N.C.B.C UKPOM EVANGELISM

Report from Uyai Joshua:

On May 17th, 2019 I participated in the Annual Prisons Evangelism at Ikot Ekpene. The theme was Remorse and Resolve (Luke 15:17-21). Nineteen (19) souls were baptized. Churches of Christ in the Area donated food items and toiletries for the up keep of the prison inmates. Sewing machines, electric irons, generators and barbing accessories were also donated for skills and vocational training of the inmates.
  I have also attached pictures of baptisms of four souls at W.B.S seminars held at C.O.C  No. 2 Ikot Okumfang on 26th May, 2019. 20 students and 4 N.C.B.C staff worked with the Church of Christ at Eka Uruk Eshiet on May 3-5, they baptized one soul. Picture here shows how the women of the Church fed N.C.B.C students and staff with fofo and Afang Soup.
June 14-16 the college sent out twenty students for the weekend to help evangelize at the Ibiaku Itam, Itu Church of Christ. On arrival at the Church, they were engaged in an open air lecture from 7-9pm. The next day June 15, they were engaged in house-to-house evangelism from 9am-3pm. They did participated in another open air lecture from 4-6pm. On Sunday June 16 they conducted worship service and had two baptisms, at Ibiaku Itam where Samuel Okon is Preaching. The church took good care of the students. 
In another development on Friday June 14, the N.C.B.C College Management appointed a new Student Government to manage the Student Affairs for 2019/2020 Academic year. The new student President is Ekomobong Itam (Degree Student) assisted by Ofonono Jackson a mistrial student as the Vice President while Kingsley Nwagbara is the Secretary. 
On June 15 during bible class at Ikot Ekpene Prisons, 9 prison inmates were baptized into Christ making a total of 28 baptisms for May/June 2019. 
To God be the Glory in Jesus Name Amen.

January 2019 Report

REPORT OF WORK FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY 2019

Warmly greetings to you in Jesus name.

I am thankful to God as He ushered us into this year 2019. I pray that He should continue like this till we grow older and die at old age.

Although there was no serious follow up due to malaria for about a week, eight people were baptized, none was restored, and I rejected one baptism as he said, “I want to continue with my Church – Apostolic.”

REPORT OF WORK FOR FIRST QUARTER JANUARY TO MARCH 2018

The report of this quarter shall be presented under three subheadings
1. Congregational development
2. World bible school activities
3. External evangelism and edification
CONGREGATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The church at Ukpagada only recorded two baptism during this period and it is not unconnected with our desire to build the inside to be strong through leadership development. We therefore started the Leadership class with men that will be taught to handle the congregation and grow into eldership. The congregation also led the WBS Team to carry out extensive evangelism in one of the Ukpagada villages. We hope to repeat there in May 2018.
WORLD BIBLE SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
During this period under review, World Bible School Great follow up worker workshop took place in Nigeria and I did this summary report below as the director of the workshop.
WBS GREAT WORKSHOP – A TOOL FOR EFFECTIVE EVANGELISM
The world Bible School great workshop is a four day gathering of preachers who do follow up work for world Bible school and those who use world Bible school materials as evangelism tool. In Nigeria the annual workshop holds once every year and was introduced by an American missionary Doug Wheeler in the early 90s and it has survived till today. This workshop is designed to be a capacity building workshop to develop men to be able to face the challenges of following up on WBS prospective students. It is also a platform for a coordinated evangelism within the location of hosting.
The great workshop is the biggest WBS organized workshop not to discuss with students but to discuss with the follow up workers. It is sponsored by congregations in the USA who have WBS follow up workers here in Nigeria. Between 2015 and 2018, over 30 souls have been won to Christ through this workshop. In Warri 2017, a Muslim was converted into the body of Christ. In 2018 a Pentecostal pastor was converted and a strong follow up team is keeping an eye on him and his denomination.
Another important aspect of the Great Workshop is the equipment of the follow up worker for greater service and functionality. At the end of the workshop participants are usually equipped with a pack containing, Bibles, books, tracts, DVDs/CDs and other study outlines. The pack is accompanied with the workshop book containing lecture notes of the conference. As the director of the WBS Great Workshop, my responsibilities include coordinating the entire activities before, during and after the workshop. From selecting the theme to appointing the speakers and ensuring that the workshop goes well lies on my table.
This year’s workshop had 8 speakers taking topics within a theme REPOSITIONING THE CHURCH FOR HIS SECOND COMING. An American missionary and president of African Christian schools foundation Chad Wagner was one of the guest speakers. 649 participants were registered. Two of the participants came from the Cameroon.
7 souls accepted to obey the gospel and were immersed into Christ. The high point of the 2018 Great Workshop is the unveiling of the newly constructed Nigeria Gospel Chariot. A
lot of brethren were excited knowing now that we can storm the rural area with the gospel. The 2019 Great Workshop is scheduled to hold at Mbaise in Imo state of Nigeria.
Beyond the workshop I introduced WBS to the school where I teach and as at today, we have over 350 enrollments. Bibles have been shared to those without Bibles who have passed the first introductory lesson.
EXTERNAL EVANGELISM AND EDIFICATION.
Between January and March I had speaking appointments at the Oron Leadership seminar, WBS Great workshop Abakaliki, Orodu Gospel meeting in Lagos and the 1st Men’s seminar held at Ogoja Town.
God has been faithful to me and my family. One major challenge I have fueling to travel up and down across the country to speak at seminars. Between April and July, I have over 6 speaking appointments. I am willing, Able and ready to do his will.
God bless you
Mike Udam
