The Shepherd with an Impossible Dream

Tembo was a shepherd boy who lived in a makeshift hut in the mountains of Lesotho.

Often he watched airplanes streak overhead en route for distant cities. One day he cried out, “If only I could fly one of those.”

Some years later, a missionary met Tembo and he got to know him. Impressed with the boy’s dream he gave him a job cleaning hangers.

The years passed, and Tembo’s hard work was noticed. He was promoted to better positions. Kind-hearted pilots gave him lessons in his off-duty hours.

One memorable day, the shepherd boy from Lesotho received his pilot’s licence. God had known all along where that young boy was, and He had a plan for his life.

My dream: 

I had an impossible dream—to attend a writers’ conference in the United States of America. I called it out to God, and I’ve been to two, not one. You can read about them here:

Sandy Cove Writers’ Conference, and Florida Writers’ Conference.

How about you?

Do you have an impossible dream? Do you have the courage to give it to God? Speak to Him about it, and He may surprise you. He just might bring it to pass!
