15 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT REVEREND YOMI KASALI

15 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT REVEREND YOMI KASALI

HIS BIRTHDAY

28TH FEBRUARY

HIS FAVOURITE TEAM

CHELSEA

HIS HERO

HIS FATHER

HIS WEAKNESS

“I LOVE THE TRUTH TO A FAULT…I CONSIDER THAT A WEAKNESS’’

HIS TAKE ON WESTERNISATION

I AM CIVILISED BUT NOT WESTERNISED…THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!

HIS DRESSING TIPS

I ASK MYSELF TWO QUESTIONS WHEN DRESSING UP; IS IT BEAUTIFUL? DOES IT GLORIFY GOD? IT IS A WRONG DRESS SENSE WHEN YOU THINK THAT IF YOU ARE NOT NUDE YOU HAVE NOT DRESSED UP…

HIS MARKETING ANALOGY

THEY SAY ”SEX SELLS”, I SAY ”SEX KILLS!”

HIS FAVOURITE QUOTE

‘’WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH, NOT THE SUGAR OF THE EARTH’’ (TELL PEOPLE THE TRUTH THAT THEY NEED TO HEAR EVEN IF IT HURTS, NOT THE LIES THAT WOULD MAKE THEM FEEL GOOD AND LEAVE THEM WORSE OFF)

HIS PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY ON SUCCESS

‘’YOU DON’T HAVE TO MEASURE SUCCESS WITH NUMBERS, MEASURE SUCCESS WITH RESULTS’’ (E.G. A SUCCESSFUL CHURCH IS NOT NECESSARILY MEASURED BY THE NUMBERS OF A CONGREGATION, BUT BY THE NUMBERS OF CHANGED LIVES)

HIS ASPIRATIONS

TO HAVE TOWN HALL MEETINGS (AS MANY AS POSSIBLE) WHERE PARENTS CAN BE ADDRESSED ON RESTORING LOST FAMILY VALUES AMONGST OTHERS. SOME PARENTS ARE PUSHING THEIR CHILDREN TO GO AND GET MARRIED OR TO GO AND MAKE MONEY WITHOUT CARING HOW

HIS PERCEPTION OF MEN OF GOD

MANY PASTORS ARE GIVEN A ”LARGER THAN LIFE” IMAGE, AND THEREFORE PEOPLE GET THE IMPRESSION THAT THEY CAN NEVER BE WRONG. PASTORS ARE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS, AND SHOULD BE HUMBLE OR SINCERE ENOUGH TO ADMIT AND APOLOGISE IF THEY DISCOVER THEY HAVE BEEN WRONG ON AN ISSUE. ACKNOWLEDGING WHEN WE ARE WRONG IS A STRENGTH NOT A WEAKNESS

HIS TAKE ON POLITICS

‘’WHAT THE NATION NEEDS ARE MORAL LEADERS SUCH AS REV. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR, NELSON MANDELA AND MAHATMA GANDHI’’, HE SAYS POINTING TO A PICTURE OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JNR. HANGING ON HIS WALL WITH THE BOLD CAPTION ‘’I HAVE A DREAM’’. ”WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO SHOW OUR CHILDREN PICTURES OF LEADERS WHO HAVE MORAL VALUES”.

HIS DESCRIPTION OF HIMSELF

‘’I COULD BE CONSIDERED AS AN EXTROVERT ON THE PULPIT BUT I’M A VERY SIMPLY MAN’’

HIS TAKE ON BEING THE IDEAL HUSBAND

SINGLE LADIES SEE ME AND SAY THEY WISH TO MARRY A MAN LIKE ME, I’M TALL, GOOD LOOKING, ETC. I SAY TO THEM ”IF YOU HAD SEEN ME YEARS AGO I WAS A DISASTER…A RISK! IF I HAD PROPOSED, YOU WOULD HAVE SAID TU-FIA-KWA!!!”

HIS WIFE

HE IS MARRIED TO PASTOR FUNKE KASALI. WHILST I ONLY SAW MYSELF AS AN EVANGELIST, SHE SAW A TEACHER IN ME. SHE SAID I WAS VERY ‘’WORDED’’. TODAY LADIES WILL ASK YOU, NA WORD I GO CHOP? AND I SAY YES. LOL
