  1. Just acknowledging the Men of God who shared the Gospel and did what had to be done for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Its time to pick up the mantle and preach preach preach the word no matter the consequence. For God I live For God I Die . I got to carry my own CROSS soberly with a vigilant mindset!!!

  2. The gospel had to be preached boldly no matter what challenges we face.The desciples did their part now it is left with us..
