I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lord for having brought me through my journey at Belfast Bible College (BBC) especially considering I had only one year’s sponsorship when I arrived in 2009.
It is through the generous giving and support of the family at Mountpottinger Presbyterian Church that the Lord made provision for this to happen and so many thanks to everyone at Mountpottinger from the leadership to the membership for accepting the call to be a blessing to me.
At the moment I am working as a Care Assistant at Kingsway Private Nursing Home, within my neighbourhood in Dunmurry and will continue to do so till the time comes to go home. In August I will be going with Mountpottinger Boys Brigade to BB camp in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England.
As things stand now, I will continue to serve the Lord in youth ministry, doing what I did before coming to study at BBC in 2009. Some of the activities I will be
involved with are running Bible Clubs/Bible Studies in schools,
Bible Quiz for High Schools, Youth Fellowships, Sports Outreach especially football and preaching and teaching in churches and other contexts.
I want to bring both my academic and experiential learning from Northern Ireland to Kenya, including the Ulster lingo!
All being well, my girl-friend Fiona will come to Kenya to visit my family at Christmas time and so that will also be a great time of re-union. I hope to make a similar trip to Nairn in Scotland to meet her family before flying back home in October.
Kenya is going through a period of transition as the new constitution is implemented and also as the country prepares for the General Election due in March 2013.
You’ve all left a mark in my life and a new chapter is being written because the Lord allowed us to meet at such a time as this. I am going to miss you all and I hope that we may continue to be part of each other’s life and journey through prayers and by keeping in touch.
I won’t say good-bye because I trust we’ll meet again at some point in the future.
May the doxology of Jude be our experience:
“To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” (Jude 24 – 25).
I will keep in touch with my glorious family at Mountpottinger.
God bless you all,
Maurice McOmollo aka BIG MO.
