Mojima Etokudo, May 2023

Greetings to you, my Brothers and Sisters at the Shackle Island Church of Christ. Pray this note finds you well.

The month of May 2023 was very challenging in Nigeria following money scarcity in the banks, political transition, Government policies that raises the price of petrol and scarcity in the fuel station which is still ongoing and insecurity in some parts of the country. We lost a soul through death at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Eyo. In all of this, God blesses our little efforts in Christ Kingdom.

May 4:, I and my wife Ekaette went on follow-up mission on WBS internet Students at Eket Local Government Area still in Akwa Ibom State, they were referred to me by Doug Wheeler/ Jenifer Watson and I keep on teaching this family the Bible through Telephone in time past, on this day when we meet them for the first time, the husband and wife Mr Monday Evans and Mrs Edith Evans both baptized into Christ and they were introduce to a congregation at Eket area. Both of them receives Bible, Baptismal Certificates and Gospel tracts to help them study the Scripture since they were of the denominational church. See attached photos #1

May 6:, I was an officiating minister at the funeral service of our late sister Roseline Ukut at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Eyo. Many denominational and Community leaders was in attendance and listen to our sermon.

May 7:, During a follow – up mission at Church of Christ, Ikot Akpan Essien Village, a Soul obeyed the Gospel and baptized into Christ.

May 20:, I and our Ukanafun WBS Evangelism Team went on Evangelism at Ikot Inyang 1 and they were many prospects, we hope to revisit the area for a follow-up Lord willing.

May 20:, My wife “Ekaette Mojima”  was a guest speaker at the Women’s Gospel Seminar on the topic ” WILL YOUR ANCHOR HOLD?. Over 200 Christian women gathered at Church of Christ meeting place at Ikot Abasi Ikot Inyang in Oruk Anam Local Government Area. She reports of many questions arising from her presentation. 

May 23 to 26:,  I was one of the guest speakers at the four (4) days Preachers and Church Leaders Seminar at the Nigerian Christian Bible College (NCBC) Ukpom Abak on the theme ” BRACING THE PULPIT FOR CONTEMPORARY TIMES”. It was impactful, my wife was in attendance.

May 28:, I worshipped and preached the sermon at Church of Christ Ndot Ikot on the topic ” RUNNING THE RACE”and from Hebrews 12:1-2,  four (4) Souls obeyed the Gospel and each of them receives a copy of Bible. 

* Also, at Ndot Church, Twenty Seven (27) Children in the Children Bible Class receives New Testament each to help them grow with the Word.

A total of 31 copies of Bibles from our new Bible stock was given out on Sunday. Thank you for providing the Bible and Hymnals for those in need in Nigeria.

Thank you for your prayers and kind support, God bless you and yours in Christ Jesus name.

I need more of your prayers for our country Nigeria as some Government policies is making life difficult and also for the new President that was sworn in on May 29,2023 to lead with the fear of God though he is a Moslem.

Know that my prayers go with you and yours daily.

In Christian Love and Service,
