I have been in Harare since Monday night and it's great to be back. I brought a traveling companion along who is a pastor from Pittsburgh. This is his first trip to Africa and he's speechless. He has seen so much and it's all good. I know that he will go home and impact his church from what he has seen and experienced here. He is already talking about a return visit.
I love Zimbabwe and have been coming here since 1995. The people are fabulous and the land is beautiful. Today I spoke to a lunchtime gathering of believers at the African Banking Corporation. It was only a 45-minute session, but I know I connected with the people there as I talked about, what else, The Purpose Craze. I tried to tie my remarks to their industry and to their personal development. I got an email tonight inviting me back before I depart at the end of September.
I wish I could get that kind of response in the States, but if I did, I probably wouldn't be coming here as often as I do. God knows how to open and close doors and there is an open door for the purpose message and me here. When I come, however, I want to bring others with me so they can see firsthand just how delightful it is here. Otherwise, they just won't believe me when I try to tell them.
Have you thought about coming to Africa? Then what are you waiting for? Planes leave every day with empty seats. Make up your mind to come and then take steps to make it happen. If I can help you come, write me and I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, I have to go. I need to get some rest for tomorrow is going to be another busy but great day in Zimbabwe!
