Baptist Conference charges members on completion of mission village

THE Chairman, Men’s Missionary Union (MMU) Oke-Ogun Baptist Conference, Deacon David Abiodun Ajala, has charged members of the union to put in more efforts into rebuilding the damaged structure at the mission village in Kotogiri village, Oorelope Local Government Area of Oyo State.

Deacon Ajala made this known at the dedication of a church, chalets and other structures erected at the mission village during the first annual mission outreach, held recently.

According to him, “the storm which came from Saki/Igbeti axis affected many structures, including the mission building, almost dampened our enthusiasm. But miraculously, God raised an army of builders among His people who gathered materials, men and resources to reconstruct the damaged building.

“This is highly commendable. I want to charge you, let us clothe ourselves with the garment of mission works like the missionaries of old,” he stated.

In his goodwill message, President, Oke-Ogun Baptist Conference, Reverend (Dr) Olu Alade, urged the congregation to always put their trust in God, and always pray for people in positions of authority, “so that God can touch their hearts to do His will while in office.”

The Onigbope of Gbope, Oba Mathew Atoyebi, affirmed the readiness of the community to partner with the MMU for the propagation of the gospel.
