Dear fellow workers in Christ's vineyard,
Greetings from SWSE-Ibadan, Nigeria. We give thanks and adoration to Almighty God for the successful completion of first semester classes and tests at Ibadan main campus, Nigeria.
Secondly, we thank you all for your partnership over the years that has greatly contributed to the successful completion of this first semester at the Ibadan main campus in the 2013-2014 session.
Brethren, the school is still indebted to the sum of N464,000 ($3,000) from the 2012-2013 academic session. Those willing to assist us in the payment of this loan before the end of this year should please contact our beloved brother Doug M.Wheeler (Nigerian Evangelism minister at the Westside church of Christ or brother Bob Turner (Director of Extension program, BVBID) or brother Steven Ashcraft (West Africa co-ordinator, BVBID).
Concerning the building projects at the Southwest school of Evangelism (SWSE), Ibadan main campus: I have spent over ten million Naira ($66,000) on the two buildings. Contributions from myself and family, brethren & churches in Nigeria and U.S brethren =N1,138,000 ($7,500). The loan from banks and friends =N4,862,000 ($32,000). Sales of 20 Acres of my farm land =N4,000,000 ($27,000). Contributions from an anonymous donor and sister Lela Holley via brother Doug for the payment of my loan =$1,500.
Our target now is the construction of the students dormitory that will cost us about five million Naira =N5,000,000 ($35,000).
At the just concluded first semester classes and tests at Ibadan main campus, only 20 students will continue in the first year program in the next semester and eleven in year 2 of the program.
Brethren, second semester classes begin at Ibadan main campus on November 11, 2013 nevertheless, our students are expected back in the school on November 8, 2013 in preparation for the second semester.
Presently, our year 1 students are in the middle of vocational courses in Ibadan and Lagos State while year 2 students are on two weeks teaching practice. The Lagos campus will end their first semester classes and tests on December 20, 2013, Lord's willing.
May the Lord of blessing continue to bless our work together in Jesus Christ name, Amen.
Your fellow laborer in Christ,
Makinde E. Olufemi (Director)
