Happy New Year! Welcome to January!
A couple of weeks ago, the Lord told me that He is seeking Trailblazers AND this will be my word for 2021. I am stirring your spirits to get ready to blaze trails this year by becoming a Trailblazer. This is the year of Trailblazers!
Who is a Trailblazer? A person who is the first to do something; an innovator, a pathfinder, a shifter.
A Trailblazer is someone who is not afraid to challenge the status quo; for example, the way we have always done things is not necessarily the way we are going to continue to do it.
A Trailblazer is someone who has an idea and knows how to go after it.
A Trailblazer is someone who does not have the same opportunity as others; but they pave a path for themselves and for others to follow.
In these days and times, the Lord is urgently seeking trailblazers. Trailblazers are urgently needed in the Kingdom of God. The Lord is raising up people to do things that were never done before and to say what was never said before. We need trailblazers!
The first to do something amazing.
The first from your family to go to college.
The first from your family to get saved or to become a Pastor, Evangelist…
The first from your family to start a business.
A trailblazer is someone who is willing to take risks and go in a path that is not already there. In other words, they blaze a trail and leave a path for others.
We need trailblazers in business.
We need trailblazers in every organization.
We need trailblazers in the government.
We need trailblazers in our community.
We need trailblazers in the church.
We need trailblazers.
We need prayer trailblazers.
We need worship trailblazers.
We need children ministry trailblazers.
We need evangelism trailblazers.
We need outreach trailblazers.
Trailblazers are visionaries. Trailblazers are history makers. Trailblazers are nation builders.
We have all wrestled with voices saying, do not do it; or you cannot handle what will come after this.
Let us become trailblazers. Let us become radical. Let us become unstoppable. Leave the uncertainty behind.
My Bible verse for 2021 is from Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Are you ready to start blazing a trail?

SERMON “RETURNING TO GIVE THANKS”
I am sharing with you a sermon that I preached at Church the Sunday after Thanksgiving last year. Listen and be blessed. Check it out on my YouTube channel by clicking below.
HOLDING ON TO HOPE
My Holding on to Hope Weekly Devotion has been an inspiration to many. The testimonies keep pouring in! A new video clip is published every Monday morning on my YouTube channel or Facebook page. Here is one of the latest devotions.
If you have not watched any of the videos from my Online Bible Study (OBS) called Bible Gleaners then you are missing out! What are you waiting for? In case you missed the sessions, you can watch the replays on YouTube or Facebook. Here is the session from December:
I already had 2 sessions planned for this month but I hear God saying WAIT, so Bible Gleaners will return in February. A new video premieres every 1st and 3rd Thursday at 8:00 p.m. EST. In addition, a FREE PDF handout with notes from the study would be available to download from my website. Mark your calendars! The topic will be announced soon.
LIVE MINISTRY TRAINING
I will be doing a LIVE 1-hour teaching via zoom every quarter. My goal is to train, equip, develop and to sharpen the Kingdom skills of Pastors, Ministers, Leaders, Church Workers, Business Individuals and other interested persons.
The next training is scheduled for Tuesday 23rd February 2021 at 9:00 p.m. EST Caribbean Time. The topic is “Principles For Effective Teamwork” and the registration will be opened soon. You must register to get the zoom link as the training will not be live on social media.
