Meet This Kenyan Pastor Who Is Also Serving As A Soldier In The US Army

Both of these things are tough to go hand in hand, given the apparent differences between being a pastor and being a soldier.

A Kenyan-born pastor who now lives in the United States chose to join the US army in the face of indignation from his flock in a Texas church.

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.

Pastor Anthony Nganga was born and raised in Komothai, Kiambu County, before studying at Beulah University in the United States.

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.
