Hello, and a belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
Can you believe we’re already at the end of November? With the end of November, we’re sad to say that it is also the end of Pastor Sylvester’s visit. We can’t begin to express the gratitude, the appreciation we have for this man and how the Lord has used him to minister to us. There are many others whom have been blessed by Pastor Sylvester, and have felt the lasting impact of this man of God.
We would like to update specifically on Pastor Sylvester’s visit and his mission in this time. In the last two weeks, Pastor Sylvester has spoken at many churches, all over the place! He spoke at two different churches in the San Bernardino area, as well as in Los Angeles and the here local in the Antelope Valley. Pastor Sylvester has been sharing the burning desire that the Lord has placed in his heart, the All Nations International Training Center in Aba, Nigeria.
For those of you who are new All Nations International, Pastor Sylvester Alanwoko pastors Victory Church Nigeria, as well as over 65 cell groups with member’s from 25 to 150 members, with a reach of over 2,000 people a week. However, many people are still in need of hearing the message of the gospel. Pastor Sylvester’s vision is to build a community center to train and empower local pastors, Christians, and widows. A centralized, gathering place where people not only receive spiritual and natural training courses, but receive medical treatments by hosted missionary doctors and nurses.
This community center will be a training ground, not only to the local people but to missionaries from all nations of the world. It will provide missionaries, pastors and evangelists with a clean, comfortable and safe place to stay, at no cost to them. A community center that will allow visiting pastors a greater reach, gathering people at the center for periods of time, cutting teaching and training time in half, resulting in a greater impact with more effective results.
Pastor Sylvester has a goal: to have 100 pastors, trained and equipped to be sent out with a mandate: each pastor is to reach 1,000 souls for the kingdom. In a year’s time, there could be 100,000 souls, who have received the message of salvation.
With this vision in mind, Pastor Sylvester has been visiting churches, asking if they would partner with him in this project. A project that will have lasting results, long after this generation passes. In order to make this center a reality, the cost will be $60,000, for a two story building, with the upper level being rooms for visiting pastors and missionaries. That includes the roof, plumbing, electrical wiring, windows, all completed and ready for use. If the project had the funding needed, in nine months time the center could be up and running.
Imagine, a place in Nigeria where the Gospel will be taught, so that other villages across Nigeria will hear this amazing gospel, as well as people all over the world. Where the Kingdom principles, Isaiah 58 principles, will shape the future generations of Africa, and of the world. If you would like to join us in this kingdom building project, donate here.
