Why JCfan-Khakava?

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 I recently graduated from Bethel Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. Following my graduation I promised my family and friends who follow my International ministry that I will start blogging on a regular basis. After experiencing several site difficulties at my previous blog address, I have decided to start a new one here. You might be wondering what JCfan stands for. It simply means "Jesus Christ fan." I am a big fan of Jesus Christ because of what He is doing in my life and in the lives of millions of people all around the world. I am His follower and live my life guided by His Word and philosophy. I came to know Him at an early age of four. So, we go way back in our friendship. "Khakava" simply means "All sufficient God" in the Luhya language spoken in parts of Western Kenya where I was born. This name of God is the equivalent of the Biblical Jehovah Jireh in the Old Testament. It speaks of God's love, care and generosity toward all humanity. I always come to God with open hands and ready to receive believing that God wants to give us a lot in this life. And then with open hands I give it all away believing that I cannot outgive God. It is an absolutely liberating attitude to life. Most of what you will read on this blog will be either reflections on what JC is doing around the world in people's lives, insights on leadership, or wisdom I am gleaning from my walk with Him in His Word. I may share some opinions on various contemporary issues of spiritual significance as well. I hope we can have vigorous interactions. Most importantly, I hope we get to see JC more clearly at work in our lives and the world. So, a big welcome to you as you journey alongside my musings.
