Nigeria 2017 – The Team Has Arrived
Glory to God! Jim and Pastor David arrived safely in Lagos yesterday right on time. Everything went perfectly, Jim said.
Here is a picture of Pastor David sitting with Obi, Pastor Louis, and Good News at the Baptist House in Lagos. They will spend the night there. God bless Ruby, the woman who runs the Baptist House. She works hard to provide clean beds and good food for them to eat. Those beautiful smiles are the result of each of their surprise in receiving a small gift we brought to them. Each received a brightly colored polo shirt. Oh what joy to bless those precious brothers in Christ.
Today they will all be driving to Benin City. As I mentioned the travel from place to place in Nigeria is the most dangerous part of the trip. They will be leaving very early in the morning today, around 5:30 am or so, which is about 12:30 am our time. The journey can take anywhere from 4-7 hours depending on the traffic and road blocks.
Please be praying for safe travels today and that God would blind the eyes of the enemy as these roads are filled with bandits and thieves etc. May God’s angel armies surround them and go before them covering them and protecting them in Jesus name. Holy Spirit bless them with wisdom, and discernment as to where to go and what to do even how to respond. Praying that souls be saved even though this journey as Pastor Louis is an anointed evangelist.
“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the father in heaven”
Matthew 5:16 They will be teaching at some churches in Benin City this evening after their arrival. Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphant procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of HIM. For we are to God the aroma of Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of HIM. To one we are the smell of death to the other the fragrance of life”
2 Corinthians 2:14-17 I can only imagine the joy of the journey conversations…How wonderful for them to be together again. The spirit of God is so alive in these men they just pour out the spirit of God in every word.
Thank you again and again for all your prayers they bring heaven to earth and the power of God in miracles and protection, favor and grace.
Bless you always,
