Both of these things are tough to go hand in hand, given the apparent differences between being a pastor and being a soldier.
This is Pastor Anthony Nganga of Uwezo Gospel Church in Texas, United States of America.
Nganga said in an interview with a local newspaper that he made the decision last year when the covid 19 outbreak hit his rapidly growing congregation.
He talks about how he struggled to acclimate to living in America for the first time because he didn't have someone to host him and ended up in a homeless shelter.
“Once the training began, I realized there was no turning back because if you don't, you could wind up in jail. I was aware that I was taking a risk, but I decided to go ahead and do it anyway.
I was committed and dedicated, and I wasn't ready to relinquish my pastoral position. "Every weekend, I speak in different places," he adds, "and I've now toured over 16 states."
The US commando claims to be proficient with M16 rifles and can hurl two live grenades, among other things. Antony Nganga has completed his training and hopes to become the army chaplain.
