One of the first things that comes to the mind of most Africans living in Africa is to ask the diaspora to help them, forgetting that no one is helping the diaspora for free. In contrast, the first thing that enters the mind of most diasporas is not how to help Africa, but whether Africa knows why they have left the continent and what they are doing/facing abroad!

On 5-6 April, 2018, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1), has prophetically shaken Los Angeles during a conference / revival organized in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at the renowned Dolby Theatre, in Los Angeles, California. During the conference, Major 1 announced that God sent him to lay a new foundation in Los Angeles. He said that God showed him a vision and God said “I am about to change the City of Los Angeles”. He said that the Lord told him that, in the next three years, a revival is going to shake Los Angeles. Therefore, where many have often gathered from all over the world to be entertained by famous Hollywood celebrities, thousands have gathered in the same venue instead to partake into the prophetic movement, worship, honor, and experience life-changing encounters with the God of Major 1, the God of Miracles and Wonders.
