About Baron Muga

Greetings! My name is Baron Muga. I recently relocated back to Kenya with my family after living in the U.S. for 22 years. This blog, that I started many years back just for reflections, is now being re-purposed to share about our journey here in Kenya. I formerly worked most recently as an IT consultant while also being very involved in my local church (Bellevue Baptist Church) in various ministries for many years. Our move to Kenya is a continuation of my response to a call to Ministry. I am currently attending and residing at Africa International University which has a Theology School (NEGST) pursuing a Master of Divinity full time. Ours has been and continues to be a journey of faith and obedience as God continues to direct us one step at a time in living out our part in His precious plan. Some have asked about our funding. We have been living on our savings but the reality is that life in Nairobi is expensive. If you feel led to support our journey during this season of study and growth, please view more details here. More than that, your prayers for us will make a tremendous impact as we continue to settle and proceed with our new life. I will be loading monthly posts here. Thank you for stopping by the site and may God bless you!

The Mugas are in Nairobi!
