Dear fellow soldiers of Christ,
Greetings from Nigeria. We thank you all for your prayer for our dear country, Nigeria.
We (myself, brother Kayode Eniafe & brother Dele Shotola) traveled on Friday afternoon to work with brother Emmanuel Nwaorji and the church at Ilisan-Remo in Ogun state in two day open air Bible lectureship and house to house evangelism on Saturday morning through evening.
On Friday open air, I taught on Heaven and it's occupants while brother Kayode Eniafe taught on Hell and it's occupants. On Saturday morning, we divided ourselves into four groups for house to house evangelism while brother Dele Shotola taught on Sin, Our Great Obstacle to Enter Heaven and the host minister taught on What Can a Sinner Do to Get to Heaven during the Saturday evening open air Bible lectureship.
On Sunday morning, May 18th, at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation-Ibadan, brother Makinde Emmanuel led in songs, I taught on Spiritual Formation from Matt. 5-7, while brother Destiny Elijah, a year one student of SWSE -Ibadan, admonished the church from Eph. 5:1-17.
Brethren, all other instructors at SWSE-Ibadan took a give role in their respective congregations on the Lord's day of May 18, 2014.
Thanks to all our supporters in the U.S. and Canada who are playing a vital role in the continuity of the SWSE, Ibadan, Nigeria. We also appreciate brother Steven Ashcraft and associates who have help us raise the needed $3,200 for the completion of this session (2013/2014). The school will open for lectures on May 30, 2014, Lord's willing. I (Makinde) will handle the following lectures: Life of Christ 4, Research Methods, Church Leadership & Administration, Discipleship Training & Practical. Brother Kayode Eniafe will handle OT Prophets-Major, Pastoral Epistles, and Evangelism 3. Brother Isaac Olaniyan will handle Revelation & Church History. Brother Abiola Joseph Olusoji will handle Christian Disciplines / Psychology and Methodology while brother Matthew Idowu will handle Romans, Evangelism 2 and Homiletics 3.
Our final students teaching practice for this session comes up July 12 through August 10, 2014, Lord's willing.
Our entrance examinations & interviews for the next academic session comes up on June 21, 2014 at Ibadan main campus.
Brethren, due to our financial position, which is not encouraging, we have decided to admit only twenty five students for both year 1 & 2 courses.
Once more, we thank you all for your partnership and brotherly love! May the Lord of blessing continue to bless you all is our fervent prayer, Amen.
Your fellow laborer in the kingdom of Christ,
