Beloved in Christ Jesus,
Greetings from Nigeria. We thank you all for your partnership and support in all ways.
The evenings of January 18-22 were set aside for practical Homiletics by both year one and two students of the Bible Institute. Our year one students spoke on subject-based sermons, while the year two students centered on textual sermons. The thirty-six students of SWSE /BVBIN will be sitting for their second semester examinations Monday January 25-29, 2016.
The successful students in the year one class will graduate with a SWSE Diploma, while those from year two will graduate with the BVBI International certificate in August 2016.
Beloved brother Rapheal Adeyehun, a graduate of SWSE Ibadan and one of the WBSFUW in Ondo state, reported the conversion of another three souls as the result of WBS seminar of January 7 where brother Doug Wheeler was the guest speaker. Brother Matthew Adeyemi, another WBSFUW in Ogun / Ondo state, reported the conversion of another soul at the Odosida congregation of Ondo state.
Also, the mass evangelism conducted by students and staff of our Bible Institute with the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation - Ibadan on January 23 resulted in the conversion of a young lady of fifteen years old named Sarah Audu. To God be the glory!
Brother Makinde Emmanuel, a graduate of BVBIN taught on “Keys to a Hapy Life in Year 2016” at the Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation in Ibadan on January 17, while brother Destiny Elijah, one of our year-two students taught today on “How to Live for God Successfully in Year 2016.” He centered his teaching on Abraham and Paul, the apostle.
I taught on “The Secrets of a Victorious Life” from January 18-22 during our morning devotion at Doug Wheeler's event center SWSE/BVBIN Butubutu campus - Ibadan.
Brethren, our kiddies academy is in progress. We just finished the first step of our registration with the Ministry of Education and, Lord willing, the second step begins in April 2016.
Brethren, we are glad to have people like you in partnership with us! May the Lord of blessing continue to bless our work together in Jesus Christ’s name.
I remain yours in His grace, as a servant,
Makinde Ebenser ( Minister)
