Beloved in Christ Jesus,
Greetings and appreciation for your love and care! May the Lord keep using you all for His glory is our fervent prayer .
Below is the summary of our June 1-7 at the SWSE-Ibadan, Nigeria.
The staff and students of the Southwest School of Evangelism (SWSE), Ibadan and our Lagos counterpart divided ourselves into three groups on June 1 to evangelize Egbeda town, Jago village and Butubutu village and the group evangelized Jago village had one convert on June 1, 2013 at the end of that day activity.
On Sunday of June 2, I taught on What Makes a Strong Church from Deut.4 :1-40 at Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation-Ibadan. We had 56 in attendance with total collection of N2,050=
Immediately after that Sunday morning worship, I travel to Lagos to welcome our August visitor-brother Bill Stewart who arrived in Nigeria around 4:00 pm on that Sunday evening.
On June 3, brother Bill commenced teaching on Building the Bridge on Marriage Communication at SWSE-Ibadan main campus, and our 37 students (from both Ibadan & Lagos satellite campus) were in attendance. The lectures were so interesting and powerful and the students wished the lectures should be extended by another one week!
During the lectures on the home by brother Bill, one of our prospects named Victoria Foluke Oguntunde was baptized on June 6, 2013 at Oshun River by 3:30 pm witnessed by brother Bill and four other brethren.
On the evening of June 6, brother Bill witnessed the sending forth of our 37 students for a month teaching practice in Oyo, Ogun, Ondo, Oshun, Lagos, Kwara, Edo, Delta and River states of Nigeria. We shared with them all packages of tracts for evangelism during their one month preaching program.
On June 7, at the close of brother Bill’s lectures on the home and marriage, a Marriage Banquet was conducted. I served as the guest speaker and I spoke on Living a life of Love (1 Cor. 13:1-7) while brother Bill did the renewal of marriage vows for eleven couples at Doug Wheeler Hall! The program was attended by over 100 participants. In fact, every thing was great!
On Saturday morning of June 8, brother Bill left Nigeria for Cameroon for another week of lectures. We thank all our American and Canadian brethren for their dedication and great interest in the salvation of mankind. May the Lord of blessing continue blessing you all in Jesus Christ name, amen.
I remain yours in His grace as a servant,
