While the spiritual life will be a part and partial of our program, we’re trying to create a centre of influence where we can meet the physical, social and emotional needs as well. We are now looking for a piece of land in Boroko so that we can connect with the government and stakeholders and the whole community to come on board for us to work together.

People ask me “u no sa hot lo traipla sun ya”, when they see me in long sleeve shirts and hoodies.

Let me tell you what happened 3 years ago on 07th October 2017.

I served the Defence Force for about 21 years.

Within 21 years, I made it up to the rank of lieutenant colonel before I decided to disengage. 

There was a program with the Defence Force for voluntary retrenchment; for people who want to leave the force with extra benefits at that time.

One of the comics I read was about British Special Forces who said of a commander who had rescued high-ranking officials: “If only we have such people like him, we will win the war”.

This stirred me up and became a driving force in me.
I was working when the Crisis erupted, so I went and joined Francis Ona. In the early days, after two years, I was the main man behind Ona. I was one of his bodyguards; that was when we were fighting with the security forces. When they move in one direction, we move Ona the other way.

My father was one of the first evangelists and teachers here in Enga province. As an educator he taught many, many people how to read and write. I guess it’ is inevitable that I would also become a teacher because I had also been raised and taught by American missionaries.
