JIC, Hyman add lustre to CIA's fete

Botswana's gospel ensemble Jam in Christ (JIC) and visiting American minister Bishop Aristarchus Donte Hyman have added lustre to Campus International Assembly's first anniversary celebrations.

The church's choir, with a number of singers from JIC, has made an important part of the church's revelries this week.CIA started on February 12 last year and is in a celebratory mood this week.Hyman, based in South Carolina, United States has also not let the attendees down in the three nights he has ministered.He has been guest speaker at the week-long merriments and took time to encourage the church to soldier on. "Sometimes the tests God puts you through don't make sense. Whenever God takes you through a test it's not because he is taking you through it to destroy you.

It's to let you know you are on the mind of God," he said, drawing loud applause from attendees.He added that each time one goes through a tough situation; they must understand God has a way for them to escape. "He always has a way for you to move out of it." Hyman also challenged congregants to rise up and become what God ordained them to be. "What God has placed inside of you can never be duplicated because you are the original.You are the one God is going to use. There is originality inside of you." He stressed need for the church in Botswana to work together as a unit saying the reason ministries are falling is because pastors are not standing together.
