Otieno September 19 2011, 0 Comments
My Name is Otieno. I was Born in Kisumu Kenya. At a very early age, I witnessed poverty & hardship growing up in Kisumu.
Living in a “third world country” doesn’t afford you quite the same
luxuries of a typical American childhood. From sad memories of living in
a village with no running water & electricity to the better ones
like my 1st Christmas being enjoyed just Eating Cake & Drinking
Orange Fanta (my favorite) with my Mom & Dad. In 1988 by the grace
of God, my family was sponsored to come live in America with our father
through donations collected by a church in Seattle Washington. I was 8
years old when I told my cousins that I will see them again..
That was the last time i ever saw Kenya and my extended family.
My story is a long
journey of Faith, Trials and Tribulation, Party, Party, Party, Loss,
Depression, Redemption and a Return back to Christ. Ty & GB Clothing
was a vision I was given to start a Positive Christian based T-shirt
& Website to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At first I was
scared; Very Scared. Growing up as a Ministers son in Seattle was tough
for me as a youth. So the first chance I got to leave the watchful eyes
of the church, I took it and left to study Computer Engineering at
Arizona State University. This is just a Quick Glimpse of my story that I
was given to testify so that others who are going through what I went
through may be able to follow the path which leads back to Christ &
God's Kingdom. As you read this, I want you to know that I am taking my
steps out on faith and not letting excuses stop me from doing what I am
able to do. So Keep coming back to the Website as I write my story and
continue to Walk in Love.
- More to Come
