What excites you about what God is doing around the world?
Seeing God saving people everywhere and thereafter the new believers becoming maturing members of the Kingdom of God all over. Secondly, opportunity to interact with top leaders who have platforms that influence thousands of people moving them toward the fulfillment of the purposes of God.
What miracles have you seen God perform?
I have been highly favored to see my dad, who was a third generation alcoholic, get totally delivered in his late sixties and we served the Lord together for over 20 years. The networks and opportunities to relate with high impact Kingdom-minded leaders has been phenomenal. I have also been very privileged to see the miracle of raising leaders from communities who had never heard the name of Jesus and these leaders becoming agents of church multiplication and trainers. I have seen God’s provisions for me while I was a student in the States He provided for all my needs. I finished all my studies debt free.
