New Church Needed

Grace and Peace be unto you through Jesus Christ our savior and king. Hope this will find you healthy and firm striving relentlessly to expand the Kingdom of Christ. Beloved, l do not relent teaching and preaching that Jesus Christ is Lord, many are responding, Obeying the good news, many are baptized, Churches planted. In my quest preaching from place to place, l visited a community, during my Open Air preaching, few brothers and sisters came out  and identify themselves as members of the Church, they said some them don’t go to worship due to distance, they called on me to plant a church in their Community. I have had meetings to know their seriousness. Finally, they wrote this letter for authenticity. I have called some serious ministers who are Evangelism conscious to brainstorm how we can achieve this divine mandate. I have planned to organize four days Open Air preaching to ascertain the fertility of the community towards the end this month. Though l always plan without fund, hoping some spiritual Christians, Soul saving conscious will help save dying souls here. The Challenges are hiring of Speaking equipment, hiring of Hall, how to cool thirst of those to be invited. The attached is their letter of request. This great work need to be looked into to find a way forward. Brethren, there are places that a calling to send the light. Help send the light or link us

 brethren that can help to achieve His will. I continue to inform you our progress. Brother Alozie 


Uyai Joshua’s latest mission report


I am glad to inform you that God continues to give blessings and increases to His work in my area.

The WBS Abak Team met on 23rd February during our monthly meetings and reported of twelve baptisms for the month of February on 12th February. I preached at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio and one soul, Emediong Emem John was baptised into Christ. That same day, the youths of Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio released and launched their first album “De Voice of Grace Accapella” and many ministers and congregations came to support the programme.

The Nigerian Christian Bible College, Ukpom celebrated her 69th Founders Day and Matriculation Ceremonies on the 18th February 2023. I supervised the programme and it was very successful. 39 students matriculated into Ministerial Program (N.C.B.C Main Campus). 11 students matriculated in Diploma Programme (Itigidi Study Centre, Cross River State). 8 students matriculated in B.A (Ed) Religious Studies and 7 students into B.A Religious Studies. More than One Million Naira was raised for the college vocational projects.

On the 26th February 2023, I spoke in a Youths Seminar at Church of Christ, Manta No. 2, Abak, there I met with some WBS students who were recently baptised and also enrolled new students for WBS courses.

We are experiencing a very difficult time in Nigeria during this elections time. There is no cash in many banks and money are being sold to owners. Petrol and food stuffs are very costly. We need your prayers and help to survive. We believe that before the end of this month, March, life will normalise and cash will flow to everyone. Chad Wagner will wire money for the first quarter of 2023 to Nigeria very early this March as he plans to make some trips. Please send your money to him early enough to catch up with his time. Please contact Chad to know exactly the time.

Thank you very much for your prayers and support for this ministry. God bless you all.

25, 3, and 21! What!?



This is the eleventh month of the year, I am so thankful to you my dear supporters for all your prayers and support for this year which has helped me to preach the gospel to the lost souls and continue to edify the body of Christ in Nigeria.

For the past two months, I have been involved in evangelism, laying foundation for new Church building, Gospel Chariot Open Air Preaching and W.B.S Seminars and contacts. God has really blessed our efforts with twenty-five baptisms at different places.

On 17th September 2022, One Hundred and Fifty (150) Church Leaders gathered at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio where I am preaching for Men Fellowship and discuss strategies for Church Growth and expansion of the kingdom of Christ.

On 25th September 2022, after a series of Bible Studies, I baptized Glory Emem John who was formerly an Apostolic member, she now worships faithfully at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio.

I took one month leave from Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio in the month of October after serving there for ten years without a leave. This enabled me to visit younger congregations which I have planted and also to preach at my home congregation, Central Church of Christ, Ukpom Abak. On 9th October, I helped in laying foundation for Church of Christ, Ikot Edung Uruan new Church building.

In the afternoon of that same day, I spoke in a W.B.S Seminar in a young congregation at Ikot Oku Ikono, Uyo Flyover, which resulted in two baptisms.

14th – 16th October, I worked with N.C.B.C Staff and Students to weekend evangelism at Itighi Idi, Abi LGA, Cross River State, while there we visited seven small congregations preaching open air and house to house and God blessed our efforts with four baptisms.

On 17th October, I baptized Abasifiok Aniedi Usen, a W.B.S Student of Donna Goulding of Perry Church of Christ, Ohio.

On 23rd October, I preached at Central Church of Christ, Ukpom my home congregation. That same day in the afternoon, I spoke in a W.B.S Seminar at Church of Christ, Obio Itak, Ikono.

I participated in the Gospel Chariot Evangelism which took place from 9th – 30th October 2022, Abak and its environs which employed house to house evangelism and night open air preaching at twenty-one different locations and eight souls were baptized.

On 30th October 2022, I visited Church of Christ, Ibuonung Achat by the invitation of Dr. Fiokedu Okorie I preached there at his home congregation.

I am grateful to inform you that I requested for a borehole from the Healing Hands International for Church of Christ, Ikot Akpabio, and they have graciously provided one borehole for this congregation and the community it is about to be commissioned. After spending one month preaching for other congregations, on November 6, I resumed at Ikot Akpabio and was warmly received by the brethren.

Thanks and God bless.

Friday Opefi’s Ministry Update

Dearly beloved brethren,

I greet you brotherly through Christ our Lord. I hope this email finds you in good health, serving and trusting our Master Jesus Christ. Forever you are in my prayers. I appreciate in no small measure your assistances to my brother and I over over the years. Thank you for the love you have shared to us. May our good Lord continue to provide you with all the enablement you need to continue to do more in His kingdom.

My ministry is going on well. I have recorded several baptisms which I always report to brother Chad Wagner. Brother Chad visits Nigeria almost annually and works with us. He is a good man and a faithful servant of Christ. Last month he sent money to me to buy Bibles for my new converts and other promising young Christians which I have done. Herewith attached are photographs of some ofthose I baptized, those that received bibles from me and my family.

Always keep us in your prayers. Nigeria is becoming increasingly unsafe because of incessant insurgency, boko haram and unknown gunmen terrorizing different places. Pray especially for the safety of God’s people. By November I hope to organize a Bible seminar at Akataka Inyimagu Ikwo. The topic of the seminar will be: THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT. Pray for us to be able to raise funds which we will use to hire canopies, chairs and cook food for our visitors. By the grace of God we shall start a congregation of the Lord’s church there.

God bless you

Yours in Christ,

Friday Opefi

We thank God for another quarter in the life of the Bear Valley Bible weekend School in Ondo state. We have successfully concluded the first semester. I want to especially thank our international director of Bear Valley Schools, Brother Keith Kasarjian for his wonderful visit to the School in Ondo State on the 4th of December, 2021. His visit has boosted our morale for competitiveness in promoting sound and Biblical education among the students and all the brethren in our state, Ondo State.

We were out preaching the gospel of Christ on the 29th of January, 2022. In Ondo City, we were 13 in number that went out preaching the gospel including 3 instructors in the Odosida area of Ondo City. We had more than 10 prospects that we will work on and gladly directed them to a nearly Church of Christ for further Biblical discussion. We are praying for a fruitful preaching exercise.
Also, Akure Study Center is not left out of the work of preaching the gospel. 11 students went out to preach the gospel including 3 of our instructors who worked with them in the field. Their prospects show a willing heart for more study of the word. We pray that our God works through their hearts in believing the gospel.

Update for DCBC

Dear Brethren,
Dorris-Chad Mission School is being upgraded facilities wise though incomplete as budgeted. $5,000 donated has taken us this far (Completion of the church meeting classroom, completion of the  office, completion of the frontage and installation of electricity). The balance of $11,900 suspending the good work if raised will help complete the upgrading to the expectation of the Ebonyi state ministry of education.
Today we were blessed with a soul to the glory of God. God blessed the completed upgraded classroom (worship place) with soul. Another one  soul promised to be baptized next Sunday.
May God continue to bless our generous supporters.
In His Service, Reuben Uche Egwu.
