Before Paul became an orphan, his family of Edmond lived in the town of Ngararo, a town that borders the Maasai tribe. Our Kisii community and the Maasai entered into border wars and the Maasai burnt houses of the Kisii and killed many residents of our community who lived at Ngararo border. Paul’s parents were killed during this war, as well as his two siblings.
Paul was a young boy at this time, but he narrowly escaped death and fled to another town away from the border area. But being now alone, he would go most days without food, sleeping wherever he could find a secluded spot.
When the church was doing evangelism in that town, they found Paul lying unconscious. Moved by the Lord to nurture him, they bought him some meals and told him about Jesus. Surprisingly enough, he accepted the Lord Jesus as his personal savior right on the spot!
He requested the church not to leave him helpless in the street. The church decided to bring him into the orphanage and enrolled him into the Rianyakwara primary school into the sixth grade.
Paul is talented in composing songs and he has used his talent to strengthen the orphanage kids spiritually. He wants to be a Pastor after school.
The song is in the local Ekegusii language and says let us worship God, let us serve God.
