Jonathan & Christiana Adeboye
TOMGNET is an indigenous mission organization first established in Nigeria in 2004 and later in the US through the instrumentality of Rev. Jonathan Adeboye. Prior to this Jonathan had served for over 25 years at top leadership level in Christ for Rural Areas Ministry (CRAM), also an indigenous Nigerian mission organization. TOMGNET’s vision is to see the earth “full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9).
TOMGNET’s mission statement is to “walk worthy of Christ, plant churches, proclaim liberty to the captives, impact humanity with God’s love and promote inter-agency cooperation for accelerated kingdom expansion.” They do so globally and among the unreached people, in particular through 1) a holistic approach to missions work; 2) indigenous Church planting; 3) the promotion of collaborative efforts among churches, mission agencies, Christian groups and individual missionaries with similar vision; and 4) being a channel through which God diffuses the fragrance of His love to humanity, by undertaking community development projects (CDPs).
On the ground, TOMGNET has three missions fields where they have/are planting churches: Baruba (the Kwara State of Nigeria, reaching out to animists who have been culturally Islamized), Niger Republic (predominantly Islamic), and the Benin Republic (the youngest of their fields, but the fastest growing. They have 4 missionaries and 17 missions stations there). Jonathan and his wife Christiana oversee 11 missionaries throughout these regions at this current time among many other social programs they are working on.

I trust that all is well with you and family. The Lord has been so good to us since the beginning of the year.
We have had successful mission outreaches to both our Niger and Benin Republics mission fields.
In the month of February I traveled to Benin Republic to buy two motorbikes and present them to our missionaries there. We got another donor for the motorbike need expressed in my last report at Valley Bible Church.
The attached pictures tell the story of the motorbikes presentation.
You will be hearing More from me in due course.
Thanks for your loving support for the King's business in our hands.
In Christ's love,

Dear Brothers in Pleasanton,
Thank you for praying for us. After a time of praying and fasting considering many factors we decided to move to Oradea - west part of Romania. Lajos accepted to pastor the Hungarian Baptist Church there. The need there is huge, our gifts of evangelism and pastoring have to be used more intensively than here in Udvarhely. It is good that the Lord strengthens us with his word each day so we become more and more convinced about the future and hope He promised us and for the church here in Udvarhely too.
Our children also are pleased with moving even if it is not easy for us. Please pray for us as we start the Outreach for Teens next week and also we will do the Mark drama on the 25th of August in the Church in Udvarhely just right before we move. We want to invite all our non christian friends to this event not just to say good bye but for sharing the gospel with them.
After all the camps we are a little bit tired, but full with joy (As a family we lead about 5 six days-camps this summer for children, families, disabled children and adults). We are also thankful for the opportunity we had to get away with the family for vacation. We were camping at the Black Sea for a week this month.
Thank you for your prayers and support. With this move we need it more than ever.
We really think and pray about the possibility if you could come and visit us again. A smaller or a larger group. Both would be appreciated. In the past when I visited you, (just before Carol Porter went to be with the Lord) we talked with Steve and Sharon Collard that they could help us in the ministry we do with young families here (on topics like marriage, raising children). Youth and children work is also in need here... Please pray and if you feel God is leading to visit us and serve among us, please come.
May God bless you in everything you do.
Pastor Lajos and Evódia Budai
