I was sitting in the office and meditating, asking the Lord to put food on the table of Under His Wings Orphanage. A young man walked in and asked us if he could celebrate his birthday anniversary with the orphans. Why not? I answered. "What is your name", inquired my wife. He simply answered, "Tsewo Edema" with a broad smile in his face. I never knew that he came in company of many believers. We had a nice time. As he kept coming, I knew by-good luck that Tsewo is one of the finest men I have ever met. His new book, Why Some Men Must Be Poor, is an important survey into men's destiny. When God created man in His image, He empowered him to be rich and wealthy not to be poor. "Let us make man in our image and after our likeness." The creation of man was preceded by divine consultation by the tri-unity God who gave man dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of air, the animal kingdom and all the earth. This is the record of Moses in the book of beginning - Genesis. The author wondered why man made in God's image could live in the depth of poverty. In my missionary odysseys over the world, I always face a group of young people asking this question; why is Africa poor? My answer has been, I do not think so. Africa is full of vast lands of wealth. It will amaze you to think the problem is lack of transparency, creation of job opportunities as well as utter selfishness. The elder John in 3 John, well informed a wealthy man in the Bible to open his door to true ambassadors of the true gospel. ".../ wish above all things that you may prosper..."It is my hope that this book, another in the stream of scholarly works may change the mentality of many people in the community as well as the adage "make them poor and keep them humble." Tsewo as a lawyer and pastor has written this book with ocean clarity. I recommend "Why Some Men Must Be Poor" to all who seek radical change in their destiny.
