The Iowa Nigeria Partnership, better known as the INP, has a new leadership team. On January 9, 2016, Sue Kromminga (chairperson), Julie Kinsella (vice chairperson), and Arlona Fredrickson (Financial Secretary) were voted in as the new leadership team. Other board members include Mark Fransdal, Chris Congdon and Tom Shinkle.
Each of these women, Sue, Julie and Arlona, have put their feet on the ground in Nigeria and found God placed this mission on their hearts. They have grown to love the people, and what God is doing in hearts of the poorest of the poor. God is moving in Nigeria. God is making a difference. The relationships being developed are becoming friendships built on trust, love, and respect.
All the members of the leadership team share a passion for the mission/ministry in Nigeria which motivates them to continue supporting projects that have been started but not yet complete. The team plans to work with the Nigerian partners to be the hands and feet of Christ in a country so hungry for the Good News. Together Iowa will see lives change and be changed just as the Nigerians will be.
As you can see in the video above, the children’s faces show the love of Jesus. Just look at the smiles and hear the sweet voices sing praises to our God. We cannot stop helping the people of Nigeria. Providing basic needs and an education spreads faster than you can imagine. Think of it—a child learns to read, shares this knowledge with his/her siblings, and then with his/her parents, the others in the village and so and so on.
We will continue to provide updates on the transition and news from Nigeria. God is alive working through people just like you and me all over the world. The INP is alive, carrying out the mission God laid on Iowa's heart to minister to the people of Nigeria.
Members of the leadership team would like to share with you the experiences and the work you have been supporting over the years. Please call Sue Kromminga, 319-269-4643 to request a program for your church community.
