Christmas 2008: Please Consider this 2:39 Video
Riots in Jos, Nigeria Kill an Estimated 400 People Nov. 27-30. Please Pray for Peace & Safety!
Thanks to Dr. Charles Ryrie for Speaking at our GO Nigeria Luncheon on November 7th
We are currently asking everyone to collect all their loose change, because each 10 cents you gather provides a meal for an orphan in Nigeria. Think about that! A $100 donation from you provides 1,000 meals!!! So clean out your car ashtray, your dresser drawer, that cup in the kitchen (or where ever you keep your change), ask everyone you know to do the same, and please give toward our annual grains purchase, coming up very soon--in December! THANK YOU. “Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” -Luke 12: 33-34
By the end of 2008 we will be caring for approximately 400 orphans and needy children. But with your help, we could be doing so much more. We could rescue, feed, disciple and educate thousands more Nigerian children. We could establish dozens more Care & Outreach Centers and schools for street kids and widows. We could plant hundreds of new churches. We could show gospel films to literally millions of Nigerians, helping bring hundreds of thousands to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. These potentials are not things we simply hope might be effective—they are ministries which have already proven themselves for years.
This ministry began in 1996 and our leaders have been here for a decade. The needs and the solutions are very clear. Additionally, our ministries are local initiatives supported financially by Nigerian individuals, churches, organizations, and even the government. Yet we currently are only scratching the surface of what could be accomplished in Nigeria, by God’s grace.
Many people around the world consider Nigeria a key strategic nation to the spread of Christianity throughout western Africa. Nigeria, the most populous country in the continent with some 140 million people (including over apple apps developer mobile application development android programming 50 million Muslims and 150 unreached people groups), is also the world’s 5th largest producer of oil. But Islam is growing rapidly here as well, and many believe the next 10 to 20 years will see Nigeria become predominantly either Christian or Islamic. Whichever way the nation goes, Nigeria’s influence will no doubt greatly impact its neighboring countries.
Our hope is that western churches and Sunday school classes, Bible study and prayer groups, co-workers, friends, families will consider jointly or individually adopting our people and programs. You could host a fundraising dinner, or a golf tournament, or simply ask everyone in your class to donate $25 per month.
Think big! Be creative! Have fun! Doing God’s work is full of obstacles and trials but laden with joys and great blessings, both on earth and for eternity. Please consider becoming a U.S. based missionary volunteer--involved to whatever extent you wish--helping raise awareness of our work and building prayer, people and financial support for this ministry!!!
Truly, all gifts of any size are significant (the widow’s mite) in multiple ways--for you, for us, for the Kingdom of God. But the Lord has blessed many of you with the ability to give gifts as large as $10 million (in cash, stock or other donated assets). In one sense, $10 million is certainly a great deal of money. But when you consider that a gift of that size could impact 20 million Nigerians over the next 5-10 years—well, $10 million is not very much, is it?
In the poignant words of martyred missionary Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
Who knows what God may choose to do in the wake of His faithful financial stewards? So we ask search engine optimazation www.optimalseo.net internet based business those of you who can make very large gifts of $50,000 and above to please do so. But we also recognize that it may be a $5 donation for a Bible that changes all of West Africa!
The primary question today (especially in light of eternity) is not, “How much of God's gifts to us can we give toward building His kingdom?” but instead “How much of God's gifts to us are we going to keep for ourselves?”
City Ministries’ MissionAbout City Ministries
To partner western volunteers and Nigerians in a variety of programs to reach Nigeria's most challenged communities, especially orphans and needy children, widows and unreached people groups.
This year City Ministries will serve approximately 500,000 meals to those in need. Some 400 orphans and needy kids located in the city of Jos and eight communities throughout Nigeria will be assisted by our efforts. Thousands more receive water, electricity, literacy training, clothing, food, vocational training , medicine, and school fees—and still more receive prosthetics, canes and wheelchairs. We also support an evangelistic film ministry whereby tens of thousands receive exposure to the gospel. As needs are met and bridges are built through our various ministries, we constantly try to demonstrate and extend the love of Christ and to help people come to a saving knowledge and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
2008 marks our 12th year of work in Nigeria. City Ministries brings together more than 250 Nigerian staff and volunteers, including over 20 westerners, to serve the needs of Nigeria's most challenged people groups. Our missionaries work with church representatives to help facilitate partnerships and maintain accountability and progress.
Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa with some 140 million people, including approximately 50 million Muslims and 150 unreached people groups! Thousands die every day without Christ. Over half the population lives in cities. By 2010 it is estimated there will be 16-18 million orphans in Nigeria, largely due to the AIDS pandemic.
