FROM THE CEO’S DESK
to our God for a successful 2016. This year has been full of challenges
and changes at the Institute. Mattie Görgens was replaced at the admin

Manager is now headed by Tshego Motaung. ICLD finances have grown but it
is still overstretched. I take this opportunity to thank all those who

book, Nation Building – A Biblical Perspective, was launched on my
birthday at the Waterkloof Golf Course Pretoria. I take the opportunity
to thank all those who made the event a huge success. You may order the
book from ICLD office at email@example.com.
I want to remind all that the cross of Jesus Christ has made the
difference so that the blessings of Abraham have become available to
all. However, Christians have to learn to become nation builders and
build cities, systems and sectors of society on the Abrahamic covenant
as it has been brought to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus
On behalf of ICLD team, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new 2017.
The Lord is coming!
