Greetings in Jesus’ mighty name. My heart is filled with joy and gratitude. I write to express my inner most feelings of joy and gratitude for the unreserved love and care for me, my family, Mawanga church and ROWAN.
In Africa, we have got a saying that “he who does not appreciate is a witch,” and I would be the worst one if I do not say thank you for your spiritual, social, moral, material and financial support you have rendered me.
This is my word of encourage to you, my friends. I have a belief that giving is a spiritual investment, not an expense. For the bible says,
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6 (NIV)
God often compares giving to sowing seeds. Like a farmer, if you go out and sow a bunch of seeds, you’ll get a bunch of plants. If you only sow a few seeds, you’ll only get a few plants. And if you sow no seeds, you’ll get no plants. No farmer considers sowing seeds an expense. He sees it as an investment. He knows that if you don’t buy seed, you won’t have a farm.
When a farmer plants seeds, he’s excited about it; he’s hopeful about it. He has faith because he puts one corn seed in the ground and expects to get a whole corn stalk full of more seed than he put in. He looks forward to the harvest because he knows he’s going to be blessed. I, as Pastor Paul, say that whatever you sow, you are going to reap. You will reap more than you sow every time; you will always reap in a different season than you sowed.
God bless you,
Pastor Paul Nyende
