I am the founder of the Almond Ministries. A highlight of my background. I am not a Bible scholar. I am not trained theologian. I am not a historian or an archaeologist. My Hebrew is non-existent and my Greek is limited to words: “doner “and “kebab”. I am sharing my enthusiasm for the Bible and for what it has to say. I am not an expert. I am a fan. I don’t know all the answers, which is why; I hope I can be honest about the questions. I would love share or preach the word of God through my blog. Mathew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the of the father and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Its influence on politicians, writers, artists, revolutionaries, visionaries and religious leaders is unmistakable. Its laws the famous Ten Commandments– are at the basis of most judicial systems. Many of the everyday proverbs and phrases we use are to be found in the Bible.
It’s about you and me.
The people in the Bible are very like us. They may dress differently, they may act in unusual way, but the issues they wrestle with are the same issues that face us all. The Bible talk about love, peace, war, happiness, freedom, greed, forgiveness, sex, possessions truth…and a whole lot more. All these issues are just relevant today.
Why Almond Ministries?
I came up with name Almond Ministries after reading a verse from the book of Numbers 17. The Budding of Aaron Staff. On verse 8:The next day Moses entered the Tent of Testimony and saw that Aaron’s Staff, which represented the house of Levi had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds. The almond tree had gone
