Why JCfan-Khakava?

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 I recently graduated from Bethel Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. Following my graduation I promised my family and friends who follow my International ministry that I will start blogging on a regular basis. After experiencing several site difficulties at my previous blog address, I have decided to start a new one here. You might be wondering what JCfan stands for. It simply means "Jesus Christ fan." I am a big fan of Jesus Christ because of what He is doing in my life and in the lives of millions of people all around the world. I am His follower and live my life guided by His Word and philosophy. I came to know Him at an early age of four. So, we go way back in our friendship. "Khakava" simply means "All sufficient God" in the Luhya language spoken in parts of Western Kenya where I was born. This name of God is the equivalent of the Biblical Jehovah Jireh in the Old Testament. It speaks of God's love, care and generosity toward all humanity. I always come to God with open hands and ready to receive believing that God wants to give us a lot in this life. And then with open hands I give it all away believing that I cannot outgive God. It is an absolutely liberating attitude to life. Most of what you will read on this blog will be either reflections on what JC is doing around the world in people's lives, insights on leadership, or wisdom I am gleaning from my walk with Him in His Word. I may share some opinions on various contemporary issues of spiritual significance as well. I hope we can have vigorous interactions. Most importantly, I hope we get to see JC more clearly at work in our lives and the world. So, a big welcome to you as you journey alongside my musings.

Adiedo Embraces Hope

World Evangelist Sammy Wanyonyi preaching in Adiedo, Kenya Orphaned by HIV/AIDS, she rarely speaks, not even to her visiting school sponsor Pam Craig who traveled as part of our team to Adiedo from Spokane Washington.  But last Saturday afternoon in the closing moments of the evangelistic festival, Everline walked over to Pam and asked if she could be introduced to the preacher (me).   For once, she had a smile on her face.  The eleven year-old had just asked Jesus Christ into her heart as Lord and Savior.   Several hundreds of people respond to the invitation to follow Christ on day two of Adiedo Festival All across the soccer-field were stories like Everline's.  I cannot forget a ten year-old young man named Ochieng.  On Friday night, he waited backstage patiently for me to leave the stage and then boldly walked up to me extending his hand to greet me.  Although his clothes were torn here and there, I could tell that he had worn his Sunday best to the meeting. 

My Body Fails Me - #SHINEGlobalMissionChallenge- #MuhangaRwanda2014

Yes, I want to tell you all about what God is doing here in Muhanga but my body fails me.  I want to tell you how He is moving through our Kinderroots team where already several thousands of children have been ministered to over the last two days on hills, plains and valleys surrounding Muhanga.  Where hundreds have already given their lives to Christ. I want to tell you how God is moving through our Prisoners of Hope outreach program to where three thousand prisoners were reached with the love of Christ earlier this afternoon with hundreds of them giving their lives to Christ. Where we delivered supplies worth several thousands of dollars to the delight of the prison officials following a devastating fire at the facility that gutted much of what they had beyond salvaging. How God worked to open doors so our team could go in and bring the Good News of Christ. How doors to another prison with even more inmates are wide open for the gospel tomorrow morning. I want to tell you of s

Yes I am back to Blogging

I've been gone from blogging for several years now.  I am glad to be back.  I am looking forward to keep this blog alive and well.  So much has happened since my last blog.  In addition to the global work of evangelism, we launched a new work here in the Twin Cities.  The initiative is called Merge. More on why the name Merge later. Yes, we have been busy as ever sharing the Good News with thousands around the world. But more so, in the last two years God has shown us that the Nations are also right here in our own backyard.  Over one million first and second generation from over one hundred nations in the Twin Cities alone. Our cities are more and more global. The people speak multiple religious languages.  They carry multiple national identities.  They fall in different social and cultural groups. With such diversity of peoples at our door step we must ask the question: Is the "Great Commission" still Great? Is Jesus' command given a couple millennia ago to &
