I am writing this letter from Nigeria, where I am in the middle of two weeks of meetings. I arrived in Nigeria on October 27, where I preached in Truth Baptist Church and Grace and Glory Baptist Church in Abuja. I then flew down to Port Harcourt to be a part of a Missions Conference hosted by Independent Baptist Church. I was able to teach the pastors on one of the days and preach in the evening services. During the conference, I was able to go to a school and preach to the students. The students listened intently to the Gospel, and at least 30 trusted Christ as their Saviour. To the right is a picture of me with those students. I will be in Ibadan from November 6–8 for a Preachers’ Fellowship and to preach in some more schools. Those receiving this via email, please pray for souls to be saved.
Previous to coming to Nigeria, I was able to return to Argentina after a three-year hiatus. I was able to teach to the students in the Bible college for two weeks. This teaching involved teaching every afternoon and evening (4.5 hours daily) each Monday through Wednesday. To the left are pictures of the two classes of students. I also preached in five different churches, one of which was a brand-new church. I preached the inaugural service, with over 200 people in attendance for the service, and scores were saved. What a blessing it was to be a part of the beginning of a new church. The people from Bethel Baptist Church worked so hard at inviting people and winning people to Christ prior to the service. They deserve all the credit for the wonderful turnout. To the right is a picture of the packed-out auditorium.
God protected Linda and me as we traveled to a variety of churches here in the States. We were in Iowa, Michigan, and North Carolina, preaching in revivals, Missions Conferences, Missions-Emphasis Sundays, and filling in for preachers. Pray as I go to Guatemala November 18–26 for one week of preaching to the Guatemalan military. It is so important that you pray for this trip!
