First of all, I admit that I was a sinner. I lived in sin for the past years of life. My wife also lived in sin as well. But when the people of God visited us in our home, she was the first to accept the Good News and set up a Christian standard of living in our home. Soon afterwards, I accepted Christ. He began a good work of salvation and will keep me until I reach Heaven. My wife and I followed the Lord in the waters of Baptism as a testimony of our salvation.
After some time, I began feeling that God wanted me in the ministry. I was already involved in church work and as a soul-winner, but I began to study for the ministry with an American missionary named Tommy Moore in Eldoret. Since that time, I have taken what he taught me and taught it to other men. Now, there are three men pastoring whom I discipled for the ministry.
I do not work any other jobs and I do not have any regular monthly income. Our family needs are just less than $50.00 a month for our food, clothing, our medical fees and firewood. We are grateful for the support you offer to us. It will be a great benefit and allow us to buy the fat that we need for cooking as well as our milk, sugar, soap and all of our other items.
So far, God has allowed me to start three churches as well as being involved in children's ministry and open air evangelism. I speak three languages; Swahili, Luhya and English and already we have had around 1 ,000 souls saved. In the past, I have worked with a team of pastors but, due to tribal and land clashes that have occurred lately, we have been cut off and we are on our own, I and my co-pastors.
Please pray for us. In our country there is a great deal of strife occurring now. Many Christians have already lost their lives. We live in a house made of wood posts, walls of mud and iron sheets for a roof. Our day begins with prayer and Bible study and in visiting believers and unbelievers. In the evening, we have our family altar and this is the end of our day. In the name of Jesus Christ, and from my inner-most heart, I bow down and from my knees I pray for you aU who have compassion on me and my family's daily needs and our ministry. May God sustain you and keep His hands stretched on our family and ministry.
Every 4 months sponsorship funds are sent to the preachers. With it goes a Missionary Report Form for each one to complete and return to our office. After compilation of statistics they are forwarded by mail or email to the sponsors. Below are past report forms from this preacher.

I was saved on Thursday June 10th 1976. I was baptized three days later at the local Baptist Church. I was called by the Lord for His service that same year. I attended the Baptist Bible Institute and graduated in 1979.
