“Announcing the great spiritual awakening of Africa and advertising African Christian products to every corner of Africa and the rest of the world”
‘We owe our generation a debt that cannot be paid in our life time. We have to start paying this debt now. We must create a platform for imparting and passing the spiritual heritage of this continent to the next generations.” Dr. Elijah Maswangani
“An anointed but not announced man of God cannot affect his generation.” Dr. Enoch Sitima
It is time for the church on the continent of Africa to reclaim its spiritual legacy and pass it on, as a heritage, to the next generations. Failure do so, may cause her to sink into spiritual bankruptcy as she has sunk into economical bankruptcy in spite of her being the richest continent. Africa accounts for as much as 50% of the world’s diamond production. According to MBedi information for Africa, Africa has produced over 75%, in value, of the world’s diamonds with an estimated value of $US158 billion. From 1970 to date, South Africa alone has produced up to 57% of the world’s gold. South Africa accounts for about 80% of the total world annual mine production of platinum. According to the report posted on the internet by Richard Knight, Consultant, Africa accounted for 10.3% of worldwide crude oil produced in 2001. In 2003/04, about 72% of the global cocoa production was produced in Africa. Africa also has vast fertile farming land with plenty of water that can produce enough food for its inhabitants if utilized properly. There are many other minerals and wealth generating raw materials in Africa, which if utilized well could turn Africa into an economical giant. Yet Africans remain the poorest and most economically marginalized people.
My intention is not to discuss the economic state of Africa, but to prove the point that Africans remain the poorest people in the world, not because the continent has no wealth, but because the people of the continent have failed to extract the wealth of the continent for their benefit.
The church in Africa is going in the same direction when it comes to her spiritual heritage. The continent has had, and still has, some of the greatest men of God that the world has ever seen, and yet most African Christians know nothing about these men and women of God. Names such as Bengu, Ngidi, Ledwaba, Idahosa, Guti, Oyedepo, Kumuyi and Adeboye, just to mention a few, may sound strange to the majority of African Christians. Yet names like John G. Lake, Meyer, Copeland, Jakes, and Dollar, are known to almost all Christians on the continent. Almost every Christian bookshop in Africa carries books of the latter set of men of God. On the other hand, looking for books written by great men of God on the continent may be an impossible task.
