I received the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior in 1983. In my earliest days as a Christian, I had a strong desire to teach and preach the word of God. It wasn’t long before I started teaching a class of 9th grade boys in my church. A short time later I started preaching in a nearby nursing home. After a couple of years, I was invited to preach here at the 60th St. Baptist Church. In 1993, I was invited to travel to Panama to preach revival services in 2 churches. One year later I was invited to Suriname to preach. That is where I met my wife Lily. I returned to Suriname 6 months later to marry her. Over the past 26 years, God has given us opportunities to minister His word in 17 countries around the world. For many years I have had the privilege to teach an adult bible class here at 60th Street Baptist Church. I also play drums in our church praise band. Lily has been blessed to teach a children’s class for many years.
