During our recent trip to the Daystar graduation, many students were wearing the t-shirt “Christ in My Heart…. That’s the Difference!”
This is what makes Daystar University unique—Daystar focuses great effort and energy on shaping every student to know Jesus Christ and make Him known as they represent Him as servant leaders in the world.
Daystar hopes to follow the example of the Apostle Paul’s words in Colossians 1:28-29: “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.”
I want to thank Rev. Steven Nduto, Daystar University Chaplain, for graciously sharing the excellent report on Christian ministries at Daystar summarized below. Please pray for each of these ministry efforts for students to grow in their faith.

One of the many pleasant surprises during my first visit to Daystar was discovering how advanced and modern the facilities are. Daystar is a world-class university ready to meet the challenges of the African continent in the 21st century.

One of my primary roles at Daystar U.S. is to support the scholarship program. During our recent Daystar trip, God opened the door for me to meet many current and former scholarship students. I was surprised at how many Daystar graduates are impacting so many areas of Kenya and Africa. There are over 18,000 Daystar alumni and 4,500 students! They are impacting many segments of communities in Africa.
Here are some alumni and students I was able to meet in person:

Before our trip, I did some reading about the historical moments and influential leaders that birthed and built Daystar University over the past 40 years. Our office storage is full of old Daystar communications about the beginning of Daystar University and the fulfillment of its mission over the years. I love to read history with all of its interesting personalities and unexpected twists which shows His story unfolding through the years. The Daystar story is a drama of God’s provision and how He used God-dependent, brilliant men and women to establish Daystar University.
