About Pastor Simon Mwaura and Lucy Thuo Mwaura
After being taught on Global Focus by Rev. Dick McClain at Weddington UMC (NC) & Mt. Pisgah UMC (GA) Simon had a definite Call to reach the least reached and the unreached tribes with the Gospel of God’s Grace. He founded God’s Grace for All Nations (GGFAN) seven years ago in 2008 alongside a team of dedicated board members. The vision of GGFAN is that all the 122 tribes in Kenya would have access to the Gospel of God’s love . The mission is to make the Gospel more accessible to Kenya’s 22 unreached and least reached Tribes. GGFAN works cross-culturally, not just with the Kikuyu Tribe, to develop new indigenous leaders in each tribe, cooperate with other ministries globally, meet physical and spiritual needs, and glorify Jesus. Every year, many lives have been transformed, destinies realized, churches planted, and Visions accomplished under this ministry.
In 2007, Simon and Lucy founded the Home of the Good Shepherd. Simon had served as a teacher in various capacities with the ministry of education for over 10 years before resigning to answer the vocation as a Pastor. Home of the Good Shepherd is part of the comprehensive ministry of GGFAN. Pastor Simon and his wife Lucy are the General Overseers of GGFAN and the directors of the Home.
Initially, Lucy’s attention had been drawn to the plight of the street children in Nyahururu town and she started a feeding program for them. The need was huge, as more and more children continued to run away from home to the streets due to poverty and abuse. Together with her church congregation she could feed the children but could not provide for shelter, and the children had to sleep in cold dark alleys. Lucy, along with Simon, had a dream and a desire to do more for the children. Through the partnership of friends who also wanted to help provide a home of care and protection to the orphans and vulnerable children, Home of The Good Shepherd was born.
Simon and Lucy both love reading. He loves reading leadership and motivational books while Lucy loves reading books for women in relation to family, prayers and leadership. They have three children, a daughter (Faith) and two sons (John and Daniel), and one granddaughter (Jasmine).
