A Word For Wednesday, Hello From Nigeria

So glad you joined us today. It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. A few moments ago I posted A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

Today I am giving you a summary of our time in Nigeria so far. I hope you enjoy the video. I began uploading the video at 10:00 PM Monday night and finished at 2:27 Tuesday afternoon. Wow! Over 16 hours to load.😢😍 However, it seems to have loaded and I am happy about that.

We are having a great trip so far and we are very thankful for the Lord's help. We appreciate you praying for us and we would love for you to continue to pray.

Holy Ghost Sunday Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church

Sunday morning was a combined service of all the Abeokuta branch churches of Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church. They do this once a month on the first Sunday of each month. I am always glad when our visit corresponds with Holy Ghost Sunday.

First, we went to Children's Church for a bit. We had a great time with the children and passed out a little candy.

Then we entered the Holy Ghost Sunday service already in progress. There was a great crowd gathered, a great spirit and a great response to the Word of the Lord.

This a congregation picture below with me included.

This is most of the Pastors plus me in one picture with only one Pastor missing.

Sis. Rebecca and Bro. John's family.

On Sunday evening they had no service. On Holy Ghost Sunday they linger into the afternoon and omit the service that night. I am sure that Bro. Shobanke could have scheduled me at another church, but we were glad to rest. We will be ministering six of the next seven days so the rest was appreciated.

We were back at the hotel by 3:00 PM and I spent most of the evening getting pictures emailed and loaded onto Mile Markers for posting. The wifi signal has been spotty and the power kicked a time or two.

We are having a great time with our dear friends in Nigeria. Thank you for praying for us and thank you for reading.

Final Day of Minister's Conference Conference at Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church

Our normal Weekend Dispatch will be broken into two posts due to the volume of pictures and information.

Saturday was the final day of the Minister's Conference at Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. It was a wonderful conference. I am thankful the Lord helped us.

I was apprehensive about the conference. I was really not sure that I had enough strength to do my duties, but the Lord stood by me and helped me all the way through.

I know that many of you are concerned about my health on this trip. I am happy to tell you that my breathing has been completely fine. I am not as strong as I should be, but I am not struggling to breathe. Hallelujah! Thank you for praying.

It is called a Minister's Conference, but it is actually for church workers of all kinds. Men and Women working in any capacity in all kinds of churches are welcome to come and they normally have people from all over.

It is amazing to watch them come together to hear the Word and to watch the Spirit of the Lord sweep over their lives each morning. It is almost unbelievable that we are privileged to be a part of such an incredible move of God. Praise God!

We captured a few pictures for your viewing enjoyment. I hope you like them. Thank you for stopping in.


In the picture below, I am posing with twins.

This is a picture of me with the same twins in 2018 when they were under one year old.
