Since my childhood, I had a very huge love for God and his work. I had to do evangelism and training of women to help them in their spiritual life with God. I am grateful to God for His infinite love; he chose a humble person as me and gave me freedom... I am glad that God has been using me to set free the souls of women, to mobilize, sensitize, form and transform a lot of women leaders of Francophone Africa. May God fortify us and help us accomplish His work in love, joy and peace.
