I believe in “living and letting live” and in the sustainable principle of teaching people how to fish instead providing them with fish.

I am a practising Christian who believes that I must apply my God-given talents to expanding His footprint and that I need to offer blessings to my immediate environment on a sustainable basis.

I believe in planning my own destiny on earth as far as possible … and in accepting my destiny from my Creator. I also believe in taking the responsibility for my own decisions and the effect these have on other’s lives._MG_9228

I believe that churches all over the world should be more involved with contingency planning for their member’s futures. I think churches may be counting on the reactive functions of Social Welfare and Care and, although this is a part of church responsibilities, their primary function should be to support their congregations in planning for their lives.
