  1. Get to know that the servants of God will walk with Him in faith, He will give power to their message. They will enabled so to present His love and the danger of rejecting the grace of God that men will be constrained to accept the gospel, Christ will perform wonderful miracles if men will but do their God- given part. I thank you all for the work that is a head of us and your organization as a whole, i hope that as time comes it will give you an image to share with everybody may God bless you.


  2. iam still in the ship cruising along the coastline of development with those who have not known their status up to now we are few one that have been able to be tested Hiv/aids i would wish all our church leaders to open the hiv centers in East Africa
