The closing week of the Western and Central Africa Camp Meeting saw many more blessings received. The following report gives the details:
Continuing the overall theme of the camp meeting, “The Relationships of the Godly,” the third week focused on relationships within the family, including the family of God.
Isaac Adigun, District Superintendent of Western Europe, introduced this focus in the first teaching of the week with the topic “Healthy Family Relationships.” The teachings that followed covered the subjects of unity among the saints and how to avoid the entanglements of the world.
A Seminar on marriage and family was held on Tuesday evening in place of the usual evangelistic service. Various points were presented and then a question and answer session followed. The congregation showed great interest throughout, and afterward many took advantage of the opportunity to pray about these important subjects.
On Friday, a water baptismal service was held and 1,130 candidates were baptized. Then in the evening, the ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and the Washing of the Disciples’ Feet were observed.
On the last day of the camp meeting, the topic for the Sunday morning sermon was “The Unconquerable Soldier in Christ.” It was given by Brother Bayo Adeniran, and addressed how the godly can sustain victory through deepening the relationship with God and fellow Christians.
The evening service included testimonies of God’s power to save, heal, and deliver. Ngozi Totty of Abuja, Nigeria, told how she battled cancer for thirteen years until God stepped in and healed her. Another Sister told of God’s mighty hand to deliver. She said her pregnant sister was kidnapped, but miraculously, the Lord delivered her and protected the unborn baby as well.
The final message of the camp meeting was on “Take Aways.” Benjamin Oni of Igbesa, Nigeria, urged the campers to take God’s promises with them as they return to their homes.
Truly Heaven came down and glory filled our souls during this camp meeting. By the close of the three-week convention, over 16,000 had claimed blessings from the Lord. This included 4,061 who were saved, 2,276 who were sanctified, 1,088 who received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, 3,050 who were re-anointed, 4,168 who were healed, and more.
We appreciate all the prayers offered on behalf of this camp meeting.
As the WECA camp meeting was coming to a close on Sunday, August 28, the Ghana camp meeting was just beginning. Some traveled from Nigeria to participate, including Brother Isaac who gave the opening sermon, introducing the theme borrowed from the WECA camp meeting: “The Relationships of the Godly.”
The opening services were attended by over one thousand and included Sunday school, the morning worship service, an afternoon young people’s meeting, and an evening evangelistic service.
The blessings are already flowing in Ghana. As of Tuesday evening, thirty-eight have prayed through to salvation, seventeen have been sanctified, nine have received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and eleven have been healed.
We thank God for the new names written down in Heaven during the camp meeting in Nigeria, as well as for the blessings received, and pray many more will receive of Him during the meetings in Ghana.
