Tuesday, Nov.29

The team prepared for Nigeria by viewing Louie Giglio's teaching “God's Passion for God's Glory” on DVD and then watching a DVD from Open Doors ministry about persecution in Nigeria. We followed that with a study on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18), reading Scripture about God's defensive and offensive provision found in the “full armor of God.” We completed the team building with a study prepared by Jordan Rowley on folk religions. And then closed with a time of prayer.

Not long after this we received bad news: Jordan was again denied a visa to go. That means Brandy, Gary and Michael will travel on Wednesday to New York and then to Europe and on to Africa on Thursday. Pastor Chris Joseph will meet the team when we arrive.

“It's been a crazy roller coaster,” Jordan said. “It's clearly the Lord's hand. I'm thankful that His will has been done and give Him praise for the closed door just as I would for an open door.”


“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
— Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)
