MJA’s Report of Work

Dear Brethren, 

Grace and peace of God be with you all in Jesus Name.  Amen.

As I have said in my Report of work in January 2021 that “This year begins with a big focus for Evangelism”.  That statement was made because of what is going on globally.

.  People are trying to turn Spiritual Worship into Idol Worship.  Political Leaders may turn away minds of people        to do what God says people should not do.  E.G. Legalizing Homosexuality.

It is a big excellence to us to be very very effective in Evangelism work now.

Here are what were done in February 2021.

.  At Church of Christ Atai Otoro, Sunday Solomon reported one Baptism.

.  Anameti reported 1 baptism.

.  M. B. Archibong reported 9 baptisms.

.  There was Youth Seminar by Nigerian Christian Bible College (NCBC) and Nigerian Christian Secondary School      (NCSS) at NCBC Campus on February 28, 2021.

.  We should encourage our women in the work of Evangelism. “THEY ARE THE WORLD POPULATION     INCREASERS”.  Our Youth as “THE POWERS AND ACTORS OF OUR EVANGELISM”.  And our
    children for “A BRIGHTER FUTURE”.

Dear Brethren, thank you for all the materials sent to us for Evangelism.  May I assure you that your labour, time, energy and financial support sent to us for the Evangelism cannot and will not be in vain.

May God continue to empower and bless you all in your good work.  Please keep praying for us.

Please do not be offended.  I want to remind you of the Financial Appeal that I made last month.

They were:

Financial assistance to complete the LAB SCIENCE BUILDING in African Christian Secondary School (ACSS) for Government Approval of Examination Center.

The Second Appeal was for assistance in Transportation in our Evangelism work.

We have enrolled many people in WBS Lessons and distributed a lot of Tracts to people.  The work is ongoing.  Pray for us.

MJA/July 2020

Dear Brethren,

Covid-19 Pandemic cannot stop us preaching the word.  We must  preach the word in season and out of season.  II Tim. 4:1 – 2;

–  In Odukpani, Cross River State, we had 10 converts in July 2020.

–  One Lady, a retired Nurse, her husband is a Lecturer in University of Calabar, is working with us in evangelism.  She always come for Tracts and Bibles for Evangelism.  What she is doing has brought establishment of a new Congregation in Calabar, Cross River State.  No wonder why Paul commended Phoebe to Church at Rome, because she was “A SUCCOUR” of many. Rom. 16:1 – 2

–  There were 6 baptisms where Nelson Akpan is doing the WBS Follow Up Work in Cross River State.

–  One restoration in Two Towns Church of Christ Manta/Midim Abak.

–  There were 2 baptisms at Ikot Akpayak Church of Christ, Uyo.

TWO APPEALS:

I made an appeal many months ago for financial assistance to complete the LAB SCIENCE BUILDING in African Christian Secondary School (ACSS) for Government Approval of Examination Center.

The second Appeal was made two months ago for assistance in Transportation in our Evangelism Work.

I know that many of you have deep desire to assist me in many ways.  Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, Economic of the people is Lock down.

Please if any one has any way to assist us in any of those appeals it will be highly appreciated.  May God’s blessing be on you all.  Amen.

Please keep on praying for us.

In His service,
Monday Akpakpan.
