Jerusalem is a Community located in Angwan Rukuba, Jos, Plateau
State, Nigeria. Previously called Filin Satan (Field of satan)
as a result of the evil activities carried out unrestrained
there, believers living around the Community prophetically
renamed it. It's a Community, actually a slum, known for
substance (drug) abuse, drinking, prostitution and violence. It
was in this Community Muslims were killed, burnt and eaten by
the people during one of the crises in Jos. Just about anything
goes here. It's also a risky zone for uniform men, we were told.
Following the Lord's prompting to reach out to the people, we
scheduled an Outreach there in order to share the love of God
expressed through Jesus Christ to all humanity knowing that they
need help and Jesus Christ is actually the Help they need! On
Saturday, 26th May, we launched out, by the Spirit, with other
precious saints who volunteered to be a part. The Strategy was:
A Door-to-Door evangelism from 12noon to 3pm covering both the
community and neighbouring Communities. Then an open air
preaching right in the community using Film Show as a bait.
About 3,000 copies of Gospel Tracts were distributed within and
outside the Community up to Fudawa. It was so amazing to see
some of the people of New Jerusalem Community join in the
distribution of Gospel Tracts. We particularly noticed a young
man, who we later identified to be "Unity" by name, passionately
moving from place to place giving Gospel Tracts to whoever he
met. It was quite a sight. Many souls turned to the Lord during
this first phase of the Outreach. Later in the evening, an
open-air preaching through a Film Show was done, anchored by Mr.
Lewis Dam from Great Commission Movement. Over 200 souls made a
decision to turn to the Lord, who prayed to receive Jesus Christ
as Lord and Saviour.
We were told it's the first time such an event was happening in
May 26, 2018 is a day that would be forever remembered by all
who witnessed what the Lord did in Angwan Rukuba. We trust the
Lord to be back to Angwan Rukuba later this year for another
Outreach. And to Jesus be all the glory for all He has done.
Thanks to everyone who was a part of the team, volunteered,
prayed along or gave their resources to make this happen. Your
reward is sure.
Please, let's keep the people of New Jerusalem in prayer as it
might take some time for many of them to break free from various
addictions and patterns. We know the Lord is at work and would
perfect what He has started in them. Amen!
