Timothy Iwe’s WBS Report

 30th June 2020

Dear brethren,

Report of My Online World Bible Study Help Effort for April to June 2020

INTRODUCTION: Challenging time is really an opportunity to show the true strength of a Christian. The COVID 19 pandemic is no longer a news to all but the effect of it to the church, the school and the society will last long. The lockdown affected most activities giving the Online WBS program an edge. It of great wisdom that the upgrade was pulsed for now for the timing is not excellent in my own understanding. We need the site mostly now.

Progress Report: It is my pleasure to be found useful even during these challenging times. The Online World Bible School Project is a great one and is even becoming more effective this time that many are working from home. The process of upgrading has affected our online studies with our students.  I have been able to grow my WBS Online Students from 1,716 in beginning of May to 1,863 as at the 30th of June 2020. 2 students completed their courses during this period.

I want to thank God for using me in that capacity. 5 souls were added to the body of Christ during this period. “Kerry Lombard wrote Hi there. I just wanted to thank you for arranging my baptism. I was baptized on Monday and have been invited to a church. Feeling very blessed indeed. Regards Kerry. That was Kerry comment from South Africa. Join me to thank God and pray for her to be stable in the kingdom. The last was a family that Bro Titus Blair introduced to me. We will do more as God give us the privilege to serve Him.

CHALLENGES: Electricity is a challenging issue in Nigeria. However, I have been able to provide an alternative power supply for myself. I use Solar Energy however, my battery is showing signs of weakness and need replacement. Paying for Internet here is another issue.

CONCLUSION: We are all pencils in the hand of God. More work will be done as we learn more to work and serve humanity.

Thanks and God bless you.

Lagos Island School Report

REPORT OF THE BEAR VALLEY BIBLE INSTITUTE – LAGOS ISLAND CENTER,  May 2020 – June 2020.

INTRODUCTION: Challenging time is really an opportunity to show the true strength of a Christian. The COVID 19 pandemic is no longer a news to all but the effect of it to the church, the school and the society will last long. The lockdown affected our classes for two months but we were able to resume class last month being May when Lagos State government gave permission for movement within the state.

The number of people we are reading or hearing having Corona Virus in our Country may not be the true picture, for some government leaders have seen this as an opportunity to make money from International body. Such attitude made them to continue to inflict the number. We pray that God will continue to protect his own children always.

ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES: Our classes resumed after the lockdown. Bro Oluwafemi Adewuyi taught the Book of James and Bro Emmanuel Odoh just concluded Godhead. Bro Etim Nfon who is the Coordinator of Ikorodu Center will be teaching the 3 Epistles of John from next Saturday. We have 17 students in our center presently however, 10 are regular in class while some have not resumed due to fear of the present situation.

WBS ONLINE STUDY HELPER: It is my pleasure to be found useful even during these challenging times. The Online World Bible School Project is a great one and is even becoming more effective this time that many are working from home. It is challenging that they choose to upgrade their site when needed most. The process has affected our online studies with our students.  I have been able to grow my WBS Online Students from 1,716 in beginning of May to 1,863 as at the 30th of June 2020. 2 students completed their courses during this period.

I want to thank God for using me in that capacity. 5 souls were added to the body of Christ during this period. “Kerry Lombard wrote Hi there. I just wanted to thank you for arranging my baptism. I was baptized on Monday and have been invited to a church. Feeling very blessed indeed. Regards Kerry. That was Kerry comment from South Africa. Join me to thank God and pray for her to be stable in the kingdom. The last was a family that Bro Titus Blair introduced to me. We will do more as God give us the privilege to serve Him.

CHALLENGES: We thank God for the authority of Bear Valley for the sacrifice in helping us study the word of God in this part of the world. The pandemic may continue to be a serious challenging factor to our work. We pray that it go down worldwide this period.

CONCLUSION: We are all pencils in the hand of God. More work will be done as we learn more to work and serve humanity.

Thanks and God bless you.

BVBI-Lagos Island Report

REPORT OF THE BEAR VALLEY BIBILE INSTITUTE – LAGOS ISLAND CENTR,  December 2019 – February 2020.

INTRODUCTION:

Our God is gracious in caring for all who are in the kingdom till date. It pleases Him to find us useful in the church especially in the 2nd quarter of the existence of Lagos Island Study Center in Lagos Nigeria. We are were for the first time involved in door-knocking as part of the school program and it worth it all.

ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES: Let me start my report with academic activities in the past few months. We are on the 6th course presently. Bro Abiola Olusoji just finished teaching Homiletics and Bro Frank Ekpodikpo started Old Testament 2 (Study of the History: Joshua – Esther). Having 3 new students. We were 13 before and adding 3 making a total of 16 students. The new students are all male. One of them is a serving minister. 10 students took the last course. We will be visiting congregations to seek for new students. Tim Iwe had a wonderful experience in teaching Evangelical Epistles in Agege and Ikorodu Centers respectively. The wealth of experience gotten during interaction in both centers humbled me and shows the impact of BV program in Lagos. God will bless the brotherhood so much that this program will continue effectively over time.

CAMPAIGN PROGRAM: A great job was done for the Lord in Lagos Island church. We knocked doors at the main wing of the Police Barracks in Obalende and it was an interesting outing. We were 25 in attendance out of which students were 11. We had 22 prospects to follow up by the congregation. We thank BV for giving us this chance to reach out. More of such will help the students have practical field experience in the Lord’s work. Also Satellite Church of Christ had her 7th Annual Bible Lectureship. The Theme for the year was The Power of the Resurrected Christ. It was a four days event in which the last day had three sessions. There was Door Knocking in the morning in which 15 congregations attended. 79 brethren went out and had 28 prospects. The afternoon session was an Open Air Preaching which the Gospel Chariot was used. Two speakers were involved and lastly, we had an evening session the same day in the church compound. The church gave out 4 copies of the Bible with other Study materials. The church will continue with the follow-up.

WBS ONLINE STUDY HELPER: We thank God also for finding Tim Iwe worthy to be involved in online Study help with the WBS program. Am having 1,254 students presently. Two Instructors and graduated students of BV have register to join the Study Help program too.

CONCLUSION: We thank God for the good working going on in Lagos Nigeria. Keep us in your prayer as we pray for you too.

Thanks and God bless you.
