Beloved in Christ,
Greetings from Nigeria and the Southwest School of Evangelism (SWSE), Ibadan and Lagos campus and from my fellow WBS follow up team in the Southwestern states of Nigeria.
One of our August 2014 graduates named brother Samuel Oladokun visited and taught the students two hours each day from Monday through Friday on “a cappella” music.
On Saturday, we (staff and students) evangelized Ogunbunmi and Arikusa villages of Ona-Ara local government, Oyo state between 9:00 am to 2:30 pm.
Our WBS team in Osun state is presently working with three secondary schools in Ilesha under the leadership of brother Matthew Roland, while that of Igbesa and Owode Yewa in Ogun state are working with five secondary schools under the leadership of brother Matthew Adeyemi and brother Lawrence Peter Abiodun (BVBI certificate student), which led to the conversion of a student on Saturday according to brother Matthew Adeyemi’s report on Sunday evening.
At the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation, Ibadan, brother Idowu Segun, one of our year one students taught on “The Lordship of Christ” on January 18, while I spoke on “True Worship versus Satan’s Lie Today” at our monthly open-air Bible lectureship and door-to-door evangelism at Olukotun / Idi-Orogbo junction.

Brother David Edo is assisting the Asejire congregation in Osun state. The staff and students of the Southwest School of Evangelism (SWSE), Ibadan campus evangelized Laminin and Kuede villages of Ona Ara L.G.A over the weekend.
I taught on “Ekklesiakuriako - The Called-Out that Belong unto The Lord” at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation, Ibadan this morning to show the benefits of being a member of the Lord's church and brother Samuel Oladokun, one of August 2014 graduates with a BVBI certificate, taught the secondary class on “Doctrines of the Bible…Worship.” We had 57 in today's attendance with a total collection of N3115= .

Brother Adedoyin Sola Rotimi continued his teaching on “How to Grow the Lord’s Church” at the Jago congregation.
Brother Matthew Adeyemi, a fellow WBSFUW in South Western state Nigeria, is an evangelist working with the Igbesa congregation in Ogun state. He just phoned me to inform me of the conversion of a WBS student.
