I have one brother, Otis that I am very close to.I worked for Goldsmith Department Store for thirty years as a Specialist, and now I am retired, I take care of a lady who has Lupus. To God be the glory for all the things He has done.I can't began to tell you what the book means to me and how my life has been changed while trying to put the book together, how coming into the knowledge of Jesus Christ to help the cause has given me a new out look on life about my sisters and brothers there.after traveling to Mombasa Kenya East Africa, and seeing the conditions God put it into my heart to share with others through the book to help the cause. People are suffering in every way, the book is used as a tool to reach out to those who might want to go to the mission field, if not maybe help someone who is already there.
