Two high elected governmental officials from Kenya are introduced on air by longtime friend and native Kenyan living in St. Louis , Solomon Kendagor, ministering from his St. Louis home with wife Ruby (See www.solomonandruby.com). They are Governor of the Kenyan state of West Pokot, His Excellency J. K. Lonyangapuo and the Health Minister of their state, the Honorable Geoffery LIpole.
They boldly initiate the point in the broadcast that the basis of their Governance is on the Scripture, a cornerstone verse being Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me!”
Both these committed-to-Jesus believers have remarkable credentials.
Governor Lonyangapuo has been urged to become a candidate for the Presidency of Kenya.
The Governor and his Health Minister visited the United States in late 2019 in behalf of the needs of their people, seeking to advance partnerships, primarily with those in the medical field that would benefit their people. Minister Lipole points out the staggering reality that their state has but one physician for every 74,000 people.
(Recently at a funeral I ran into a dedicated young lady in my congregation a few years ago. She is in medical school becoming a physician. I told her of the need. God is calling Christian physicians to meet this need!)
In the next radio segment with these three men – to be posted in the future — one more wonderful reality is noted in this interaction. Their state for decades has experienced hostilities with neighboring states in Kenya and even neighboring countries, such as Uganda. His Excellency Governor Lonyanga convened a peace conference with the leaders of these warring factions … and peace was established … which has held to this day!
Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemaker … “(Matthew 5:9)
My reaction to radio with these men! “We need these fine men in Washington!”
