Newsletter – Fall 2007
Praise the Lord we have officially closed this wonderful chapter of Deputation! After 2 years of being on deputation, we were able to see over 250 saved, raise much needed support, and trusting that the other churches will support us as well. In our last newsletter, we gave a list of things we needed for the mission field. Many churches and individuals have given towards those needs. I want to take this time to thank you for your sacrificial giving. We are still praying and trusting the Lord for the provision to ship our container at the end of January which is also our new departing date.
The Lord gave me an opportunity to travel to pick up some used printed materials for the ministries in Nigeria. I was able to get 500 hymnals, several books, and bibles. We are also thankful for the 1000 Bibles donated by BEAMS Ministries. We are still in need of used books like concordances, good commentaries, and dictionaries that you no longer have need of. The Nigerian pastors will greatly appreciate any of the study materials that we are able to gather because printed materials are hard to come by.
Dear Preacher,This is brother John Justwell Abili a bondslave of Jesus Christ. I got your letter dated 9th May, 2007 on the 11th May, 2007. I am highly excited to hear from you especially national preachers of Independent Baptist Churches who share the same burden that I have for my people Nigerians…… Brother Yinka, the area we might need your help if possible is printed materials.Our library, Bible Institute Students and myself we need books. Books or materials on sound doctrine do not easily come by here in Nigeria.
Dear Mr. Yinka,
Calvary greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Amen.We are doing very well at Fundamental Bible Baptist Church Jikwoi FCT Abuja.Pastor Holmes told me about your visit, but I was unable to meet with you. We will really be glad to have you come to visit our young, but very bold church. Do let us know the next time you hope to visit. So far, I think you are the first and only Independent Baptist Evangelist in Nigeria . We will be praying and looking forward to seeing you.
The above are 2 of the letters we have received from Nigerian pastors.Please continue to pray for us as we begin to load our container and prepare for our January Departure.
Thank you again for your prayers and financial support as missionaries.
Ev. Yinka Fasinro….your missionary family to Nigeria
