In the last edition, I explained the importance of name as a means of identification. The name is powerful than the person himself because the name will continue to exist even when the person is no more. Many people have passed on but their names live longer on earth than them.

It was around 5am that Elliot realized he was already in police custody. His shout attracted the police on duty to check him in the cell. Elliot asked the Police officer a question that made him silent and dumbfounded. He was thinking about what Elliot asked him. He left the cell weeping bitterly in his heart. What can be the question a drunkard asked officer James whom his colleagues usually call Pastor( due to how he does among them and how he do explain the Scriptures to them). The question is……..
