Ben Kwashi, Bishop of Jos in Northern Nigeria, was sitting behind me on the platform.Jos is located in a very, very dangerous and difficult part of that land.When you hear Ben's stories you understand the suffering and the trials that they have endured.As I spoke those words, Ben stood and approached the microphone."Could I say something?"he asked.With permission granted, he declared, "We are forming a SOMA in Nigeria!Over these last few days I've been talking to some of my Nigerian colleagues here at the conference, and we agree that God is calling us to form a SOMA in Nigeria."His face was shining, and as he raised his hands in praise of the Lord the place went wild.
