MISSIONS UPDATES SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER 2022

25 BAPTISMS, 3 RESTORATIONS, 21 OPEN AIRS PREACHING WITH GOSPEL CHARIOT

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.

Greetings to you and yours in Christ Jesus Christ. Pray this email meets you well, we have been mentioning you in our  prayers for God to see you through your endeavors.
We did some follow up with our Evangelism Team and God added a Soul to Christ through water baptism at  Ikot Ibritam a neighboring village of Ikot Akpan Eyo.
Yesterday Sunday June 13,2021 was a very hectic day for me, I spoke at the indoor Bible Lectureship at Ikot Odiong on the topic” Christian Relationship With Enemies”, many questions arose and was attended to using the Bible. Two people confessed of their sin of unforgiving spirit and ask for prayers of the saints.
Again, Between 1.00pm to 5.00pm of yesterday Sunday June 13, I and my wife Ekaette attended a Christian Couples Retreat at the Central Church of Christ, Abak-Urban , I was a guest speaker on the theme” Strengthening  Martial Bound”. The lesson attracted many questions from the participants.

Mojima’s May report

Greetings to you and to all in Christ Jesus name. pray this mail meets you well.
Here in Nigeria, it’s indeed a trying time as we struggle with the effect of global pandemic (COVID 19), the security situation in some parts of the country is terrifying the entire country. We need your continue prayers for peace and stability.
We thank God that despite all the happening in our country, the gate of hell couldn’t stop the spread of the Gospel in our part of the country, while we remain vigilant when walking in the field.
The effect of the Evangelism we embarked on April 29 as a token of appreciation to God for my birthday had tremendous results. During the month of May 2021, we welcome five (5) visitors at Ikot Odiong church in all Sundays worship and one restored erring brother, but none of the 5 visitors obeyed the Gospel yet , we are still teaching them the Gospel hope they come to the knowledge of Truth. 
I visited the 19 months old church we planted at Ata Essien Obio Akpa village during our rural Evangelism in September 2019 and they are doing well in terms of numerical, Spiritual  and infrastructure. They have set up a permanent block building for her place of worship pray for enablement to complete the building as they increased in number. They need your prayers.
I preached a funeral sermon on May 1, at Ikot Inyang Abia village during the burial of a late brother Ezekiel Akpan, and the attendance was impressive, pray our Gospel heal the sick souls. 
We lost one of our sisters through death at Ikot Udo Mbang, until dead she was a widow and did not have any child but was a dedicated sister. She was buried on May 29.

I attended and participate at the four (4) Days Discipleship Making workshop at The Nigerian Christian Bible College (NCBC) Ukpom Abak during her 2021 Preachers and Church Leaders Seminar, it was interesting and a great reminder of the Great Commission.
Great news from one of our newest Church planted at Nto Abia Ekpenyong, the Preacher reports One (1) baptism in May 2021. Pray for the newly baptized and for continue growth.
Lord willing, our Evangelism Team will embark on Soul winning mission in June 2021, we will follow up on those we preached to during the months etc.
We need your continue prayers for peace in our country Nigeria and resources to help with our work for Christ.
In Christian Love and Service, Mojima Etokudo
