Dear fellow soldiers of Christ ,
Greetings and appreciation for your partnership and brotherly love.
I taught throughout the Sundays in the month of June from 1st Corinthians chapter 16. “Five Principles for Church Finances, God’s Instructions for the Church Today: Love the Brotherhood, Be Benevolent, Seek and Save the Lost.” I taught on “What the Lord’s Money is For” at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation, Ibadan and I also taught Monday through Thursday (June15-18) at SWSE Ibadan main campus during our early morning devotion (5:00am - 6:00am) on “The Secret of Happiness.”
At the campus church, by God’s power, brother Benjamin Okon taught on “VIP” on June 7, brother Adedoyin Sola Rotimi taught on “Ambassador of Christ” on June 14, brother Abraham Idu Yeje (the campus minister) taught on “The Purity of the Church” on June 21, while brother Akinade Oluwaseun taught on June 28 on “The Key to the Kingdom.”

As the result of our continuous evangelism at Jago town, one of SWSE graduates, brother Oladapo Ishmael, brother Kayode S.Eniafe, and brother Adedoyin Sola Rotimi started another congregation of the Lord's church at Jago Isale on June 21, 2015. There were 15 in the first worship.

4TH SEMESTER LECTURES AT SWSE IBADAN MAIN CAMPUS: This fourth semester is the longest, toughest, and most costly semester, due to students teaching practice and several practical presentations by students.
