Meet Kenyan Pastor Who Also Serves as a Soldier in the US Army

Given the obvious disparities between being a pastor and being a soldier, both of these things are difficult to go hand in hand. In the face of outrage from his congregation in a Texas church, a Kenyan-born pastor who now lives in the United States opted to join the US army.

This is none other than one Pastor Anthony Nganga of Uwezo Gospel Church in Texas, America. During an interview with a local newspaper, Nganga revealed that he made the choice last year after the covid 19 outbreak struck his growing church.

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

He describes how he had a difficult time adjusting to life in America for the first time because he had no one to host him and ended up in a homeless shelter.

“I knew there was no going back once the training started because if you don't, you could end up in jail. I knew I was taking a risk, but I went ahead and did it anyway.I was dedicated and committed, and I wasn't ready to give up my pastoral title. He claims, "I still preach every weekend in different places, and I've now traveled over 16 states."

The US commando says that he is good in m16 rifles as well as being able to throw two live grenades, among many other tasks. Antony Nganga has so fr completed his training and aspires to become an army chaplain.

Here is a video of his story on youtube.
