He began a relationship with Jesus during his childhood through the testimony of his uncle and in the midst of family conflicts. He has served the Lord from his youth in various ministries.

His desire and prayer is that each person can have a fervent, personal relationship with Jesus, and that the kingdom of God is established in every believer, in their family, their neighborhood and their city.
