Harrison and Mercy Kuria
Praise the Lord, we are now in the mission field! Yes, we are now in Kenya and already interacting with churches, pastors youth leaders together with other WOL staff on our ministry strategy and involvement. The key is to continue being Christ's disciples (Matt. 28:16-20) by reaching the young people with the gospel of Christ. We are already registering for the Nov./Dec camps and looking forward to a fruitful and blessed ministry. It is enriching to be able to interact and share the gospel around WOL facilities and will continue to work with Churches and schools to reach the young people with the gospel. My daily ministry is pastoral care (interaction) to the WOL Nairobi staff, Bible clubs in schools, and preaching in Churches around the Nairobi area. WE WILL BOLDLY PREACH THE WORD (2 Tim. 4:2).
I received Christ as my personal savior in 1986 in a youth camp and grew in Him through the discipleship of my youth pastor. I served as a youth leader in my Church and then joined Moffat Bible College in Kenya in 1988 and graduated in 1992. I became a youth pastor for three years and then served as senior pastor for seven years in Kenya before moving to the USA for further theological studies. I have studied at the Indiana Christian University, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and Baptist Bible Seminary. During my studies, I have attended Hillcrest Baptist Church in Mishawaka IN and served as a deacon and a Bible teacher. The Lord has directed me to go back to Kenya to minister to the youth and has graciously allowed me to join the Word of Life International as a missionary to Kenya
My wife Mercy received the Lord while in her second year of high school and served in the Christian union at school and also in her church as a youth leader and Sunday school teacher. We got married in 1994 and she has served alongside me in Kenya and here in the USA at Hillcrest Baptist Church. We have five wonderful children, Faith 19, Victor 12, Grace 7, Joy 2, and Jesse (Baby 6m).
Colossians 1:28-29 "Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily."
