    Hello Black family! It was so great to see and hear what God is doing. You all are doing some amazing and exciting things. Please tell Elijah how proud I am of him. We struck up a friendship at the last Mission's Convention. It was wonderful!

    Praise God for your new generator!! Praise God for the wonderful testimony you shared of that son's reconciliation with his dad. The deeper things are what its all about. There is nothing equal to our salvation which is the wellspring of our lives. Thank God that you are in the midst of UPG, but I pray for your continued protection. The future brings more adjustments, but you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Love, in Him, Ann

    Hi Eric, Love to you in Jesus, Well I haven't been in Nigeria for a few years but I thank you for all your news letters, I've read them all. I had a serious stroke in January 2014. I was completely parallelized down my right side and my wife had to push me around in a wheel chair for 6 months. I'm not the kind of guy to lie down to these things, so, I got a walking stick and started to walk (or should I say hobble) around. Now four years later I'm still hobbling around with my walking stick although moving a little bit faster. I traveled to Israel, Romania and Ireland last year and many places in the UK. My speach was not effected so I could still preach and teach the Word of God which was a real blessing. I have fond memories of you and your big family (I think it was 6 kids that you have) and now the thrill of a grandchild. I have 2 grandchildren and they are a real joy to be around. I've kept you in prayer over the years and will continue to pray for your return to Nigeria and the handing over of the school. okay God bless you all. May the Lord continue to bless and provide for you according to His will. Hudson Taylor said"God's work done Gods way does not lack God's supply" I've been full time for God for 45 years now, without a salary, brought up 2 children and God has been absolutely faithful. I say that to encourage your heart, things get tough sometimes as I'm sure you know but God always triumphs in the end and pulls you through. God bless Eric, love to your wife and kids. Your brother in Christ Mickey

    Congratulations regarding the new addition to your family. God keep and bless both the baby and the parent + the grandparent. Am glad that you were able to achieve a lot in our community. Am also pleased that you were able to train locals who will carry on where you have stopped. Your ministry and sponsors, as well as Pastor Amdele and his ministry LTM, are one of the best things that had happened in our community. Those of us from the community living abroad will work together with the Pastor to ensure that the school progresses and that the gospel of Christ is preached everywhere around the community. God bless you, your entire family and your funders.

    Dearest Eric and Cindy, Emily, Elijah, Caleb and Naomi,
    Thank you so very much for your honest and personal video. I appreciated every minute of it. I am praying for each of you, and now for Jillian, especially. I know you are proud of Jesus in all of your treasured children, and so am I. Of course, congratulations to you all regarding Hannah and Brandon's soon to arrive baby. I am very proud of Jesus in and through you Eric and Cindy. All Glory to God (as Pastor Forseth, always was exclaiming!).
    You both are such clear examples of Godly Priorities. I am confident of God's Pleasure in you all. I send you tons of love and continual, fervent prayer support.

    Dear Family -- The Scripture that comes to mind is, "As your day is, so shall your strength be." Rest in His goodness, and operate in His favor!

    Liz sturm (Wednesday, 20 September 2017 19:51)

    So encouraged to hear of your travels and especially how God has directed you to care for your family. It takes great courage to share a family's struggle with depression. In our society we need to understand our family and friends and seek out help. No judgement but love and compassion. May Our Lord continue to bless you ,guide you and direct your path. So excited to hear of Hannah's pregnancy. Praying for a healthy prince or princess for Gods kigdom���

    Hi everyone. The video was great! I pray that the LORD will provide you with a new place in His perfect timing. I know personally that moving is always stressful. May He give you many assistants.
    Do you know Bruce and Linda Cannon, supported SGT missionaries? Their oldest son goes to Cedarville U. already and their younger son is considering attending.

    As for a dog's name, we always named our German Shepherds Rocky. I do not know how that will go over in Nigeria, but the boxer was a pretty tough character. Love, in Christ, Ann
