My Father is a man of faith, hope and immense resilience. As a young boy he desired to get formal education but the death of his father forced him to stay home and take care of his mother and siblings.
Kipchumba Murkomen Mother
In mid 1970s Dad married Mum and together left their home in Kaptogol, Embobut Ward to go and serve as casual laborers in Trans Nzoia and the upper parts of Marakwet West. That’s when Dad gained little knowledge on how to read and write. As a result of interacting with his masters and fellow laborers he also learnt to speak some little Swahili.
Kipchumba Murkomen ParentsKipchumba Murkomen Parents (Father and Mother)
My parents returned back home in late 1970s. Dad was appointed as a Catechist by Father Reinhard, a German born priest who was in charge of Embobut Catholic Church. Dad served diligently. His communication skills were enhanced because they had to understand each other with the Mzungu Priest. It was Father Reinhard who first Baptist me as a child and he truly loved my family.
Later on Dad moved us to SDA albeit for a short period. He was influenced by his new found friend who was a gold trader from Baringo Mr.Abraham Somokwony. The SDA Saturday services were held in our home in Korokwen, Embobut. By 1983/84 Dad migrated us again to a new Church, the African Inland Church (AIC) where we have remained up to date.
Dad was immediately appointed a lay Preacher at Chawis AIC. He was given the title of an Evangelist and soon thereafter he served as a Chairman of the local church.
In late 1980s Dad decided to do home schooling. He engaged a teacher to help him read and understand English. I knew it well because when we started our primary education Dad was also busy schooling himself. He bought books that translated words from English to Kiswahili. He also bought children novels to try and understand some English. His best book though was the Bible, he could read a Bible passage in Kalenjin, Kiswahili and English. By mid 1990s Dad’s Kiswahili and English proficiency had improved tremendously.
In 1996 Dad officially enrolled for training at AIC Kao la Amani College. After two and half years of education, he graduated with a certificate in Evangelism and Church Leadership a qualification which gave him more authority to serve in the church.
In 2014 on the strength of his qualifications at AIC Kao la Amani College, Dad was admitted to Kapsowar School of Theology where he graduated in 2015 with a Diploma in Theology and Pastoral Ministry. He was officially licensed to serve as a Pastor in 2015.
A lot of what Dad has achieved only happened because he has a fantastic friend, motivator, backer, cheerleader and prayer worrier in the person he married – Our loving Mum.
I appreciate all who have supported our Dad and family thus far.
