There was also a WBS seminars and public preaching at village squares and market places both day and night as well as going from door to door preaching Christ and His church and home Bible studies to denominational leaders on their request.
The effect of our labour for the Lord this month are as follows:
* 16 Souls baptized into Christ.

It was also great on Sunday 8, July to preach to about 300 worshipers at Church of Christ Obong Ntak on the topic “GROWING IN CHRIST” , the church elders showed gratitude and support my transportation with Nigerian Naira worth about $5. And in the afternoon same day I preach to the graduating students of Obong Christian High School on the topic “WHAT’S NEXT?”.
Again, on July 20 I led the inauguration of the Essien Udim WBS Evangelism Team at Church of Christ, Adiasim Ikot Akpan Ossom and did a training session for the brethren on Rural Evangelism Method and strategies, the use of WBS lessons for effective evangelism.
