“The only thing that can make the church grow is the Word of God. It’s not by tactics, or by any other, but by preaching the Word. I think that can make their spiritual lives grow, and by that, everything will respond to that growth.”

Q1

How did you come to know the Lord? How were you saved?

Yeah, I was at school, I was born in a Christian family. My father was a minister, but then, of course, he was teaching me the Word of God; he was trying his best for me to receive Christ as my Lord, but somehow I got lost when I went to school.

But when my friends, when graduating I was in Form 3, but I made that decision because I was making trouble at the graduation. And then, and fortunately, I was not expelled, but what—uh, what the crime that I did, I think it was inviting me [to] expulsion, but I wasn’t expelled. Then I became thinking, “Why did the Lord spare me of that punishment?” As I was thinking and turning attention to what my father has been—had been teaching me when I made a decision to follow the Lord as my Savior. Yes.

Q2

Why did you decide to come to CAPA?

Yeah, I am a minister. I have gone through some waves of training. The initial years I think I cherish them much because they were concentrating on the Word of God. But then I went to other schools, I was dissatisfied, because they didn’t really fix me into the Word of God. So when I heard of CAPA, I thought this is my chance, because I heard that they dwell much on Scripture.

Q3

What do you look forward to learning at school?

Yeah, I want to—I want to learn the Scriptures in their original languages. That is one reasons why I came to CAPA. Yes. Yeah. And I know it’s a tough task. But I have to make it, because I find that very essential for the preaching of the Word. That’s important, yes.

Q4

How do you want your church to help your church grow?

The only thing that can make the church grow is the Word of God. It’s not by tactics, or by any other, but by preaching the Word. I think that can make their spiritual lives grow, and by that, everything will respond to that growth.

Q5

What are some ways you have seen God’s providence in your life?

Mm, I think there are many. Yeah. For example, He has helped me that the children get the education that they needed. I have gone through many problematic problems, but I have always seen that God has seen me through. And church, you know, it’s just like that. You have to go through many challenges. Yes. We have gone through times of need, when the congregation could not support me, but God still kept me through all those problematic problems, through the wrong times.

Q6

Do you have any prayer requests?

Yeah. Of course the first one is that God should use me still in being faithful in proclaiming God’s Word as He intended it to reach His people. And of course, here, at CAPA, I think I need your prayers that I may finish and implement what I get from here.
