Time to Build
AFM has taken on the mission of helping a small church in Nigeria finish its building. For several years we have been supplying them with Bibles. God provided the funds and construction has begun!
We rejoice over the generosity ofGod's people!
And Father permitting we hope to be there to help them dedicate this building for the spread of the Gospel!
Six years ago We met Pastor Godwin an African refugee who was ministering to African refugees in Sicily. Fast forward a number of years and Pastor Godwin had relocated to a small town outside of Florence Italy. We continued to provide him with Bibles for the refugees that are still arriving in Italy.
He also asked if we could supply him with some Bibles for him to distribute to believers and seekers in his hometown in Nigeria That is how we began a relationship with the Firm Foundation Baptist Church of Ovbiogie Nigeria. In the past few months, we became burdened to help this church in a more "concrete" way!
AFM is not shut down due to the travel restrictions
caused by the worldwide pandemic, we are simply
ministering via the internet.
We have been led to believe that in 2022
we will be able to once again visit in person
with some of our partners in other parts of the world.
We are teaching via Zoom. Praying with groups around the
world via Google Meet. And we are engaged in fellowship with
believers via WhatsApp and Signal.
This month we are launching our first all-day seminar
via the internet with one of our partners in Latin America.
We will be teaching the theology of Worship
as it pertains to individual discipleship and corporate worship.
The Lord willing this will be an ongoing monthly ministry.
With another ministry, we are in discussions to minister via interactive
media in one halfway around the world and will involve training future pastors.
As these projects come online we will need funds to provide
equipment lear and perhaps internet access for difficult-to-reach
areas. We will bring our needs to you for your prayerful
consideration when we have confirmed needs.
Praise the Lord we raised the funds to provide
a building for our Nigerian brothers and
there was enough for them to use some funds
for the home of their future permanent home!
