Beloved in Christ Jesus,
Greetings from Nigeria. We just concluded our 15th annual Bible Lectureship organized by the Western Nigeria Christian College from the evening of May 6 through 9. The event was a successful program which discussed “Spiritual Formation from life of Christ, Peter and Paul.”
As of 10:00 am on Wednesday, when I went to the register point, I was registered as #269. Brother Aaron Bailey, an American missionary stationed in Tanzania, was the guest speaker assisted by brother Abiodun Owolabi the director of the school while we and other preachers were divided into groups for group discussion.
Brethren, we appreciate all the American and Canadian brethren for their partnership with us in the speeding of the gospel in Africa and beyond. May the Lord of blessing continue to bless all your undertaking in Jesus Christ name, amen.
The SWSE-Ibadan has postponed their resumption date from May 16 to May 30,2014 . We are sorry for any inconvenience! The study hours for the 4th semester have increased from 2:15 pm to 6:00 pm daily.
The 12th annual Bible lectureship / graduation of the twenty four Bible students is fixed for August 21 - 23, 2014 Lord's willing, and the students’ teaching practices will come up on July 12 through August 10, 2014. The 12th annual lectureship / graduation will cost us N250,000 for printing and feeding of the expected 250 participants while the teaching practice will cost us between N70,000 to N90,000.
Brethren, we deeply appreciate your great contribution toward the growth of the Lord's church here in Africa. May the Lord keep on using you all for His glory is our fervent prayer in Jesus Christ name, amen.
Greetings from my co-WBS follow up workers, staff and students of the SWSE-Ibadan and the Lagos campus.
We (myself and some WBSFUW) visited and studied the Bible with five WBS students with sister Kathleen Withers and brother Kenny Heflin on Saturday evening at Kute village of Lagelu L.G.A of Oyo state and they were later directed to visit the church of Christ at Kute for more studies.
On Sunday, May 11, 2014 brother Godwin Ofem, one of the graduates of SWSE-Ibadan, admonished the saints at Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation from Acts 21:10-15 and in the evening I taught on “Trials Dark on Every Hand” (Matt.4:1-11).
Brethren, four of our students will attend interviews by the last Sunday of this month in Osun, Ogun and Ondo states. Four congregations need the services of these students as evangelists. Please remember them: brothers Godwin Ede, Olofingorite Mayowa, John Zege and lastly Ilori Gbenga in your prayer.
Big thanks for your brotherly love! Stay blessed and be strong in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sincerely in Christ,
Makinde Ebenezer Olufemi (Director of studies)
