During a Sunday service in 1999, Pastor Chris Komagum explained why as a ministry KPC now Watoto were accountable. Pr. Chris articulated the principles that held them together as a Ministry since inception in the early 1980’s. The leadership were clear on what he called the 3G’s; God’s Glory and Honour, His Gold and His Girls & Guys.
I have since been educated that by articulating the 3G’s Ps. Chris was making an “elevator pitch” and because I still remember it – It was effective. This, in my view is part of the recipe for Watoto’s great success. Watoto were preparing for a marathon and not a sprint! Ps. Arthur Nsamba’s Facebook post seems to be the voice of those of us who don’t want to get cynical about the much talked about dinner in honour of the man of God. Arthur puts many things in clear perspective of the Word of God. He even helped me reference the 3G’s to Oral Roberts. This shows that the leadership at Watoto were and still are students of those that have gone before them.
In 1998, I had my first of several serious attempt at salvation, I wept all by myself for 3 hours listening to Helen Baylors’ song SEA of FORGETFULNESS. I was trying to come to terms with God’s love and how much I was loved by God as an Individual. I had been led through the sinners’ prayer by Pastor Martin Sempa aka Musumba DJ but didn’t feel anything for him as THE MAN OF GOD. I held in reverent awe the One to whom he pointed me – JESUS CHRIST.
Bishop T.D Jakes put it this way… “Preaching the Gospel is like one beggar telling another beggar where he got the bread”
As instructed, I found a bible believing church and begun to fellowship with them. I believe the reason for this was that as a young believer I needed to get grounded in the Word and use it to find and tell my story to the Glory of GOD. When I joined Watoto, it was possible for me to locate my place in the English speaking, Cell based community Church, as we Celebrated Christ with each one touching one with the love of Jesus and reaching out to our community and ultimately nation.
The dinner was for those that are fully submitted to the “Man of God”. It wasn’t a problem until the Glory and Honor seemed to be turned away from the GOD of the MAN. The justifications have come fast and furious including Joseph Kabuleta’s NBS rant on how his actions were to cancel out Speaker Kadaga’s witchcraft. He said it is only the beginning so we hope to hear a compelling “elevator pitch” as to why we must submit all our politics to the man of God.
I also rest and arrest my case!
