This is my story on how God transforms people,and also showing how God is merciful, if he forgiven me is true he can forgive anyone by faith.

my story of transformation.

no big sin that God cannot forgive



Him we preach and proclaim, warning and admonishing everyone instructing everyone in all wisdom, that we may present every person mature in Christ

~Colossians 1:28~

I dropped out from school in 1991, while in standard 5 (fifth grade). I started a new life in the streets of Nyeri town. There I learnt how to smoke cigarettes, bhang and Petrol. My life was so miserable. Like many other street children, I slept on verandas and ate from garbage. There was no place to take a shower. So we would go to the river to bathe, which very rare. So I was dirty and smelly for most of the year.

After some time, I realized that my mother was trying to look for me all over. So during the whole of 1991 we used to be a like lion and antelope. I was being hunted. So I got tired of hiding and decided to disappear to a place where she couldn’t find me.

So in December 1991, I boarded a bus to Nairobi. I knew no one in the big city. I alighted at a place called Ngara where I made my home. For three days I didn't speak to anyone except hotel waiters because in evening I would sit outside a certain hotel there to ask for something to eat. On the third day, I saw a street boy carrying a sack and I decided to follow him. Slowly I trailed him, until he got into a very narrow street, an alley in between buildings.

From afar I could see many street boys beside a dump-site. I cautiously approached them and when they saw me they received me well, asking some questions like: where are you from? Why are you here? And will you be able to endure all that will come on your way? I asked them what it means to endure. They told me that sometimes police men would come and arrest them, sometimes they would be beaten for no reason and that there was no one was actually willing to help them. I was silent for some time pondering but knowing I had no option. Home was far and I had no one to run to. So I said, “Yes I will endure.





” The master of the "base” shook my hand and said, “Welcome to the base, you are one of us.”
In Nairobi the life was easier because I had no fear, my mum was not around, so I could do anything at any time without fear of bumping into her. As the days advanced we became friends and got closer. They taught me how to collect second hard charcoal at the hotels’ dump-sites and sell them at Ziwani or Kariakor. This became my livelihood. At that time I was only 14 years old. I started drinking heavily and abusing drugs such as marijuana, cozepham, roipnol, Heroin, cocaine and glue). Can you imagine a 14 year-old as an alcoholic or abusing such hard drugs?



All these l drugs are very expensive and so the gang also taught me how to steal scrap metal from garages. Sometimes I would even sneak into people's yards to steal their property. After some time the addiction became so bad so bad that I started to steal even motor vehicles parts during traffic jams. I would remove wheel caps, side mirrors, sun visors and would snatch handbags from cars. To see more on how street children steal rob motorists, visit this link:

Because of that life of crime, prison became my home. Since 1992, I was convicted like ten times, sometime two years imprisonment, three years, nine months and many more. In 2006 I was thrown into Kamiti G.K prison. I got so sick since I could not access the drugs and the withdrawal symptoms affected my work at the prison, One of the rangers beat me with a baton since I was slacking on the prison duties, I was so furious. "Why can’t he guy cannot understand me?"



One the evening in the cells, I asked myself : “Would God really forgive me?” I struggled with that question a lot because I thought God was so angry at me and there was no way he would forgive me. Without knowing that the seed of transforming was inside me, I decided to give myself away to be killed because I was so hopeless but God sent somebody to me. That was in the year 2009. He gave me hope, he took me to church where I met brethren and found love like never before. I received Christ after nine months. In 2011, God called me into ministry. That same year I got married to my beautiful wife Naomi, whom I love so much> God gave me a favor to join a seminary where I obtained my diploma in Theology. Today I am a minister in Kawangware at church called Tandaza Celebration Center. I am currently preparing myself to sit for KCPE and later KCSE. My vision is to: Learn more to be able to reach many.

So as paul said "No big sin that God cannot forgive" is true I am a witness because God forgave me, Jesus paid ransom for my sin.

That is summary of my story,working a lot to write a book so that many will read and understand that God can forgive anyone except Satan because he is already judged.
