"Gregory is a West African without any formal training in the art of Byzantine Iconography. Nor had he ever heard of the Orthodox Church before our Mission arrived in Sierra Leone some 9 years ago.Yet Gregory is now a baptised Orthodox and by his God-given talent is now making fine icons for our churches. This is his latest - the Blessed Theotokos and Holy Child. Amazing!"
