We have just arrived from Nigeria to begin our first furlough in the States  after 2 ½ years in Nigeria . We have had a great time serving the Lord by ministering to the National pastors and establishing new Independent Baptist churches in Nigeria . To God be the glory we have helped in the starting of 2 churches and both are doing very well.  Both churches have purchased their own land properties, and one church has just completed their building.

At times many of these pastors go to great lengths to find a building to rent for their church services to then get a notice from their landlord forcing them to vacate the building at once. With  no where to go, they begin to scramble for a site to hold their next church service. Here are letters from both pastors expressing their gratitude:   

The pastor and entire members of Independent Baptist Church Iresa-Pupa(left) appreciate your prayers and financial support you rendered for the purchase of our land, building structure and the roofing of our church building. May the Lord bless you in abundance. Pastor Olawumi  Ige (back row left)

Dear supporting churches, Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank God and you for supporting us through missionary Yinka Fasinro.Through him  on march 17th, 2010 you gave us $1,933.00 (290,000.00 Naira) for buying land for our new church. We praise God for the life of missionary Yinka Fasinro for his faithfulness to the work of God.The little savings we had as a church was used to start building a structure on the new land. Our believe in God is that God  who bought the land for us will surely complete the structure for us in his time. Thanks.May God bless his churches and his ministers too. Amen.Yours in his service.

Pastor Aremu Kolawole/ Trinity Independent Baptist church

 We are missing the people  there already  but  it is  neccessary  to report back to our supporting churches  to personally give thanks and share the blessings we are experiencing on the mission field.

 In closing, please keep us in your prayers for safety and open opportunities to present our ministry Nigeria .  As a reminder, we are planning to ship a container  full of printed materials for the national pastors. It’s a blessing to see several  pastors already responding to this great need. But We still need:

1.        Thousands of Gospel tracts

2.       New/used Study Materials. ( We are seriously praying that God would burden hearts  to  help  to  put  together a “pastors box ” for one or more of  the  100 pastors  here in Nigeria . Each Pastor could use a new  study Bible, Exhaustive  Strongs  Concordance, a  commentary, Bible Dictionary, 3×5 cards, and good books.  Would  you prayerfully  consider  your church  sponsoring a box for a national pastor?)

3.       Used clothes and shoes for  adults , children and babies

 Thank you again for the prayers  and the financial support you have given to us.  I know the Lord will bless you greatly for your sacrifice.  We wouldn’t have been able to do all that we have done if it had not been for churches  like yours.  We have made a difference in the lives of the Independent Baptist  national Pastors and their churches through your support. God bless!

For the sake of more souls,  

Missionary Yinka Fasinro………missionary family to Nigeria , West Africa
