I first heard Dr. John Haggai preach at the large, stately Peachtree Christian Church in downtown Atlanta when our pastor, Rev. Jim Collins, was traveling in Israel. Having a heart for missions, I knew his directive “don’t save up for Heaven, spend it on Earth!” was a strict admonition to many laying up “storehouses of treasures” on Earth. I shifted my company E-Learning Experts that year due to the large International Conference and each January, was so honored to sit with Rev. Jim Collins as we heard so many leaders from around the world and their testimonies of training leaders for Christ. We sent dozens of Dr. Collins’ book on Christian marriage, which I had carefully edited, to Indonesia and Christians around the world. I continue to serve and empower Christian ministers in India and Kenya, my “sons of thunder”, and despite their persecutions, they remain strong testaments to power of the Gospel and “Great Commission” we are all commissioned to enact during our short time on Earth. I pray to be a vessel like my mentors, and remember Dr. Haggai’s insight when he was in Switzerland: empower those around the world with the exponential factor and Christ’s light WILL shine!
