    Thank you Rev. Dr. Noll for the great work you are doing in Gafcon. Am thrilled to see that God will bring great blessings to our Anglican Church through Gafcon. Thank God for those faithful CMS and BMS missionaries who preached the Gospel to us faithfully, through the Gospel they showed us the way, Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one can now mislead us to get out of the way, Canterbury is not the way, Jesus is the way. Gafcon the hope of my church. To God be the glory. Amen
