I am Winnie Njoki a third born in a family of three and the only girl. I was born in loitokitok and brought up in a small town called illasit at the border of Kenya and Tanzania. I went to school with Tanzanians and the Maasai community hence had a good command of the Swahili language. I remember this with nostalgia because with time the city has robbed me of that.
In 2007, I joined high school in kajiado and later in 2009, my family moved to Nairobi where we have lived since then.
I am a forgiven sinner by the grace of God. For a long time I thought I knew what salvation is having been brought up in a Christian family and by born again parents. I went through life thinking I had a place in heaven because I faithfully went to church every Sunday obeyed my parents, and baptized at some point.
My understanding of the Christian faith took a shift in high school after the gospel was taught with clarity and I got a clear view of salvation. In 2009 as a form 3 student, I gave my life to Christ and began a journey of discovering the amazing love of God for me.
In 2012 I joined the University of Nairobi and the Christian union. It was a great time of discipleship and getting to know my place as a Christian and to embrace the call of reaching the un-reached. By attending commission 2014 and going through the Kairos course, I realized the place of missions and that as a beneficiary of the love of God I am called to go forth and reach out to those who have not heard of the good news.
I am on the altar here I am transform me, take me to the nations, make me and send me, are words of a song I sang in 2014 and today I stand asking the lord to send me and use me to reach His people.
2 Cor 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.
I am glad I am joining iServe Africa for the apprenticeship program to start in September. I anticipate to learn, to serve and to grow in my walk with God.
