I write the kind of songs I will leave in the mouth and heart of the people for a long time. I’m happy that God has given me the opportunity to impact lives and preach his word through music. I am experiencing the prophesies that was given to me many years ago.”Sharing his dream, Richard E revealed – “Many people don’t really like to listen to preachings/teachings of the Word, so I feel I can teach/preach in music because everybody likes music.
The day God called Rev. Chris, he also called me, he called him to teach using words and called me to teach using songs. He said to me “through music, take my divine presence to the people of the world, demonstrating the character of the spirit”. And that is what I am doing”
