Letter of Appreciation: New Covenant Church, Abraka

Calvary Greetings,

On behalf of the Pastor and the entire congregation of New Covenant Church, Abraka Center, we hereby appreciate and show our gratitude to you for all your effort before/during and after LIBERTY 2013. May God Almighty bless and give you strength. We pray that our heavenly Father will satisfy you with long life in Jesus’ Name.

Since the LIBERTY 2013 programme till now God has been adding to the Church every week. Attendance has risen from 90 to about 160. Water baptism has been done for about 40 new converts. The child you paid for her operation has been successfully operated on, at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Benin. And the mother has been attending our Church with the child full of life and joy. Some of those operated on, during LIBERTY has since been our members. Some others came to do thanksgiving and testified of God’s goodness through LIBERTY in our Church.

Sunday service in one New Centre at Ebedei has begun and another Centre will soon commence at Obiaruku in Two weeks’ time.

New Covenant Church Abraka appreciates the General Overseer, Revd. Dr Paul Jinadu; for his contribution  towards our new Church auditorium. However, for the urgent need of the Church, a Car port tent has been done to accommodate more members on Sunday services.

We thank God for giving you to .us; “A UNIQUE MOTHER ALL THE TIME”. Thank you, Ma!!!

Yours in the Vineyard

Pastor Benson Agbragu

Hallelujah.  It is day 4.  Most of the Liberty team who travelled from abroad had packed their bags the night before. The bus arrived at 6.30 am. As usual we were not ready but justifiably this time.

Abraka Chronicles 2013: Day 3 – Continuation

Off to the camp site we trudged. Sounds of the melodious music were booming from the speakers with the congregation dancing to the songs in their local dialect. They were excited. The drama presentation was thought provoking but more importantly it prepared the way for the preacher and a great move of the Holy Spirit. After the

Abraka Chronicles 2013: Day 2 – Coincidence or a God incident

Thanks for reading my chronicles. I thought a bit of reflection today on how we got to Abraka, Delta State would be appropriate. “Why Abraka?” was a question I heard over and over again leading up to the mission.  To be sincere, the criteria used for choosing the place is unknown to me. Abraka was tagged a high risk area far from

Abraka Chronicles 2013: D Day Minus 2 – Day of Rest.

Today is Sunday. I decided it was going to be my day of rest.  Locked myself in the house and did nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  I cannot describe the peace and sense of renewal I felt after a whole day rest. My friends, who had more energy than I, decided to visit the beach.  Reports from our in house papazari indicated that they
