Mojima Etokudo, April 2021

Greetings to you and yours at the Shackle Island Church of Christ, pray this April 2021 report meets you well.

The adverse effects of the COVID 19 pandemic and insecurity in some parts of our country is tremendous, but we give God the glory for growing the church in the midst of all this.

Early April, as my children returned home from school due to holidays, it was a vacation time having rest and fellowship with my physical family. 

A soul baptized into Christ at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpa Idem, she is the wife of Odudu Mfon who was baptized during our Bible Seminar at Ikot Akpa Idem on January 25, 2021. Glory be to God the seed planted during our Bible Seminars is yeilding fruit. God bless the Shackle Island Church for supporting this mission.

Two souls also baptized into Christ at Church of Christ, Ikot Odiong (Unwana and Enomfon) which I earlier reported to you. They both received Bibles and Hymnals.

One erring brother was restored to faith at Ikot Odiong church.

I and some brethren at Church of Christ in Ikot Odiong went on Evangelism at Obon Odor village and an erring Brother was restored to faith there. Obon Odor village is where we converted an Assemblies of God denomination to Church of Christ in 2013.

My wife led sisters from Ikot Odiong church to Christian Women Gospel Meeting at Church of Christ Nto obo.

I worshipped at Church of Christ at Akpautong village in Esit Eket Local Government Area,it was great preaching the Word there. Some who accepted the Word but needed to study more about the Church requested for Bible which I gave to them.

April 29 is my birthday, and the 2021 edition was dedicated to Evangelism, Twenty (20) Evangelists from our Ukanafun WBS Evangelism mark this day with door to door knocking at Ikot Odiong village and it’s neighborhood between 10am to 4pm preaching Christ to the lost souls, following up with those who have been preached to in the past.

Some responded to our invitation to visit our worship service but not yet obeyed the gospel. Pray for fruitful outcome.

The earthly passage of our beloved brother and Preacher Ray Frizzell, Jnr gave us a great concern. The church at Ikot Odiong holds a special session of prayers for his earthly family and the Spiritual family at the Shackle Island Church of Christ.

 The Ukanafun WBS Evangelism Team during our evaluation meeting was saddened on hearing the news, prayers and words of tributes was offered.

Our Bible tutorial center NCCE àlso prayed commiting the church at Shackle Island and Ray Frizzell Jnr families to God after hearing his achievement for Christ in the kingdom.

I have personally been mentioning you, the entire Shackle Island Church of Christ and brother Ray Frizzell, Jnr families in our prayers. God bless you and yours in Christ Jesus name.

It’s farming season in my part of the world, and I have planted cassava and vegetable leaves in my little farm to support the family.

Pray for this month of May , our mission, health and the rising security Challenges in Nigeria.

In Christian Love and Service,

Mojima Etokudo
