The Port Harcourt District of southern Nigeria, which was established in 2021, has identified Bonny Island, located off the coast of Nigeria, as a target location to begin to grow the Church of the Nazarene. 

Using a church that has been in existence there since 2006 as their launchpad, District Superintendent Obinna Robinson formed a three-member District Evangelism and Church Planting Movement Team to Bonny Island for a four-day evangelism outreach.

Bonny Island is only accessible by boat and proved to be a challenging location to reach, but the team was resolute and put their fears behind them. Along with JESUS Film equipment and the help of the pastor, Usen Ezekiel Thompson, and his wife, Princess, the team saw many local residents drop what they were doing to come and watch the film. 

The local church was revived and encouraged to keep working hard as many new connections were made on the island. People testified to what God accomplished through their evangelism work, and the team capped off the four-day project during a Sunday service with the entire Bonny Island congregation.

This JESUS Film evangelism team is also determined to return to Bonny Island to help in the expansion of the church in this location. The Church of the Nazarene in Nigeria requests continued prayer for the work of the church in their country.
