Chatting to Lance Edwards

Lance Edwards

It was great catching up with Lance at Ebenezer. This is what he said:

M.M: What are your thoughts on the progress at Ebenezer this year?
L.E: I’ve seen significant progress in terms of the water system which has directly affected the health of the crops. Our electricity supply these last 3 months has helped us to perform at the level we should. In the past, Ebenezer was described as a construction site (untidy) but we are building above ground and doing landscaping and tidying up. It’s looking good. This is the physical progress. We continue to see significant spiritual progress and there is a definite correlation between the physical and the spiritual progress.

M.M: How do you feel about our plans for an intake of 75 new apprentices in 2011?
L.E: Both excited and scared. I think that we are praying that we get the right 75 apprentices who are dedicated and good candidates for us to do well. We want to choose people who are worthy. It will stretch us but we are ready for the challenge. It will also change the dynamics of Ebenezer and challenge us in having our systems and curriculum’s in place. I think it’s good.

M.M: What do you feel God is saying to you about Ebenezer?
L.E: Ephesians 4:12 – 13 "To prepare God's people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge os the son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fulness of Christ." Our purpose is to help people grow to maturity.

M.M: What quote stands out for you right now?
L.E: “Success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” Thomas Edison
M.M: Thanks Lance. You're doing a great job!
