Trusting God Amidst Economic Pressure in Zimbabwe

TOPICS IN THIS STORY

AfricaBecause of the GLS

The Global Leadership Summit in Harare, Zimbabwe kicked off with a record attendance of close to 600 attendees. By end of second day, our numbers had gone up to 631 registrations! What a Mighty God we serve! The impact was amazing! Most of the attendees said, “this is the best Summit ever!”

But somehow we felt God saying, take your eyes off your circumstances and keep looking to me.

Interestingly, when we started marketing the GLS in mid-August after returning from Chicago, the response was not that great because of the prevailing turbulent economic times our country is going through right now.

Early on, this negatively affected our registrations to the point where our team wanted to postpone the Summit to the following year. But somehow we felt God saying, take your eyes off your circumstances and keep looking to me.

 

 

Thank God that I didn’t succumb to the economic pressures prevailing in Zimbabwe, but instead, trusted God and He came through for us beyond our expectations.
