On Sunday February 25, I and my family worshipped at Ikot Akpan Eyo
were I preached the sermon. It was so refreshing as many asked
questions about the New Testament church and Bible answers was given.
The Ukanafun WBS Evangelism Team and the students of the Nigerian
Christian College of Evangelism (NCCE) Ukanafun did so well in the
preaching of Christ using different methods which includes :
* Door to door Evangelism
* Open air evangelism
* Tract distributions
* WBS enrollments
* WBS students follow up
* WBS /Bible Seminars
* Food/Clothing for Needy distribution
* Visitations etc.
Pray for more of His grace and strength on us all to do more for
Christ and His church.
Pray for our newly planted congregations as day by day souls are added
to Christ for them to grow and become mature in the faith.
Pray for our Free Preacher’s training school the “Nigerian Christian
College of Evangelism (NCCE) Ukanafun who has laboured for 3 years now
training men for the kingdom, our students serves in our newly planted
congregations and most of our denominational pastors convert are
trained to know the proper way to divide the Word of Truth. NCCE is
purely self sponsored.
Pray for the following challenges :
We need Mega Phones used with battery to help our team and the newly
planted congregations in the rural areas carry out her out door
Pray for mobility for my co laborers serving in the newly planted
congregations to help with their Evangelism, visitations and follow up
We plan to hold a WBS Seminar At Ikot Osute Village this March to
strengthen the newly fast growing congregation, pray for success.
With the advent of Seven (7) newly planted congregations between
2013-2017 through our efforts, I plan to have the following :
* Preachers support fund
* Land purchase /church building fund.
My vision here is as God blessed our efforts day by day and churches
are planted through our efforts, we need finances to support preachers
who labour to keep the Souls as I can not do the work alone and my
family size is growing, my children school fees and other things, also
when churches start and grow, the need to be in her permanent land and
building become necessary as worshipping in someone’s house for too
long does not encourage many who do not understand the church to come
in and it doesn’t give the church Independence if the owner of the
house who housed the church is not acting the way of the Lord etc.
So my idea here is if these Preachers support and Land purchase
/church building fund has God’s approval, then we can manage whatever
little we had as His grace reaches us to take care of this needs as I
can’t stop preaching the Gospel, baptizing those who obeyed and can’t
also stop planting new congregations when need arises but it requires
Barnabas a little monthly or quarterly financial support to keep the
work until they become mature in faith. So please share this idea with
the saints and if this seems to offend you or any, my apologies.
Thank you for your prayers which has really payoff. God bless you and
Our prayers continues with you for successful endeavors till we meet
at the eternal home in Heaven, while praying for an opportunity to
meet with you again and again in God’s mission field here Lord willing
to continue working together for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Again, thank you and God bless.
