Oval Callout: “Talks were overwhelmingly practical. This makes application very easy. I am off to an exciting, lasting marriage!”23 July 2002

 

“A Weekend to Remember” brought together 76 Nigerian couples, ranging from eight months to 30 years of marriage, for a concentrated time of marriage building. Couples from across Nigeria converged in Jos for this special weekend. The couples’ comments assure us this weekend will long be remembered and have a lifetime impact.

Oval Callout: “It has really helped me to praise and encourage my husband in public.”The speaking team from the U.S. Family Life ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ clearly bonded with the Nigerian couples.  Through humor and personal examples, they conveyed biblically-based principles of God’s purpose and plan for marriage, communication, conflict resolution, and leaving a legacy.

Oval Callout: “It has helped me to see marriage as a sweet relationship that needs to grow perfectly to God’s glory.”But the future is perhaps even more exciting.  Prior to the conference 37 key Nigerian couples from all parts of the country were trained for three days in how to conduct “Weekends to Remember”.  The content included speaker training, financing a conference, publicity, and expanding the ministry through Home Builders small groups.  The “Weekend to Remember” conference that followed modeled the speaker training.

Oval Callout: “I learned to accept and be sorry for my faults and to forgive when I am wronged.”Follow-up from the conference is already underway.  Eleven couples met in our home to strategize and plan for new Home Builders groups in Jos, integrating many of the couples who attended the “Weekend to Remember.”  As we prepare to speak at a “Weekend to Remember” exclusively for executives in October, we are excited by the way God is accelerating the Family Life ministry.

Oval Callout: “It has revealed my many weaknesses and failures as a husband. It also proffered solutions to make me a better husband.”Thanks for joining with us in what God is doing to transform marriages in all corners of Nigeria.
