My first public speaking after yielding to full-time itinerant ministry was June 2001, since that day I have been privileged to travel around the world – Asia, Africa, Middle-East, Europe, North-America, South America and Australia mostly speaking to African couples (and singles) in Diaspora.
At every meeting I’ve answered questions. After the first couple of years, it became obvious to me that the questions asked by Africans (all over) in Diaspora about their marriages are the same. I started to collect the questions and promised myself, I will write a book someday answering these questions.
That day came about two years ago, when I started writing the book to answer the questions. I started out wanting every question to be strictly based on what scripture say without my input, but it became very clear that my answers would be based on my best estimate or best interpretation of the principle as it relates to the question.
The answers in this book are my best interpretation from my Biblical-Christianity worldview and knowledge of scripture. I trust that as you read what I have written (with the fear of God), you will not only perceive the leading of the Holy Spirit, but that He [the Holy Spirit] will reveal more to you.
