See Derrick’s story:
God began doing spiritual surgery on my heart towards the end of a 15+ year career as a health care executive at some of the nation’s largest hospitals in Florida, Alabama, Illinois and North Carolina. Most people I knew thought that I was living the American dream, but internally I was experiencing a personal nightmare…no fulfillment, failing as a husband, failing as a father and failing as a community citizen. God began to show me that true fulfillment is achieved by what you do for others and to be effective at serving others God gave us a gift (s).
The past five years God has given me witty inventions and businesses to serve other corporate executives with excellence. Those relationships led me to Kiev, Ukraine to be mentored by the pastor of the largest church in Eastern Europe (Pastor Sunday Adelaja). During my visit, a bishop from Nigeria prophesied that the major impact that I would leave on earth would occur on the continent of Africa. Therefore, I consider the opportunity to serve others in Zambia via Family Legacy a double blessing!
My wife (Michele) and two sons (Devin and Dawson) will be relocating to Dallas at the conclusion of the 2014 school year.
1 Peter 4:10: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
