Beloved in Christ,
Greetings from staff and students of the Southwest School of Evangelism (SWSE), Ibadan Sand Lagos campus, Nigeria.
Brother Jerry Bates arrived in Nigeria safely on Saturday around 4:30 pm and resumed work on Sunday morning at Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation, Ibadan where he taught on “Marks of True Disciples” from Luke 5 while I served as his interpreter. We went out on house to house evangelism immediately after the morning Bible class by brother Jerry from 10:00 am to 11:30 pm on that Lord's day of June 15, 2014.
Monday morning through Friday evening, he taught the students and five of SWSE instructors from the book of Romans.
The staff and some students of SWSE, Ibadan main campus travel on Friday evening to join the brethren at Idah, Kogi state on a day mass evangelism which resulted into conversion of two souls.
Brother Jerry continued his African tour on Saturday afternoon as he boarded the Arik Air Line to Ghana where he will be teaching the students there more about the Bible.
On Sunday morning, I taught on “The Church and Mission” at Isheri-Oshun congregation, Lagos. We are 170 in attendance with total collection of N14,330=.
June 21 was an entrance examination and interview for the next academic session 2014 / 2015 at SWSE-Ibadan main campus and that of Lagos satellite campus. Ten new students were admitted to join some students with low grades while twelve students are enrolled for the second year courses. Details will be sent on Friday with the proposed budget for 2014 / 2015 session.
Brethren, we thank all of you who have made the trip of brother Jerry to Nigeria a reality. May the Lord of blessing continue to bless all our joint efforts in Christ name, Amen.
I remain yours in His grace as a servant,
Makinde Ebenezer Olufemi (Director of studies)
