Every Sunday morning, Moses Ogar preaches for the church of Christ in Obudu, Nigeria. Then, as soon as lunch is over, he travels alone to the Obudu Prison, and does it again. On weekdays, Moses hand delivers WBS postal lessons from teachers in the U.S. and studies one on one with those who are ready. Only now, he doesn’t go alone. Godwin is with him every step of the way.
Last year, Godwin’s life was very different. Instead of travelling about, helping Moses in his ministry, Godwin stayed where he was, behind bars at the Obudu Prison, and waited for Moses to minister to him. On September 15, he was baptized. Three months later, he was released. No parent, spouse or friend greeted him at the gate. Instead, his new brother in the faith, Moses, was there to meet him.
Since then, Moses has opened his home to Godwin. Together, they minister, and together they look for a job for Godwin. If Godwin returns to his former home, he will return to a life full of the temptations which sent him to prison in the first place. They both request your prayers that Godwin may find a new home, a new job, and a new family in the church.
Update: After two months at Moses’s side, Godwin found a new job. God is faithful!
