Remember my story about selling sweets to my school friends? People bought from me because they knew me and, of course, I was selling something I knew that they wanted!

Feeding The Ten Billion

Growing enough food for future generations will be a challenge. Here’s how to meet it

ONE of the extraordinary things about the modern world is that so much of it takes food for granted. For most of recorded history, the struggle to eat has been the main focus of human activity, and all but a handful of people were either farmers or farm workers. Starvation was an ever-present threat. Even the best years rarely yielded much of a surplus to carry over as an insurance against leaner times.

DAY OF BLISS IN IKORODU

Image
John 5 ("Today's Version")

After the Worship and Communion Service at O2 Arena in the UK with Pastor Chris, there are several other meetings that the Holy Spirit would be present. Now, there is a Sport Arena in Ikorodu City along Ikorodu-Sagamu Road by First Gate which is called LASPOTECH. In Ikorodu with its numerous towns and villages, lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, and financially paralysed folks, waiting for the moving of the water. For a Minister of God is sent to LASPOTECH on June 25th at 2pm to stir up the water; then whoever steps in first, after the stirring of the water, will be made well of whatever disease he has.

You must be conscious of the need to acquire some deeper academic understanding of this subject if you want to run a successful business or be a top executive.

You know by now that I don't believe in experience which is not supported by continuous study and scholarship.
