Ernest had a speech impediment which caused him to be extremely shy. However, he was brilliant in academics and aspired to become a medical doctor. An event that took hold of his life, was a dramatic encounter with God at the age of eight. God showed him in a vision that he was preaching to thousands of people of various colors and nationalities. Although it seemed improbable to this stammering boy, he was deeply moved by this vision.
Many years passed by and Ernest was armed with an admission into the medical college, but God intervened again at a youth camp in 1984. At the altar, as Ernest committed his life to the Lord, God touched his mouth and healed him! At the same time he was filled with the Holy Spirit. It was here that he decided to give up his medical admission and join Bible College .
