Even in death, I join the whole world to celebrate him today because his efforts towards the productivity of the things of God reached all ends of the earth, his human existence was a blessing the “CHURCH OF GOD MISSION INT.” is a blessing!.

Men from God may die in flesh, but they are forever alive in spirit, because the grace lives on. I celebrate 50 years of the mission, divine stability, divine evidence and fruitfulness.
