We are excited about what God is doing in Nigeria and blessed to be with David Omih and the emerging TC Ministries in Nigeria. From Lagos to Ibadan, Jos, Kaduna, Abuja, and Otukpo, traveling across Nigeria, climaxing in Enugu with a TC Nigeria National choir and ministry in the Word at Peniel, the Nigeria General Council of the Assemblies of God.
This whirlwind mission will carry us to 7 cities and a projected 32 meetings in 24 days. Following this, Cathy will come home for Thanksgiving. I will continue to Kenya as I join Mission SOS and Kenya TC for ministry to the Maasai in Kilgoris. Thank you for your prayers .Though I will not be home to Celebrate Thanksgiving with my family or partners, I want you to know will be praying for you Kenya! We are thankful to have the best Ministry Partners in the world.
I first met and ministered to David Omih at Brooklyn Teen Challenge as he was preparing for international ministry. I visited David in Nigeria at Bro Wilkerson's request in January 2013 as he pioneered the first Nigeria TC Center in Jos, (pictured right) and then Cathy and I with an incredible graduate team from Brooklyn Teen Challenge Ministry Institute. The ministry had been growing in Jos and now, David is working closely with Africa Regional Director, Dr. Jacobus Nomdoe, to raise up Centers across Nigeria. From the street to the church, from Pastors and Workers Training to University seminars, Radio TV and the Assemblies of God General Council, pray for GOD to use us to move in hearts and lives.
 
 
NIGERIA NATIONAL CHOIR AT A/G Gen-Council

I am so proud of the TC Nigeria National Choir- what a wonderful time of ministry in music and the WORD for nearly 8,000 AG Nigerian A/G Pastors sharing the burden to transform lives from Addiction to FREEDOM. Not just Rehab-more than Recovery- TRANSFORMATION at the sub-atomic, spiritual, molecular level though ! II Cor 5:17

 
 
THREAT ASSESMENT: Illicit drug supply as well as drug use and dependence are dynamically developing phenomena in West Africa. They pose public health, development and security problems and are associated with crime, poverty, violence, and social exclusion. Despite evidence-informed policies and actions, the ECOWAS Commission, in collaboration with UNODC, has reported drug prevalence in Nigeria is 15%. The global average is 4.8%. Young people living in Nigeria have a three times greater likelihood of being exposed to drugs than if they lived anywhere else in the world. It is a strategic time for Teen Challenge in Nigeria, The sleeping giant,The church, has the only real answers.
DRESSED and BLESSED
We could write page after page of our time in Nigeria. The wonderful hospitality and culture of honor that we experienced in Nigeria was truly refreshing. The Teen Challenge national director, David Omih, as well as Raymond Agabe in Ibadan, Emma in Abuja, Evans Egebe in Otukpo and Dr Chidi Okoroafor,General Superintendent of the Nigeria Assemblies of God
God granted amazing favor across the Nigeria,from meeting the Inspector General in the Capitol, to Teen Challenge graduation, ministering at Bingham University to over 4000 students and to A/G General Council. On the street, police "no go" zones where drugs were being sold, lives were changed by the power of God to brothels, bars and street corners lives were being changed by the power of GOD

1)THANKSGIVING

Psalm 42:4 (NASB)
4  These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go along with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God, With the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.

We are praying for all of you here in Africa. Circumstances in this divided nation cry out for us to stop and be thankful for all that God has given to us. From impeachment to fears, terrorism, and mass shootings at home to North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan abroad, i in a troubled world call all of us to a fresh dose of prayer & THANKSGIVING. Start with thanksgiving and pray God will take us to a place thanks living

2)MISSION SOS KILGORIS


As we are at work here, in Africa, the MISSION SOS team are praying for specific breakthroughs and against principality of tradition, and the powers of darkness.

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING WITH TC KENYA and the SOS team as we continue to minister the Masai here in Kilgoris.  IN the face of the opposition, just as Jesus encountered the storm on sea on His way to the  Gadarene Demoniac, we are facing storms but  pressing on- in Jesus name, the storms will not stop us—In the rain, in the storm hundreds have received Jesus in the last 2 days.  "Peace Be Still" As an example of how angry the devil is- here is the report from Kenya Meteorological Department.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
KENYA METEOROLOGICAL REPORTS:

A heavy downpour expected to strike the entire country this week has been attributed to the unusual warming of the Indian Ocean. The phenomenon, called the Indian Ocean #Dipole, happens nearly every 10 years, unleashing destructive rains and flooding across East Africa.  More than one million people have been displaced in Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Tanzania - but scientists say more misery is coming.  The strength of the dipole in 2019 is of a magnitude not seen in years, perhaps even decades. The last major IOD was in 2006 where more than 300 people were killed in region-wide flooding caused by unseasonal rains.

Kenya's #Meteorological department yesterday warned that beginning today a heavy deluge will sweep across the country. Assistant Director of KMD Dr David Gikungu predicted the rains would begin last night, doubling in intensity tomorrow.   Yesterday, he put the entire country on alert, saying there was an up to 66 per cent certainty more heavy rains are coming.

The Indian Ocean dipole, sometimes called the Indian El Niño, is an irregular change in the sea temperature in the western (near Kenya's coast) and eastern (closer to Australia) areas of the Indian Ocean. When the ocean around East Africa is far warmer than usual, there is higher evaporation and moist air flowing inwards into East African countries as heavy rains. She predicted the current rainfall would continue until early December.

"Floodwaters may suddenly appear even in places where it has not rained heavily and can be deeper and faster than they look," They also advised Kenyans to avoid driving through or walking in moving water or open fields and not take shelter under trees and near grilled windows to minimize exposure to lightning strikes. She put on alert people in landslide‐prone areas, especially on the slopes of the Aberdare Ranges, Mt Kenya Kilgores and other hilly areas.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are trusting God for sunshine, good news, and miracles as we focus on the Maasai, a monotheistic people whose God is named Engai or Enkai. The Maasai are an indigenous ethnic group in Africa of semi-nomadic people settled in Kenya and northern Tanzania with a population estimated at 900,000. They are mostly known as warriors and for raising cattle. They believe all cattle in the world are owned by them, given by Engai.

Although the Kenyan and Tanzanian governments have established programs to encourage the Maasai to leave behind their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle, the Maasai people have carried on their age-old customs. We are coming with GOOD NEWS.

2) PRAY FOR lasting fruit MISSION NIGERIA

Pray with us for the global advance of the gospel.
Pray for workers for the Harvest ...
We have Teen Challenge Centers in 125 countries and we currently have invitations to start Teen Challenge in many new nations. They are crying out for help and need staff.
They need the power of God to meet a pressing social need... but we know it has a SPIRITUAL ROOT. We offer SPIRITUAL RESOURCES to meet PRACTICAL needs.

MATTHEW 9: 37 Then He said to His disciples,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send
out workers into His harvest.”
