New Student Introduction: Brown Mujete

We are excited to begin introducing to you some of our incoming students for the fall 2018-19 entering class. Our first introduction is from Brown Mujete, who joins us as an MA International Cooper Scholar from Kenya. He shares some thoughts on coming to ESR below:

I was born and bred in the western province of Kenya to Christian parents and pastors in the Friends Church Quakers. I’m the third born in a family of four; a brother and two sisters. I schooled in northern Kenya (Turkana County) for both my primary and secondary education where I met and accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior.

After high school, I joined Friends Theological College – Kaimosi in 2006 to pursue a Diploma in Theology which is my passion. While in Kaimosi, I served as a chaplain and a pastor to various schools and churches. In 2009 I moved to Lodwar where I served under Pastor John Moru as the youth pastor in Lodwar Monthly Meeting Turkana County.

I later joined St. Paul’s University – Limuru – Kenya for a bachelor of divinity program and graduated in 2012. My ministerial passion is teaching and preaching the gospel, serving with the elderly people, mentally challenged and people with various disabilities. I like listening to people with various challenges, praying with them and offering myself to help where possible.

In December 2015 I got married to Petra at a colorful church wedding at Eldoret Town Village Meeting. We are foster parents to baby Alexis Judy (18 Months old) whom we took in when she was 2 months old after her mother requested us to do it since she was a student and unable to fend for her. On 23rd March 2018 God blessed us with a baby Boy Drake Jeremy.

Petra is pursuing a diploma in finance and accounting at the moment graduating in November 2018. Our dream is to develop a home for the elderly and people with psychological disorders in western Kenya.

We looking forward to joining ESR to learn and gain new experience from friends for the betterment of the ministry we have been called to.
