I built steps on our porch so Jeannie can climb out of the canoe
After her hip replacement steps are very difficult for her.

Jeannie and I standing on our down stairs porch.
We have waterfront property, all the way around our house

The first time Jeannie saw our living room and kitchen she cried.
We could see the people down below through the floor and rats
could come in everywhere. There were holes in the walls as big as soft balls.

First I installed a new floor and put up inside walls Then we built cabinets, bought a sink and a propane 2 burner stove and purchased this table and chairs. She loves her apartment now.

A Brief Report

I left Makoko Wednesday,
March 24th to an amazing surprise
"Farewell Event" planned by the Bale
and people of the village.
About 50 canoes gathered
at my house and people lined
the waterways with signs saying
"Dave Douglass, We Love You,
We will Miss You"
All through the village people
waved and thanked me
for coming as about
100 people accompanied me
in canoes to the dock.
I will put a video of that
"Boat Parade" on the Blog
when I arrive home.
- - - - - - -
More than 3,000 people
trusted Christ
in the Village of Makoko
during the 52 days
I lived with them.
272 Children now receive
a Christian Education
Calvary Baptist Church of Makoko
has a full time pastor
and One Hundred and Eleven
Egun People have been Baptized.

Bale and I on the last day

After our church service today and after baptism
Pastor Abundy and the Bale and I met to make
arrangements to begin registering students in our
school. We will begin registration tomorrow morning.
The Bale has been so supportive of our ministry.

More than 200 attend 106 Baptized - Sun Mar. 14th

Sunday school upstairs in my living room - 100 Children
Before Church began people were coming
I preached a brief message then Bro. Chris
brought a tremendous message on Acts 16: 31
Notice how clear the water is as we began baptzing.
After 100 baptized the water looked like the Lagoon!

Meet my "Other Mother" a precious Muslim Lady.
This is the mother of Kutirat, the girl I led to Christ a few
weeks ago. She treats me like her son and is so sweet to me.
I could not get her to smile for the photo but when
she smiles at me her eyes squint and disappear.
I am determined to win her to Christ before I leave Nigeria.

Thursday Morning I preached at this school in Lagos
Once again the students listened to the Word of God and many
gave their hearts to Jesus in the invitation.
Sharing some things with the principal after the preaching.

Girls School Near Makoko - Wed. March 10, 2010

I preached this morning at this Girls School close to Makoko

There are 600 students but some were preparing for an exam and unable to attend the meeting.

The students that did assemble received me with a
wonderful welcome. They laughed at my jokes and
listened to the message very attentively .Several of the girls helped me by holding up the visual aids.
Praying with the girls as more than 200 trusted
in Jesus Christ to save them.
