I am an ACT man in BWM. I joined in the year 2004. I used to show the Jesus film in new unreached areas with CHRIST. I train youths with true love waits and HIV/aids awareness with schools and in churches.

I plant churches, do discipleship for my timothys. I sometimes make surveys on critical social problems facing a community and find innovative solutions to help them. For example, provision of water wells, water filters, finishing roofing some of the churches, provision of bibles and medical work. I have so far planted more than 31 churches in Morogoro and Bunda. My Timothy’s are running those churches as pastors. 80% of those churches are still strong. Through this ministry many people have come to know Jesus and I have baptized many. X

1. My ministry is to reach the unreached and make disciples of them according to Matthew 28:19-20. That is why I am heading to the unreached and neglected Pygmies of the Congo Forest.
2. Reach the reached who have not been touched. That is why I go to the schools and institutions to educate them about the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Through the True Love Waits commitment, I can teach the children about accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior who is the best protector and changes lives.
3. My goal is to see churches planted for the Pygmies.
