Jacque Edwards speaks to Pastors Conference in Zambia

Fathers in Sub-saharan Africa traditionally remain distant from their children, leaving the role of parenting, training, and nurturing to the mother. Even Christian fathers are not always involved with their children. After Mike Jestes spoke to the pastors about the importance of the father in rearing their children, Jacque spoke about the importance of her relationship to her own father. To children, LOVE is spelled TIME. Her father's time and attention to her has made her feel valued and close to him. Even little things, like watching a golf tournament on TV together, mean a lot to her.
