Greetings,                                                                             End of year 2018 Newsletter
I want to thank you for praying and supporting us through out last year. February 1, 2019, marked our eleventh year as missionaries here in Nigeria. Because of your prayers and support, it has made it much easier to plant churches for the national Pastors.
To God be the glory for another great year. Last year we held several crusades at universities in the eastern part of the country where we saw over 1500 profess salvation in Christ. We also distributed Bibles to each convert. As a result of the program, the Lord led us to help plant/establish another church which brings our total to 10 churches since 2008. Four years ago, Pastor George Kamalu had started Trinity Baptist Church, Aba at his house which grew to 24 people. Pastor Brad Brandon/First Bible Baptist church of Plainville, CT was instrumental in erecting a larger church building for them which was a huge answer to prayer.
Pastor Brandon visited and preached at their first service January 12th 2019 which was an exciting day for the church. On the first Sunday, we saw 101 in attendance with several professing salvation in Christ. What a blessing to finally have a larger church building for many to attend to hear the truth of God’s word.       YouTube Video https://youtu.be/hQ6TijmX5Jg

We heard many give testimonies during and after the crusades. I would like to share several with you.

Soludo Eziaku – This 10 year old girl from Guilford Memorial in Aba was in tears when Pastor George met her a day after the crusade that was held in her school. She was disappointed that she missed the preaching and the Bible distribution which we gave to the new converts. The next day at the church, Pastor George was able to lead her to Christ. After giving her the Bible, with joy in her heart, she ran home. The next day, 2 elderly couples came to the church wanting to hear the gospel. Pastor George was also able to lead them to Christ, and they also got their own copy of God’s word. Pastor George found out later that it was Soludo’s testimony that led the couple to Pastor George for salvation. A few hours later Soludo’s older sister came to Pastor George for salvation and was also given a Bible afterwards. Soluda’s parents visited the church the following Sunday with 5 other family members, and all 7 of them trusted Christ. It’s amazing that as a result of one little girl’s testimony, her family and neighbors trusted Christ. Praise the Lord!!!
I would also like to share some letters we received from students who attended the crusades.

Letter #1– “Dear Sir/ma, a letter of appreciation. I am pleased and filled with a lot of gratitude for the gift you offered to me today being the 14th day of November 2018. You really touched so many lives today including mine. I pray that God will continue to bless and protect you, Amen. I thank you for bringing this good news to me….. Yours truly, Nwamadu Nmujomg Guilford memorial, Aba”

Letter #2– “ Dear sir, I humbly appreciate your effort in trying to reach the younger generation with the gospel of life and truth and I have benefited so much from the BEAMS Outreach. Through the ministration of the man of God he was able to convince me of the danger of sin, the consequence and penalty of sin, he was also able to let me know that God is ever willing to accept us even with our short comings. This day I gave my life to Christ…….Yours faithfully, Nwagur Fauwni Guilford Memorial, Aba”

Letter #3– “Letter of appreciation. I thank the Baptist church for their preaching that saved my life and other lives in my school. I also thank you for the gift of the Bible you gave us as you continue your good work may God almighty bless you. Thanks and bye. Yours faithfully, Kalu Patricia Guilford Memorial,Aba”

Letter #4- “Dear Evangelist Fasinro and family, with hearts full of gratitude we want to use this medium to say thank you for allowing God to use you and your family to bless us. We were encouraged and we pray we don’t recover from the encounter we had. We cannot forget to thank you for the Bibles and books and the souls won for Christ, the transformations, the revivals resulting from the crusade…….Yours faithfully Nwangu Joan, School of Nursing Amachara, Aba

Please pray for Pastor Orus and his family who started a church in Ghana 10 years ago. Bible Independent Baptist Church Kasoa, Ghana is currently having church services in a school building. For years now they have been encountering opposition from the school authorities. Because they have asked the church to leave, he has been searching for an adequate place he can rent for his church. The new location is demanding them to pay up-front 2 years of rent before they can move in which is normal everywhere. The church has saved $3000 and they are in need of another $3000 as soon as possible. Please join us in prayer and if God would impress on your heart to help, it would be a great answer to their prayers.
Finally, please pray for us as we will be traveling to the States to take Benjamin to Bible College this fall. We’ll be in the country May 9 2019-September 30 2019 Lord willing. We would also love to visit your church to give a quick ministry update if possible. Please let us know as soon as possible in order to better schedule our trips within the country.

Please pray: God’s power, much grace for Vanessa as she home schools, safety and good health.

Greetings, October 11, 2018
I would like to thank Bonners Ferry Baptist Church, Bonners Ferry, ID for sending Pastor Nevin Neal their senior Pastor to visit us last month. This church has been supporting us for more than 10 years even while we were on deputation. We were glad to finally see him here in Nigeria for the first time. He was with us for 12 days and he preached 5 times in Churches and villages. Many decisions were made including salvation decisions in every service. One of the Pastors he preached for was Pastor John Oyedele from Freedom Baptist church. The church was very happy and appreciative for the visit and message. On that day also he held a baptismal service where he baptized 13 people.
I thank God for Pastor Neal and Bonners Ferry Baptist church for their love for world-wide missions.
I also want to thank God for all our supporting churches that pray for us and have supported us through the years as well. We would love for you to also prayerfully consider visiting us as well in the future. It would definitely be a blessing to you to see what your support has done for the people of Nigeria.

Greetings,                                                                                                                      Update August 18, 2018
The Lord gave us an opportunity to travel to the east and I had the unique privilege to preach in 3 different universities and 2 churches. We faced the obstacles of bad roads, flat tire and rainy weather but I was still able to preach.
Over a thousand students and faculty members heard the gospel for the week and we saw 709 trust Christ as their saviour. Each convert was given a Bible which was a huge blessing to them because it is very difficult to find a KJV Bible in stores.
In spite of the great influence of witchcraft, and ritualistic practices on all university campuses, the Holy Spirit’s power was so evident during the week. For example Alexa led a young lady to Christ who was often bothered by hearing Demonic voices. After trusting Christ, she no longer hears voices and sleeps better at night.
At the first university, 85 students professed salvation in Christ. After the service ended, many of the students returned back to the church on their own and were praying, and crying out to God for 2 hours. During the week, one of the converts was burdened to take the gospel to his village. As a result, he was able to lead three souls to Christ and was bringing them to church the following Sunday. What a blessing to see this young man’s burden for his village. A school cook abruptly left the service for the kitchen where her 2 daughters were and brought them to the service to hear the preaching. During the invitation, all three including the mother got saved. A young man stood up to make his decision public as he was giving up singing worldly music for Christ honoring songs. God also gave us an opportunity to lead the hotel manager and 7 of his staff members to Christ. A young man who worked at a grocery store got saved by reading a tract Vanessa gave to him. He came to church on Sunday excited for the new life he has now in Christ. Although it was raining heavily, this new convert walked several blocks to church for the evening service.
At the second university, over 600 students gathered in one room to hear the gospel message and about 480 accepted Christ as their personal savior. Many people were so eager to hear the message that they were standing in the hallway and outside. There was so much joy and excitement especially when they received a copy of God’s word.
Pastor George Kamalu who organized the meetings in the universities has been meeting in his house for church services for 4 years. The capacity of his church “building” is a 24 seat room. We felt the Lord leading us to partner with him to plant our 10th church. There is a great need now to disciple the new converts and a place to train them for the Lord. God not only answered our prayer right away but also confirmed the direction we were taking. The Lord has already provided the funds to start this new church plant. What a blessing for these new converts to have a bigger building to worship and to grow in every week. Pray for Pastor Kamalu/ Trinity Baptist Church who also wants to train these new converts who have showed great interest for the ministry. A former student who was also instrumental with making this program possible has been called to preach the gospel. He will begin training when the building is completed. Praise the Lord!!
Finally, the crusades caught the attention of the state commissioner of education who is in support of the program. Our prayer is to ask for a letter to present to all universities for future programs. God did more than we could ever ask or think. There was definitely a moving of the Holy Spirit in lives and our prayer is that it continues for a long time. Thank you again for all your prayers. God bless!
