“Interestingly, when this urge to build for her was impressed on me, I was also in a tight corner financially but I was determined and today, all glory to God, the building has become a reality.

“One thing unique I discovered is that the moment I discussed my intention with the widow, she immediately developed a reason to stay alive. Her skin began to glow again and that really made me happy.” He recounted.
