Learn more about the ministry in Kenya.
My name is Dennis Owino Obiero popularly known as Prince. Born and bred in Eastlands area in Nairobi. Before I got saved I thought being a Christian is being in a family that associates themselves with Christianity and going to church, doing good, helping the needy etc. I didn’t know that there is something extra ordinary that should happen to me in order to be a real Christian. After finishing my High School education something special happened in my life. I became a Christian at the beginning of the year 2009 during a New Year’s Eve concert in a local church in one of the slums in Nairobi. I used to live a life that is not pleasing to God and I was not a believer but I knew that God existed due to my early Sunday school teachings. All that time I had not placed my faith in Jesus Christ but then I got that chance during that concert and I didn’t hesitate but to surrender all to Christ and believe in Him. I then became a believing Christian. I first sensed the call to full time ministry in 2012 just after my college graduation and was working with a certain company. At that time I used to go for missions especially school ministry with a certain Christian organisation. During my time at the mission fields I felt the urge of serving as a missionary but since there was no platform of a well-structured full time ministry I found myself doing part time ministry. I later had to quit my job so that I can get more time to do ministry full time but a lot of challenges came in and it was not easy since I had no formal training on how I can be in a full time ministry. I came to know about Word of Life when it partnered with the one I was in to do a day camp in one of the slums in Nairobi. Most of its staff members lived close to where I grew up and that motivated me a lot. I believe God called me to work with Word of Life in the year 2017 after so many calls from my friends to come and volunteer in their camps as a counsellor but I never got a chance to do that. Finally when I relocated to the coastal part of Kenya, the Holy Spirit directed me to Word of Life because I was searching for a local church and a place where I can volunteer. Since I joined I have grown spiritually and I believe this is the place God wanted me to be so that I can be equipped ready for the full time ministry. I have been through short term Bible School in the Word of Life Kenya Diani facility then later I got a full scholarship to attend Word of Life Africa Bible Institute in Uganda where I gratuated. I joined other colleagues and attended Word of Life Missionary in Training that was based in Kenya at the Kabete facility where I was honored to become a full time missionary then later learnt important tools of support raising. I believe am now ready to do ministry and be used by God to bring life change in people and to glorify and enjoy Him forever.
I was born into a Christian family in 1990. My mom raised me with my 3 siblings because my father died in the genocide in 1994. My "Christian life" was meaningless because I lived a double-standard life. I knew how to pray and went to church every Sunday and I thought that I was saved. I used to disobey people, and associate with wicked people, I didn't know the value of God's word, I used to hate others, I lied and I felt nothing in my heart about these things because I wasn't saved. When I was 15 years old and in high school, a preacher visited our school and shared the gospel from Romans 6:23, Galatians 5:19-21, and Romans 10:9 I realized that I am a sinner and I wasn't saved. That day I decided to receive Jesus as my personal Savior and from that day I desired to stop living my old life, I received the gift of God which is eternal life. After I got saved my life changed, I started to obey, my closest friends were now Christians, and I started to enjoy God's word and viewed it as my guide. Gal.5:22-23 and 2 Cor.5:17. In 2016-2017, I had an opportunity to go to Uganda to learn God's word at the Word Of Life Africa Bible Institute. It was such a meaningful time in my life. I continued to grow in God's word, it is also where I learned how to do quiet time, how to memorize the scripture, to do Bible study and community service. It was an awesome time because I grew in every area of my life. During the missions conference, we were challenged by Romans.10:14-15, Matthew 28:19-20 about being ready servants to go wherever the Lord would lead us and that day I was convicted to be a ready servant. The ultimate decision was made when there was a need for missionaries to Rwanda and during the missionary in training conference I made the decision to become a missionary in Rwanda.
