Mukwenda Kandole’s story is a powerful illustration of God’s providence and divine leading. It’s clear that God has had a special plan for him, and we can see it as we discover how carefully his parents chose even his name. But it starts before that, when his father was saved because a man from Dallas, Texas flew to Kenya, drove to Uganda, and “happened” to run into Mukwenda’s father and shared the Gospel with him.

From there, his father went to Bible college, where he met Mukwenda’s mother. After they were married, they went to Pennsylvania, where Mukwenda was born.

Mukwenda’s story similarly shows God’s guiding hand. While some might expect that being born into a ministry-focused family, Mukwenda may have moved into full-time missions work or other ministry, he has a passion for business. So, after spending time following in his father’s footsteps in ministry, he transitioned to entrepreneurship. However, as you discover when you listen, that’s only part of the story. God has done and continues to work powerfully through Mukwenda in the marketplace.
