Mine is a life worth living…
…but then so is yours. Everybody has a life worth living – its just a question of ‘did I live up to the opportunity?’
Born in a poor family in rural Africa, with candles for light and a fire for warmth its been a long and interesting journey to get to being a Reverend Doctor ministering in a Church in London UK. With ups and downs and successes and mistakes. Its a journey that has defined me and shaped me. But all the way through I have seen the Hand of God working in my life. My humble but beautiful beginnings left me with a great appreciation for what is importance in life. Vision, commitment and hard work, underpinned by a strong faith in God are at the core. This led me through a successful career in Adult education, my own successful private consultancy firm based on productivity enhancement and then into Christian Ministry.
Yes mine has been a life worth living and the diversity and significance of my experiences has equipped me to minister with compassion and write with passion. A life lived well will have a foundation in God and a rudder of the Holy Spirit. I have a past filled with good and bad decisions, but every decision has been an important step and a learning opportunity.
