GREAT WORKSHOP 2020:
This year Great Workshop held in Nyanya congregation, Abuja from February 5 through 9 was a great reunion. About 570 WBSFUW/Evangelists from 25 State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria graced the occasion. The absence of free Bible and VOTI publications make the workshop unusual, nevertheless, Bro.Chad Wagner and the local organizers make use of the available materials by freely distributing Cartons of Mission Printing International booklets to all the participants.Also about 500 BVBIN AND SWSE IBADAN calendars were freely distributed.
The BVBIN AND SWSE IBADAN were represented by myself (Bro.Makinde), Bro.Dele Shotola, Bro.Lawrence Abiodun, Bro.Gbenga Ilori, Bro.Okesami Stephen, and Bro. Paul Akinwale.

As the Lord will have it,we were able to tiles our guests house and change some doors to the befitting one.
We are still indebted to the tune of N1,615,000($4,615)been loaned last year for the upgrading of our school buildings plan and for the purchase of our School Bus for both rural and urban Evangelism .
Those willing to assist us can contact any of these men of God:

The School management in her meeting of February 26 decided in evangelizing Egbeda town -Oyo State and Asejire town-Osun State in the Saturdays of the month of March 2020.
