PARACHUTE: Happy New Year

MLN - Well, one of my brothers in Uganda just forwarded me the message which follows. Francis is a bit tricky. You think you know a guy. Then he totally takes you out of your comfort zone. And then some. THANK YOU.

Air Commodore James Aseidu Aniagye was a Jet Pilot. In a combat mission his fighter plane was destroyed by a missile. He however ejected himself & parachuted safely. He won acclaims & appreciation from many.

After five (5) years, one day he was sitting with his wife in a restaurant. A man from another table came and said. You are Captain Asiedu! You flew Jet fighters, you were shot down.

How in the world did you know that? asked Asiedu.
I packed your parachute "the man smile and replied" Asiedu gasped in suprise and gratitude and thought if parachute hadnt worked, i wouldnt be here today.

Asiedu couldnt sleep that night, thinking about that man, he wondered how many times he might have seen him and not even said, Goodmorning, how are you? or anything because he was a fighter pilot and that person was just a safety worker.

So comrades, who is packing your parachute? Everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day.

We need many kinds of parachutes when our plane is shot down-  we need the physical parachute, the mental parachute, the emotional parachute, the spiritual parachute and the financial parachute. We call on all these supports before reaching safety.

Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important, or just do something nice for no reason.

As you go through this last hours of the year, recognize the people who packed your parachute.

I just want to THANK EVERYONE who packed my parachute this 2018, one way or the other - through your words, deeds, prayers.

CHEERS for 2019, Hope to get more of your prayers, love, care and support in 2019.

Thank you all and God bless you. Wish you all a very bless and blissful celebration.... God  bless you richly in  Jesus Name.

Francis - Do you know why Ugandans do not read, write or follow simple instructions? Our curriculum. Uganda's education curriculum is exam-driven and does not support creativity, innovativeness as well as reading and writing. On exporting Ugandans as slaves, there's already slavery in Uganda. A visit to any home of a highly placed Ugandan, you will be shocked at the way their house helps are being treated. There cases of Government officers keeping Government drivers beyond 10.00 p.m.waiting for them while drinking in bars. If that is not slavery, then what is it?

  2. I tried anyway. Heaven knows why. Maybe just to see if I could or maybe because I was tired of working for the man hating my job and staying in debt. The first few months I just kind of half assed it. Like I said, I was mainly doing it for me. As I started to earn an income, make connections, helping people and getting results of my own...I really realized the potential.
