  • Simon & Gladys Mungai

    Simon Maina Mungai and his wife Gladys were born in Kenya, Africa. Simon, his mother and siblings lived on their uncle’s farm while his dad tried to eke out a living in town. When his aunt, his mother and he (at age 12) gave their lives to the Lord Jesus, his uncle beat and tormented them greatly for their faith. Shortly after Simon came to the USA, his uncle surrendered his life to the Lord. Gladys, like uncle Gideon, used to hate Christians with a passion, swearing she would never “get saved!" Her mother, older sister and brother, and the whole Christian Union in her high school prayed relentlessly for this renegade. The grace of God redeemed her in her senior year. The Maina family joined Morning Star Church in 1990. In 1995, Gladys was called into full time ministry. Simon worked with her while working in Indianapolis to support the family. He recently retired and is busier with the church than ever. "We are blessed for the teamwork and loving fellowship of the saints at Morning Star, few as they are. They face every obstacle to keep the ministry working."
