Bishop John Kun kun preaches at Kona Life Church (www.konalifechurch.org) today. @pastordamien is the Founder and Pastor of Kona Life Church. “Bishop John Kun Kun of the Soul Winning Church in Monrovia was the one who turned Liberia’s most feared warlord and mass murderer Joshua Milton Blahyi, (better known as General Butt Naked) into a man of God. He is a respected man in Liberia and the head of one of the country's most influential churches.
Kun Kun is a calm man with a clear gaze. He moves as fluidly as an athlete, but his speech is as measured as that of an old man. This is his story: When the civil war flared up again in April 1996, he and other church leaders decided to do something against the terror. They decided to do the one thing they could do best in a country in which faith plays such an important role: proselytize. But this time it was the military leaders they hoped to convert. Kun Kun was chosen to speak with General Butt Naked. He went to Blahyi's military barracks in southern Monrovia, knocked on the door and walked in. The man he found there was restless and claimed that he had no time for Kun Kun, as he was taking apart and reassembling his submachine gun.” Read the rest of the article here...
When I was a kid, coffee picking was one of my LEAST favorite things to do. But if there’s anything I can say that I’m grateful for, it’s coming back to my roots, and reminding myself of what my family has done for generations. The backbreaking work it took for them to provide and to give opportunities to the next generation so they would have a better life. And as much of a “city person” I may be, I’m always a country farm boy at heart. Humility has never felt so good. #konacoffee#kona#hawaii#home#farmboy#coffeefarm#konaboy
