Today we will be taking up a special contribution to help those who are suffering because of hurricane Ian. The money will be sent to the “Churches of Christ Disaster Response Team” which already has started to work in connection with the Gulf Coast church of Christ in Fort Meyers, Florida. Please note on your check that it is for this disaster relief, or give cash to one of the elders. Thank you!

Our congregation continues to keep praying for the work in Nigeria. We are always thankful to hear news of good things happening there. Our brother Mike Udam reports on his work the last three months. Praise God and keep him in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D.
REPORT OF WORK FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2022
The third quarter of the year was very eventful all to the glory of God. The church has been growing according to the will of God.
I had 5 speaking appointments this quarter that took me across the country and 9 days in Kenya for mission work. The Lord blessed our work with 10 baptisms during this period. 4 baptisms at Obudu when we organized the Four Field Discipleship program and 6 baptisms during the WBS Great Workshop.
The church at Ukpagada had two of her leaders Patrick Woshor (my interpreter) and Okwo Festus (my Head of Department in my former school), graduate from Darrell Memorial Bible Institute, Obudu (an affiliate of Sunset International Bible Institute, Texas). We are getting very close to having men fill the office of elders and deacons in the near future.
Currently, we have activated the plan for our 3 days Annual Gospel Meeting from November 24th to 26th, 2022. We pray that souls will be won to Christ and his kingdom expand. Also, if the Lord wills, I will be in Rwanda for a week in December to hold leadership training and kick start the process of mission work in Rwanda and South Sudan. I will keep you all posted.
Good News: A few days ago, I got elevated to the position of Vice Principal and posted to a new school in my village just a five-minute drive from my house. I am grateful to God for the elevation. This position will expand my contact with more students to be enrolled into WBS. 75 percent of the students in the school are refugees fleeing the war in South West Cameroun. Keep me in your prayer.
My daughter NT Rose, 17, got admission to read Sociology at the University of Nigeria Nsukka. However, with the lingering strike embarked by the labour unions, she is still at home awaiting when the strike will be called off.
I truly appreciate our partnership. I know when things improve, I will certainly visit the USA to meet with you all face to face. I am also open to zoom meetings if the need arises.
God bless you all. Sincerely yours, Mike Udam
