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. We also contacted Mike Udam in Nigeria that it had also 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
I write to express my deep appreciation of your love and kindness towards me. I am glad that you are willing to support my work and have decided to increase your monthly support for me. My family is grateful for all your support.
I hope to work more hard in the vineyard to please our creator, to whom it is a privilege to be found worthy to serve.
God bless you all and you stay safe in the hands of the Almighty. A picture of my family is here attached. Michael Udam
Last week we also received other news that Mike shared with us on New Year‟s Day that we can rejoice in: We got to the farm today to do harvesting. She walked up to me and said, “Dad I want to be baptized.” She confessed Christ and was immediately baptized for the forgiveness of her sins. Her name is Fortune Udam.
Glory be to God, Mike Udam
