“I can’t imagine where I would be today without the message, passion, and unforgettable influence of Dr. Billy Graham.”
This is the story of Gabriel Mwaura a 39 year old Software and computer maintenance expert turned waiter.
Born and raised in Nairobi under the care of his elder brother, Gabriel studied Information Technology (IT) System but ventured into hotel industry first as a cleaner after he couldn’t get a job opportunity in the IT field.
Now a waiter, he shares how his life was touched by Billy Graham.
“10 years ago while watching Billy Graham on Family TV I got convinced and gave my life to Christ.” Gabriel Mwaura -Family media Partner
Evangelist Graham affected millions of lives through his evangelistic crusades and TV program and Gabriel Mwaura is just one life that was forever changed by Graham’s boldness in preaching the Gospel and his foresight to use media like television, to get Christ’s message into the living rooms and lives of people all around the world.
“I can truly say I am blessed by what Family Media is doing. I don’t earn much but I became a partner so that another soul would be rescued by the message that is on the airwaves.” – Gabriel Mwaura
The late Billy Graham was a true “Fisher of Men.” His message and the ripple effects of his work is still being felt today.
“When I gave my life to Christ, Dr. Graham was broadcasting a special evangelistic crusade on TV. He introduced me to a forgiving and loving Christ, one that did not care how I looked or what I’d done, but was willing to accept me and wash my sin away if I would only reach out to Him. That program changed my life. I gave my heart to Jesus and the decision didn’t just change my heart, but it also completely changed the direction of my life.” Gabriel adds; “I don’t know where I would be today without the evangelistic ministry of the late Dr. Billy Graham through Family TV.”
Many people around the world thank him for “throwing the net” Gabriel was caught by it and now in return he is partnering with Family Media to reach more people for Christ with the message of hope and salvation.
Like Gabriel Mwaura, when you are waiting on God, do what waiters do: Serve!
