Victory in Kenya

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

God has a great inheritance for you, but an enemy wants to steal it. This thief blinds believers to God’s goodness, but it doesn’t have to be that way!

We believe you will be encouraged by this victory story from our Kenyan partner. First, some facts about the harshness of life there:

• Over 50% of the population lives below the poverty line.
• 40% of the people live on less than $2 a day.
• Less than 3% of the population will live past age 65.

Despite the swirling turmoil in that country, however, Ronald spoke only inspiring words of thankfulness.

“My father had four wives. He was a teacher in the village, so I had to adapt to living with my siblings from other mothers to pursue my primary education. My father could not pay school fees for his 20 children, so I could not go on to university.

“But God was on my side. I was able to get a job and a driving license. I married, and we began having children. I was faithful to my jobs and rewarded with promotions.”

Through it all, Ronald gave credit to a God he didn’t even know – but who was always with him. When Ronald heard the Gospel, he readily received Christ and began giving as generously and faithfully as the God he trusted – once even giving away his only vehicle.

“Eventually, we saved enough money to move from our one-room home to a two-bedroom house that we built. Our children were able to finish university – and now God has given us nine grandchildren. God is so good to us.”
