The name “Disciple” came after a revelation due to meditation of verses 21 & 22 of the book of St. MATTHEW chapter 4.
His second born brother and Disciple left their father in Muslim religion and joined Anglican Church in 1999. While having the same names as of those disciples in Matthew chapter 4, his brother being ‘Yohane’ as John in english, currently is an Anglican priest in the Anglican diocese of southern Malawi and Disciple now ministering through gospel music as well as preaching which resembles to those two brothers in the book of MATTHEW 4:21 & 22 who accepted Jesus Christ’s call to the extent of leaving their father to be His disciples and fishers of men and he thought of calling himself a Disciple of Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior.

They were actually motivated by the gospel of St.JOHN 14:6, up to date they call this verse as the origin of their salvation and the turning point to become christians and God’s servants.

Disciple’s main duty in committing WholeHeartedly into gospel music ministry is to help bring alot of people into the Kingdom of God that we are all called to be. (1 TIMOTHY 6:12).
