“We are ambassadors of heaven so we trust God that every believer that come to this meeting will be thoroughly equipped so that they can stand for God wherever they are.
This is the 5th edition and thousands of young people have been raised. This year, we are transiting into a Non-governmental Organization through a platform known as ‘YMR Global Initiatives’ whereby people that are coming for the training can also be employed and also taught soft skills in technology and marketplace readiness.”
