Beloved in Christ,
Grace, peace, and mercy be multiplied unto you all from God our Father and from Jesus Christ our Sustainer and Hope. I taught on The Three Pillars of Every Successful Home (Gen.2:24 cf. Eph.5:21-31) at a marriage feast of a young brother and a sister held at Oniyere congregation Ibadan, Oyo state on Saturday, July 30 and the ceremony was graced by over 600 brethren, friends, relations, and well wishers .
On Sunday, July 31 at Onikokoro / Gbongudu congregation (Ibadan) one of our BVBIN students named Lawrence Dada taught on The Unity of The Church while a SWSE student named Moses Bamidele admonished the church on Working Together (Exo.17:9-13) while I led in songs and communion . On Monday and Tuesday, August 1 & 2, we continue our house-to-house evangelism at Butubutu village under the leadership of our campus minister, Bro. Abraham Idu Yeje, which finally resulted into conversion of two young man named Blessing and Dennis. These two converts were blessed with a Bible each and WBS materials on I have just begun the race and How To Get To Heaven?
