Short term thinking long term success

Abraham Kuper wrote in one of his news paper column:

We are working for the long haul. We aim not for the apparent triumph of the moment, but for the ultimate success for our cause. The question is not what influence we have now, but what power we will excise in half a centaury, not how few we have now, but how many of the young generation will take a stand for our cause.

Mohamed Bouazizi memorial

Years after graduation they are still roaming the street of Tunis, Abuja, Johannesburg, Nairobi and other African countries.

Unable to find employment some join criminal gangs, others opted for menial jobs and street vending.

On Dec 17th, 2010 when police shut down the vendor chart of Mohamed (apparently because he has no vendor permit) they never knew that they are about to start a revolution that will topple African dictators.  By Ositadimma Ejelike

It is Africa’s time

  • Walls predicted some thirty years ago that the agenda for Christianity and action would be set increasingly determined by the rising Christian movements from the global South.
  • He predicted that Africa would become the new heartland of the Christian faith.
  • Very few people, outside the realm of "mission studies," paid Walls any heed. Today, however, the signs are much more prevalent.
  • Today Christian schooling is growing in Africa like a wildfire.
  • You and me are called for such a time as this, to step up and take the lead.
  • Andrew F. Walls, now retired from the University of Edinburgh, See his "Towards Understanding Africa's Place in Christian History," in J. S. Pobee, ed., Religion in a Pluralistic Society (Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1976), 183.
