"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Malaki Printers was one of the main stationary shops in town when I arrived in 1989. The man behind the counter was a man name Bhemji. We became friends, as he is a very friendly man. In 1996 when I wanted to marry Grace, he even printed our wedding invitations for free.
He married a fellow Muslim and had children. She though became a Christian, so he divorced her. He married Julia, another Muslim lady. She also became a Christian and even attended two Christian theological colleges.
We have been in their homes many times and they ours. Bhemji has had health problems and even one leg amputated because of sugar problems. In the later years of his life when we visited, he was very open to reading the Bible together and discussing it. Prayer was a must before we left. In the last year or so, Bhemji was the first to push his wife and workers to go to church on Sunday, not wanting to be late.
Bhemji died on Friday night at 11:30PM. He was buried on Saturday morning. Though church meetings are banned, we went on Sunday morning with a few others, keeping our 6-foot distance as we sat outside in chairs. There were had a short service and the Lord’s Supper together. And shared the effect that Bhemji has had on each of our lives.
His children from the first wife are both in USA. His stepdaughter and two grandchildren are in Nairobi. But they were unable to attend because Nairobi is in lockdown, no one comes or goes. And if they did come, they would be put in 2-week quarantine here in Uasin Gishu.
When Kirsten and Ruth were here for the holidays, we went to their house and Bhemji spent most of his time talking and advising them on life issues.
We have a lost a good friend!
Let us follow his example and be FRIENDLY AND CONCERNED for our fellow man.

There is no greater book than the Bible. In the Bible you learn where you come from, why you are here and where you are heading after this life. There are many conflicting messages in the “religious” world. By reading the Bible directly, you learn how simple God’s plan really can be for your life.
