EQUIPPING BEFORE APPEARANCE

I needed help with clearing the weeds in the compound. For weeks, I tried reaching out to a young man who helps me regularly. When I eventually saw him, he explained to me that the reason he had not come was that he had no tools. His cutlass got spoilt on his last job. He promised to show up once […]

PRIDE WILL REDUCE YOU

A dear elderly one in the ministry was confronted and asked why she would be attending a church founded and pastored by someone that is far younger than her.

I simply told her that, “She should go to church”. I honestly felt overwhelmed. I could not explain to her what was wrong. Then I began to […]
