When God sends you on a mission, He gives you the vision to accomplish it and you cannot even have a vision if you don’t have passion.
“God gave us the experience as we have done this job (construction) for more than 30 years in the private sector, complemented by God’s grace and wisdom.”Photo Credit: Twitter
