NEW WEDNESDAY PM CLASS
Join a New Fall Wednesday PM Bible Class which begins September 7th – Teacher: Ken Darnell Spiritual Giftedness (A 12-lesson study) This is a practical study about discovering your personal identity in Christ and empowering the church. All Christians are saved by the blood of Jesus, but all Christians are not the same. Each person has spiritual DNA (Divine Natural Ability) which makes them unique not only in personality, but also in his or her service to the Lord. What might provide joy to one may not have the same effect on another. We all bring something to the table. In this study you will be able to perform your own spiritual DNA Test to discover how to find the peace, joy, and happiness that God wants in your life. Which one of the ten ministerial passions are yours? We will discuss and evaluate these spiritual abilities and talents and together unleash what God has in store.
Topic for Wednesday PM Bible Class: (September 7th) The Personal Benefits of Spiritual Giftedness Teacher: Ken Darnell

Like the Apostle Paul and his love for the Thessalonian Christians (1 Thessalonians 1:2) We give thanks to God always for all Christians, constantly mentioning them in our prayers. We are aware that many Christians in Nigeria need prayers and aid with their health. Our brother Sylvester shares how they are dealing with health concerns there. Pray for them and know we are helping them too. For the elders, Ken D
In the past few months I have been swallowed up in efforts to help with the management of the health of others around here. The season has really been bad for health with so many sick and dying. The inflation, economic hardships further made worse by insecurities all have combined to make matters worse for rural folks.
In Ugbogbo church, we have a First Aid Box we are now trying to stock up with basic medicaments and over the counter drugs for helping especially in emergencies with women and children. But in the bad weather we have seen recently, we have had so many who have been hospitalized. Two have had major surgeries. We are still praying fervently for John Dania till this day! I have been blessed with the trust and generosity of wonderful Christian Donors who have made funds available for me to use in these various forms of benevolence works. And that helps to lift up the name of Christ in the community.
A very distressing aspect of our society is the fact that we don’t have any form of insurance for health. That’s why if you are sick, you are on your own. If you don’t have the funds and the native herbs fail to provide relief, then you lose hope But the privilege I have to receive and use benevolence funds from Christians and congregations have been making a huge difference in this direction. In this quarter, I have used more than triple of the funds for benevolence. I have used my work funds and I have used my personal support for health cases because there have been so many.
I received an unexpected surprise of funds from the church in Kingsland, Texas, which they sent for my personal health reasons and for me to use some for my vacation if any is left over. I have used up all of that, plus some of my vacation funds.
In all, I am so thankful to see many get relief and glorify God for His grace and provisions through you all- using me as a channel
