    Papa Osborn, you’ve been an irresistible influence to the world. Just finished reading one of Papa’s books- outside the sanctuary, reinvigorated by the book and i decided to checkout some of His soul winning tools online only to learn of his transit. We believe in the life above death and hold an undying conviction of seeing rapture with our bodies transformed. i really had wished to see papa in that flight. Papa rest in Christ and i hope to see you one of these days in the spirit. Adieu!

    Oh my father my father in faith. I w`d never be the believer i am Without TL Osborn. Who visited Uganda in a time when the Word of God went out of his mouth to change everything about the country. The government, the people and the church.
    The spirit of God literally rained down on everything and everywhere up to today. And now the government and the church have a real understanding….and the first lady is born again.
    Oh my God there is more glory in me imagining where he is now. May God help me make well of my journey, just as my father in faith has. And may his soul wait in peace, if he even have to be among those who wait . For , the man on the right hand cross stepped straight into paradise that evening as the lord promised him.
