I am a disciple of Christ; a husband to my lovely wife, Angella; and a father to our two children ages 3 and 2. I am an ordained minister with the Associated Presbyterian Churches of Scotland and Canada. I am also involved with Joy to the World Ministries, a ministry committed to the spreading of the gospel among the nations. In a nutshell, I am a trophy of the grace of God. “I am what I am by the grace of God” (1 Corinthians 15:10).
I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because He judged me faithful, appointing me to His service, though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display His perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen (1 Timothy 1:12-17).
