I have written about Salif many times. He was a former Muslim. His dad was and imam(religious leader in the Mosque) and he was one at different times. He has been faithful in many areas and always ready to help but he had never been faithful to give his tithe. This is a major problem in African churches and from what I understand it is a problem anywere in the world. I have taught on it and taught on it but only a few have really been faithful. Salif has never talked to me directly about it but he supposedly has told others that he doesn’t think that there is any reason to give the tithe. I am not sure where he got this, but I know that he hasn’t really been faithful to give. The other night he came to me and said, “Pastor, Here is my tithe.” Amen. Our offering at Cissin is getting better and better. Yes, these people are poor, but there are principles in the Word of God that are for everybody, no matter how rich or how poor. In order for the work of God to really flourish here in Africa, they must learn how to give. This might not sound like much to you but it is a step in the right direction. We will be having our first missions conference in November.
