I came to faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 14 through the witness of my sister and through the preaching of an evangelist. At the age of 16, at a youth convention, I was called by God to be a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A favorite verse: “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5)
