With the assistance of former members now in Canada, the Lagos Ecclesia operated Zoom meetings for 6 months in 2020, providing a service to others in Nigeria and further afield who had access to the technology to join when unable to meet locally. The ecclesia benefited from exhortations and studies provided by many brethren from around the world.
Preaching continued across the Country. In the East a substantial impact was made through the use of preaching through broadcast addresses on the radio. In particular use of a new station in the Enugu area generated large numbers of contacts. A minibus, with the principal purpose of providing transport for preaching work arrived and was put into service in the latter part of the year. Baptisms from more traditional preaching initiatives were reported at Benin City and Akure.
A number of leading Brethren have suffered from poor health and we were sorry to hear of the falling asleep of Brother Tony Coker, the long-serving Recording Brother of Kaduna during the early part of the year.
