A few years after losing his parents he was tremendously blessed, when a very influential person stepped into his life and became a pillar of support. His training was fully sponsored and this gift of education inspired him and thus making a covenant that; he would do everything in his power to help the abandoned children, orphans and all the less fortunate children and extend Christ's Love for all throughout the country.
