“As a young boy growing-up in Los Angeles, California, I often wondered how Christmas gifts were made for, and delivered to, hundreds of millions of children around the world, especially those living in huts, chimney-less homes, sunny states like California and Florida, and hot tropical places such as Ethiopia, India, Iraq, Ghana, Mexico, and South Africa. It was not until I visited Axum, Ethiopia that the story of Africa Claus was illuminated in my soul.

I graciously thank God for his Son, Jesus Christ. I thank my wife, family, children, and friends for encouraging me to share my pregnant imagination and critical consciousness with the world. I am grateful to my mother for nurturing my creative intellect, and to my father for cultivating my business acumen. I greatly appreciate the spiritual sustenance that I receive from my church family and home at Rejoice in the Lord Ministries, in Apopka, Florida, as well as the wise and gifted leadership of Pastor Roderick and Vanessa Zak.”
