I was raised knowing Jesus Christ. During my early growing-up years, I attended church regularly, mainly because my mother was the choir director and organist. I was baptized at the age of 14 or 15, but only because all the other members of my Sunday School were being baptized. Once I graduated high school, I drifted away from the church and over the next 20 or so years followed a few paths that I wish I hadn’t.

I began to learn about and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through an excellent teaching pastor, a loving congregation, and participation in the choir

Then a co-worker and close friend invited me to a large Baptist Church, where I began to learn about and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through an excellent teaching pastor, a loving congregation, and participation in the choir. I subsequently joined several Bible studies and small groups, all of which have been instrumental in helping me to continually grow in my faith.

I remember being in church and going up to the altar and crying. I was so tired of the life I was living. I needed help. I felt a sense of peace at that time and knew that if this Jesus thing can work for some of these other guys, then it can definitely work for me.

We built the first church with great difficulty. We went back to the States and the board asked us to become mission staff with the Outreach Foundation. That was 25 years ago, just about, and we’ve gotten more involved with Kenya as days and years went on.
