“if you open Acts 20:35 it says … In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work, we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive…. It is every Christian’s duty to give and help wherever possible so that the Lord will bless us more. We follow the teachings of the bible and live by these teachings “ he said .
Asked about how his calling came about, Salem said he started in 2009 where he served under is mentor
“ As a young boy i was overzealous about the work of GOD as i grew up in a Christian family. From 2009 going further I served under my mentor and spiritual father as an instrumentalist in the praise and worship team. The ministry attracted numerous followers as they followed the uplifting melodies . I got more involved in the work of GOD in the frontline only at the age of 14 and i was then appointed as the Sunday School Leader and 5 years down the line was then appointed as the Youth Pastor” he said.
Salem revealed that he had more charity works in the pipeline and will be frequently visiting zim.
