Anthony Wanjiru Gives Inspiring Chapel Talk

Born in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, Valor’s IT Help Desk Analyst, Anthony Wanjiru, has an inspiring testimony of God’s faithfulness. On Wednesday, September 16, he shared that story with our student body in Chapel.

Anthony talked frankly about some of the struggles he faced growing up in the slums, struggles that middle-class Americans could only imagine. He talked about how these struggles caused him to believe lies – lies that God didn’t love him, that he didn’t matter.

At his darkest moment, however, God intervened in a miraculous way, breaking the pattern of lies. Anthony went on to recount all the ways God has revealed Himself in his life, from being sponsored by Compassion to receiving the opportunity to study in the United States.

Anthony’s message to the students was clear: “We forget we serve a loving God, that we serve a strong God…The God who made the universe, the God who made heaven and earth, Yahweh himself does loves you”.
