- want to establish or re-establish or deepen a personal relationship with CHRIST

“But you will receive Power when the HOLY SPIRIT comes upon you, and you will be MY witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.” (Acts 1:8)

Born in Ghana in West Africa, he underwent a deep personal conversion to Jesus when he encountered the Catholic Charismatic Renewal following high school. This transformation led Mark into lay missions work. He received ministry training at the International Catholic Program of Evangelization (I.C.P.E.) in Malta, Europe. In 1991, he became a missionary among people dying with HIV/AIDS in Uganda where he also served on a team that trained Catholic evangelizers. In 1993, he returned to Ghana to head the “Know and Tell the Gospel” School of Evangelization.
In 1994 he was elected represented all English and Portuguese speaking countries in Africa on the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services (ICCRS) and served until 2004.

The Life in the SPIRIT Seminars have been one of the best tools in the twentieth century for leading people to new life in the SPIRIT. These seminars have been so powerful because their authors wisely applied Biblical principles, official Church teachings and an emphasis on Baptism, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the Eucharist.
Pope Francis recommends life in the SPIRIT Seminars.
“I ask you for your important contribution to be committed to share with all in the Church the Baptism you have received. You have lived this experience; share it in the Church. And this is the most important service – the most important that can be given to everyone in the Church. To help the People of GOD in their personal encounter with JESUS CHRIST, who changes us into new men and women….It would be very good to organize seminars of life in the SPIRIT, together with other Christian Charismatic realities, for brothers and sisters that live on the street: they also have the SPIRIT within that pushes them, so that someone outside will open wide the door.” -Pope Francis’ address to the international Catholic Charismatic Renewal: http://www.zenit.org/en/articles/pope-s-address-to-charismatic-renewal
“I ask all of you, each of you, that as part of the stream of grace of the Charismatic Renewal planning seminars of life in the SPIRIT, in your parishes, in your seminaries and schools … share the Baptism of the SPIRIT and your catechesis, because it is produced by the work [of the] HOLY SPIRIT through a personal encounter with JESUS, which changes lives.” -Pope Francis at an international retreat for priests: http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2015/06/12/pope_francis_leads_meditation_for_international_priests/1151173
“The breathing of Christians draws in the new air of the HOLY SPIRIT and then exhales it upon the world: it is the prayer of praise and missionary outreach. Share baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT with everyone in the Church.” -Pope Francis’ address on the identity and mission of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal: http://www.news.va/en/news/pope-seek-the-unity-which-is-the-work-of-the-holy
