5-Minute-Interview: I can’t listen to people who spread hate speech

Pastor Paul Kariuki

 I'm good at…preaching Bible-based sermon. I love to tell people that Jesus saves. 

I'm very bad at……..listening to people spreading hate speech. 

The last book I enjoyed reading is…..The Great Hope by Ellen G White. 

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…..being given an opportunity to serve as an Adventist pastor. 

One of my worst childhood fears was…..walking in the dark. 

A common misconception of me is…..I am always serious. 

My ideal night out is……having dinner with my family. 

The best age to be is…..25 

In another life I wound have been……a Bible instructor. 

If I was a politician, I would….unite all Kenyans and let them know we are God’s family. 

The best part of job is……when biding a congregation farewell after serving them to the best of my ability. 

My idea of perfect happiness is…..trusting God in happiness and in my weakness.

Living leaders I most admire are…..retired neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson and President Uhuru Kenyatta 

My greatest achievement is….opening Great Hope Academy in Bamburi, Mombasa, to serve humanity.

My greatest regret is….wasting time instead of reading. 

My greatest possession is…my phone. 

My favourite author is….Ellen G white. 

One thing I would change in my life is….I would be more Christ-centred.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be…..I know whom I have believeth and I am persuaded that He is able to care for my family, friends and my church members till we meet in Resurrection Day when the trump of God shall sound and Jesus descend.
