Kenya’s Anne Obure and Clare Mungai will be flying the country’s flag in the Singapore Masters swimming Championships planned for October 29.
Obure, 33, will be making her debut in the event and will feature in three events thus 50m freestyle, 50m breast stroke and 100m breast stroke.
Mungai, on the other hand, will feature in 50m back stroke and breast stroke (50 and 100m).
Mungai, 35, is fresh from featuring in another masters event in New Zealand last April, where she posted personal best times in all her events. She said her target this time round will be to improve on her events. “In New Zealand, I also took part in the 50m butterfly but I will not compete in the event this time round,” she said.
Obure qualified for the event by virtue of her good time and hopes to win some of her categories. Besides, she said she will be hoping to gather enough experience and exposure during the event as she seeks to form a masters team back at home. “It’s unfortunate that Nairobi Amateur Swimming Association (NASA) no longer cover masters events in their calendar and this is proving hard for those of us who have a passion for swimming,’ she noted.
Obure said they are currently operating under ‘Ogelea Africa Swimming Club’ and would like to make it big after their tour of Singapore. She said they will have to cater for their own travel and accommodation but they are hoping to get sponsors in future events. The two will depart on October 25th via Hong Kong in a bid to have some days to acclimatize.
Kenya had turned away from God and followed after the heathens round about them. Because of this, the Lord’s voice was silenced, the remnants were scattered abroad as Kenya was not in a position to receive the Word of God and judgement was set.
Glory be to God for He gathered us to repent on behalf of the Land, that His glory may return to us. He has indeed accepted our sacrifice and this is what the Lord is now saying to Kenya:
….Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come…..I will even gather you (remnants of Kenya) from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I’ll give you the land… (Kenya). And they shall come and take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from there. And I’ll give them one heart, and I’ll put a new Spirit within you; and I’ll take the stony heart (tribalism and pagan practices) out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh (righteousness and brotherly Love): That they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:16-20)
Brethren we repented and the Lord heard our sincere cry and saved us from the judgement that was upon this Land. It is now our responsibility as the remnant:
To propagate the Spirit of oneness.
To manifest brotherly Love.
To pray unbiased.
As we continue praying for Kenya, let us remember that the rerun is just but a very small prayer item as compared to God’s bigger picture. He has entrusted us with souls. The time has now come for Restitution!
