Solomon Solomon

My team of WBS visited one of the rural areas of Etim and 7 souls were added to the kingdom.

My name is Solomon Solomon, a gospel preacher who was converted by Doris Taylor in 1994 when she was a missionary here in Nigeria with her husband. I am one of the pioneer Degree students of NCBC (Nigerian Christian Bible College) in Religious Studies. I am greatly involved in mission work, evangelizing through WBS (World Bible School), Prison Ministry and also working with a Christian school (ACSS) as an Administrator.
I am happy to inform you that my team of WBS visited one of the rural areas of Etim Ekpo, a local government Area of Akwa Ibom State. We were blessed to have 7 souls added to the kingdom.
We are still in need of transportation to further the work.
May God bless you and your great work in Jesus name, Amen.
Solomon Solomon

World Bible School Team


The report of this quarter shall be presented under three subheadings
1. Congregational development
2. World bible school activities
3. External evangelism and edification
The church at Ukpagada only recorded two baptism during this period and it is not unconnected with our desire to build the inside to be strong through leadership development. We therefore started the Leadership class with men that will be taught to handle the congregation and grow into eldership. The congregation also led the WBS Team to carry out extensive evangelism in one of the Ukpagada villages. We hope to repeat there in May 2018.
During this period under review, World Bible School Great follow up worker workshop took place in Nigeria and I did this summary report below as the director of the workshop.
The world Bible School great workshop is a four day gathering of preachers who do follow up work for world Bible school and those who use world Bible school materials as evangelism tool. In Nigeria the annual workshop holds once every year and was introduced by an American missionary Doug Wheeler in the early 90s and it has survived till today. This workshop is designed to be a capacity building workshop to develop men to be able to face the challenges of following up on WBS prospective students. It is also a platform for a coordinated evangelism within the location of hosting.
The great workshop is the biggest WBS organized workshop not to discuss with students but to discuss with the follow up workers. It is sponsored by congregations in the USA who have WBS follow up workers here in Nigeria. Between 2015 and 2018, over 30 souls have been won to Christ through this workshop. In Warri 2017, a Muslim was converted into the body of Christ. In 2018 a Pentecostal pastor was converted and a strong follow up team is keeping an eye on him and his denomination.
Another important aspect of the Great Workshop is the equipment of the follow up worker for greater service and functionality. At the end of the workshop participants are usually equipped with a pack containing, Bibles, books, tracts, DVDs/CDs and other study outlines. The pack is accompanied with the workshop book containing lecture notes of the conference. As the director of the WBS Great Workshop, my responsibilities include coordinating the entire activities before, during and after the workshop. From selecting the theme to appointing the speakers and ensuring that the workshop goes well lies on my table.
This year’s workshop had 8 speakers taking topics within a theme REPOSITIONING THE CHURCH FOR HIS SECOND COMING. An American missionary and president of African Christian schools foundation Chad Wagner was one of the guest speakers. 649 participants were registered. Two of the participants came from the Cameroon.
7 souls accepted to obey the gospel and were immersed into Christ. The high point of the 2018 Great Workshop is the unveiling of the newly constructed Nigeria Gospel Chariot. A
lot of brethren were excited knowing now that we can storm the rural area with the gospel. The 2019 Great Workshop is scheduled to hold at Mbaise in Imo state of Nigeria.
Beyond the workshop I introduced WBS to the school where I teach and as at today, we have over 350 enrollments. Bibles have been shared to those without Bibles who have passed the first introductory lesson.
Between January and March I had speaking appointments at the Oron Leadership seminar, WBS Great workshop Abakaliki, Orodu Gospel meeting in Lagos and the 1st Men’s seminar held at Ogoja Town.
God has been faithful to me and my family. One major challenge I have fueling to travel up and down across the country to speak at seminars. Between April and July, I have over 6 speaking appointments. I am willing, Able and ready to do his will.
God bless you
Mike Udam

2nd Christian Couples Retreat

Greetings to you and yours in Christ precious name. Hope this report meets you well.

Our 2nd Christian Couples’ Retreat on the theme “Christian Family and Conflict Management – A Path Way To Church Growth”  held at the Church of Christ meeting hall, Ikot Ukpong Eren on Saturday April 21, 2018 was great as a total participants of 108 representing 54 Couples drawn from 17 local congregations of the Lord’s church with one of my WBS student and wife in attendance(not yet a christian).

The retreat features interactive session. Groundnut, Biscuit and Chocolate sweet was shared to the participants while the session was on and at the end, Rice was shared as Lunch.

About 30 questions from the participants writing on piece of paper as directed by the organizer was treated using the Scripture while I also answered some questions from individuals after the event, advising them on a better option.

Every participating couples was given a copy of the Hand Book I wrote on this subject.

Two couples who attended the 1st  Christian Couples’ Retreat in January 20, 2018 was also in attendance to give a testimony of how their families experience Peace through  Christian Couples’ Retreat messages and pray God to bless the organizers. This was a great encouragement to the participants, for me and my team.

Others sue for continuing the Christian Couples’ Retreat as it is a veritable instrument  to family building thereby guaranteed Church growth, we pray for resources to do more for Christ.

The Book I wrote on this topic was indeed  a Family Tonic and oil to strengthen and lubricate the homes were necessary which the church growth depend on, your names is boldly written in the acknowledgement page for your contributions towards Evangelism and the World Bible School activities in Nigeria.  The hard copy and soft copy will be sent to you.

We need more of your prayers as we continually pray for you and yours.
