Nigeria Report – Mike Udam

Please keep our hard working brethren in Nigeria in your prayer. This report is from brother Mike Udam. For the elders, Ken D

Dear Elders,
WORK AMIDST COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
I am delighted to share with you the little the Lord used me to do in his vineyard in this second quarter of April/May June 2020.
It is no longer news that the world is currently being ravaged by the novel corona virus Covid-19. I am thankful that he has protected us from the pandemic and kept us safe even as we practice the WHO protocol.
I thank you for your support that has really helped me survive this pandemic as we were literally shut down in the entire country.
I also want to thank you for the special Covid-19 relief package you sent to cushion the effect of the lockdown on brethren around here. We are indeed grateful.
During this period, we were blessed with 5 baptisms amongst which were two pastors of denominational churches.
A new congregation was started for the pastors with some of our brethren around there joining in fellowship. I teach Bible study there every Friday. The baby church has a membership strength of 35 with adults over 25 on Sunday worship service.
We are trusting God that Covid-19 will recede, and we will resume our aggressive evangelism. We were able to construct a baptistery in my congregation to ease the process of baptism especially that we have a functional borehole in the church premises.
For the next quarter, Lord willing, there are two Leadership seminars that I shall be conducting in Benue and Taraba state in North central Nigeria.
Beginning from July 4th, my team Africa Evangelism Mission shall start Virtual Lectureship streaming live across the continent of Africa via Nzuko/Zoom applications. The brethren in Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe are our principal target. Topics have been assigned to us all. This is our response to the emergence of Covid-19. We are adjusting to the New normal. Trial sessions are ongoing. Keep us in your prayers.
I am equally starting 20 minutes Bible classes live on my Facebook page Mike Udam from the 1st of July 2020.
One thing I have leant from this pandemic to always put the phrase LORD WILLING in all my plans.
My family is doing well and to the glory of God, I shall be 7 years at Ukpagada on the 5th of July 2020. Keep me and my family in your prayers.
My members are farmers, if you have a small support for them to buy fertilizers and herbicide for their farms, it will be well appreciated. God bless you.
