Nehemiah



A true leader
a selfless leader
a committed leader
a true patriot

Even though he was in the king's
palace
he still enquired about Jerusalem
and when he learned that Jerusalem
was desolate

He abandoned the comfort of the palace
travelled to Israel
to repair
and rebuild
the Gates of Jerusalem
and repair the broken wall.

Enemies tried to frustrate him
but he was resilient
fearless
and provided quality leadership

Nehemiah a
selfless leader.
