    What a profile. You are truly a mentor to many. Your legacy of nurturing Champions will be spoken about beyond your time. May you continue to run with this incredible vision. We salute you Doc.

      Thanks Rabison. I am inspired by your own growth. May your voice be amplified as you speak to the greatness in people. Leadership according to Stephen Covey is the ability to communicate the greatness in others to them till they can see it for themselves. I salute the gift and grace of God upon you.

      Thanks Max. May you reach out to the potential in you and ensure its realisation. Potential is not beneficial unless its released to produce results. Go for it.

    I have just been reading an article by Donald W. Mitchell; “Set and Achieve High Goal: …”, it was career-planning notes that you send him.

    It is really inspirational, in fact your life is inspirational to me. May the LORD continue to use you as a living Testment.

      Thanks Gabriel. The Lord has been gracious and has empowered us to serve His people. It is a joy to serve the King by serving His people. Trust you are well. We still have some unfinished business by the way. Be blessed and may your influence be felt. Doc

    Hi Doc Makoni,

    I knew that today God had something good for me. i have just resigned from a job after sixteen years because i believe God is taking me to a higher level. i thank you in particular because your messages have just been confirming the dream that God has entrusted in me. by faith i have taken this up and given up my 16years. this space again i have found support based on Christian values. Stay blessed Doc.

    2011 Wisdom is key to all decisions, I share the same view. Daniel in a vision saw soul winners shining like stars, we have an honourable task ahead Zimbabwe needs more harvesters who are committed. Well many ministers will visit Zimbabwe like never before and this country will attract more tourists the time to build and restore the spiritual side is now. I am going to follow suite , am already communicating with the Rushmore University to take the same DBA to enhance my skills God bless you Dr.

    I tried to reach you through your listed email but it is reporting it is is not an active email.

    God led me to your book on the Tabernacle of David. It is prophesying to me! I thank God for your understanding of this topic and for sharing the important revelation God has given to you on the subject. As I read your words I feel like I have received a treasure.

    I just wanted to reach out and thank you Prophet for your yes to God. God has greater things for you this year. He is going to stretch out your tent peg!

    Many thanks and blessings!
