Praise the Lord Rev. Angela! I am glad God allowed us to meet at a very crucial point of my life in the year 2014. Then I was about to sit my final high school tests. I was an unsettled young man, in fact, depressed and had great fear for the future, had problems with family, and drug abuse issues. I had literally hit the wall.
God is good at all times. We met at Dr. & Mrs. Matasi home where you prayed over my life. Things didn’t remain the same. I sat and completed my final tests and got a grade allowing me to move on to the University. God showed me my purpose ( serving individuals, families and communities with the greatest of needs).
I pursued the 4- year bachelors program in conflict resolution and humanitarian assistance and completed it successfully in the month of May 2019. I praise the lord for taking me through. Now I am endowed with skill; they say passion + expertise = solvable!
Since 2017 to date I’ve been serving as a volunteer with the Kenya Red Cross – kitale , implementing an asylum seekers project in coordination with the UNHCR. These asylum seekers flee due persecutions in their home countries ( Burundi, Congo & S. Sudan ). At the Red Cross we offer them shelter, catering services, clothing and basic personal effects in preparation for their transit to Kakuma & Kalobeyei Refugee camps and settlements.
My team is carrying out a resource mobilization for the aforementioned needs.
Your ministry is impacting others and I by keeping “Focus on the World,” the people and communities with the greatest of needs.
God bless you!
