Promoted to Glory

But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
I Thessalonians 4: 13-14

The Touching Lives family is saddened by the loss of Jaduong JeconiahOmbuoro Marire. Mzee Ombuoro was a visionary with a generous heart and one of the donors of the land that will be the home of Sanjweru Medical Center. But to us he was our rafiki, friend. It is our prayer that his passion for his community will touch many lives for many generations to come. We do rejoice that he is sitting at the feet of Jesus and has heard his Master say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” We ask that you join us in lifting his family up in prayer as they mourn their loss.

It is fitting that we have just added a Translate Button on here so that visitors can read our updates in their native tongue, including Swahili. You can also go to to see updates regarding the coming events to celebrate Mzee’s life.

We are so grateful that God gave us the privilege of sharing in the vision of this remarkable man – by His grace and for His glory.
