The month of April 2017 was great in my ministry as the effect resulted in sinners coming to the knowledge of Christ, restoration of the backsliders and evangelism campaigns in various villages. A total of Twelve (12) days door to door evangelism campaigns was carried out in different villages including Ikot Akpan Essien were we have a 2 months old new congregation and also to Ikot Akpan Eyo, Obon Odor, Ikot Odiong, Ikot Udo Ossiom and Okoyo/ Uruk Ata were we planted a new congregation last year etc. I also engaged in home Bible study to some prospects families which resulted in some being baptized into Christ as contend in my previous reports to you during the month with pictures.
Two sisters at Ikot Odiong church gave birth to 2 new born babies in April, the church visited their families, prayed and rejoice with them.
The church at Ikot Odiong lost a brother “Okon Ubom” through death and he will be buried on Saturday May 6 on a funeral service that I hope to preach a sermon, also lost a young brother “Essienubong Udeme Josiah” who has long been buried.

Our Nigeria Christian College of Evangelism (NCCE), Ukanafun students and instructors are doing tremendously in the area of evangelism, our lectures continues on and on. We need your prayers to do more using this medium for the furtherance of the kingdom of Christ in my part of Nigeria. The NCCE and WBSET team effort really payoff in my mission of soul winning. A total of five (5) souls put on Christ through baptism in April, 2017 in my hand while Ten (10) others also baptized into Christ through my coworkers which report we got during our WBSET evaluation meeting but there was no picture and I have visited some of them and present Bibles to help their new found faith and also encourage them with the WORD.
