Mission Report by Pastor E. Ade Shobanke

Yesterday we posted our review of 2012. This post is a report of our Nigeria trip sent by Pastor Shobanke.

   Greetings to my Brothers and Sisters in the USA,

   Evangelist Davy Boggs, his wife Sister Kelly and Brother Gary Lockwood arrived in Nigeria on Thursday 29th November 2012. They were warmly welcome by Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church to Nigeria. 

   Brother Boggs preached  a 1-day revival in each of my two church branches in Abeokuta. God mightily touched many lives on Friday 30th and Saturday 1st December 2012 in each of the branches. 
   On Sunday 2nd December 2012, he preached in my main church and the whole congregation was richly blessed.

   We conducted a 3-day gospel crusade at the frontage of our new church at Osara Road, Gbonogun, Abeokuta, Nigeria from Sunday 2nd through Tuesday 4th December 2012. Brother Boggs preached the gospel of power in the 3-day crusade. People came forward to the altar and prayed through. Many souls were saved and some received healing. One policeman testified to Brother Boggs of his salvation.

   Before we started the crusade, we were not prepared to start service at the new church. But the last day of the crusade I announced the starting of church service the following Sunday. I did that by faith in God. Why? The church building was not yet completed, no doors, no windows, no ceiling, no electricity and there were no chairs for people to sit. 

   Praise the Lord, on Thursday 6th December, 2012, God used Bro. Davy Boggs and his ministry to buy sixty(60) chairs for the new church. The second miracle was that God used Bro. Boggs and Bro. Lockwood to give us $800.00 to complete the office of the church to keep the chairs and other equipment secure after each service.

   The first service in the new church branch was made possible by God on Sunday 9th December, 2012. Praise the Lord. Twenty-seven (27) newly converted souls from the 3-day crusade attended the first service. There were Forty-six (46) total in attendance. The first Bible study on Tuesday had Thirty-five (35) there.

   The Ministers Conference was held from Thursday 6th through Saturday 8th December at our main church. Ministers and Christian Workers from different denominations atttended. Many came and prayed through at the altar after each day.

   On Sunday 9th December 2012, we traveled to Ibadan, Oyo State of Nigeria and Bro. Boggs preached at Landmark Christ Mission, Bro Kuye’s Church. The people were richly blessed.

   The last day of his visit, they visited our christian school. He preached and prayed for the pupils and staff of the school.

   We appreciate God for using Bro Boggs to start the first service with 27 new converts from the 3-day Gospel Crusade. I appreciate Evangelist Davy & Sis. Kelly Boggs and Bro. Gary Lockwood for their visit to Nigeria.

   Thank you, we are praying for you.

Yours in Christ
Pastor E. Ade Shobanke
