I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, a husband and father of two (the second born is a few weeks old only). I became a Christian in the 2011. However, prior to that, I grew up in the catholic church. I was baptized as an infant and later on was confirmed. I was very religious and appeared to many people as being well behaved and upright. However, even then, I knew that all this was just a mask hiding the true sinner that I was. I had no saving relationship with God and I delighted in my sins, not willing to let them go. But the turning point in my life was to come years later, in my first year in university. I joined the University of Nairobi in October 2010. In God's providence, I was immediately introduced to a Christian student ministry and was invited to attend their meetings and bible studies. It was during my first semester that I got to hear more about the gospel and began to understand why Jesus died on the cross. During this time, I got involved in a sin that was later discovered. I began to feel a deep sense of guilt for what I had done and this went on for a number of weeks. God mercifully showed me my own sinfulness and I knew that I deserved nothing but hell. But then the Lord opened my heart and for the first time I understood and believed that Christ really did die for my sins. My burden of sin and guilt was removed and I felt a real sense of God's love. From then on I desired to know God more and to know His word more. I desired to forsake my sins and to follow the Lord and serve Him. It has been a journey of growth and sanctification since I first believed, albeit with various seasons of spiritual dullness and little fruitfulness. But the Lord has kept me this far and I'm fully convinced that the One who begun a good work in me will complete it. All to the praise of the glory of His grace!
