Reports reaching us from some of the recipients of the VOTI publications ,most especially Volume 100 & 101 shows the conversions of over 100 souls and edification of thousands as the result of this free distribution among the churches in Nigeria.
AJAGBA CONGREGATION RESTORED AGAIN:
The Lord's Church in Ode-Ajagba town,Ondo State now restored for the second time within 15 years. The Church was restored in year 2005 by we ministers of God in Western States of Nigeria under the leadership of Bro.Paul Akinwale but went to apostasy after the relocation of their third preacher to Asejire-Ondo State. Now,with the help of some Ondo state indegenes and the BVBIN & SWSE IBADAN ,we have now restored the Lord's church in Ode-Ajagba town. One of our graduates, Bro.Samuel Olorode is now serving there with the little financial support from our Evangelism allocation from early September 2019 .
ABOUT A STUDENT:
Bro.Imbia Maxfied Elangwe is from one of the English speaking cities of Cameroon, Weme Nbonge ,SW Region. He is one of our year-1 students. His mission is to become an evangelist in the South Western Region of Cameroon after his two years training.
With the loan of N800,000, we were able to purchase an Evangelism bus(pictures attached) worth N1,500,000 from Owode-Titun congregation, Ogun State to foster our Evangelism / Gospel campaign in both rural and urban areas of the South Western States of Nigeria on September 16,2019.
Now that the Lord has blessed us with a fairly used Bus for evangelism and gospel campaign. The school will be working with Egbeda town congregation, Egbeda Local Government Area of Oyo State on October 4 & 5 in evangelizing Egbeda town and follow up on some of the erring brethren in and around Egbeda.
Also, in the evening of October 8,we shall be surveying Ajia town,the Head Quarter of Ona-Ara Local Government Area with the hope of planting the Lord's Church in that town in late November 2019 Lord's willing.
We thank you all for your moral and financial supports toward the growth of the Lord's Church in Africa most especially in Nigeria. May the Lord keep on blessings all we do for His name in Jesus Christ name Amen.
I remain yours in His Grace as a servant,
MAKINDE Ebenezer Olufemi
