fellows who will never see the Kingdom of God .

An American preaching couple (Reverend Mr & Mrs Stumbles) held a

crusade in Kiambu where Njoroge, their Kiswahili translator, did a real

mess of the whole event..... and meaning

Rev STUMBLE: Everything comes from above.!!

Njoroge : Vitu vyote huja juu juu,

STUMBLE: So you see my brothers and sisters,

Njoroge :.......Basi ndugu zangu waangalieni akina dada,

STUMBLE: know perfectly well,

Njoroge :.....Na muwajue vizuri sana ,

STUMBLE: That all world affairs,

Njoroge:.........Kwamba mapenzi yote duniani,

STUMBLE: are successfull only if held from above,

Njoroge:.............Hufanikiwa tu ikiwa mmeshikana juu juu.

STUMBLE: Remember, faith is your pillar,

Njoroge:...Kumbuka kuuamini mlingoti wako,

STUMBLE: Keep it first and above,

Njoroge:..............uuweke kwanza juu juu.

STUMBLE: Let it run very deep and strong,

Njoroge:...............Ndo kisha uukimbize ndani kabisa tena kwa nguvu,

STUMBLE:Should anybody want to test you,

Njoroge:..............Mtu yeyote akitaka kukuonja,

STUMBLE:......will feel its work,

Njoroge:...............Ataisikia kazi yake

STUMBLE: Then from deep inside you'll feel peace pouring out,

Njoroge:........ndo kisha baadaye utasikia kutoka ndani sehemu moja ikimwagika nje,

STUMBLE: That peace will flow and enter even those you are with,

Njoroge:.......Sehemu hiyo ita tiririka na kumwingia uliye naye,

STUMBLE: and that peace will remain.

Njoroge:..............Na sehemu hiyo itabakia.


Njoroge:............ Huyo ni mwanamme

lawyer for free

i know a friend of mine who makes me really proud of her. She's been training for Law something.....frankly i think the joy of seeing an advocate come to the dock at a time when i felt i was going to be put in the locks feels the same way when extravantgrace appears. i feel locked up; extravagant grace gives vagrance and bliss.
variously i am without doubt about God's great love for me and his plans. Each time i fall, he stands on the dock to refute the same failure by letting me know i can stand. do you know a lawyer who could stand for free? that is trully extravagant grace.

FW: Nairobi pix--enjoy the beauty!!

Subject: Nairobi pix--enjoy the beauty!!

Ever appreciated how beautiful Nairobi is?

See for yourself!

I am not, but He knows my name
I am not, but He has pursued me inHis love
I am not, but I have been purchased and redeemed
I am not, but I have been invited into the story
I am not, but I know the creator of the universe
I am not, but I know I AM!!!!!!!!
I am not but I know I Am

You and I are tiny, Miniscule. Transient. Microscopic. A momentary and infinitesimal blip on the timeline of the universe. A seemingly undetectable alliance of dust particles held together by the breath of God.

The sum of our days is like a vapor-our accumulated efforts like chaff in the wind. Among us, even the richest of the rich owns nothing. The strongest of the strong can be felled in one faltering heartbeat. We are fleeting mortals. Frail flesh. Little specks. Phantoms.

If this makes you feel a tad bit uncomfortable, you're not alone. Invariably, when I talk about the vastness of God and the cosmos, someone will say "you're making me feel bad about myself and making me feel really really small," as if thats the worst thing that could happen. But the point is not to make you feel small,rather to help you see and embrace the reality that you are small really really small.

But thats not where the story ends. Though we are transient dust particles in the universe that is expanding faster than the speed of light, the unexplainable mystery of mysteries is that you and I are loved and prized by the God of all Creation.

Simply because he wanted to, He fashioned each of us in His own image, creating within us the capacity to know him. And if that wasn't enough, in spite of our foolishness and rebellious hearts, God has pursued us with relentless passion and patience, fully expressing to us His unfathomable love through the mercy and grace of the cross of His son, Jesus Christ

Tribute to (Bishop) David Gichuru

I write this mail knowing that this was man who became bishop long before he was ever made one. I met Reverend Gichuru in 1988 when he was training at Kaaga circuit. Truly this was a great preacher, a man of God, he was full of youthful vigor and i'd agree with all those who are saying that his selflessness is unmatched.Bishop, sang parapanda, blew a trumpet and won us from our tender age. he joined our youthful groups and encouraged them. We saw in him the redemption of the Church from ancient traditions to very youthful oriented services. days are when he would encourage those of us in the late eighties who were deemed to be rebellious. he encouraged a young group of singers called 'revivors'. later in the nineties he was with us again in the group known as 'the fellowship'David, has kept in touch with me for all the time he has been in the states. He was a dependable man. he always wanted the best for his people..how can we say bye to such a great man? People of God, beloved and won by the Lord, this is an example of what the Lord does to us.Grace, AMAZING GRACE, you are a winner, cos the Lord who took away Bishop from you, is the same one with you. you will be amazed at what GRACE, he will give to you.for all his friends, lets take courage in him who overcame the world. Let's celebrate a great man. indeed he was a BISHOP.
