15 April 2019New members commit to sharing Grace & Light’s story
Ten people have committed to playing an active role in Grace & Light by publicising what we do in their congregations, hosting volunteer teams during visits, raising new local supporters and sharing ideas for improving our ministry.
They made their commitment public at our Nigerian annual general meeting on 16 March when they were welcomed into membership. They are Dr Emeka Ekwonu, Samuel Harry, Cindy John, Rev Dung Rwang, Juliana Ashom, Pastor Stephen Agbu, Pastory Larry Pam, Andrew Dung, Prince Maxwell, Suleiman Ahmed and Friday Bitrus.
“We are pleased to have so many people committing to be actively involved in supporting our work in Nigeria,” said international coordinator Tassie Ghata. “They will make a big difference to understanding about Grace & Light in their areas.”
Forty-five people attended the annual general meeting including trustees, directors and Jos volunteer team members. They began with a time of prayer and worship, followed by an overview of achievements in 2018 and the auditor’s financial report.
Then founder Mark Hopkins shared our vision for 2019 to help the Christian church to tap into righteousness as an ever-flowing stream, using Amos 5 and 2 Corinthians 5 to explain what we mean.
He said: “Our heart’s desire in Grace & Light this year is to put before the eyes of church and nation the righteousness of God. Not just glimpses here and there, but an every-flowing stream. Let us press on toward this without any compromises.”
