In 1989 our vision was inspired when we reached out to Nigeria West Africa where we met Pastor Friday E. Nnah and wife Precious. Since then we have endeavored to be of service to them. Because of Pastor Nnahs devoted service to God and the peoples of his country, a special missionary account was establishes for the on going work of his ministry to receive donations legally.

On Sunday the 6th of August 2017, the Abundant Living Schools, which is the Educational Arm of Okuenyi Orphange and Destiny Development Center (ODDC), graduated her first batch of pupils - of Pre-Kindergarden & Kindergarden class. As the graduands marched into the hall,one could see the glow and excitment on their faces. There was no doubt, that the children were filled with joy!!!
For those of us who know the story of these children, we could not help but share in their excitment; some of us even go to the point of emotions. This is because we know that these children would have been doomed for life, but for the intervention of good spirited individuals like you.
The valedictorian Master Ukandu Wisdom who read the address on behalf of the graduating class said "we also thank God that the journey we started in September last year - not knowing how to read, write nor speak simple English is ending today with joy as we graduate." Another wonder of the day was when Miss Miracle Anthony did a news presentation in French. Everyone present was amazed as to how much the minds of these kids have been transformed in so short of time.
Besides the academic and interllectual prowess displayed by the children there was also, Art and Dance Exhibitions, attesting to the all round development being given to the kids.
The children were full of thanks and appreciation to all their benefactors who have invested in their lives thus far, and offered this heartfelt prayer. Again, Master Ukandu Wisdom said, "our wonderful proprietor and proprietress, God bless you for providing this conductive learning environment for us with foreign teaching materials to achieve high standard and quality education; most especially, for employing qualified teachers to teach us. May God answer all your prayers and fulfill your dreams in Jesus name. Amen. To all our friends from across the nations who not only visit, but assist us in various ways, especially Papa and Mama (Pastor John and Sally Stevenson - USA, may God Bless you all in Jesus name. Amen.
The teachers have done so great a job and promised to do even more if there will be a little encouragement in the provision of the necessary amanities to enable them to carry out their duties.
The Board and Management are encouraged by the results achieved so far and consequently plead with you and other good spirited individuals and organization to assist us in fulfilling this onerous task of inspiring Dream, Equipping Minds & Molding Destinies. Who knows what that boy or girl you have helped today will become tomorrow.
Thank you so much for being part of this great dream.
Pastor, Friday Nnah
The 2017 edition of International prayer gathering for our city Aba was held on January 14th. This yearly prayer gathering brings together Christians from different denominations in the city. The effect of this united prayer can be seen by all and sundry in the city. The attention our current State Government is giving the city in the area of infrastructure, which the past Governors neglected, is seen as an answer to the corporate prayer of the City Church. Other good things have also started happening. The prayer gathering fosters unity and addresses other issues in the city. During this prayer, salient issues about the city and the state for the year are addressed.
God's goodness and faithfulness continues to be evident in our entire Ministry. Looking back and seeing what He has done in all the arms of this Ministry, and in the lives and families of our Pastors - men who put their lives on the line for the Gospel - and in the lives and families of our members, friends and Ministry Partners, we can say for sure that it is nothing else but the Goodness and Faithfulness of God.
The Grand Opening Ceremony of the Orphanage took place on January 26, 2017. This special event attracted people from all walks of life. Our State Governor was represented by his Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ikechi Mgbeoji. The attendees were very pleased with what our friends and supporters - like you - do for these vulnerable and helpless Orphans by giving them a home and an educational institution unlike anything in our area. Thank you so much for making this happen.
It is heart warming to inform you, that most of the orphans, who before the 26th of January were coming from their respective foster homes to school at the orphanage, have now moved into the orphange and taken up residence. Our state of the art facilities provide these the kind of living place they have never experienced before. For the first time in their life, these children have bathrooms with indoor plumbing, showers and good toilets, beautiful dormitories and a high standard, well equipped education facility. I wish to thank all our partners, and all those involved for helping us too make their experience a reality.
Please keep praying for these precious children that the love they are receiving will bring them into a stronger relationship with Jesus. Also, pray for provision, as it cost $110. per month to sponsor one Orphan. This covers his/her feeding - three meals a day, clothing, personal and medical care, school tuition, school books and field trips. The Orphanage School also accommodates other poor children in the vilages. They come to school daily from their homes. For these children, it costs $100 per academic year.
Sponsorhip can be done through The Unveiling Ministries: 10962 Katepwa St. Apple Valley, CA 92308. When filling out your check (we ask that you please indicate in the memo line: For Bishop Friday Nnah Missionary Account.

The Bible is rich with scriptures on prayer, such as: 2nd Corinthians 1:11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf. We ask that all of our friends near and far who partner with our ministry in Nigeria, please pray for the following prayer request. Thank you so much for your partnership.
Pastor, Friday Nnah
1) Please pray for all missionaries who are serving in difficult places for divine protection and provisions.
2) Pray for Nigeria that the evil forces against the country will fail. More Doctrines of opposition to the teaching of Christ are receiving Jesus as their personal savior. Pray that they will withstand the persecution from their own people.
3) Pray for our different ministry outreaches for more impact: The Medical and Widows Outreaches, Economic Empowerment for Rural Women.
4) Pray for Strong Tower Christian Academy Students.
5) Pay for Okuenyi Orphanage and Destiny Development Center that these precious children will experience life transformation and do well in school.
6) Pray for us, our Pastors and their families.
The most important relationship of your life is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you would like to to receive HIM as your Lord and Savior, and enter into the greatest relationship you have ever known, then pray (recite) the prayer below:
"Father, you loved me so much that you gave your only begotten Son (Jesus) to die for my sins and that whoever believes in you will not perish, but have eternal life. Your word says that I am saved by Grace through Faith as a gift from you. There is nothing I can do to earn Salvation. I believe and confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is your Son, the Savior of the World. I believe He died on the Cross for me and bore all my sins, and paying the price for them by the shedding of your Blood.
I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins and I ask you to forgive me. I believe in my heart that you raised Jesus from the dead and that He is alive and that He now lives in me, I now, by faith receive you Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe that I'm saved and I will spend eternity with you. Father, I am so grateful. Amen."
Now that you have received Jesus Christ into your life, it is important you are Baptized in water, because there is a diference between Salvation and being Born Again. Professing only with your mouth to repent of your sins is receiving Salvation.
The Bible (Word of God) makes it clear the importance of Water Baptism, which is being Born Again. Jesus himself was Baptised as indicated in Mathew 3:16 and is our example. In Acts 2:38 Peter, said unto them, "repent and be Baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
Finally, it's imortant to fellowship with other faith believers. Attending a church that teaches the Word of God in its entirety is important. If you would like to receive a Bible (at no charge) please refer to our Contact Page and specify your request.
