    Amen Mike. It must be a calling or else we cannot prosper in what we are called to do. I am still a work in progress but with God in our side, we will get there where He place us to be. God bless you and so excited to be mentored by you and your team.

    Thank you and nope, I am not material BAM could use now. I am still on the steep learning curve to deprogram as a sailor and a missionary and to reprogram as a productive SME business owner in difficult areas of southern and central Africa. I am, however, keen to keep upon a straight and narrow with BAM guidence!

    I would Like to learn , I believe I have the calling , but I have no Idea, what i am getting into . I have served as a missionary for many years.

    What an encouraging but challenging video! Looking forward to growing and learn more through the lessons

  7. Manasse Kagumba on August 20, 2021 at 9:12 am

    What an inspiring and amazing video,. as a work in progress and someone who is willing to learn and know more, I want to be transformed to transform others in the rural villages of Kenya. My expectations are higher through these encouraging words of wisdom.

    Hi Mike.
    Thank you for allowing us to take these free courses that provide us a clear understand of what path we should take to be involved in BAM.

  9. mylaroberts4 on August 31, 2021 at 2:09 am

    My husband and I are excited to learn more. Thank you!

  10. Sonya Brunswick on September 28, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    This is an exciting endeavor. I have been learning about and researching BAM for the last year. I have been involved in marketplace ministry for years (similar concept) and looking to cultivate my business endeavors more strategically around these principles. Thank you!

    Great learning and a good mirror to look at myself. Character traits… I am satisfied with God’s blessings I received but business skills and particularly sales??? However, I have been selling a product “various social cause” so far and have done it well. Now, as a business person, I will add financial cost to my sales for a cause – meaning no longer do it as a charity but social enterprise or business. I am ready and also convinced that its God’s leading but I need the step by step guidance which I am getting it here. Thank you.

    Great presentation. Thank you!

  13. jp.gradone on January 19, 2022 at 1:45 pm

    I appreciate that you did not paint a rosy picture, but gave a good reality check.

  14. kingsleyayinde on January 25, 2022 at 2:54 pm

    Thank you Mike, I am ready to learn. Character traits you mentioned are in place, but integrating business into Kingdom work as tools to fulfill His Divine (Cultural) Mandate is my focus. I appreciate your free course and the BAM group. Blessings

  15. kingsleyayinde on January 26, 2022 at 1:51 pm

    Mike to be honest, I believe I am spiritually qualified for this, but I am half way into the business knowledge and understanding, and that is why I am taking this courses in the first place. Thank you

  16. kingsleyayinde on January 31, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    Hello Mike,
    I have done only one course and I have my result sent to me, but I can’t access my next course online.
    Why can’t I access the remaining courses?

    When can I start the premium course?
    Thank you

  17. Daniel Madapur on April 4, 2022 at 6:31 am

    Positive standpoint from which to launch into BAM. Yes!

  19. dhannruchi on April 8, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Thank you great informational video!!!

  20. Sonya Brunswick on April 28, 2022 at 3:33 pm

    Not sure why this and a couple of the other courses I went through dont show up as completed. I’ve gone through this one a couple of others twice and in some cases three times to see if there was a glitch as to why they are not showing up complete. Please advise.

    I am qualifed and excited as I am being led by Holy Spirit.

  22. sportsabilitybd on January 30, 2023 at 8:52 am

    Thanks for the video. Good to be reminded and encouraged. Our family has been overseas for the last 13 years in 3 different countries. One thing we learned about remaining overseas is to be teachable and remain a lifelong learner of each culture.
    I had a business(private contractor in the rehab field) in the USA for 12 years. With all of our experiences in many different areas both in USA and in SE/S Asia, we can lean on those skills/experiences and add to the next skill that we are about to learn and venture out into SME business model.
