Randy reports from Nigeria: “We thank God for the work He continues to do here in Nigeria. I am in the third and final week of teaching at JETS (Jos ECWA Theological Seminary).
"The Evangelical Church Winning All, previously known as the Evangelical Church of West Africa, is one of the largest Christian denominations in Nigeria, with about ten million members. ECWA is a partner church of the international Christian mission organization, Serving In Mission (SIM), formerly Sudan Interior Mission. ECWA was founded in 1954 when the SIM-related churches (initially in Nigeria) came together to form an indigenous body." (Wikipedia)
My partnership with SIM missionaries, who are developing and releasing indigenous leaders into the difficult, yet the “white harvest” of West Africa and beyond. At JETS I have 12 very eager students who want to break out of the strangle hold of contemporary missions and ministry and return to the Word of God for His Plan for His Church.
These 12 are from several denominations, even though the seminary is part of ECWA, and two of these are opening new doors with the key leaders of their denominations in other parts of the country. Lord-willing, I will be back in September to introduce GPHD & GPHC to these new leaders while I do at least two other follow-up meetings and one graduation.
What excites me most about the doors God is opening here is two-fold: First, the people are not about money! They see it and experience it, like other places in Africa, but they do not see this ministry that way. For now, they are willing to sacrifice to get God's Word out in a self-sustaining way. Second, they have the potential to bring the gospel north to the 10/40 Window! For this I pray and give thanks. May He empower many to go to the Unreached and Least Reached. Please pray with me on this.”
