This is the story of a Maasai tribal village chief from Kenya who was born under an acacia tree outside of his parent's hut in Africa, because there was no hospital in his village. For the first nine years of Joseph's life, his existence was consumed with work and caring for siblings. But his thirst for knowledge drove him to seek out the only education available in his village. His bold move transformed the village and gave many of the children there an opportunity to learn. Joseph went from that humble beginning to being a much respected pastor in one of the largest cities in the United States-Los Angeles. There are seventy-five angelic encounters in all; each one is a revelation about how important any one of us can be to the people who come into our lives. And you never know when the help you provide will lift someone toward a life of greatness.
