Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

nullOur seminary brothers in Nigeria study the same Gospel as our brothers do in St. Louis and Fort Wayne, but in very different settings. The Jonathan Ekong Memorial (JEM) Seminary in Nigeria is in serious need of restoration. The buildings’ conditions are dangerous to useless.

As our partners in gospel proclamation in Africa, and by your vote for grant #4 at the 2015 LWML Convention in Des Moines, we are privileged to assist in their restoration with a $120,000 grant.

We praise God for those called to be Church Workers, and as we pray for, support, and encourage our Church Workers in Mission and seminary students locally, let us also be mindful to do so for those in Nigeria.


Your mite offerings will insure the restoration of this precious seminary and the continuation of the proclamation of the Gospel to our Nigerian brothers and sisters.

With our biennium ending on March 31, it is very important to send your mite offerings in each week, making sure the last one is postmarked no later than March 31, 2017.

Philippians 4:13 says, I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

I know we can meet the goal we set. This is just a reminder not to wait.

I love you all.
