It is nothing but God’s amazing grace, that
this one-time vagabond has turned into a devout believer, who has dedicated his
life to the service of the marginalised.
He believes that it is part of God’s grand
plan to mould him as His own instrument, to execute His mandate, that he was tempted
to run away as a child and be exposed to life on the streets …
