January 4, 2017: Bridge of Faith Report from Nigeria Mission Trip
On their recent trip to Awka, Nigeria, the Bridge of Faith team of Felix Molokwu, Marge Royle and Doug Taylor visited four orphanages, providing them with food and books. At one orphanage, which was new to them, they found children living in very poor conditions, with little food or furniture. They returned from the local market with food, mattresses and other supplies which
will make a significant difference in the quality of the children's lives. In addition, small chairs, donated by the Hasbrouck Heights Community Church, and clothing donated by Faith UCC in Union, will be delivered shortly.
On New Year's Day, they met with the Governor of Anambra State and his wife, who have a special interest in and projects with orphanages, and hope to collaborate on efforts with them in the future.
The delegation also brought medical equipment to the University Hospital in Awka. They met with sports directors, coaches, and principals from several secondary schools to discuss the annual Football (soccer) Tournament as well as their needs. They sorted cartons of books and school supplies to be distributed to area primary and secondary schools and libraries. They were treated to a
presentation by the winning debate team in a contest among local schools.
The trip included opportunities to meet with other local officials and attend various New Year events. The warm welcome and hospitality of all the people they met will remain with them. Having seen the effect of their work on the lives of people in Nigeria, they returned reinvigorated to do even more.
