Moses fasted and prayed on the mountain for his people and they had a breakthrough. Thanks for you 12 days of fasting of prayers that we had a major breakthrough yesterday in the AGM of ACiC/AI. After months of hard work from our Network Leadership Team, we unanimously passed a motion to accept a new Vision, Mission, Purpose and Four Years Strategic Plan. Also I gave them good news that I am going to sign a contract today with Dr. Terry Walling to be my personal coach and coach for our NLT team, clergy and people for four years. Dr. Walling has been the personal coach of our Chairman bishop, Rt. Rev. Chuck Murphy, for the past 1 1/2 year. He is a Fuller D. Min. professor and the chairman of a professional coaching consultant company, Leadership Breakthrough.
Our Mission and Vision

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
- A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
- A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters) to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
- An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
