I am single Kenyan born in the Murang’a County in the 1980s. I am a first born and grew up with a brother and two sisters in the agricultural rural Kenya besides the ever flowing river Mathioya where we enjoyed fishing and swimming while boys. My not well up family is in the “Mbari Ya Kio” village where I spent my childhood and early youth life. I recall my family was not peaceful. Early life was never enjoyable for me. Personal dissatisfaction about why I didn't have an admirable family like my agemates often left me stressed in school, especially in my days as a pupil at Kiriko Primary School. 
To ensure that my own family shall be better and fouded on Godly principles. I and many of the boys and girls in our village struggled to get education but amidst the many challenges I thank God I went through primary and secondary education and also managed to be a student with KASNEB, Be at Word of Faith College, Christian Life International Bible College and others.
As a young boy, I yearned for identity and self-assertion. I am adventurous, I love reading and traveling. Life has taught me to be responsible self-dependent and reliant on God. I will forever remember the most influential man in my life, my late grandfather. He particularly played a lifetime impacting role during my early formative years. He instilled in me the values of hard work, being a decisive man and stable, focused and a thirst for God. He loved me and I would look up to him. He is the family member, who more than anybody else directed me to God. Gave me a Bible as a gift, directed me to the paths of knowing God. Boys need real men to be men in future.
Conversion and Christian Growth
I grew up an Anglican like my grandfather. I loved going to church, was baptized although not confirmed. But with the onset of adolescence where we started being on our own, religion seemed to wane in me. After all no one had ever personally introduced me to Christ even if I had been to church all along and preachers often preached to us during our school parades in Primary school. But the sense of the fear of God had endured in my life all along.
One day while in form one, I was going home from school on a Tuesday evening. I was led to Christ by a passionate young man who I met on the way going about his business. He led me to kneel down by the road where I repented my sins and confessed Christ as my Lord and savior. That’s when I became 'born again.’  I personally decided to follow Christ. I meant it and it was in obedience to the word of God. What a relieve of my burden of sins I had! All my sins had been washed away. I felt so free. What an overflow of the peace of God! I was finally a new creature, born by God, born from above. I had been born of God, God was my Father and I was His Child. Born by the will of God as described in John 1:12, 13. That was the foundation of my relationship with God. All what God has done for me has followed that bold step I took. No wonder I am passionate to have others know Christ as savior. It changes the human destiny!
After the new birth, I immediately started going to church, my childhood church. But the deep thirst I had for God had me wanting for a passionate, Spirit-empowered, charismatic church. I on one day fasted that God would give me a church. Then during the school holidays, a young man invited us for a youth seminar and later a rally. I felt my thirst quenched. I realized I was a believer without a pastor. But then discovered that my spiritual thirst could be quenched at the Glory of Christ Centre Kiria-ini, a church about 5 kilometres away from home in a rural town, of course different from my rural agriculultural background. I made the hard choice. I joined this lively church and became a disciple under Samuel Kahuho the pastor of this church. That was the second wisest decision I made after I had become a Christian. I was now under the ministry of a pastor and he eventually became the real pastor who brought me up in the Lord for a long time. He is a genuine pastor –teacher who naturally cares for God’s flock. Thirsty for God, I was fully involved in the church activities and programmes.  For the more than a decade I have been in Christ, I have never missed a Sunday service. My spiritual growth has been a process. I passed through the Beginners’discpleship programs and leadership training programs. I have attended many training programs out of the church. I have studied with the International Bible School for a certificate, I am a Bachelors’ degree graduate in practical ministries with the Word of Faith Bible College and I am an undergraduate with Christian life International Bible College based in Nakuru. The leadership conferences and seminars I have attended, especially with Clarence Matheny Ministries at Ongata Rongai among others have inspired and motivated me. I have been blessed and spiritually inspired by many servants of God, including many at Word of Faith Bible College under Bishop Thomas Muthee.
Christian leadership and ministry develops through service to God. I have always been actively involved in Christian service all along. I naturally hate idleness. I am ever doing something in life and in the kingdom of God.    Immediately after salvation, I became a Sunday school teacher, a youth minister where I have personally ministered to thousands of youths in my church and in other churches and schools. I have been a discipleship pastor for over five years and have discipled hundreds of young believers. I love missionary work, going to young churches and empowering them in reaching out to the lost in their community. I, with others have founded two missionary outreach movements. The shining youth Fellowship, an interdenominational youth resource movement that has worked with youths in churches within Murang’a and Nyeri counties. Hundreds of youths have heard the gospel and come to Christ in our interdenominational ministry. Christ’s Mission International Network was formed with some colleagues that we met at the bible college. We have preached the gospel in Kenya. Tanzania and Rwanda. We intend to reach out the East African Africa and beyond with the gospel through established networks with churches, institutions and fellow like-minded Christians. The church of christ should invest in missions It’s my prayer to God that He will bless us with the resources that we need to play our part in the fulfillment of the Great commission, in achieving the mission of Christ.
I love Jesus so much and I want to serve Him as long as I live. I look forward to be greater economically, spiritually and in ministry so as to do more for God. I believe that God blesses us for us to work for Him. I look forward to establishing, together with a great team, a great missionary movement that will reach nations and people with the Gospel of Christ.  This will help establish many young and weak churches in East Africa and motivate many to participate in the fulfillment of the great Commission. Led of God and working with him, all things are possible. Join us. Lets work for God. Do what He has called you to do. Serving God is what will be rewarded in heaven and not the other things we do in our secular life occupations. Hallelujah!
