In his comments that heralded the official launch, Pastor Emmanuel Addison of the International Ministries of Christ, lauded the writer, describing him as a “dutiful and promising young cop with an uncommon passion for God’s work”. “Hardly would you find young men of his background with his kind of drive and zeal towards the promotion of the Christian faith.
