The Poor Will Be Glad
I want to invite you to come see me at the Kibo Group display at the Tulsa Soul-Winning Workshop Thursday, 2 pm. I'll be signing books and hosting another author who will be signing as well, Phil Smith. Phil Smith is author of the phenomenal book, The Poor Will Be Glad. The book is a call for Christians to stop living so luxuriously and give our wealth to the poor. Since 2002 Phil has been focusing on doing good works that God has prepared in advance for him to do, according to Ephesians 2:8-10. He has been president of two large companies but now spends his time as a philanthropist and proponent for micro-loans. He also wrote a book called A Billion Bootstraps. He believes some of the charity that's done abroad does more harm than good and we ought to focus on job creation, business development, and micro-loans, among other things. I would like to introduce you to him.
Come out and see us at 2 pm, Thursday, March 24, 2010. That's 16 years to the day when we landed in Entebbe, Uganda.
Others I want you to meet at the Kibo display are Terri Taylor, my sister who lived and worked in Uganda and is an enthusiastic supporter of women in Uganda. She will be offering Ugandan beads for sale and will also have my book, High Places, for purchase. All proceeds go to Kibo Group.
I want you also to meet a guest from Uganda who will be at the workshop: Roy Mwesigwa. Roy was our first language helper and cultural informant and friend in Uganda. We have known him for 16 years and we love and respect Roy very much and so glad he's coming to see us. We'd love for you to meet him.
