I LOVED IT BUT : Pastor Decides To Sell His Prized CAR For Charity Which He Had Bought With His 20 Yr Savings

A Welsh pastor waited and saved for 20 years to buy the classic car of his dreams. Now he has decided to give it away to raise funds for charity.

Clive Owen, pastor of Wellspring Christian Fellowship Church in Langstone near Newport in South Wales, and married with two daughters and four grandchildren, had vowed never to sell the 1971 Gilbern Invader Mark II he bought in Bournemouth last year.

His mind was made up on his latest visit to Israel seven weeks ago, when he was at the main hospital in Tel Aviv. A little baby from Syria had just come out of the operating theatre. “As I looked at him he just gave me the most beautiful smile. I thought to myself, I’ve got to do more for these children. I thought, what do I love more than I love the life of a child? The answer was, nothing, not houses, cars or reputation, nothing. I went home and went walking, and thought, I will give the car away.

“I love that car. I waited 20 years for it. But if we don’t practise what we preach, they are empty words. Christmas is a greedy time. We call it greedmass. On one side of the line, people have more than they want. On the other side, they have nothing. At this time of year we must take stock of what we do. If we say, all for God, it must be all for God. If one person in the world realises by my selling my car that perhaps they can do something good, sell something, give something away, then it’s been worth it. My heart will rejoice and I won’t be sad.”

Inter-Religious Harmony : Pope Francis Visits A Mosque, Removes Shoes And PRAYS Silently

Pope Francis prayed silently alongside a senior Islamic cleric in Istanbul’s Blue Mosque on Saturday, in a gesture of inter-religious harmony in a country bordering the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Pope Francis and Grand Mufti Yaran

Francis took off his shoes as he entered the huge mosque, before bowing his head in prayer for several minutes, facing Mecca and standing next to Istanbul’s Grand Mufti Rahmi Yaran, in what a Vatican spokesman described as a joint “moment of silent adoration” of God.

A similar act by his predecessor Pope Benedict in 2006 drew criticism from conservative Catholics and some Muslims.

Several hundred people, many of them tourists, watched from behind police barriers as the pope then walked to the nearby Aya Sofya museum, once the Christian churchHagia Sophia.

A group of school children waving Turkish and Vatican flags chanted “Long live Pope Francis” in Italian as the Muslim call to prayer rang out across the Sultanahmet square, the heart of Istanbul’s historic quarter.

“We must show respect for each others beliefs. God willing the pope’s visit will help in this respect,” said Halil Ibrahim Cil, 24, a hospital worker from Istanbul.

“We want to practise our religion in peace. We want people to understand Islam. We don’t want war.”

Islamic State insurgents have captured swathes of neighboring Syria and Iraq, persecuting and killing Shi’ite Muslims, Christians and others who do not share their ultra-radical brand of Sunni Islam.

The Blue Mosque, known officially as the Sultanahmet mosque, opened in 1616 and is the most famous in Turkey. Its popular name is a reference to the fine blue Iznik tiles in its main prayer room.

Francis was later given a rapturous welcome by Istanbul’s tiny Roman Catholic community when he celebrated a Mass in the city’s Holy Spirit Cathedral. Several thousand people from a Catholic population of around 53,000 packed the small building and others watched from an outdoor courtyard.

eric omondi post

Top Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has come out to share his thoughts on the current situation of the “un supporting nature” for our own talents. Eric Omondi in his words termed the support as not helpful and in his words he said no one will believe in your children until you do, KENYA.

On his facebook page he posted :

“Hey my name is Eric Omondi…am a comedian. God has been good to me…His favor and Grace has enabled me to achive alot. I have managed to travel to a few countries because of talent. Now one thing that stands out about Nigeria, South Africa and the United States(some of the countries I’ve been privileged to visit) is their culture…The culture to support their own…They have away of encouraging talent and we have all seen the results. My beloved countrymen have away of killing talents, we don’t support, we hate, we criticise…We all rise up in arms whenever one of us either ‘fails’ or tries anything new…recently i was once again heartbroken when our own Sauti Sol were nominated for the MTV awards…We didn’t vote, we didn’t wish them well…We ridiculed them on twitter as Nigerians and South Africans celebrated their own…no one will believe in your children until you do, KENYA.”

What Say You ?

Farewell : Nation Media Group’s Nairobi News Officially Shuts Down

Not so happy when a newspaper shutsdown but it happened on May 21st 2014 when Nairobi Newspaper decided go off the market. This was caused by little advertising on the newspaper with little sales the official press release stated.

FAREWELL- nairobi news

The newspaper was launched by NMG after another  Nairobi newspaper   had been launched, but it now seems that it will no longer be on the streets of Nairobi.

On their official statement they stated.

Today, May 21, 2014, we say farewell to you, dear reader.

This is the last issue of the newspaper which you have come to love.  It’s the final, emotional step in our short but action packed life. Good ideas are driven by inspiration, but their ultimate survival is determined by business. Our brave efforts at breaking new ground in Kenyan journalism have foundered on the rocks of crippling economic times.

Little advertising and slow sales growth at a time of rising costs made Nairobi News survival impossible.

November 20 last year seems like only yesterday. Such has been our whirlwind life of enterprising journalism – improbable exposes, dramatic pictures and a refreshing menu of human interest features telling you the story of the city.

With our captivating blend of simple writing and bold headlines, we reached out to the ordinary Nairobi resident. We spoke to ordinary housewives and adventurous teenagers, and we brought new energy into the reading choice of Nairobians proud of their home city.

Thank you for standing by us and keeping the faith. So long, we are gone but Nairobi lives forever.

Adios Nairobi News.

Pat Maich Of BMF Shares : “When Grenades Are Exploding Left Right And Center, Lets Not Allow Fear To Creep In”

In times like this when everything seems to go wrong with our security we need to be prayerful that GOD will watch over our city. For Psalms 127:1 says :

maich bmf post

“A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the LORD protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.”

Here are some words of encouragement shared by Patrick Maina of gospel group BMF.

“Fellow Kenyans,good morning. It is at times like these when grenades are exploding right,left and center and loosing many of us that we must not allow fear to creep in.

This is a tactic that the enemy always uses because he knows that once fear grips us,we loose hope and thus become weak when fighting him. We must let these cowards know that we will stand together as a people and that nothing can or will ever divide or make us fearful.

We are not cowards, we will not run and hide, we will face them and because God is on our side we will defeat them. We cannot loose hope and so let us remain vigilant and together we will defeat the enemy. God bless you and may God bless Kenya.”

Uhuru Congratulates Margaret For Being The First “1st Lady” To Finish A Marathon

We are used to having the same types of  Marathon races year in year out including among others Ndakaini half marathon and the standard chartered  marathon that usually have a big turnout. This year things are happening a bit different after the 1st Lady Margaret Kenyatta championed the “Beyond Zero” Campaign  by launching her marathon dubbed as the Margaret Kenyatta Marathon whose aim was to reduce preventable maternal and child deaths.

Margret Kenyatta ensured that she did not just launch the marathon but also became part of team that was competing in the marathon. Amazingly she did not just start and stopped after a few meters as many might have predicted rather she ended up finishing the entire race thereby  making her the first “1st Lady” in the world ever to finish a marathon.

President Kenyatta who was among the many Kenyans who attended the marathon was deeply moved by her wife’s great display of leadership in finishing the race . He publicly congratulated his wife and thanked Kenyans for turning up in large numbers for the event and supporting the campaign.

See what he said:

 I could not be prouder of Margaret for running and finishing the marathon today, the first by a First Lady anywhere on the globe. She did this as part of her Beyond Zero campaign whose goal is to improve maternal health care, and to buy mobile clinics to ensure that many of our people have access to important health facilities. Thank you all for the support you showed today. God Bless you all.
