I get a sense of the African countries that has always relied on outside finances to help relieve poverty, were the outside finance are no longer readily available and how the people are going back to being self-sufficient. There is a pride standing up in nations that has previously relied heavily on been rescued and now people are going back to self-reliance. There iseducated people returning back to their countries and using their knowledge for their own countries. There is a focus on crops that is being produced that is going to result in a massive source of exports, where previously these countries were relying on welfare they are now providing welfare for others. God is placing a responsibility on the African nations as being thesupplier of major resources for the rest of the world and pressure is being placed to step up into their supplier role. I see plant seed plant seed making investments into countries to start developing crops and doing the research to advance crop production.

I don’t sense that we are going to hear much about agriculture. It will play a low-key role and there are certain reasons, strategically, for that. The Lord is putting a low-key plan in place and he is using a number of individuals jointly to start doing that. He is also using our farming skills and expertise in other nations in Africa. The national agricultural strategists will find this alarming. They are not sure how we are going to provide for food security in the nation. The Lord has a greater plan for South Africa in the long run in terms of the development in the other nations, so we mustn’t be alarmed by it. We must allow what the Lord is doing so that He can ensure a basket and a security for a greater area. The strategy is much greater than little South Africa – a much greater regional area like SADC is to be impacted. We will not be able to impact SA as much as we will do across the borders. This will finally flow back into much greater food security for the entire region.
The delivery model for missions is changing. It is not that certain things are being taken away, but rather, the Lord is adding to an initial model. The model is going to be redefined and emerge as a business and investment model, whereby missions will be combined with business and investment. This mechanism will also give entrance to the gospel in such nations as those of the Middle East and other regions that are antagonistic to the gospel. The purpose is the economic upliftment of the people and their training. Where we previously had mission stations that were purely focused on going into the bush and trying to preach the gospel, they are now, through business and investment, bringing employment, entrepreneurship, business and investment opportunities to the local people. Through this the gospel, whether it is in hidden form or being allowed to be preached openly, will be funded in those nations. This will happen because of mind-set changes in the foreign sending nations. The traditional countries that have been sending missionaries for many decades are going to re-evaluate, mainly due to their own problems at home. Their own churches are struggling for survival in the present model. A whole generation is going to emerge that will be affected on a greater level through the combination of the “business and church” model.
I sense such a spirit of peace over the SADC nations and Kenya, even though they have a lot of internal turmoil. The Lord is saying that this is because of the mandate of those nations to be a safe haven. There is specific productive purpose for agriculture- feeding other nations and helping other nations to stabilise. Out of this peace will come a lot of life, which is almost indescribable. This life will be a major thrust that will affect many, many parts of the world. There is a lot of connection between South America and this region of Africa. The Lord is connecting specific people under the radar that will influence both sides making them extremely effective and productive areas, due to the spirit of His peace hovering over these areas.
