Death has robbed us of a very faithful, committed and dedicated servant of God.
Famously known as Professor ‘T’, he has been previously aplouded, “When Professor ‘T’ looked down, a building went up”. No wonder, when he LOOKED DOWN, at DAYSTAR COMMUNICATIONS, a CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY WENT UP.
Death has robbed us of a faithful, committed, and dedicated servant of God.
