Joseph was a student at Wesley House in the 1990s.

The service had been organised to raise funds for the growing Methodist community in Kathera Kenya on the tea-growing slopes of Mt Kenya to erect a brick-built building to replace their timber structure.  Evidence of a new vitality in Kenyan Methodism included regular references to the teachings of John Wesley which were greeted with enthusiasm, including…

When a man becomes a Christian, he becomes industrious, trustworthy and prosperous. Now, if that man when he gets all he can and saves all he can, does not give all he can, I have more hope for Judas Iscariot than for that man!”

Almost 1/5 of the money needed for the new building was raised in an afternoon through direct giving by those present.
