Man on a mission…
Six weeks ago, John Cornelius from Loads of Love and Evangel Church in Chatham, arrived at TTC here in Kitwe. John comes once a year to Zambia “as a man on a mission”.
Three years ago, he renovated the third floor of the prayer tower which has now become “The Robert Hall Ministry Formation Center”. It is from this tower that RTC leads its ministry to the Continent of Africa. This year, John’s mission was to start construction on the new chapel on the grounds of Trans Africa Theological College.
It never ceases to amaze me what can be accomplished by one man when he is on a mission. John has a gift in getting national workers to come alongside of him and work hard from early morning to late afternoon six days a week.
The chapel will seat eight hundred people when it is finished. The target date for completion and dedication of the facility is March 2014.
God, give us more John C’s. People who, in the midst of retirement, find a place to use their God given giftings. Thank you John for coming again this year to Zambia. Thank you for your passion, vision and hard work. Thank you for mentoring young Zambian men in the excellence of construction.
As you leave for Canada tomorrow, please know that you leave behind a structure that in a few months time, will be used to the glory of God. You are an incredible man, with an incredible mission. Those of us who have the privilege of getting to spend time with you on Zambian soil are always impacted by your life.
Until next Monday…
