Pastor William Nkea - Last Leg of Greece Trip
On his trip to Greece, Pastor William Nkea learned about God, and his divine love for all of Earth’s creatures and how that love transcends through language, setting and the universal spirit of compassion. Pastor William Nkea learned many of these things early in the trip, however they were never so encompassed as in the last few days of his trip, which are described below:
Sunday July 29
Visited with some brothers at Athens Evangelical church. I got the contact of a member yesterday at Corinth. They received my as an apostle and asked me to share the word. The Church was very warm and friendly. We had some good African meal after the service.
Sunday night was very interesting. Helen took us out to a Greek tavern for some food and theatre. Greek dancers in traditional costumes, danced to the tune of Greek folklore music. Some of the students joined in the dancing and it was so much fun. A great way to round up this very compact week in a relaxing fashion.
Monday July 30
Most of the group is sick today. A virus maybe. We held some group discussions after breakfast and we were allowed to do some roundup shopping .Departure would be tomorrow, but Pastor William Nkea went off on a private leg to Kavalla, then to ancient Philippi, Thessaloniki, and then Back to Athens. Incredible experience.
Thursday August 2
Left Athens for London, heading back home to Texas. This has been an experience of a lifetime. I have learned in a week, what I couldn’t have learnt in ten years. The experience has brought a very profound dimension to the Bible and I can see while reading.

Pastor William Nkea - The First Appearance of Wine in the Bible
Pastor William Nkea’s study on Christianity and the use of alcohol includes the story of Noah, the first man to drink wine in the Bible.
“The first man who reportedly used wine in the Bible, was Noah, the righteous man who found grace in the sight of the Lord. The Lord did not seem to have any problems with Noah planting a vineyard, making wine, and consuming it. If there was a lawful prohibition against the use of alcoholic wine, Noah, the survivor of the flood and the perpetrator of the human race, would have complied since the Bible repeatedly refers to him as a preacher of righteousness. When biblical narrative of the scripture is well examined, one would notice that it was not the wine but the reckless handling of it or abuse thereof, that led grave consequences;
Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When Pastor William Nkea drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.
When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said,
“Cursed be Canaan!
The lowest of slaves
will he be to his brothers. ”
The curse placed on an entire race of people for generations, can be directly traced to the non-judicious use of wine.”
