UPCOMING EVENTS
The time for our holiday projects is quickly approaching!
As is our custom, we collect cookies to be sent to Cherokee Home for Children for their holiday party. The Ladies Class members plan on packing up the cookies on Wednesday, November 28th, which is the last class of 2018. The cookie contribution from our members needs to be in the Fellowship Room by Sunday, November 25th. They can either be home-made cookies or store-bought ones.
Another project is our collection of stuffed animals for the Care Van. We need to have those before our Holiday Party, on Sunday, December 2nd. Remember, those stuffed dolls and/or animals should not have loose parts that can easily come off!

It is a real blessing to hear examples of the Gospel at work. It’s also exciting when we can see it at work in a place that we have had a long association with, Nigeria. It’s such a great thing when we know some of the people involved in it, like Monday John Akpakpan. Continue to keep this great work in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
Monday John Akpakpan Reports 345 Baptisms in Nigeria
In his report for the months of July, August, and September, Monday John Akpakpan from the Akwa Ibom State of Nigeria, reported that 345 baptisms have taken place in his area during those three months. He lists twenty different locations in which these baptisms have taken place. Akpakpan is a follow-up coordinator for World Bible School in that area.
4-zGN11-18-4BThe largest number was reported from the Nigerian Christian Bible College Lectureship where 122 men and women were baptized. At the Annual Lectureship at the C. A. O. Essien Memorial Bible School a total of sixty-five men and women were baptized. The World Bible School Seminar at Odukpani Township Church of Christ saw twenty-one baptisms on the day of the seminar but additional baptisms just before and just after the seminar brought the total to sixty-five. At three prisons, a total of forty souls were added to the church during the three month period.
The other baptisms on the list were generally four or five at a particular church or through a particular minister working in the area.

Akpakpan also mentioned that there were youth seminars on different Sundays of the month at various locations and a women’s lectureship is held on the third Saturday of the month at different places.

Certainly good news that Monday John Akpakpan and others in the area are having such good success in bringing people to Christ.
