ABOUT A STUDENT :
Bro. Jude Canox David is one of our present year- 2 students. A native of Ososo in Edo state. Born on August 17,2000 to Bro. and Sister John Jude of the Church of Christ, Jaleoyemi -Oniyere ,Ibadan.

His mission after his tertiary education is to assist the church of Christ Saki town,Oyo State and in the evangelization of that northern part of Oyo State.
SPECIAL ACCOMPLISHMENT :
In spite of our present financial state, the school was able to reprint four thousand copies of each of our six local tracts for the purpose of evangelization of both rural and urban areas of the Western States of Nigeria in this month of September 2020.
Permit me to give kudos to the supporters of the BVBIN & SWSE, Ibadan for working together to achieve this victory. The school management and instructors who wholeheartedly accepted the proposal of our evangelism team to get another set of our local tracts printed also deserve to be appreciated.
Brethren, the quarterly request for this local gospel tracts from young congregations in the Western States of Nigeria including Kwara and Kogi States also shows that our brethren/churches here actually know the value of gospel tracts /literatures both locally and internationally printed.
CONCLUSION: We thank you all for your great contributions toward the growth of the Lord’s church in Africa, Nigeria in particular. May the Lord of blessing continue to bless all our joint efforts in Christ Jesus, amen.
I remain yours in His grace as a servant….. Makinde Ebens Olufemi ( The Chief Servant of BVBIN & SWSE, Ibadan and WBSFUW)
