Eddy spent some time explaining the vision of Chrisma Ministries with the purpose of raising a team that will do the work in the Great Lakes Region. This could only be achieved through understanding and conceiving the vision. He also trained on the calling and characteristics of an evangelist. Wherever Chrisma team put their feet during crusades or missions we call for emerging evangelists who are ready to be trained in this ministry.
The seminar was blended with `business training by Godfrey who started on a high note that its of great value to know that times we are living in. The gospel is expensive and we need money to reach out. This will be possible with successful business. He trained the importance of generation of business ideas, citing five predictors of business success as faith, self-discipline, passion, talent and determination. The training left many challenged to reach out and also believe God for a business to raise money for the kingdom.
One of our team members in Eldoret was able to generate some small capital and started a Kiosk with his wife where they sell basic foodstuffs, sweets, and drinks on a small scale. With this additional income, these hard working Christians are able to look after some other family members. They also have a burden to reaching the lost with the gospel while being able to take care of the finances needed for their ministry. How much better would they and other evangelist in business in this rural area perform, given more financial resources.
