    Hello my name is Lizzy Joe, I want to give a testimony about my HIV virus that was cured by a great spell caster. Since last 16 years I have being a HIV positive patient. I never think I we live long again and am so grateful to Dr Greg Carlos who help me cured my HIV virus last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friends about my situation; she told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my VIRUS. I asked her if she had his contact, she gave me his email and phone number, I emailed him and he talked to me and he perform the necessary things and he told me that after 14 days, I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now a HIV negative I couldn’t believe myself I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth, so i contacted him and thanked him for is good work. Please if you are having a similar problem please visit him or contact him at: dr.gregcarlos@gmail.com or whatsApp: +2348146867873… ALL THANKS TO Dr Greg Carlos.

    • That’s not true, a highly qualified electrician is very important on this position, if he did not pass the scientific studies then that is why you are having electricity problems, I’m sure there’s more like him there in Malawi.

Can you now say “no sweet without sweat”? Because the ones who are sweating are not able to find their sweets..take the case seriously coz its painful to us who went to school, searching for vacancies all day bt got none,we cnt sit down and watch that happening
