I also have been involved with missionary works out of the United States. I have two degrees in the Bible from Lubbock Christian University. I have a BA in Bible and also a Master's degree in Bible and Ministry. I love the Lord's church and will always fervently from the heart to be the best preacher I can be wherever I have the privilege to serve. I am very fervent to practice evangelism and teach others to do so as well.
