We praise the Lord for a peaceful election in Nigeria last month which was an answer to prayer. The terrorist group in Nigeria are still a problem in the northeastern part of the country. The Nigerian military with other African military forces are trying to weaken them to some degree of success. But We undoubtedly press on because we know “safety is of the Lord” Proverbs 21:31
We plan to begin planting two churches right when we get there. One in the north and the other in the southwest. The Lord has provided the funds to start erecting the two church buildings. We are grateful for faithful families in separate churches that God has impressed to help us to plant these two churches. Pray for Pastor Abel and Pastor Oladibu for their safety and health and that their ministries will be very effective against the false teachings that is prevalent in their communities.
The container has finally left for Nigeria, please pray that God will give us favor when we begin the clearing process. Pray that it won’t cost us more than what we have budgeted for.
As we finally approach the end of our furlough, I would like to thank the Lord for safety through out the year. We appreciate all the Pastors that gave us the opportunity to share our ministry in their churches. We traveled over 48,000 miles, for a total of 67 meetings. We leave for Nigeria Sunday April 26th to begin our seventh year in Nigeria. Thank you for the prayers, support, and encouragement through the years.
In closing, here are some things we would like prayer for:
Good health Safety Clearing Container National pastors’ daily needs
More souls to be saved New church’s growth Strength for my wife
For the sake of more souls,
Missionary Yina Fasinro……..your missionary family to Nigeria, West Africa
