A little over two years ago, we started a school. We started with an office block and four children. Today we have 39 students with a full house capacity of 50 students. It has been a remarkable journey and from the outside looking in, anyone can say that we have done well. These kinds of success stories encourage many.
However, there is the other side of success stories that hardly ever gets told. It is the challenges you face of being short on cash, staff and stationery. It is the sleepless nights wondering what the people are going to eat tomorrow. In a business, it is about making decisions about other people's future and being the driver, the toilet cleaner and the repairman when you cannot afford one. It is hoping against hope that things will change. It is about faith that God in his mercy will bridge the cash flow and come through for you again and again. Business is about faith. Just a little because in the circumstances you cannot afford much. Business is about many things. but without faith, there can be no business.
