“For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the Lord our God is to us, whenever we call upon him? And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today?” (Deuteronomy 4:7-8)
As we get closer to the end of the year we say thank you to the Lord for how far He has brought us. Indeed, words cannot be used to describe the faithfulness and mercies of God.
Global Leadership Summit
Samson and Isaac were able to make it for this year’s Global Leadership Summit. It was a great opportunity of learning and getting enriched with diverse leadership experiences across the globe. There were series of “take aways” including the following:
“Face your fears and you are on your way to overcoming it” “Failure is actually part of success so it is not the end of the road” “Vision is the ability to see hope in a mess and visionary leadership is the ability to offer direction to bring about change even in the midst of a mess” and “The challenge which arises whiles leading with integrity sharpens your mind and produces excellence in you”.
Another Pastors conference was organized by the Seed Ministry and the Larry MacFadden ministries with a focus on the life and preaching of the Pastor alongside lessons on worship. Samson successfully defended his title as the winner of the previous memory verse challenge by reciting all the 15 memory verses for the competition.
