Growing up as a young boy I was truly blessed to have a Grandfather who not only had a passion for Business, but one who loved God deeply, and gave to the planting of several Churches. My Grandfather was my mentor and one who gave me the foundation I needed in Jesus Christ. I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart at a very young age and my Grandfather always took me to Church with him every Sunday until I relocated to Toronto, Canada to finish my education. Relocating to Toronto and not having the continuing mentoring from my Grandfather caused me to drift away from God due to my devoting more of my time to sports. However, the Holy Spirit was always drawing me back to Him. It was not until I had a personal encounter, visitation with God that radically changed my life for the better. That day God showed me my heart and imparted into me not only a Refiner's Fire but a deep love and thirst for Him. God also gave me a revelation pertaining to a natural heart, and a spiritual heart. It was an awesome revelation that I will never forget.
Receiving the infilling of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts1:8) allowed me to grow in Christ, and with it came understanding, knowledge, wisdom, revelation, and anointing. Sure I walked through many tests and trials like Joseph did, but all a part of God's beautiful hand of preparation on my life. Joseph also went through God's boot camp that prepared him for his call to go from prisoner to Prime Minister to save a Nation. From early in life, Joseph embraced the destiny passed down through the generations of his family line. A timeline begins when a person fully embraces his or her place in the general calling to live as a part of God's Kingdom. For us, that means the starting point of the timeline is the Lordship Decision when we make Jesus master of our choices as well as Savior, and embrace His design for our destiny.
I learned quickly that being humble and having a good attitude both in the valleys and on the mountain tops was essential to my spiritual growth. As I grew in Christ I became very involved in Marketplace Ministry serving the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMF), and other marketplace ministries building strategic relationships that are important to my calling and vision.
In the early part of 1993 at a Prophetic Conference in Barbados, I received two very anointed and powerful Prophetic Words that were released over me by Prophets Leon Walters and Antoine Williams that spoke right to my heart and set me on a pathway to my calling. I knew without any doubt it was God speaking to me through His Prophets, just as the Samaritan women at the well knew when Jesus ministered to her prophetically about her life, (John 4:1-19). Those prophetic words released over me helped me to understand why I was undergoing severe testing. As confirmed by the word, God was preparing me to be used as "Bread" for hurting people and for the Nations.
In that same year, after the Prophetic Words were released I was on a business trip to Trinidad & Tobago. I was traveling in a taxi going to my appointment at the Trinidad Cement Company as I supplied the company with Kraft Paper Sacks for their cement product. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit whispered to me, "I am going to use you to take My Glory into the marketplace". God was asking me for my commitment to answer His call on my life. I argued with God like Moses, that I did not have the ability to answer His call. God quickly responded, "My son you can". After realizing God was not willing to allow me to escape I agreed that I would serve God. However, If God’s plan was to use me, I wanted to see results in individuals being healed, delivered, and transformed by His power. I was tired of dead, powerless, religious Churches where individuals come Sunday after Sunday and leave without God’s touch. I shared with God my heart and how I felt. I asked God to allow me to minister with His Presence, Power & Anointing wherever I go as I wanted individuals to truly meet with Jesus and experience His love and healing touch. Out of those encounters came the birthing of the ministry Glory@Work International.
