospel in the African nation of Nigeria and to especially work with local brethren like Sylvester Imogoh who helps coordinate the efforts of the World Bible School and Tract programs there. This is from his last quarterly report. Please keep him and the church in your prayers for their safety and encouragement. For the elders, Ken D

GOSPEL NEWSLETTER – APRIL – JUNE 2018

Ugbogbo:

We have been very busy in this quarter with more and more work. God has blessed us with 6 new converts who obeyed the gospel in water baptism. These converts were made from our various outreach efforts- The Ugbogbo Community Outreach program, visitors at church services, and from our Food and Benevolence Programs. Every Sunday, we have more visitors at church.

The Adult Education Program is continuing with the goal of teaching people English Language using the Bible as one of the course contents. Brother Ajiboye is doing a good job of handling that program.

Our Monthly Evangelism Program has now incorporated The Youths’ Tracts’ Distribution. From these various outreach programs, more and more prospects are visiting the church every Sunday for A M worship services.

World Bible School

 Receiving, Sorting, Distribution and Mailing of lessons from the US are the basic work that we do every week. I have a team of 5 workers who help me in this work.

Follow-Up Activities were in villages and schools such as- Uneme-Nekhua, Successs School Igarra, and the Villages of Ekpe, Ekpedo, Makeke and Ososo. The challenge we face in most cases is that many of the students are dependent children who [sadly] would not have their parents’ permission to obey the gospel. But it is good they are learning the word of God in their hearts.

Internet Students’ Follow-Up. Doug Wheeler is now working with the WBS & WEI team in the follow-up process for Internet students. So from time to time, he releases names of Nigerians in need of contact. In this quarter, I personally received and initiated the follow-up process for 7 students in different parts of Nigeria. One good thing is that I usually complete the process by mailing tracts and books to them locally. I think this is a good complement to their studies via the internet. Postal students need that too. Therefore, any WBS or WEI Teachers who needs me to send books and tracts to their students in Nigeria should contact me or contact Doug Wheeler. Simply provide the names and addresses of such students and we will take care of the rest from there.
