    About me

    Greetings and Salutations.I've been a Christian for nearly 3 years. I grew up in the church but didn't see how much I needed Jesus' love and salvation until I was in my 30's. I have spent my adult life working in Security and have been a Prison Officer for the last 7 years. I am married to my amazing wife Vee. We have a beautiful newborn son Tamanda. I continue to grow in my passion for sharing the incredible news of God's love and what He did for us through Jesus (John 3:16)

    About my Apprenticeship

    I knew I wanted to be involved in Christian ministry but didn't know where to start. My wife and I prayed about opportunities in Ministry to become available. This lead me to a Christian mission trip to Myanmar (formerly Burma) with three Australian pastors to conduct a bible convention in the mountains of Chin state with the local Christians. It was amazing to see God working in the lives of another culture and a great start to see the importance of sharing the Gospel. When I returned to Australia, while dealing with family events, the opportunity to be an MTS Apprentice came up and here I am.In the Bible it talks about being ready and equipped to serve God, "But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:14-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬This apprenticeship will be the building block to study and grow as a Christian, so I can go and minister in whatever capacity God has planned for me. And I am grateful and willing to serve our Heavenly Father wherever and however he sees fit. "Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."Matthew 6:10
