- [21 July 2016, Uber ride home] I had to rush home and decided to get on a Uber. The driver asked why I happened to be heading home in the afternoon. I explained that my wife wasn’t well so I had to get home. She mentioned that she wasn’t well too and was having a prolonged cough and cold.

I asked her if she was a Christian and if she would mind me praying for her. She wasn’t a believer but allowed me to pray for her! I thank God for simple opportunities like that and I pray that God will bring others into her life and lead her and her family to Christ!

- [30 June 2017, Praying in the office] Testimony! Happen to be alone in the office with one of my closer colleagues and we ended up praying for our boss and also everyone in the company.

Felt my heart lighter and I no longer feel irritated with my boss. And the power when two or more coming tgt to pray, and a breakthrough because my colleague prayed as well!
