Attemp Great Things for God, Expect Great Things from God

Greetings! As I post this, I am on my way to Tel Aviv, Israel. There is the adage that success isn't how far you’ve gotten, but the distance you have traveled from where you started. It is perhaps a good measure for us at SWIM as we commemorate five years of global ministry. Nineteen years ago as a teenager and recent high school graduate, I started off from my village in Western Kenya. I felt a need to respond to the strong call on my life to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations. It is a great joy of mine to see that God has fulfilled this desire and allowed me to do exactly that. When I started, I did not have money, formal training, or connections. But I loved God passionately and cared about people, especially where they would spend eternity. I knew I had a gift of an evangelist and pastor. I felt a sense that the call was global. The daunting question was how to get started. After a season of fasting and prayer, I followed the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
