He says about himself “I realize that wherever I am, I have one mission – make God heard, seen and known. I may have cracks and breaks, but this makes the perfume sip out even better.We live in a world full of chaos, and we know that Jesus is the answer to all the chaos of the world. But for us to present the world with the answers, we need to be engaged in the conversations of the world. I therefore consider it part of my responsibility to be positioned in the different crossroads of life where my skills, training, work, ministry and businesses create avenues for me to engage today’s world with Jesus.”
