REMINDER:

Dear Brethren,

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.

MJA’s June 2020 Report

Dear Brethren,
Covid 19 Lock down make people to send me many phone calls with funny messages.  Their messages
become big encouragement in my work.
Here are some of the messages.
(a)  MJA you helped me to accept Christ in Baptism 45 years ago.  The topic of your sermon was “FAITH OR FEAR – what is your choice”.  For the Pandemic of Covid 19 going on in the World now, what is your Choice, Faith or Fear.  Answer was “FAITH”.
(b)  Another call was “Peace man who or what will separate you from the love of Christ?,  Will Covid 19?  Read Rom. 8:35 – 39”.  Covid 19 cannot separate us from the love of Christ, was my answer.
(c)  Another call was M. J. Akpakpan, your sermon during the burial of my grand Daddy two years ago was “BLESSED ARE THE DEAD  WHICH DIE IN THE LORD FROM HENCEFORTH.  Rev. 14:13;  So many people are dying now.  How many of them are dying in the Lord?  Those who are baptize into Christ and live in Christ faithfully will receive blessing from God when he or she dies.  That was my answer.  There were very many calls that make me to sit up well in my work of fishing of souls for the Lord.
Here are what took place in June 2020.
–  At Odukpani we had 5 baptisms and 2 restorations.-  Adiasim in Essien Udim, 5 WBS students were baptized.-  At Church of Christ Ikot Ekpeyak Ikono, Uyo, 5 people were baptized.-  Abak Itenghe Congregation 2 people (a grand mother/grand son) were baptized during Wednesday
   Bible Class.-  Anameti reported 1 baptism from Ikot Oku Mfang Congregation.
A big thank you to the person that sent $500 to me to buy Bibles.  Total number of Bible bought for that money was 200 (100 big KJV  and 100 big RSV). 

The problem I am having is transportation.  I am facing this problem for more than two years.


I appreciate your support financially, materially and Spiritually.  Thank you all.  Keep praying for us.

Your Partner in Evangelism work, Monday Akpakpan.

Dear Brethren,
Greetings from Akwa Ibom State, Monday Akpakpan and family.

May God be with you all.
