Greetings to you and yours in Christ precious name. Hope this report meets you well.
Our 2nd Christian Couples’ Retreat on the theme “Christian Family and Conflict Management – A Path Way To Church Growth” held at the Church of Christ meeting hall, Ikot Ukpong Eren on Saturday April 21, 2018 was great as a total participants of 108 representing 54 Couples drawn from 17 local congregations of the Lord’s church with one of my WBS student and wife in attendance(not yet a christian).
I was the guest speaker on the theme while John T. Peter gave the theme analysis and Monday Etukeren with Akwaime Udom of our Nigerian Christian College of Evangelism (NCCE) Ukanafun led the Brain Storming Session as Discussants .
The retreat features interactive session. Groundnut, Biscuit and Chocolate sweet was shared to the participants while the session was on and at the end, Rice was shared as Lunch.
About 30 questions from the participants writing on piece of paper as directed by the organizer was treated using the Scripture while I also answered some questions from individuals after the event, advising them on a better option.
Every participating couples was given a copy of the Hand Book I wrote on this subject.
Two couples who attended the 1st Christian Couples’ Retreat in January 20, 2018 was also in attendance to give a testimony of how their families experience Peace through Christian Couples’ Retreat messages and pray God to bless the organizers. This was a great encouragement to the participants, for me and my team.
Others sue for continuing the Christian Couples’ Retreat as it is a veritable instrument to family building thereby guaranteed Church growth, we pray for resources to do more for Christ.
The Book I wrote on this topic was indeed a Family Tonic and oil to strengthen and lubricate the homes were necessary which the church growth depend on, your names is boldly written in the acknowledgement page for your contributions towards Evangelism and the World Bible School activities in Nigeria. The hard copy and soft copy will be sent to you.
