A Place Where God’s Story Becomes Your Story in Zambia
“I started attending the GLS in 2010. I remember the first session that I attended, and hearing one of the speakers talk about how he started, and had a big dream—he wanted to love people and transform people. And I remember one particular story that he told about how the men in the church rose up, and have weekends where they get together to fix cars for single moms, and change oil, and give out stuff to people in need. That idea was actually already in my heart to do, but I just didn’t know how I would do it. When I heard someone else tell their story, it became my story.
Today, I run a non profit organization, and right now we have a school that caters to orphans and the less privileged. We have 156 kids that we’re reaching. Apart from that, we reach out to widows, and we also reach out to local pastors. That dream was really ignited at the Summit. God has really touched my heart by being a part of the GLS.
Because of some of the business leaders who spoke at the Summit, last year, along with my wife, I got my church to register at a consultancy firm. Now we’re in a consultancy firm that works in training and development; we go into the marketplace and provide godly leadership training. I believe for Africa to be transformed, it has to be Africans rising up, transforming Africa. For me, that’s a big dream. This is just the beginning. The best is yet to come.
I want people to know that the GLS is not just another event, but it is a place where you can contact God. It’s a place where God’s story becomes your story, and your story changes other people’s lives, and gives them hope.
It gives them extraordinary courage to do what they’ve always wanted to do, but thought they couldn’t do because of circumstances, or because of the political atmosphere, or economic struggles. Receiving extraordinary courage is life changing. It’s empowered me, and it’s encouraged me to step up in faith and bring transformation. Are you wondering if the GLS is something for you? The GLS is for everybody! It is transforming, and you have to be there to experience it. Be a part of what God is doing on this earth in this generation.”
