God’s design for Mariage

Nature and faith agree that normal healthy relationships are between a male and a female. This is so obvious from a biological standpoint it is hardly worth mentioning!

The loving and Christian thing for Christians to do is to minister to those who have a sexual identity crisis in such a caring and truthful way that they find healing and forgiveness. Tens of thousands in the USA have found this path to freedom. More opportunities will open up for this ministry as the culture moves in a hurtful direction.

Tanzania Mission, August 2015

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father

and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

In 2013, he was unexpectedly called to be the new Bishop of Kondoa, a rural, poor diocese in northern Tanzania that is predominantly Muslim.
