Meet our first years! In the first few weeks of 2013, our first year students had a class assignment in Computer Skills to type a personal introduction and tell “Why am I at African Christian College?” In this series, you get to meet the students in their own words…
My name is Roberts Kirui. I am a Kenyan aged 40 years and shall be 41 by November 2013. I am a resident of Kitale in Transnzoia County of the Great Rift Valley region. I am married. My wife is Josephine. We have been married for the last 16 years. I am a proud father of four children, three boys and a girl.
Before I came to ACC in Swaziland, I have been a preacher and a gospel teacher at our local Kitale church and other churches around Mt. Elgon region. I have been a principal of Elgon Bible School for five years beginning Jan 2008 – Dec 2012. This was a voluntary service (I mean, I served without pay).
I have also taught in Messiah Theological Institute, a theological college situated in Mbale Uganda.
I do some farming. I also keep a few animals like sheep, goats, cows, and oxen. Though I had to sell a pair of oxen and a heifer (Asia pure breed) and leased out part of my land for three years so as to raise money to get here at ACC.
We do some poultry keeping. All these activities are what keep us going as a family.
I came to ACC with my wife to study theology so as to be well equipped in the Word of God. I am impressed by the faculty that is dedicated and ready to help in this area. The environment is conducive for learning.
In our company is our daughter Mercy. She schools in a nearby primary school.
While here (though faced with quite a number of challenges, like fees for our boys back home, farm input for our remaining acre for food supplement, etc.) with the help of God and the godly, dedicated faculty, I hope I will emerge with the best grades the institution can offer.
Please, God help me!!!
