Nations Come to Us
By Rev. Fuxia Wang
Jesus commands his followers in Matthew 28:18-20 to go and make disciple of all nations. In our context, we have found that we do not have to go very far to reach the nations. The nations have come to us. Currently, 185 international students from 21 different countries and 5 different continents are ministered to through our international ministry at OU Wesley.
We have much to celebrate as we are poised to be used by God to make an even greater impact for the Kingdom in the future. In the last year, our Chinese international ministry has
Completed the construction of a brand new, debt-free international office suite.
Expanded our staff by bringing on Gloria Ajino as our Associate Minister. Gloria was a native from Nigeria. She was a legal practitioner in Nigeria before she came to OU for her master’s degree in 2013 when she became a part of the Wesley family. At that time she became more aware about her calling to ministry and reaching out to people. She graduated from OU with a Master's Degree in Energy Law in 2014. Currently, she is serving as a full-time staff as the International Associate Director and was also leading the prayer group and discipleship groups at the Wesley. She has started her 5th semester towards Master of Divinity at Asbury Theological Seminary, she is now a certified candidate for the Ordained Ministry in the United Methodist Church.
Had 12 baptisms or professions of faith in 2019
We had over 70 professions of faith in the past 12 years and 14 alumni who returned to China and are currently serving in leadership roles in the house churches. Fuxia returns to China every summer on a mission trip as a way to support these house churches and baptized 35 people this past summer.

Abundant Blessings! (Ephesians 3:20)
