Nigeria Oct17

Today, everything changed. We left Lagos at 8am and flew to Enugu. From there we traveled 2 hours to our next hotel. It was a totally different level of hotel. It’s a bit rougher. We are at the best hotel in the town a “resort”. It’s $65 a night.

After we put our bags down and had lunch we headed to our first village. It was a one hour drive into the woods. The land is jungle-type rolling hills. We drove through several villages. People walking everywhere. We drove up to a small mud church building probably 50′ by 20′. Inside was PACKED, every square inch with people. They were singing loud and dancing as much as they could in the tight space. They had been waiting in the building for 4 hours for us to get there. Some people had walked up to 12 miles to get there. It was such a culture shock, it was difficult to know what to say. They were so inquisitive. After it was over we took a group pic. Tomorrow we will go to several villages and baptize in the river. I’m not getting in the water. I will be supporting from the side!! Amen!
I hope to have a video update tomorrow.

  1. Can’t wait to see the videos!!! AMEN! to staying out of the water…. Wisdom! 🙂

  2. It would be so awesome to have such a desire for God in our “villages” that we would walk further than our car to the door of the church. Where is the hunger in America for God? Indeed there is a need for missionaries there and thank God for our leaders and Pastor Ani working together to form this beautiful alliance for us. I look around here and wonder with all that we have why we aren’t our friends and neighbors willing to get out of bed and worship God who allows us to be the richest people in the world in so many ways but, we are not the richest because so few of us accept into our hearts the wonders of our Lord’s presence and the riches found there that pass farther than the money and “stuff” ever could. Thank you Pastor Robin for your service to us and the world. We are so blessed to have you as a leader. And thank you to Mark and Rob for your service as well you are all blessings to us and that God has given us such strong and excellent examples of Jesus’ hands and feet. It is wonderful to be part of this church family. Thank you God

  3. No getting in the water? You can no be in Africa and no experiencing the power of batptism in the African rivers…. We miss you Pastor!

  4. This is awesome… Your trip has brought back to the forefront my journeys and how I miss it so much, especially going deep into the bush. Thanks for the updates… BTW, I would have gone in the water… 😉
