The Praying Listener


The following are excerpts from an on-line article at

We had heard about him from his pastor, and his mother had requested that if Pastor James was ever in the central province of Kenya, he could visit them, as her son was a regular listener. His name is Kamau. He is probably in his thirties, crippled in both legs and walks on all fours.

When he was told that the TTB producer had come to visit him,he jerked uncontrollably with joy, clapping his hands vigorously and shouting, “Praise the Lord!Glory be to God! Praise the Lord!” for about five minutes. Words cannot adequately describe the joy when they were introduced. Kamau could hardly believe that his beloved Bible teacher was right here in his home. He could touch him and see him.

Kamau could give account after account of various episodes of the programme. He could retell the illustrations that the pastor gave on air. Because of his disability, he is unable to go to church and the TTB programmes, he says, is his church. He may not be able to kneel down to pray but it amazed us that he spends 15 minutes in prayer before each broadcast, praying for the producer and for those who would be listening. He also prays for another 15 minutes after each broadcast.

“I do not see him the way that you see him,”says his mother, referring to Kamau’s disability.“I see a servant of God, a prayer warrior.”
