“Pastor Bob impacted the world especially my family and ministry in Uganda, he stood on teaching the truth from the word of God, I loved him so much whenever I watched him teach online, he loved God so much in everything he did, we are so sad to lose him but we know that he is with God, it’s very difficult to find people who give their lives to serve God as servants like him, to the family be strong and know that Bob has gone to be with God, and that’s what we all strive for, let’s continue to serve God as he did so that we will also be with God.”
