Mandu for Heaven Memorial Program

Our late and youngest Patron, Mrs. Mandu Uwem Andy passed away in a ghastly motor accident with five others on May 7 and was buried on 10th June 2016. On her birthday (14/9/2016) when she would have been 38 years old, our CE family (including our Patron in Jos, Plateau state in Northern Nigeria) gathered together to have a morning devotion and further consolation visit to her paternal family. Her late father Rev. Ephraim Udo who passed on in 2004 was a National President of Nigeria.

Our CE Union is working at establishing a memorial foundation to enhance her remembrance through projects that will encourage young lives and families through CE work. We would appreciate interests from CE, friends, families and partners Worldwide.

Flood in Assam

Mr. Kretofil Bhengra, General Secretary of CE in N.E. India, reported to CEiI, WCEU and relief organizations about floods in Assam and asked for help. He wrote that there are 5 villages in Sonitpur District and 3 villages in Lakhimpur District badly affected. About 1500 families in Sonitpur District and 1200 families in Lakhimpur District are suffering and need food and shelter. The houses are still under water and people are taking shelter temporarily at a school and at the road side. Government department is providing Rice, Dal and Salt only which are not sufficient according to the comments from the victims. Brother Bhengra visited the area on July 16th at Gohpur (Sonitpur Dist.)and on 17th July at Bhorolua (Lakhimpur Distr.). He found it will be great help if we raise funds to support these affected poor families. Some are Christians; CE members are also affected among the many from other religions. Kretofil Bhengra requests prayer for the affected people and donations to have means for helping them.

The Quadrennial Pacific Regional CE Convention

The Quadrennial Pacific Regional CE Convention for 2016 was hosted by the Solomon Islands CE Union in the city of Honiara on Guadalcanal Island from the 7th – 11th July 2016. This event was a wonderful time of fellowship and much praise time with inspirational music as we shared with 4 delegates from Australia, 2 from Germany, 18 from American Samoa, 8 from Samoa, including 2 Australian based pastors, 72 from Rennell Island and another group from Malaita Island as well as several Honiara Church groups, including the Kukum church youth group. The evening attendance was about 250 and the SI Convention Committee is to be congratulated on their management of the whole program with most participants allocated to take part in leading, praying, taking the offering and participating with musical items, during the services. Ministers from each country presented their messages based on the theme ‘Go for God’ in ‘Fellowship, Loyalty, Service, Witness and Worship’, emphasising the CE principles. Bible men of God such as Joshua, Paul and David and the early NT church were identified as examples we can learn from as we in CE increase our commitment to being followers of Christ and a witness to the world of Christian Love and peace. When challenged by Rev Tim Laesanau to follow especially Paul’s willingness to preach the Gospel to the  world, uniting mankind in the light of God, over 30 people stepped forward to promise they would serve the Lord in response to the challenge.   Teaching sessions on CE practices were given by Past Vice President Joyce Spicer and Graham Spicer with samples of Australian Literature being keenly snapped up, as all seemed to want more information on the main points that made Francis Clark’s Christian Endeavour a workable and long lasting discipling program for the Church. In Honiara we once more experienced that special fellowship that comes with belonging to CE and the unity of the world’s CE members is a precious gift. A big thankyou to Pastor Derek and Roselyn Pongi, Rev Tim Laesanau, Rev Moses Omearo, Pastor Sethrick Mae and Pastor Jerrilim Laufilu who managed the Convention with help from others.   The Regional Vice President, Rev. Faataape Lavatai’i has expressed a desire to invite the next Convention to his country of American Samoa in 2020 so we look forward to calling our CE countries to prepare for the next Regional event in 4 years time.
