FOCUS on Africa: Update from Bay
I suppose the theme I would choose for my trip to Ethiopia and Kenya with Unite4Africa, would be “Teamwork”. It was really a blessing to see God take such a diverse group of people and knit us together for His use. The comments from pastors and leaders in country were “You have really shown us how to work together as a team—not just individuals all wanting to be up front”.
In almost every setting, we evaluated the crowd, and chose a strategy of who would speak, when, and how much. As a story-teller evangelist, my responsibilities were to “paint a picture of the gospel”, and then one of our African pastors, who knew their culture and people, would do the altar call. Dr Okongo was powerful for before or after me, and especially impactful for pastors and leaders events.
