I love what I do at KMC because it’s the simplest thing to do every day I wake up in the morning. It doesn’t mean that there are no challenges it just means I am not moved by challenges around me because of the revelation I carry in my life. It’s is not what I can do it’s what the Lord is doing in me and that’s what really matters. I am a success because I find it simple to become and the fact that I don’t have any other choice in life.
