I had the privilege of attending and speaking at the Every Nation West Africa conference in Lagos Nigeria last week, and what an incredible experience it was! Hosts Pastor Sam & Grace Aiyedogbon have been good friends of ours for many years and do a fantastic job of leading in that region. This was Africa passion and praise at its finest. We all had our speaking and workshop input and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive, but Pastor Rice Broocks delivered some of his finest preaching (can’t wait to have him at our West Europe SHINE conference in London in October). He also wrote 2 incredible songs right at the conference which brought the house down. Below in one photo he is conducting a spontaneously formed mass youth choir singing his “Africa will be saved” song – it was an incredible moment! I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story, except to say that in my books Lagos now gets my gold medal for the most chaotic traffic in the world! (With the silver going to Xi’an China, and the bronze to Manila, Philippines!)
I’m still trying to upload some crazy traffic & crazy praise videos, but here are some pics…
Thank you Pastor Sam & Grace and your whole team of great men & women who did an incredible job – Africa is the better for all of you!

Your messages and seminar talk were encouraging and a blessing to some of us trying to for small groups in our places of assignments. Please, could you do me a favour by sending Tosin’s seminar notes on campus ministry and other materials that will help us to groom the group and the connnect group. I was in your semniar talk and was really blessed. Thanks for allowing God to make you a blessing to Africa and Nigeria in particular.
Thanks for the encouragement Tella. I will get Tosin to get back to you on His notes. you can search for some leadership and Connect group meterials on our London leaders blog site at hppt://leadersENlondon.wordpress.com. God bless you all in Nigeria!
