I have to stop now because, Daddy your achievements are just too many, I just can’t
list them all.
Despite all these, His greatest legacy were the lives he touched, the people he impacted and his partners in ministry who are always there to carry on the baton. His humanitarian foundation has helped to sponsor hundreds of people through school, daily provided food and clothing to the needy. His birthday was always celebrated amongst the needy and the helpless, stretching out a hand to raise them up when they had nothing to give in return. His weekly visit to the North Carolina Hospital in Charlotte, praying regularly for the sick till he earned several awards of service, awards of kindness, awards of excellence and many awards space will not permit. His legacy lives on in us, the passion for prayer he poured on us, the desire for the word of God he instilled in us. Nothing else matters than the legacy of prayer, faith, love, hope and passion.
