SECOND QUARTER REPORT
To the glory of God, we are kept safe by God amidst serious insecurity plaguing our country. Our God is faithful and his kingdom must expand.
Between the months of April, May and June 5 souls have been added to the vineyard of the Lord arising from our work in the vineyard. The church meeting at Ukpagada withdrew fellowship from two brothers who allowed the devil to lure them away from the faith.
In April we had a Discipleship training that was focused on church growth and expansion. It was a great exposition and the resultant effect of that workshop is the renewed zeal to do great exploits in the vineyard of the Lord. The church at Ukpagada plans to start a new congregation in one of the 9 villages of Ukpagada. For this singular reason, I now lead my entire family with some brethren to preach there every Thursday for eight weeks now. A study center has been created there, the attendance is very encouraging and we hope to turn it into a congregation once we start to have conversion there. We are very close and will continue to covet your prayers in this regard.
Within this quarter, I had the rare privilege to speak at three gospel meetings. In one of the meetings, a couple surrendered to the love of Christ and obeyed the gospel the following day after the lectureship.
Two congregations gave me awards for my contribution to the growth of the kingdom in Northern Cross River state. I give God all the glory for being found worthy of such honour.
Our WBS team arose from the Discipleship training and spent three days preaching in Wula, Eastern Boki (9km from Cameroon) where we started a congregation there.
Three years ago, God used me to convert my Head of Department Mr Festus Okwo into the fold. His conversion got his daughter converted. Then his wife and then a church was planted in Wula his village and today his mother and 10 other souls are in faith. Today he is my Personal Assistant and co-labourer in going out for our Thursday evangelism. Our God is great.
Lord willing, I shall be heading to Kenya for mission work (leadership Training) between 6th and 16th August.
As a congregation, we will need a little support for our Annual Lectureship in November. $200 can be ok to cater for accommodation of our resource persons.
The Bible in my store is exhausted. $100 can get 30 copies and the work will continue to move.
Keep my family in your prayers.
I just turned 8 years working at Ukpagada. I hope the Lord is happy with my work? I am still an unprofitable servant.
God bless you all for the support I enjoy from you milk of personal and congregational kindness.
May the good lord bless and keep us all safe.
