"Let not your heart be troubled..." Jn 14:1. "And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet" Matt 24:6. It's my pleasure to have this space to write to the world. More so, thanks to God for given me the opportunity. Life is an experience! What you experience today takes you to a higher level if you understands. Experience is the product of encounter. Jesus said that they must come. Yes, they come to make us. I don't know what you are presently passing through but I have good news for us, "do not be afraid" those things have come to make us. In a midst of distress I questioned God why, He made only a statement to me, "Great things happens to great men," and left. When He said this I shouted in my spirit, "so I am a great man!" From that moment I became stronger and courageous. I and my wife pass through severe hardship, trouble and distress in our seven years pastoral work. I just thank God for her. From the moment our marriage started trouble came. You know God can use men to seave you. Even when they are doing it with evil intention you can turn it to be an experience. We were never afraid in all these things. For one year now we got into another level of life and ministry. We give up our pastoral work with our local church for missions. Our local church is not mission oriented and does not want to, and that is where we are called, so we were asked to resign if we must go for missions and so we did. You know what it is to start a mission work with nobody sending or sponsoring you, in a land where nobody knows you, and where your church and s6e of your old friends regarded you to be an outcast for going to missios. And you don't have a valiable source of income and your children are there. "Yet we are not afraid". Now one year have gone, and we are happy with God who streghens us. It is an experience! I know that my God is making a way even right now, for "we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed...that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body" 2 Cor 4:8-10. I want to tell you that all these things must come to pass and yet we shall remain for the Lord. Do not forget any experince you pass through, for that makes you difference, and that is you. Go for missions. Make your church a mission church. God bless you.
