Dearly Beloved,

2022 CHRISTIAN FAMILY RETREAT

My family participated in the 2022 Christian Family Retreat in Port Harcourt between the 14th and 19th of this month.

I got back to Ogoja today after driving 450km and taught Bible study before getting to my house. The retreat affords participants to have quality time with the family, pray with other families, learn parenting skills and work on our bonding skills with our wives. It started 7 years ago and its main aim is to build stronger ties within the family and amongst families.

On Sunday, all the 12 families (58 persons) worshipped at the church meeting at Rumokwuta where I was privileged to serve as the Bible class teacher. My lesson was on THE COST OF BEING A CHRISTIAN. We were refreshed physically and spiritually.

Now I am set for serious work. I shall be speaking to youths this Friday in Calabar, my state capital on Internet Evangelism. On the 30th of April, I shall be speaking to Adults in a lectureship on 1Cor 15:58 at the church meeting in my village Adagom. For 4 days between 3rd and 7th May, I shall be leading my evangelism team to a town called Bebi near the famous Obudu Cattle ranch for a church planting exercise.

Then by 12th of the same May, Lord willing, I shall be speaking at another town called Mbok in their annual lectureship on a topic CHRISTIAN AND CULTURE, KNOWING THE BOUNDARIES.

Between 27th and 30th May, we are planning a mega evangelism hoping to lead us in planting a congregation where I go to preach every Monday. We make the plans and await the approval from the almighty.

Thank you for the huge support that you blessed me. It has helped me meet up with all my numerous engagements. Keep me in your prayers for good health, and safety at all times. Just this evening, one very strong and vibrant brother died in a ghastly bike and tricycle accident in Taraba state. He will be greatly missed for his zeal and love of the work of the Lord all over the northern states of Nigeria.

God bless you.
