When we visited New York on deputation, we were thrilled see Ajibu Timbo and minister for Pastor LaFave in Ballston Spa! Ajibu Timbo, formerly a devout Muslim from Sierra Leone, Africa, attended Singapore’s Come Encounter Jesus Crusade; Bro. Lee Stoneking was preaching. This was the first time he had ever attended an Apostolic service. Ajibu was filled with the Holy Spirit and baptized in Jesus name! I remember he told me, “I pray 5 times a day and fast 30 days per year for Ramadan, but I never felt anything like this before!” He was only in Singapore a few months before he graduated from the United World College and entered university studies in the US. Thankfully we were able to connect him to a wonderful church in his area!
Ajibu now attends the UPC church of Ballston Spa, New York, pastored by Rev. LaFave, and studies at Skidmore College, a prestigious university, on a fully paid scholarship. Ajibu actively evangelizes on campus and in the city of Saratoga Springs. 30 students have attended campus ministry services; 6 students have been filled with the Holy Spirit; 5 students have been water baptized in Jesus name. Ajibu has invited many from the surrounding area to his church: 32 locals have attended church services; 2 have been filled and water baptized in Jesus name; several are in bible studies! Your investment into the Singapore harvest is now reaping the harvests of the US!
