    "As I told you because of discrimination, we have been denied
    development funds for purchasing a plot and putting up a better
    church building. The members pay an equivalent of US dollars
    100 per month for the use of this building."

    Alois Osos, District Superintendent

    "I recommend him highly on the basis of his academic and
    spiritual qualifications and the zeal that he has exemplified over
    the years in promoting awareness over LGBT issues among
    students, staff and faculty members. I recommend him highly for
    attending to, discussing and supporting LGBT issues on a daily
    basis. I recommend him highly in the area of community
    involvement, church activity and productivity, since he planted
    two healthy churches during the years he has worked in the
    schools and in the church. He has also overseen the planting and
    growth of many others."  Gerald Baraza, President
