I am glad to report on the restoration of Mr. Francis Akpan, N.C.B.C 1993 graduate of the Ministerial Programme. After his graduation, he preached for the Church of Christ for five years but later backslid and went to preach for a denomination, Mount Zion Light House. This month of October, God opened his eyes and he returned to the Lord’s Church. He came to my office last week and asked me to look for a congregation for him to work with.
