NEW CONGREGATION IN NIGERIA

Each year after the elders approve a new budget, we contact all our fellow workers in the mission field to tell them that we are continuing supporting them and of any changes in their support. For example we told Brother Sylvester Imogoh in Nigeria that it had been our pleasure to be his partner in this great work for our Lord for many years and were happy to inform him that we planned to continue working with him in 2022. We also were aware that costs are rising in Nigeria and so we had decided to increase our support to him in next year’s budget. This was his response. Keep all our fellow workers in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
This letter from you is such WONDERFUL NEWS that it kept Sandra and I from sleeping for several hours last night.
First, I want to thank you so sincerely for the kindness in your hearts to have given me such great support for many years now. I don’t know what we could do, or how we could be coping without your support. I am sure that God in His providence knew that I would need you to stand behind my work in Nigeria in such a strong way, and so He planned and made sure we got together. [Otherwise, I do not know any other explanation]
This is not the first time you have given raises in your support of my work. And you have always done so from thoughtful considerations, and not because I am so good in asking you. For this, I am humbled and most thankful. [I can’t ask for more]
The situation in Nigeria at this time is so frustrating. The economic and social conditions are simply horrible to say the least. So I feel so blessed to have brethren over there who are thinking about my condition here. May God alone take all the glory for everything we are able to do in His name and in His vineyard here on earth. I want you to know that so many other Christians and non-Christians are benefiting from these funds by way of benevolences. Right now, it has become a culture that I have to have more in my pockets every Sunday because of the sight of hungry and sick members
The bore hole water you provided for me and for my family years ago is still serving the community around me. And this is bringing much glory to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
I know that there is no way I can thank you enough for the kindness you have been showing to me by way of financial support. And I have resolved to spend all my energy and intellect to continue in efforts to promote the gospel of Christ. [That is my best way of expressing my gratitude for undeserved favors I am getting from you all].
And I ask that you all continue in prayers for me and for my family, for safety and security as we labor in these trying times.
My sincere appreciation to all the saints, Sylvester Imogoh
