I grew up in a Christian family and so as a child I attended church. The Lord blessed me with wonderful parents, but even so, I did not seek after God and instead I wanted my friends to like me.
I went to Sunday School each Sunday but I didn’t like it, in fact I was really bored. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that we received tea and biscuits.
When I was 10 (in 2001), a Good News Club opened in my area (at that time I had never heard of Good News Club). I attended out of curiosity (I wasn’t forced by my parents to attend), and I really liked it. It was interesting as there were not just church children there, but I was able to attend with my friends from the neighbourhood. I even started to invite my friends and we would go together. I remember those days fondly and I really looked forward to each meeting. There were about 20 of us and it was really nice.
God worked in my life and after I finished high school, I attended Bible College and began to serve the Lord. I completed my studies in 2014 and began to minister as a pastor. Currently, by the grace of God, I am serving in 3 local churches. Even though I am now a pastor, I never forgot the importance of working with children.
