I am a Born-Again-Christian who, absolutely, loves people; I have been an ordained minister of the Gospel of our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ for 40 years, as of September 2007. I have been saved by the glory of God-The-Father for 40 years, as of May 2007! As a child, my mother worked as a domestic. I was allowed to start cooking for a family of nine people at age 9 and by age 11, I was cooking entire cusines.

School & Seminary for a total of sixteen (16) contiguous; consecutive years and am an Alumnus of five wonderful educational institutions in three different States.
