Beloved in Christ Jesus,
Complements of the season! We just printed ten thousand WBS lessons and tracts for our end of the years program that, by God's grace, will commence on December 19, 2015 through January 9, 2016 in Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ondo, Lagos, Kwara, Kogi, Edo, and Taraba states.The printed tracts will be used with other Mission Printing tracts during this exercise.
Both the students and staff of the preaching school (BVBIN-Ibadan) are all set for the end of the year exercise and our old wagon (school van) is also in better shape for this western trip.
I will speak on “The Ancient Landmark” on December 19, 2015 at the Felele congregation where brother Dele Shotola is ministering in the evening open-air, while all of us will be busy seeking for lost souls in the morning time. On December 24-26, I will serve as one of the speakers at our Youth Retreat where I will speak on “Determine What To Become In Life,” on December 26 at 10:00 am, while speaking on “The Authority of The Bible” during our open-air Bible Lectureship of December 25, 2015. On January 4-8, 2016 I will work with brother Doug Wheeler in Oyo and Ondo states conducting WBS seminars.
Brethren, I taught on the “Secret of Security” (Psalm 112:7 cf. Dan. 3) on November 29 at the campus church in Butubutu and at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation on December 6 on “The Battlefield,” while I will teach on “Man's Journey From This World To Heaven” (Exodus 25-30) on the coming Lord's day of December 13 and 20, 2015 at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation - Ibadan.
We evangelized the Asejire congregation in Osun state on December 5 and two souls were reported to be converted by brother Kayode Solomon Eniafe on Sunday of December 6. Lord willing, we shall evangelize the Parainuewe area of Ibadan on Saturday, December 12, 2015.
Brother Abiola Joseph reported the conversion of a soul and restoration of two at the Agege congregation in Lagos state where he is ministering as one of their evangelists on December 6. He will team up with brother Joseph Abiodun Dairo, brother Ezekiel Okorougo, brother Mfon Etim,brother Okoro Chinyere, brother Matthew Odey, and our Lagos campus students to evangelize Ipaja, Baruwa, Okeodo, Maryland, and Ikorodu town of Lagos state and Sango/Ota in Ogun state in this month of December 2015.
Classes continue as usual at BVBIN-Ibadan main campus until December 23 when we hope to break for an intensive end-of-the-year program and we re-open Lord willing on January 4, 2016.
Reports from brother Isaac Olaniyan show that he is still working actively with the preacher of the Iyana Ilogbo congregation in Ogun state to nurture that congregation into maturity. Brother Ezekiel Okorougo is still using the Mission Printing tracts / booklets and WBS lessons in reaching the lost in Ipaja town and environ, Lagos state, while brother Matthew Rowland is not left out in his campaign for Christ at Akure,Ondo state.
