We are very grateful to God for the privilege of receiving a four-member team of missionaries to Moscow Russia which consisted of Brother Chijioke and Sister Iffy from Nigeria, and Brother Martin and Sister Kristina from the Czech Republic.

Brother Martin and Sister Kristina were the first to arrive Moscow at about 12:30 pm Moscow time, and Brother Efeturi was on hand to receive them at the Sheremyetevo Airport in Moscow. They waited for Brother Chijioke and Sister Iffy who arrived in Moscow at about 2:30 pm. From the airport, they headed into Moscow city where they hoped to stay at Intercontinental hotel; surprisingly, the hotel was fully booked. At this point, they were joined by Brother Donatus and together they searched around for some other lodging options with little success. At about 5:30 pm, the Spirit led them to a hotel with available rooms where they settled in.

At 6:00 pm, the Brethren (Brother Chijioke, Sister Iffy; Brother Martin and Sister Kristina) left for a fellowship meeting that lasted from 7 till around 9 pm. At the meeting place, Sister Vanessa, the host, prepared a meal which they all ate together; after which Brother Chjioke and Brother Martin shared the word with the brethren who were present (they were about 7 of them).

After the sharing, Sister Vanessa showed the brethren pictures of their mission work. And the brethren were thankful for the great way God was using them to bring healing to the hurting of Moscow Russia.

From the meeting, they headed to the hotel where they rested for the night.

Saturday 29 August, 2015

After breakfast at the hotel, the Brethren were joined by Brother Efe, Brother Donatus, and Brother Precious and at about 12 noon they departed for the Students for Christ (SFC) meeting venue, where they were to meet with the students in Moscow. Brother Daniel from SFC was there to pick them up.

The meeting started around 1:30 pm, and about a dozen students was present to learn of the mind of Christ concerning them, Brother Martin and Brother Chijioke shared the word of God.

Brother Martin encouraged us to get our vision for life from Christ (1 John 2:14). According to him, “We need to be walking as ambassadors of God, as God wants us to be like him and do like him. For that to happen, we must grow.”

Brother Ike, one of the students present, asked a question on how a young man can discover his purpose, and Brother Martin said the secret is to “make up your mind to do God’s will and have God teach you to obey His will.”

After Brother Martin’s session which lasted about 40 minutes, Brother Chijioke reminded us that we are priests with God with amazing treasures within (2 Cor. 4:7). He reminded all present that God’s mathematics puts our soul at par with the whole world, and still the whole world does not measure up. He encouraged us to develop our soul and make it a watered garden so that God can dwell in it.

The meeting ended at about 4 pm, and from there we (Brother Chijioke and Sister Iffy; Brother Martin and Sister Kristina; Brothers Ike, Efe, Donatus, Precious and Brother David) headed for for dinner.

Along the way to the metro, Brother Chijioke took questions from Brother Ike on several aspects, including wisdom for life, marriage, and leadership. Brother Chijioke, bless God, answered all the questions that were asked him. He explained that Wisdom is that grace from God that directs the soul, and that the foundation of wisdom is the fear of God.

On wisdom for leadership, Brother Chijioke explained that one-man ministry ended with Moses, and that brethren in leadership must practice mutual submission.

When asked about 3 keys he would suggest for marriage, he gave the following:

  1. You must marry someone that loves God more than you. On the basis of that the Love of God can grow. 
  2. Vision. What is the person’s outlook on life? Is God primary in the person’s life?
  3. Compatibility, of the same kind. There are people God has made for you. Beauty is secondary. “The woman that fears the Lord she shall be praised.”

At the dinner location, we were ushered to the African Restaurant, Avenue, where we had an early dinner and some fellowship. After dinner, we all left for the Red Square in Moscow so as to appreciate the city of Moscow.

After seeing the Red Square, the brethren headed back to the hotel to rest their head for the night. But before doing so, they invited us to join them for a time of breakfast and fellowship at their lodge on Sunday morning.

Sunday 30 August, 2015

After breakfast, we had a time of fellowship in Brother Chijioke’s hotel room which lasted till 11 AM. Brother Martin shared on the concept of Christ, laying special emphasis on the importance of Baptism into Christ – immersing yourself into Christ and allowing him to take control of your life.

He used the Tabernacle of Moses to illustrate the steps into being immersed in Christ, encouraging us all to not stop yielding ourselves to God, until we have fully been immersed into Christ.

The meeting ended with a time of prayers, after which Brother Efe assisted the visiting missions Team – Brother Chijioke and Sister Iffy; and Brother Martin and Sister Kristina – to the airport so they could meet up with their flights.

It was really a blessed time in Moscow and we thank God for sending the Team to encourage us in Moscow.

Brother Ike on behalf of the Moscow brethren

We bless God for the great privilege He granted us to undergo this mission to the glory of His name. The team consisted of Brother Iyke & Sis. Caroline John-Chieme from London, Brother Martin Hloska from Prague and Brother Chijioke & Sister Iffy Nwauche from Nigeria.

The first batch of the team which consisted of Brother Chijioke/Sister Iffy Nwauche who came into Prague on the 7th of April from UK after the Luton Conference and Brother Martin Hloska arrived on Thursday 9th April after a long drive from Prague. We were received warmly by Brother Nandor, a Baptist Pastor, another brother who is an elder in the Baptist church and his daughter who served as an interpreter since the other ones could not speak English. We checked into the already booked Csipke hotel in Kiskunhalas and all had dinner together. Conversation was very pleasant and the Pastor expressed his desire to have Brother Chijioke minister in his church but regretted he will be absent since they already had an arrangement to take the youths in the church for a programme outside the town.

Friday, 10th April

After breakfast we (Brothers Martin, Chijioke and Sister Ify) had some time of prayers together and were picked up at 4 pm by Brother Peter Mohlar (Nandor’s son) for the meeting at Sister Magda’s house. The brethren were already singing while waiting for our arrival. We were warmly received by Sister Magda, Brother Elud and his family (wife and two daughters), and some other few brethren. After exchanging pleasantries, Brother Chijioke shared on the importance of writing the vision plainly (Habakkuk 2: 1-3) and the need to hold unto the vision for though it tarries it must surely come. The testimony of his return to Kiskunhalas after 19 years of waiting for the fulfillment of what God had shown him about returning to the place, after 19 years of his earlier visit with Brother Hubert is a proof that what God had spoken will surely come to pass. He emphasised on the need for us to know that we are the temple of God and therefore we must get this temple ready for the Lord to make His dwelling, explaining this from the teaching on the Tabernacle. Brother and Sister Iyke came in later during the meeting with Brother Nandor who picked them from the airport. Sister Magda explained that she had been praying for the return visit of Brothers Chijioke and Hubert after their first visit and was very happy that God had granted the request. Brother Nandor asked a question on the renewing of the mind. The fellowship ended with prayers for Sister Magda. After the fellowship we had dinner at Brother Nandor’s house where sister Melinda treated us with a very rich Hungarian Cuisine. We retired to our hotel around 9.30 pm.

Saturday, 11th April

We were picked up from the hotel by 1 pm for another wonderful lunch at Brother Nandor’s house. Brother Peter picked Brother Ibitamuno Caleb, a young Nigerian brother studying Medicine in Hungary, who joined us for the lunch and after which we all went to the hotel for a brief time of rest before the meeting. During fellowship at Sister Magda’s house, Sister Caroline shared a vision of something like a snow ball which was going up the hill and was collecting the brethren while going on along. We were made to understand that the ball was the word of God which had the power to raise the mind and take us up to the Mountain Zion. Brother Chijioke built upon what he started on yesterday. He taught on the 4 cardinal points of the Apostolic vision with emphasis on the New temple, Zion the City of God (Ps 132:13, 48:1-2, Heb. 12:22-24).

Sunday, 12th April

This was the day of the meeting at the Baptist Church. We were picked up by Nandor and his wife by 9.20 am for the service at 9.30 am. The daughter of the elder in the church had to sit with us so as to interpret for us in the course of the service. We were introduced by the elder and later Brother Chijioke was called to the pulpit to share what he had. He started from 2nd Corinth 3:13-18, stating that there is veil over the face so we approach God with a covering and this is why there is need for a personal revelation of Jesus. Also he spoke about the fact that we are the temple and resurrection is a person and that eternity is a person. This evoked some reactions in the audience; even the interpreter herself was surprised to hear that. He also spoke about the fact that God’s plan is for our total salvation (spirit, soul and body). It was really a good experience being in the Baptist Church; surely God will have us go to different places to spread this word of the kingdom.

Evening meeting was as usual in Sister Magda’s house. Brother Iyke shared from Acts 26:1-8, the apostolic word is that God can change our soul, can make us overcomers and will raise us from the dead. After it Brother Martin shared on training of children. This was particularly important because Brother Elud’s wife had asked a question about how to teach and bring up her children in the way of God. He talked about the chain of authority that flows from God down to the children. The final part of the meeting was an interactive session with questions and answers where Brother Chijioke dealt with some areas that were not very clear from the previous sessions emphasising on the power of the word of God to change our souls. It is noteworthy that all through the meetings, Brother Peter translated all the messages and this he did with great delight. We thank God for this faithful servant of His and pray that God will strengthen him the more in this ministry. We were also very glad to meet with his new baby as well as his wife, his sister and her husband.

A notable testimony in this trip was the coming of Brother Zoltan to the evening meeting; this was a very pleasant surprise to every one of us. Brothers Martin and Chijioke had earlier contacted him and he visited at the hotel and had a long chat with brother Chijioke who encouraged him to attend the meeting. Seeing him walk in during the meeting was indeed an answered prayer and a great encouragement that surely God is beginning to revive things in this little town and we believe that He will restore the years that Caterpillar have eaten. We believe that God will have us pray for this little group and make many more visits to encourage and strengthen them. We left Hungary on Monday afternoon, the three of us (Brothers Martin, Chijioke and Sister Ify) drove back to Czech while Brother Iyke and his wife were taken to Budapest by Brother Nandor to catch their flight back to London. We bless God for the privilege to be able to work as His co-labourers in the vineyard. It is indeed a great honour and humbling experience. We were greatly challenged by Brother Martin’s resilience in the trip, the long journey to and from Hungary without an iota of complaint. May the good Lord bless this humble servant of the His. Amen.

Our meetings in Calgary were very rewarding. The time was well spent. After arriving & getting settled with Brother & Sister Nwauche & daughterAmaka, we had wonderful fellowship with the brethren on Friday. The meeting Saturday afternoon was very sweet. A good presence of the Spirit of the Lord. After a good session of praise & worship Bro. Chijioke shared a word: ” Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” Psalms 1:1. Not receiving counsel from the ungodly. Laying principles of coming out of Babylon. Very important foundations that must be not only laid down but kept throughout our walk in this life. The meeting on Sunday afternoon was focused on personal ministry. Monday was a travel day. A short but necessary visit to foster the establishment of the new fellowship.

Please pray for the wind of God to blow upon this people and this land once again. There is a very rich heritage in God in this area of Canada. Many anointed ministries visited and had glorious visitations here in the 40’s & 50’s. Even prior to this, brethren waited on God & cried out for an outpour of the Spirit of God and God answered and sent power and brethren were endued from on high. Glory to God! Mighty men of God were raised up, Bro. Warnock being one of them, pray for the man. God will certainly hear & honor the cry of those who have gone on to glory for this people to have yet one last outpour in this last day!!

Thank you for your prayers and support,
Chijioke, Iffy, Amaka & Jim

We give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for the grace and mercies that were given to us to undertake this mission to the land of Congo consisting of the Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC (also known as Belgian Congo or Congo Kinshasa) and the Republic of Congo (also known as Congo Brazzaville or French Congo being that it was part of the former French Colonial enclave in Central Africa known as French Equatorial Central Africa, which included the present day nationalities of Republic of Congo, Gabon, Central African Republic, Cameroon and Chad).

The initial team that made the first part of this mission (21-31 July) were brothers Chijioke Nwauche and Yaguo Ide along with two of his daughters – Beulah and Hephzibah. We all arrived in Kinshasa, DRC on Sunday 21 July evening flying direct from Lagos via Douala, Cameroons on the newly-introduced route of the Nigerian Arik Air flight to the DRC. Passage through customs was smooth and more organised and professional. Driving through the streets of Kinshasa, one was stunned and pleasantly surprised at the remarkable transformation, upgrade and development of the city that has taken place in the past three to four years that we last visited. We were very warmly received by our hosts – Sister Geraldine McEwen and the Johnsons.

We next proceeded to Brazzaville in the morning of the next day, Monday 22, from where we connected a local flight to the oil city of Pointe Noire (which is also served by both Air France and Lufthansa Airlines), and then by road for a six-hour drive through the mountains to arrive at our final destination of Nkayi at about 1 AM the early hours of Wednesday July 23, 2013.

Nkayi, the fourth largest city in Congo Brazzaville is dusty at this time of the year and is famed for its sugar cane plantations and factory. It has an airport under reconstruction and is an important railway station of the also famed Ocean-Congo Railways of the then Colonial Equatorial French Central Africa.

Our host, Brother Alphonse Bonda had arranged with some of the local pastors and ministers for the meetings to take place in a nearby Pentecostal Church. The meetings, which were well attended, were held in the evenings of Tuesday 23-Thursday 25 July, 2013. The response to the word of the kingdom was very good especially from the pastors and church leaders present. They testified that they were receiving this word for the first time and were evidently blessed by the various ministries that went forth, especially the trumpet that is calling the church at this time to make the switch from the Old Testament type outward-based worship to the New Testament soul-based worship and priesthood. A remarkable feature of the ministry here is the emergence of a group of very zealous and hungry young people, some of whom meet with Brother Alphonse for fellowship.

Our drive back to Pointe Noire on Friday morning was smooth and we got to Brazzaville but not on time to catch the last boat across the Congo River back to Kinshasa. Having to spend the night in Brazza, we crossed the River on Saturday morning but could only meet the afternoon session of the camp meeting of the group in Kinshasa due some immigration hassles. The camp meeting had started the previous night and was taking place in an Anglican Church-owned guest house which was very conducive for this retreat type set of meetings that ended on Sunday evening, 28 July, 2013. It was very well attended by about 60 people, majority of who were youngsters. The ministry here centered on the fundamentals of the gospel and was a platform to strengthen and encourage the brethren especially in the area of bride price and traditional marriage. Brother Ide gave his powerful testimony of how the Lord strengthened him to overcome this yoke when he got married.

A notable testimony of the ministry here is that of a brother named Jeremiah who being on the verge of being married to a sister from the Bakongo tribe of the DRC (who are very traditional and where once ruled by the powerful Kalongo, the head potentate and chief over the whole Bakongo tribe; the payment of bride price is held very strongly among these people) and having heard the word about the correct scriptural pattern of marriage of Christian couples as set forth in Genesis 24, decided not to proceed any further with his plans of paying bride price. We counselled with him and his fiancée on how to glorify and honour God in their marriage and not to give their home over to the devil.

One of the major take home for us from the trip is the clear word from the Lord that He would have us to pay more attention to the Missions to the Central African nations of DRC, Republic of Congo, Gabon and the Central Africa Republic.

As I travel back to Nigeria today, Wednesday July 31, I will arrive back in Port Harcourt in the early hours of Thursday 1 August, 2013. It will be just in time to receive the visiting team of Brother Burt Asbill and others from the United States. I shall be replaced by Brother Urias Irechukwu from the MIS Port Harcourt group who will be arriving in Kinshasa today on the same aircraft that would convey me back to Lagos. Sister Lucy Yaguo-Ide, would be joining her husband, children and brother Urias  hopefully over this weekend until they all return back to Port Harcourt on 14 July, 2013 right into the Port Harcourt Youth Camp that commences from 14 to 20 July. They will be attending the conference along with Baraka, one of the young people from the Kinshasa fellowship.

As I round up this report, we bless God for the opportunity He has given unto us to serve as unprofitable servants in His vineyard. Blessed be His Holy Name, Amen.

Your Brother,
Chijioke Nwauche

Greetings Brethren,

About one year ago there was an invitation extended for visiting ministry to come from a group of brethren meeting together in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. These are brethren that have come out of the church system and are looking for this Gospel of the Kingdom. The initial contact was made by Sister Biri, of which some brethren have close ties to her.

After much intercession it was made possible for Bro. Chijioke, his wife Iffy and daughter Amaka along with Mark Giegerich and Jim Cassell to come for a weekend of meetings. These brethren had been praying, “God send us the Word of the Lord.” Glory to God!

Bro. Jokes laid a firm foundation of declaring Temple/Tabernacle definitions and responsibilities that we have as Priests in our Tabernacle before God. God is at this time dealing with the soul of man that He has desired to be His final dwelling/resting place. The challenge was given, “Say to God every morning, I AM the Temple of GOD.” Amen! Bro. Mark exhorted us we must at this time come up higher! Bro. Jokes went on to say the Brazen Altar in the outer court is a place of judgement. God is judging our desires, our appetites, our sexuality. We must overcome unforgiveness, distractions of the mind, i.e. entertainment, sports & fashion, desires, passions. Hope is given, the BLOOD of the spotless LAMB has made atonement. [Rev. 12:11]

The meetings concluded with teaching on the 5 offerings in Leviticus 1-8 and overcoming the Ites in the land. God sent His Spirit as a covering for the soul that our soul may be transformed from a Living Soul to become a Quickening [Life Giving] Spirit, in His Likeness!! The Spirit of God moved in a mighty way, there was much response to the Word with repentance, healing of relationships one to another, and a solidifying of a desire to see God’s purpose fulfilled in His people there in Calgary.

Please remember to pray for this people to come to God’s Divine order and purpose for their lives and that God will bring the increase. Please pray also for the continued divine direction for the ministry God has set in the Body and dispersed to the nations for such a time as this. Now is the time to take the kingdom, rise up ye strong, possess your land.

God bless you, Jokes, Iffy, Mark & Jim

It is with a heart filled with praise and gratitude that we make this report of a very successful mission trip to Uganda and Kenya. There were many instances of God’s interventions and lessons learned, not to mention the mighty provisions of the Lord in several fronts, respects and dimensions.

UGANDA: The trip started on the morning of Friday 8th March, 2013 and ended in the early morning hours of Thursday 14 march, 2013. The ministry here consisted of visits to two villages situated in the mountains outside Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. The first Village we visited on Saturday 15 March, was Ruakukulua , about 4-hour drive on a two lane driveway that led us into a dirt road which finally gave way to bushy and rocky goat/local pig pathway. The meeting took place in a mud-hut church building that was packed full of men, women, children, etc. They were delighted to see us after several hours of waiting. One could tell from the expression on their faces that they were satisfied at the end of the two sessions by Brothers Burt and Chijioke.

The ministry on the following day were three sessions-morning and afternoon session with a closing session of questions. It took place in bro. Wilson’s church and the ministry of the word was well received by the brethren. An interesting aspect of the meetings for today was that we had had a meeting with a group of young people who are very hungry for the word desire to move on with the Lord. This meeting marked a turning point in our mission efforts in this land. Let us pray that the Lord would visit them and cause that the vision of this Gospel of the kingdom would be revealed very clearly to them.

We also visited another rural community about three-hour drive outside Kampala. It was similar to the other village we had visited on Saturday. It is noteworthy that on our way to this village, we made a short visit to a home of orphan children as a result of the civil war/rebel activity in the northern part of Uganda and the HIV/AIDS scourge.

Our final ministry here was a second meeting with the group of young people in sister Biri’s home. It was quite a blessing sharing fellowship with these hungry and zealous brethren.

An important aspect of this mission was that we were hosted by sister Biri and we also had in our company, Sisters Geraldine and Felicia, both from the fellowship in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their presence was really a tonic that quickened and energized our fellowship here.

Malawi: When we left Kampala on the morning of 14 March, our destination was Lilongwe International Airport, Malawi. However, this was not to be as we sensed the Lord was redirecting our mission through the visa/immigration challenges we encountered on checking-in at Entebbe Airport, Uganda. We eventually got checked–in to Nairobi, Kenya. On getting here, it was clear to us that the Lord would have us to cancel our trip to Malawi and commence our Mission to Kenya a week earlier than scheduled.

Kenya: So it was that Bro. Alfred our host had to urgently work out an impromptu meeting schedule even as we looked to the Lord to direct our mission here, being that we were well aware that God had intervened to reroute our plans being that the previously planned meetings and hotel accommodations, etc., had to be cancelled. We had to adjust to a new set of meetings, accommodation and logistic plans, etc.

The first change was the cancellation of the ministers’ conference in the Nakuru/Njoro area due the high and volatile post-election tension in the country generally and especially here where one of the presidential candidates hails from. The second change was that we made a new contact here in Nairobi that provided a new platform that has opened a door of ministry to the youths of Kenya.

Our first meeting was with a secondary school youth group on Friday 15th March while the meetings on Saturday and Sunday were with a group of church Leaders from around the greater Nairobi area.

In all, the meetings here have been very rewarding and fruitful during our time here from 14-19 March, 2013, even as many new fronts and contacts were opened unto us that we believe the Lord would strengthen and enable us to respond to in due course.

Bro. Chijioke

Monrovia is the capital city of Liberia, a country mainly populated by descendants of resettled slaves mainly from the United States of America. It is located along the West African coastline between the countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Ivory Coast.

Our visit was made possible by a Liberian brother who was a participant at the September, 2011 Lakka-Freetown Conference in Sierra Leone.

He is the pastor of a church in Monrovia and he hosted the meetings together with other pastors in the city. Thus, we had meetings on arrival on Tuesday night in a church that was located in the suburbs of the city.

On Wednesday 14th March, 2012 we had a Radio broadcast in a community Radio Station in the city and thereafter, we had meetings successively in three different churches. This day was a public holiday called Decoration day in honour of all the dead people in Liberia, in which they annually decorated the graves and tombs of the dead. It consisted of feastings, communal and family meetings and revelries in honour of the dead and death. We discerned that the Lord had planned our visit to be at this time that we might address and rebuke this stronghold of darkness in the land and even in the church as we noticed that several church members and pastors were actively involved in this abomination and idolatry. We also noticed that majority of our audience were women, probably due to the effect of the 14-year civil war.

The ministry on Thursday 15th March, 2012 was also in three churches and included a workshop for the leaders of one of the big churches in Monrovia. It was characterized by a very warm and hearty reception of the word of the kingdom by hungry hearts, even among the leadership of the churches.

The final day of ministry before our departure on Saturday 17th March, 2012; was concentrated in Bro. Alphonso’s church was not only showed a deeper level of hunger, understanding and maturity in the things of God, but also have a huge potential of prospering in this word of the kingdom.

In all, this mission was groundbreaking, foundational and quite explosive and firmly opens the door for future missions to this war ravaged people.

NEEDS: One of the glaring needs here amongst the brethren was that majority do not own a Bible which costs about $3.00 as most can read and write English.

Our prayer is that the fruits of this mission will not only remain, but will blossom unto the full knowledge and manifestation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Amen.
