The actual title of the message below by Dr. D.K. Olukoya contained in the Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional of Tuesday, 30th April 2019, is ‘The Mint Promise’. It is a message deserving the widest publicity, religious differences notwithstanding. It is about social development and our responsibilities. Africa is able to record phenomenal changes if we all perform our responsibilities.  The MESSAGE: My heart bled for Sister Jane when she dragged her unemployed engineering graduate son to me for counselling to stop him from travelling abroad by any means available. Our young engineer had boasted that he was ready to drive taxis, do barbering or any menial job outside this country, because any job there is big money.

Beloved, the streets of America and Europe are not paved with gold. They were built over many centuries by men like us, who sacrificed by investing in themselves and their fellow countrymen. Their children are reaping the dividends today. Young Christians, encouraged by parents, should spearhead a revolution of patient hard work, entrepreneurship, innovation and self-enhancement. We desperately need our dignity…
