Eno Damo was a teenager in 1992 when he studied the Bible with the late Donna Rae using the WEI materials. Donna was a teacher in the very first WEI team that traveled to Albania that summer. Eno was so impressed when Sister Rae gave him her mother’s old Bible because Eno did not own one in English. Eno was a WEI postal student prior to the team’s arrival, so he was especially interested in studying with a native English speaker. He was also the first of 57 students to respond to the Gospel that summer in Albania. He and two others were baptized into Christ on August 2, 1992 by our WEI founder and author, Dr. Dick Ady.
Now, thirty years later, Eno and his wife Nadine are missionaries in Tbilisi, Georgia, and they have hosted the first WEI reception model effort in that capital city. Some very sweet students showed up for the reception and are eager to study one-to-one. Eno and Nadine will be using the same materials that brought Eno to the Lord. This illustrates how God works when we obey the Great Commission and follow the principles in 2 Timothy 2:2.
WEI-targeted advertising in Tbilisi for the last nine months has resulted in over 300 Internet Bible students in that city. Eno and Nadine will be using some of these contacts to begin personal Bible studies in a rented office they have named: World Bible Learning Center. This office will also serve as a worship location for the Lord’s church.
Eno moved to Canada a few years after becoming a Christian and met Nadine through church while they both attended university. Along with other university students they began a campus ministry that continued for 20 years until their departure to the States. Nadine has been a Sunday School teacher and coordinator for over 20 years and has developed a curriculum that is used worldwide. She has a website at sundayschoolbiblelessonsforkids.com offering the free curriculum, activities, etc. for churches. Both Eno and Nadine are active in teaching and evangelism.
They moved to Texas in 2021 to complete their degrees at Sunset International Bible Institute (SIBI) with an emphasis on missions. In Texas, during their schooling, they were blessed to work alongside the Hillside Church of Christ in Plains.
Nadine and Eno have worked with the Nakrekal Church of Christ in India for many years, teaching, establishing and maintaining two children’s homes for 21 children, and they hope to visit there shortly.
Within two weeks of finishing their degrees from SIBI, they launched this new mission effort in Tbilisi. Having been well-trained in all the complexities of mission work, they are more than capable of serving the Lord in this capacity. Praise God, and to him be the glory. The Damos are self-supporting and hope to start and build other projects such as this worldwide.
Partnership in the work of the Lord in Georgia to run the center, which includes the rental expenses of World Bible Learning Center and the worship location for the Church of Christ in Tbilisi would be appreciated.
