Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hope that the Lord’s hands are on you all for good.
Here in Nigeria the economics and social conditions are getting harder and unfavorable as days go by. We really depend completely on God for survival. The rate of inflation is so terrible that prices of most regular food materials have risen to as high as three hundred percent. This is serious, we need your prayers.
In the last report I wrote that Nigerian Institute of Arts and Theological Studies (NIATS) students and teachers will be going out on an evangelism outreach. This has taken place with a heart warming result. The date was 22 to 25 July just last weekend, I was there myself. We hard a total of eleven converts to God’s glory. We are so grateful to God for this harvest. Here are some pictures of the preaching stands & baptisms, some baptisms were done when it was dark, that was the time we concluded the evening open air preaching.
The year 2020 was a bitter story the world over because of the covid-19 pandemic. It encroached and shattered the academic calendar. But God granted us the enablement to satisfy the academic requirements for the year 2020. Yes we were able to finished the 2nd semester from August to October and started the new academic session (2021) in November.
Our students were sent on their practical field works and came back with bumper harvest. Their field work engagements which lasted a month made a total of 25 baptisms and 12 restorations. Some pictures here show the busy outing. Meanwhile the 1st semester 2021 academic year has continued from 11/1/21 after the Christmas and New year celebration.
We are praying fervently for our donors that the Lord may bless them more abundantly. We also pray that the havoc which the pandemic is wrecking be completely overthrown by the power of the Almighty God in Jesus name.
