Word of Life Missionary
Word of Life Nairobi, Kenya
To provide vision, leadership and oversight for all departments of word of life Kabete in alignment with the mission, core values and philosophy of the ministry of word of life fellowship.
At the age of 15, after years of rebelling against God, I remember one evening in church when the pastor asked, “How many of you are not Christians?” Something I had heard him ask over and over again.
For the very first time in my life, I suddenly realized that I was not a child of God, even though I had been raised going to church. I dint know Him, I just knew about Him. As best I knew how that day, as I prayed with that preacher, I asked Jesus Christ to come into my life, forgive my sins and make me His child.
At my lowest point He rescued me from eternal separation from Him. For, I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me, the life I live in the body I live by faith in the son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me. I’m not perfect, but I am now a radically different person. I really didn’t know life until I started living life on the Lord’s side.
As a result of this saving grace, my wife and I have heeded to the call and commission to taking forth the word of life to the spiritually deprived young people all over Kenya through various means consistent with the holy scripture. This includes; Holiday camps, discipleship class, Bible clubs, One on one, Music presentation, Bible quiz, Sports ministry and Weekend challenge. I also have the humbling opportunity to provide vision, leadership and oversight for all departments of word of life Kabete in alignment with the mission, core values and philosophy of the ministry of word of life fellowship.
Gal 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
