“The life I lived before; when my late Dad ( Paul ) was still alive….. was beyond umaskini (poverty) My dad was a carpenter in the slums of Mathare KENYA But when he died there was no money to buy his body casket!! We didn’t have money to pay for the mortuary..we were forced to do unbelievable things just to get him a cheap casket of about 4500 kenya shillings!! A casket that even had holes…… I will tell you more soon when I gather the energy to! The life I’m living today, only God can tell how appreciative of it I am.”

“7 yrs down the line and i still cant get you out of my mind dad… today i went to visit my dad’s grave after 7yrs… i wish he was alive to see what the Lord has done in my life.. i wish he was alive to enjoy my success with me… it pains and breaks my heart equally whenever i think of my late Father..
