REPORT OF WORK FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH 2020
– 1 BAPTISM, 1 SEMINAR AND 1 ORDINATION OF ELDERS/DEACONS
God is love, His love and mercies endureth forever. It is the Lord mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. God’s love is new every morning great is thy faithfulness.
The coronavirus – COVID 19 that is claiming lives of many Americans and Nigerians will not touch any of us in Jesus name, Amen. This virus will soon end.
On Sunday March 1, 2020, I preached the Gospel of Christ at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio, one soul responded and was baptized.
On 22nd March, 2020, I conducted W.B.S seminar at Church of Christ, Ukana Mkpa Eyop, Abak. We thank God that this dangerous virus has not reached Akwa Ibom State, so the seminar attracted a good number of Christians. We also preached from house to house and enrolled many into W.B.S courses. What we are doing in my congregation is that we do not allow many members to sit together, we try to space them and they wash hands with sanitizers and running water before they enter the Church hall. Large congregations split their services into four sessions. This week the federal and state Government has declared no work, stay at home from Monday to Friday and restriction of flights and closure of boarders. But workers are paid their salaries so that they may have food to eat with their families.
On Saturday 29th March, 2020 I participated in the ordination service of the first batch of Elders and Deacons at Church of Christ, No 3 Udoekpo Lane, Abak where three Elders and Deacons were ordained. It was a grand ceremony because only few congregations have Elders and Deacons here in Nigeria, many people came out to see the ordination.
Brother Chad, let me ask, I will like to attend this year’s ACAC at Eswatini-Mozambique if there are some assistance from Austin Chapel, let me know sir. Thank you
It is our daily prayers that God will continue to protect us from all harms and infections especially this Corona Virus-COVID 19. May this virus ends soon.
Thank you and God bless you richly.
