Bishop James Salako shares:  When God said the church would be an international one and gave me the list of some of the countries He would send us to,I said to myself but I do not know anybody in any of these countries.  But the best Evangelist and the Evangelist of the Evangelists is doing the work by Himself, spreading us far and wide; to Him be the glory and the honor!

Your Part in God’s Work

May we all be Workers and Servants for His Kingdom!​​​​​

  • ​​​​​Workers should be stable, firm and dependable.  The people should see them ​​​​​​​​​​as decision ​​​​​​​​makers and not blown around by every new idea they hear or by ​​​​​​​​​​every conflict that comes ​​​​​​​​their way.​​​​​​​
  • ​​​​​ Workers should be good listeners.  Listening is vital to communication and ​​​​​​​​​​takes up a large ​​​​​​​​percentage of another person, but receiving and ​​​​​​​​​​understanding what another person is trying ​​​​​​​​to communication.  It is possible to ​​​​​​​​​​hear and not listen nor understand. (Matthew 13:13)​​​​​​​​​
  • ​​​​​  Workers need to be peacemakers (James 3:18; Matthew 5:9).  Workers need ​​​​​​​​​​to watch out ​​​​​​​​and know how to deal with gossip, slander and misunderstanding, ​​​​​​​​​​all of which is ​​​​​​​​devastating​​​​​​​​ to the peace and unity of the Body of Christ.​​​​​​​​​
  • ​​​​​ Workers should not be fearful people especially in the area of witnessing (2 ​​​​​​​​​​Timothy 2:15)​
