Hey friends its mercy again from Zambia and this is the last blog and I want to share my entire experience during my time of my internship here it has been a wonderful journey. Here is how the whole journey began, in 2011 the Lord spoke to me about the internship and I never took it serous, in 2014 the Lord spoke again about the same program through someone else this time and he spoke about three times in 2014 and I was supposed to do the program that time but I couldn’t because I had no money to do it that time but the lord continued speaking about it and at last am here. My challenges has been cross culture, been the oldest sometimes i feel disrespected, waking up early in the morning to prepare for class, sitting in class for four hours after a long time and because I have been doing ministry I felt like people expected a lot from me above all the Lord has been so gracious and he has been teaching me a lot through it all. I have learned to be content with what I have, to continue standing in the truth because the Lord is truth, never to allow any look down on me, to have the Lords attitude and be positive all the time, The Lord has also been reviewing himself to me as my father and that hes pleased with me, nothing can separate me from his love and am safe with him because he guides my path I have also been learning to find peace in him even when things in my life are rough.
In a few days, I’ll walk out of this program very ready to share what I have learned because I believe the Lord has invested a lot in me and am so eager. We had very powerful teachers from different walks of life that the Lord used to minister to us and my high light from topics we covered was are (1)Before you lead people you need to know who called you because if you don’t know who call you then you’ll be leading from a place of insecurity so you can’t celebrate the people that are following you(2)there is difference between a boss and a leader, a boss orders his people what to do and a leader leads a way (3) injustice is a result of spiritual power (4) the Lord can’t send you to the place where he has never been every place he sends you he has been there before that’s why be sent Jesus to show us the way.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank the lord for allowing me to take part in this program, it has really been a point of growth I also thank all the leaders of our ministry for just allowing the Lord to speak through them. May the good Lord bless you for the wonderful work you are doing of raising a generation that seeks the Lord and helping young people finding their true identity in Christ. Thank you once again.
