Moving God’s Agenda in Leadership

Moving God’s Agenda in Leadership

“The vision to evangelize the cities in Africa is key and we must ensure it does not die. The Africa we want is about pursuing policies toward self-reliance – but rarely do we ask ourselves: What is the Africa God wants? Too many times, we are pursuing our agenda and not God’s agenda. When all is said and done, as we serve people and seek God’s will for them, God’s will is for their freedom, not oppression. The oppression of people is caused by sin,” says Rev. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, the President of Malawi.

I have lost one of life’s dearest, most precious and most loyal friends. John and his first wife Rona, who died a number of years ago, both came to the Lord during our first ever mission which took place in Pietermaritzburg in August 1962, which will be 60 years ago, this August. Hard to believe.

Michael’s Testimony: Overcoming Challenges Experienced During South Africa’s 1994 Elections

Michael’s Testimony: Overcoming Challenges Experienced During South Africa’s 1994 Elections

Michael faced many challenges in the few years running up to South Africa’s historic 1994 first democratic and non-racial elections. The threats facing the country were enormous, even after Mandela was released in early 1990 and the liberation movements unbanned by President FW de Klerk. In many ways, the basic challenge was listening for guidance and then just fulfilling the next step as shown by the Lord in obedience. Even if the steps seemed modest in nature. But Michael and the AE team had to believe that whatever the Lord led them to do could have significant consequences.

The AE Vision That Has Led To This Day

The AE Vision That Has Led To This Day

I heard the voice of the Lord. It was a pivotal moment in my life and the Word was clear and unmistakable. “Why not in Africa? I want you to do evangelism in the cities of Africa.” Over and out! I was startled, even shocked, because I only saw myself as capable of evangelizing young school boys as a Christian School master and I was terrified of public speaking. I tried to protest my inability but the message of the Voice persisted.

Celebrating Festo Kivengere: A Short Biography

Celebrating Festo Kivengere: A Short Biography

Kivengere was known as a great storyteller and often thrilled his own and other’s children with his storytelling skills. A favourite story of his: “One day a little girl sat watching her mother working in the kitchen. She asked her mummy, ‘What does God do all day long?’ For a while the mother was stumped, but then she said, “Darling, I’ll tell you what God does all day long. He spends his whole day mending broken things.”

Ebenezer: Thus Far the Lord has Helped Us

Ebenezer: Thus Far the Lord has Helped Us

As we look back over 60 years of ministry in our beloved continent of Africa with its corruption, its wars, its pandemics, droughts and famines, we could easily cry out “thus far has the Lord helped us”. We have carried out ministry in the most straining conditions, we have survived financial crises, scarcity of staff and resources, internal issues that at times rocked the ministry and threatened to divide us. But here we are, still standing together, strong, going from victory into victory in service to the Lord and his people.

Reconciling the Past through Forgiveness

Reconciling the Past through Forgiveness

In the book “Spiritual Disciplines Handbook”, Miroslav Volf says, “It is so crucial to see our forgiving not simply as our own act, but as participation in God’s forgiving. Our forgiving is faulty. God’s forgiving is faultless. Our forgiving is provisional. God’s is final… The only way we dare forgive is by making our forgiving transparent to God’s forgiving and always open to revision. After all, our forgiveness is only possible as an echo of God’s.”

One Love, One Family, One Ministry

One Love, One Family, One Ministry

The great joy for me also as I look back on the 60 years is the inescapable fact that because of our adoption into God’s family we are consequently sisters and brothers in the same family. We may have different backgrounds, come from different tribes, nations and cultures but we are one. That I think is the great witness to the power of the gospel and the great witness of AE in its ministry.

God Keeps His Promises

God Keeps His Promises

Sixty years of life has brought many changes in politics, technology and society. Personally, it has also brought me many changes in both happy and challenging times which make me rely on God’s promises such as like Isaiah 46:4. There God says that even as our bodies have aged towards the days of ‘grey hairs’ He will sustain and carry us as He has always done.
