Bishop opened the  conference with a powerful sermon from the Gospel of Luke 15:11 on the prodigal son were he emphasised on the need to return to God.

  • God will forgive you whatever you have done - the prodigal son wasted all he on loose living, but he came to his senses and remembered were he came from.
  • There was repentance
  • He was received (the fathers heart was full of love and mercy)
  • With love he kissed him
  • Forgave him
  • Put a rob on him (A rob of righteousness)
  • Put a ring on him (Son ship)
  • Put Sandals on him (no longer a bond slave)
  • A calf was slaughtered for him (he was celebrated)

Whatever you have done Gods heart is full of mercies, return to Him and He is faithful and just to forgive you.

On the Second day, Bishop Preached on the power of a Dream - Genesis 37:5,

The world has been shaped and transformed by dreams, dreams build nations and generations.
There are dreams that come from God and when it is a dream from God:

  • It will be vivid
  • It lingers on
  • It will disturb you
  • It will generate an inquiring spirit

The purpose of this is to:

  • To encourage you
  • To confirm it
  • To warn you

You may look ordinary but you have a seed of destiny. Dreams are from God: Jacob, Joseph and Daniel, all had dreams from God.

Dreams give you direction and they reveal destiny.

But a dream can die.

  • Disappointment will kill a dream
  • Opposition can kill or threaten
  • Failure can kill a dream

You need to know that failure is not final. When you fail try again till you succeed. God has you at heart, He wants you to succeed.

In this year of fruitfulness you shall be fruitful. As you study at the university keep your eyes on the dream of having an education, cast aside all potential detours, if you fail try again till you make it. 

 (far right) Bishop Joe Imakando with some of  the students who gave their lives to the Lord.
