Christian nation builders from more than 14 African countries, North America and Israel participated in a virtual Africa Leadership Summit (ALS) meeting from October 23 to 24,

The biannual ALS gathering in Israel of African and diaspora leaders with a heart for Israel was postponed last year because of Covid-19 travel obstacles and went online this year for the same reason.

The theme for this year’s conference was “The quest for godly leaders and righteous nations” and one of the focus areas was to assess progress with preparation for the summit scheduled for Israel in July 2022 but which may be pushed to 2023 if Covid-related challenges persist.

The ALS strives to facilitate godly nation building through linking cities, sectors and systems in Africa with Israel so that Africa can benefit from the Abrahamic Covenant, mantle and blessings as implemented on the Cross by Jesus, said Senzo Gumbi ALS Southern Africa regional team leader.

He said that fruits of the four biannual conferences in Israel since 2013 include building relationships among leaders, establishing the Africa-Israel Chamber of Commerce which focuses on building the business highway between Africa and Israel, and establishing the Africa Agency which focuses on community development.

Highlights of the recent virtual conference included prayer for the “Great Awakening”, ALS 2022 mobilisation reports from the regions, worship, and ministry of the Word.

Main conference speakers were Reuven Berger, Benjamin Berger, Pastor Segun Olanipekun, Pastor John Adejorooluwa, Apostle Linda Gobodo, Margaret Aduol, Pastor David Kabarere and Bassey Usang Bassey.

  1. Africa must awaken to its farming methods, which are archaic and leading eventually to mass starvation ,exacerbated by climate change and population increase. Mostly ruled at present by bribery and corruption. “Old” patch farming methods will continue to denude and destroy fertility. Israel would be able to help immensely with technology and advice. While commitment to JESUS is paramount for salvation, it must be remembered that our Father GOD gave our earth over to the care of mankind. HE will help those who care and nourish the land granted. Serious planning needs to happen to map out the way forward to avert disaster.
