Dear fellow soldiers of Christ,
Greetings from Nigeria. This year’s Great Workshop 2015 that was held at the campus of the WNCC, Abeokuta, Ogun state was attended by over 300 WBSFUW from West, East, and Northern part of Nigeria.
Registration began on January 27 by brother Doug Wheeler and the real lecture day was Wednesday and Friday. Thursday’s evangelism resulted in a convert.
Brother Ron Pottberg, brother Trent Wheeler, and the organizer, brother Doug Wheeler, did their best to make this year’s workshop another success. I spoke on “The Work of an Evangelist” with other sessions from ministers such as brother Monday John Akpakpan, brother Sylvester Imogoh, and brother Biodun Owolabi, the chief host.
The three-day program came to an end with the distribution of nine thousand five hundred copies of VOTI volumes 78, 80, 81 & 82 to all participants with tracts writing by brother Sylvester Imogoh and Bibles from brother Doug pack in black bag.
On Saturday evening, I drove brother Doug and brother Sylvester and his wife to a one-day WBS seminar at Egbeda town in Egbeda Local Government of Oyo state, where brother Doug taught on “Identification Marks of the New Testament Church” and concluded with a “Step unto Salvation,” while I and brother Kayode Eniafe served as interpreters. A young man was converted as a result the of that seminar.
On Sunday, February 1, 2015 at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation, Ibadan, I served as the moderator and interpreter while brother Doug taught on “The Way of Salvation,” and brother Sylvester Imogoh admonished the church from Matthew 7:7. We were 62 in attendance with a total collection of N7315.
On the evening of February 1, brother Doug taught on “How to be Saved and Remain Saved” at the Oke-Ofa Atipe congregation in Ibadan main town, while I served as his interpreter. Attendance was 55 with the conversion of two young ladies.
Lord willing, brother Doug, brother Sylvester, and I will be speaking at a one-day WBS seminar in Iyana Ipaja, Lagos state between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm before he (brother Doug) flew out of our great country, Nigeria to the USA. Please keep on praying for his (brother Doug) safe arrival.
Thank you for your love and care for the lost souls Africa. May the Lord of blessing continue to bless all our joint effort in Christ name, Amen.
Your co-laborer in Christ 's vineyard,
