NIGERIAN AIRLIFT REPORTS FOR OCTOBER 16-28, 2017

In the Northeast:

The following took place from October 16th through October 28th, 2017. 

Basorun "Doja" Adewolu and Abiodun "Abi" Fijabi and myself Gene Arnold, spent approximately two weeks meeting with many leaders throughout the region.  We also met with leaders from around the world.  As we shared the Revised Vision and the purpose of FGBMF America, we were warmly received.  NYC alone is showing interest in helping us start two or three chapters in all five Boro's.  Also, New Jersey men are interested in starting chapters in six counties.  Interest in one in Connecticut, several upstate New York, PA and Delaware.  We will be following these leads up asap.  However, there is a startup chapter meeting November 9th in Queens, NY. 

Also, we did a Radio Broadcast for two hours, throughout the area and the Caribbean.  We talked of all aspects of Full Gospel.  Pastor Dennis Vincent moderated the broadcast and he will be starting chapters in Brooklyn.

We received interest in Joshua Chapters, Fishing Chapters and Holy Smoke Hangouts.

We were housed, while in NYC, at New York School of Urban Ministry located in Astoria, Queens. NYSUM will become a great source to us now and in the future. 

Abi and Doja were very much impressed with all of the above.  We Thank All who were involved in these two weeks.

In God We Trust, Gene Arnold National Director Pennsylvania

Report on Nigerian Outreach to USA

We would like to thank our Nigerians brothers for reaching out to us in the USA to help, to start Fishing Chapters in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. 

A great big “Thank You” to Mr Ranti Familoni and Mr Anthony Ewelike. These men did an outstanding job presenting the Vision and sharing their testimonies. The results of which have allowed us to start several new fishing chapters in our area.

It was great spending time with both these men, since I have known Tony for over 30 years through Full Gospel, it was special treat for my wife and I to see him again.

Thank you - Nigeria, for all your help. God Bless, Jim Priddy National Director FGBMF in America 

 

In the Northeast:

Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The campaign as planned in our area was a huge success.

We had a total of nine new fishing chapter meetings translating into daily meetings with a day off throughout there stay in our area. 

We had a meeting in Virginia and the rest in different cities in Maryland.

 

The men from Nigeria ( Dr Tony Ewelike and Prof. Ranti Familoni) did marvelously in their presentation of the vision and there testimonies. 

We housed them in Days Inn in Laurel Maryland throughout their stay and they were happy with their accommodation.

We are working to ensure that all the fishing chapters translate into full-fledged Chapters by the grace and mercy of God.

We give all the praise to our lord Jesus Christ. Yours in Him, Greg Ogbue

 

In the Northwest:

My outreach locations were Medford, OR, Bend, OR, Eugene, OR, Portland, OR, Vancouver, WA and Chehalis, WA. As a result of the airlift, we have potential new chapters in Eugene, Vancouver, Bend and Chehalis.  The most likely to succeed are in Bend and Chehalis.

The Nigerian team of Full Gospel business men (4) and one woman represented professional business leaders from various professions. They were encouraging, personable and team players. Their educational achievements and commitment to serving God with their excellent credentials presented a positive image of their knowledge of the word and their support and service to the kingdom of God and to the Full Gospel organization.

The main event for this journey was a special royalty banquet in their honor showing respect for coming to America and teaming up with FGBMFA. They all gave their amazing testimonies, shared their accomplishments and methods of opening over 3600 chapters in Nigeria and providing in depth training for some 37 attendees at the banquet.   This banquet was televised through 2 TV stations located in Ghana West Africa and Vancouver, WA. I could not visit all chapter locations in Oregon and SW Washington but invited the leadership from all chapters for training by attending this event.

In summary, I feel that the team reached the "pulse beat" of God and their efforts will result in new chapters.

In the Northwest:

It was a great encouragement to have the Nigerians visit us in the northwestern part of Washington state. We have never lost the main vision of “Full Gospel”, to bring the lost to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, especially the men. We have lost the boldness to have men share their testimonies accompanied with signs and wonders. The main thing we got out of their visit was to rely on the Holy Spirit and teach others to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. We were shown how to get business men involved and how to run a structured meeting without being boring. They showed us how vital it is to get members involved and become active members using proven methods. I received a healing of an old shoulder injury and it is getting stronger every day.

We are now in the beginning stages of putting these foundations into practice. What a joy it was to these fired-up Nigerians minister to us!

In the Northwest:

We received with gladness the 5-member Nigerian Airlift team of: Favor Victory, David Maceli, Tony Akwuegbu, Isaac Okpanachi and Jan Okpanachi!

The Nigerians came ready to testify, encourage and train. Meetings were held in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The first outreach meeting in Roseville, CA started slow, with only a few in attendance. But after that, outreaches increased in numbers as new contacts were made in Loomis and Auburn, CA. An “Upper Prayer Room” team of 7 men from Fresno, CA joined us in Loomis, CA. A special outreach to the Fernley, NV Chamber of Commerce took place at their monthly breakfast meeting. The Nigerians were able to share and minister at two Nevada chapters: Sparks and Carson City. The brothers in the Redding, CA chapter were very inspired by the Nigerians. I will continue to pray and cultivate the soil in three areas for FGBMFA: the Fresno area, the Roseville area and Fernley, NV!

A special “thanks” goes out to Augustin Jorquez, a Sparks chapter member, for the use of his van and for sacrificing most of his week to be our daily driver.
