One thought on “Guide to John Barber’s blog (2)


    Dear man of God John Barber, i have read all your info and indeed i have loved what you really do and glory be God who made us friends. I also love teaching God’s word, doing charity in form of giving medical care to the homeless and those from extremely poverty stricken families using the limited resources i gather from my salary. Am a medical laboratory technician for a district hospital. John i have learnt that you have gone and done charity to various places like India and Israel but not in Africa yet. Do have any plans to do some of your charities for AFRICA? If yes, am directly involved in child ministry doing and teaching children alot of things ranging from hand made crafts, farming, education, feeding, housing and above all preaching the Good news to these children. I also bear a vision of starting a child-centred program to continue giving free medical care to the most vulnerable. I will reply via email. God bless you John.
