We received information from our brother Sylvester this last weekend. (December 18-19) in which he relates some news of his upcoming retirement from as the pulpit minister in Igarra, Nigeria, so he can devote his full time to the print ministry and also work more with local benevolence. This last Sunday was also a time to distribute food to local widows. Please continue to keep this all in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
We concluded the production of the tracts with donated funds today. And that is the last work we have funds to do for this year. Tomorrow is going to be a big day for us at church. Because we are going to distribute food for widows and others after church.
The next Sunday, Dec 25, is going to be another big one as well. That is the Sunday for my retirement/Thanksgiving. We are working towards these planned events. Another thing is tomorrow is Birthday for our boy- Daniel Kamil Otono.
Sunday December 18 – Worship was beautiful! We put finishing touches to the plans for Thanksgiving coming up next Sunday. One young man was baptized after worship.
Later in the afternoon we all took off for Auchi. Kamil needed to be with his birth mom and 3 sisters (the eldest sister died two years after their father died. They had arranged for us to eat in a restaurant (rice and chicken).
Yesterday also we gave out sacks of food to widows and others in different categories of need. We had an attendance of 306 of which about 50 were widows. A few came from other congregations and neighbors. The widows received the lion share. Each widow received 3 sacks – One sack of rice, One sack of beans, and one sack containing items such as tomato paste, ground nut oil, salts, soup seasonings, etc., all the ingredients that combine to make soup or stew (except for meat). Everyone else received only sacks of rice. There was pure joy and smiles on the faces of everyone.
We send our wholehearted thanks and appreciations to the Donors for the funds to make this happen.
