Mission Duration: November 3rd - 13th, 2017
Mission work in the nation of Nigeria presents unique challenges when compared to some of the other countries that FirstLove has the privilege of ministering to. Some of these challenges may be encountered as early as the visa application process which is required for entry. Praise The Lord, however, for He gives more grace. Even before the FirstLove Missions team had physically arrived at the airport for the departure to Nigeria, The Lord had already been mightily at work opening every door that was needed.
Dear CBC Saints,
Greetings in the name of Him who, "having loved His own...loved them to the end."
As I write this update from Victoria Island, Lagos, I'm struck with a sense of the faithfulness and tender mercies of the Lord. Since our arrival 7 days ago every need of every team member has been provided by the Lord. God has been constantly protecting us, encouraging us, renewing our strength, healing our bodies, and pushing us forward. . . .
