Mzee Jackson Kibor, who is widely known as the Men’s conference chairman has decided to give his life to Christ ditching the unholy ways of doing things.
Kibor took this next step in his life when he was baptized at a hotel in Eldoret town. He was accompanied by his family members. Retired AIC presiding Bishop Silas Yego led the baptismal ceremony which was conducted in a swimming pool and lasted for about half an hour.
Kibor, who is 87-years old, wore a white suit and was immersed in the water by Bishop Yego. That marked a new transition to his life which he described as a start of a “peaceful life in Christ.”
“Praise Jehovah, when I decided to go to Church I was told that one has to be baptized to be saved. I have made this bold decision to be baptized because life is precious. Everyone needs to be ready since nobody knows the hour or the time,” Kibor said.
His wife stated that before seeking salvation, Mzee Kibor had called for a family meeting where he reconciled and apologized to them.
“This year, he called a family meeting and sought forgiveness. I am so happy that he has accepted to be saved,” she said.
Bishop Yego on his applauded Mzee Kibor for making the right choice in life and used the opportunity to ask the young people to emulate him and seek salvation.
“He approached the church leaders and said he wanted to be born-again. But he first shared this with members of his family . . . I want to say that it is never too late for one to seek God’s kingdom. Once, Gods’ spirit has really touched one’s soul, it becomes untenable for one to accept God’s ways,” Bishop Yego said.
He added: “The Book of Psalms says that all those who have accepted Christ are like the Lebanon Cedar as they remain strong despite the age and will continue to do the work of the Lord.”
Mzee Kibor in the past has been making headlines with numerous divorce cases. One which went viral is when he divorced Josephine Kipkoech, his wife whom they had been in marriage for 50 years.
Most recently he was entangled in a vicious battle with his sons over a piece of land. Mzee Kibor was seeking to evict them but the court stopped him.
