Mojima Etukudo’s June 2023 Report

Greetings to you and yours in Christ Jesus. Pray this note finds you well.

The month of May 2023 was very challenging in Nigeria due to the money scarcity in the banks, political transition, Government policies that raises the price of petrol and scarcity in the fuel station which is still ongoing .  We lost a soul through death at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Eyo. In all of this, God blesses our little efforts in Christ Kingdom.

May 4:, I and my wife Ekaette went on a follow-up mission to World Bible School (WBS) internet Students at Eket Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State.  They were referred to me by Doug Wheeler/ Jenifer Watson and I kept on teaching this family the Bible through the telephone in the past.  On the day when we met them for the first time, the husband and wife, Mr. Monday Evans and Mrs Edith Evans, both were baptized into Christ and introduced to a congregation in the Eket area. Both of them received a Bible, Baptismal Certificates, and Gospel tracts to help them study the Scripture since they were of the denominational church. See attached photos.

May 6: I was an officiating minister at the funeral service of our late sister Roseline Ukut at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Eyo. Many denominational and Community leaders were in attendance and listened to our sermon.

May 7: During a follow -up mission at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Essien Village, a soul obeyed the Gospel and was baptized into Christ.

May 20: I and our Ukanafun WBS Evangelism Team went on Evangelism at Ikot Inyang 1 and there were many prospects.  We hope to revisit the area for a follow-up Lord willing.

May 20: My wife “Ekaette Mojima”  was a guest speaker at the Women’s Gospel Seminar on the topic, ” WILL YOUR ANCHOR HOLD?” Over 200 Christian women gathered at the Church of Christ meeting place at Ikot Abasi Ikot Inyang in Oruk Anam Local Government Area. She reported of many questions arising from her presentation. 

May 23 to 26: I was one of the guest speakers at the four (4) day Preachers and Church Leaders Seminar at the Nigerian Christian Bible College (NCBC) Ukpom Abak on the theme, ” BRACING THE PULPIT FOR CONTEMPORARY TIMES.” It was impactful with my wife in attendance.

May 28: I worshipped and preached the sermon at Church of Christ Ndot Ikot on the topic, ” RUNNING THE RACE” and from Hebrews 12:1-2,  souls obeyed the Gospel and each of them received a copy of the Bible to help them learn about Christ and His Church.

* Also, at the Ndot Church, Twenty Seven (27) Children in the Childrens’ Bible Class received New Testament Bibles each to help them grow with the Word.

I need more of your prayers for our country Nigeria as some of our Governmental policies are making life difficult and also for the new President that was sworn in on May 29,2023 to lead with the fear of God though he is a Muslim.

Know that my prayers go with you and yours daily. 

In Christian Love and Service,

Mojima Etokudo
