About The Missionary

TESTIMONY

My name is John Gikaru Njoroge from Nyahururu, Kenya. I was born first in a Christian family of three boys, and we were raised at Bible Baptist Church, Nyahururu. Growing up, I went to church and heard many good sermons on salvation, but I had not followed Christ as my personal Savior until one weekend in April 1999. During our regular youth meetings, my pastor preached and emphasized that Jesus has clearly shown us His love and desire for a personal relationship with us (Matthew 11:28-30). That day through closer teaching by one of our church deacons, the Lord saved me. I was baptized by immersion a month after I got saved and joined the church. At that young age, my life was changed. Then my “simple” ministry at church brought so much joy.

CALL TO SERVICE

When I finished high school, I knew that the Lord wanted me in the ministry, but it was never clear in what capacity. After teaching youth and preaching during youth Sundays at church, a love for the ministry of the gospel filled me, and I began seeking ways to develop it. A pastor friend in Kenya told me about a Bible college in Zambia, and I began studying in that country in 2010. I finished a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 2014.

After serving for some time in Zambia, and meeting and marrying my wife, I returned to Kenya to carry on the church planting work in the Nyahururu region. It is a great blessing to lead the expanding work of the ministry in which I was saved and called to serve the Lord.

Kenya, located in East Africa, grapples with a variety of economic and social challenges that significantly impact its population, shaped by ongoing complexities in its current situation.

Economically, Kenya boasts a diverse economy driven by agriculture, tourism, manufacturing, and services. However, the country faces challenges such as income inequality, high unemployment rates—particularly among the youth—and overreliance on a few key sectors, leaving it vulnerable to external shocks and market fluctuations.

Social challenges in Kenya are multifaceted and impactful. Access to quality education remains unequal, with disparities in educational resources and infrastructure between urban and rural areas, affecting millions of children. Healthcare accessibility and affordability pose challenges, especially in remote regions, leading to disparities in health outcomes.

Poverty affects a substantial portion of Kenya’s population, contributing to social disparities and impacting living conditions for many citizens, particularly in rural areas.

Environmental sustainability is a growing concern, with challenges related to deforestation, pollution, and climate change impacting ecosystems and livelihoods across the country.

Kenya’s current situation involves ongoing efforts towards political stability and social cohesion. The country has navigated challenges related to past electoral tensions and occasional ethnic tensions, impacting social dynamics and community relationships.

Issues related to governance, corruption, and the effectiveness of public institutions influence social complexities, impacting public trust and stability.
