Dear Friend in Christ,

Greetings in Jesus name and may this letter finds you blessed in Christ. I am writing from West Africa and it is a blessing getting to you in the other part of the world. It is my prayer that you become a friend of mine and the local church here. By His grace I am a Believer bought and washed by the Blood of Jesus Christ. I am married with three children. I am a pastor of a local church and it was founded in the 2013 . I gave my life to Christ in 1987 when I was still in the high school at Zaria. A campus fellowship student by name Segun was my room mate at school and his life of faithfulness unto Christ and his prayer and teaching me the Bible led me to Christ.This Brother told me then that he sensed that God was going to use me for His cause.

I was never ready to hear that because my dream or thought was never in the ministry but to finish my studies and get a nice job. Five years after school and already working I started having the stronger urge and sensing that God was calling me but I kept on putting it off my heart because my job and life was sweet to me and I felt I needed nothing else. One day a guest speaker was ministering in our church and he singled me out in a crowd of over a thousand and told me that God has called me to the ministry and I cannot hide. After he left I told my pastor that I have accepted and my pastor and other elders of the church prayed with me. I immediately joined and headed the evangelical outreach of the church and I saw many coming to Christ in the outreach. I let go of my job in 2010 and returned to my State of Origin. I joined a small local church and was assisting the pastor as the second pastor. In March 25th 2013 a pastor of a little church of about five families in my area walked up to me telling me that he is leaving the state to his home state where the Lord has asked him to go and start His work. He said he has been praying for over a month that the Lord has asked him to tell me to take over the little church. I have not had a relationship with this pastor before now so it amazed me.

He asked me to pray to ask the Lord. I did prayed and also told my pastor of this development. He prayed with me and three days later he confirmed that God has asked me to take over the church. We are in need of 31 Giant Print Bibles the King James Version and 4 Study Bibles. We are praying to hear good news from you soon.

Thank you for considering this request. And as you help to meet this kingdom need the Lord will bless your finance and family abundantly.

If you send the bibles through post office a registered postage of these bibles will get to us safely.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 "Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days"

The Lord bless you and keep you in His perfect love.

In Him Only,
