Hi friends, I know it’s been long that I blogged. I apologize.
I have had to deal with a lot, have no secretary and our staff is really thin. I hope to settle down soon and getting back on blogging twice a week.
I am currently in the United States of America for both a discipleship training with the Keystone Project at South Dakota as well as enjoying vacation with the lovely friends the Lord has given me over the last few years.
So far my best experience is captioned in the title above. I would say I am having a taste of liberty.
The United States chief ideals are liberty and the pursuit for happiness. Looking back where I come, Africa, I think we have not had any of the two.
I will give you my first example is this. I have spent the last twenty-five years in three countries: Nigeria, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. In all these countries and in fact, all African countries, a citizen or the ordinary joe has not access to a mile without the Presidential Palace.
I arrived the United States on February 21 and the following day February 22 I was standing in front of the White House.
That was so incredible.
That was truly a taste of liberty. I felt like a caged bird let free. Finally, I felt important enough to stand in the presence of the President of the United States. And yet African Presidents don’t think we are important enough to get near the People’s House.
Now if coming before the White House gave me such and incredible feeling dignity and freedom, imagine how incredible it is to have freedom standing in the presence of the Father of our Lord Jesus and the Maker of the Universe?
When we come into the presence of God, we find freedom from sin, freedom for fear, freedom from sicknesses and diseases, we find freedom from the authority of death.
This feeling should be incredible.
In the presence of earthly rulers, we may not be qualified to stand before rulers of the earth, it is a great blessing to know that we have access to the Maker of all things.
When we stand in God’s presence we find:
a.            We find mercy and love.
b.            We find security.
c.             We find life.
d.            We find forgiveness and eternal life
 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find ret for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

  1. We are so happy to have you here. Hopefully you can bring back to Africa the thirst for Liberty and the ability to pursue what makes you happy to the people of Africa.
    I pray for you and all the struggles of the people of Africa every day.
    I hope one day that we have an Africa that is free where people can live without fear of being murdered for their beliefs.
    An Africa where peace and prosperity are abundant and strife and fear are a by gone memory.
    With the help of God and the diligence of you and the African people, I believe this is a possibility.
    I am so lucky to have met you on facebook many years ago and hope this is only the beginning of a life long friendship.

  2. Hi Dave, love that so many doors are opening for you. Next time you come to America you must come to Texas.

    Africa is in our prayers. Jesus is moving across the continent of Africa.

    You, Gloria, the children and your ministry is always in our prayers.
