We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.  We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1Thessalonians 1:2-3)

The amazing grace of the Master, Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit, be with all of you. (2 Corinthians 13:14 The Message)

May the Word of Christ continue to multiply throughout Africa through these beautiful ladies.

In Nigeria, nationwide interdenominational movements, more than in most nations, have made a deep impact on specific sections of the community. They have had a huge influence in discipling and training Christian young people. In secondary schools there is considerable opposition and trials in the three northern regions, often including bloody violent attacks, yet a great harvest is being won. We pray that Christian teachers, advisors and student leaders may be encouraged and strengthened. Christian students face many challenges – temptations to immorality and unethical paths to success, false teaching from “Christian” sects and pressure from Muslims. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
