January 1989

Ever since the arrival of the resident missionary, the work with the government was going on to obtain a church missionary quota number. Without this number, no foreign missionary could work with the NCLC. The missionary could be required to leave Nigeria at any time. Finally, all necessary papers were completed and forwarded to the Federal Capital at Abuja. Now we await the government’s assigning of the number. We await this with prayer. Once the number is given, then the missionary may apply for residency. After that, work can begin in earnest on a second missionary.
