A Good Friend I Met.

My story talks about my friend who has made me to be better than when I met him. His name is pastor Opanga of afcea church in kakamega town. I had just come from central province where I had worked with children Ministry for a long time. I shared with him my testimony and he got so interested with me so he invited me in their church, shared the importance of children and that was the starting point of my break through. He introduced me to other pastors who are his friends. I have gone in their churches, I have been able to train sunday school teachers in those churches and we are good friends now. They invitem me to teach even their sunday school children who have been able to introduce me to their parents Pastors now trust me with their children and now do alot together which has promoted children ministries in many churches.
