Jubilee Christian Church of Dallas-One Year Anniversary

Posted by Administrator on June 3, 2010

Pastored by Dennis & Nish, Jubilee Christian Church of Dallas is part of Jubilee Christian Churches worldwide led by Bishop Allan & Cathy Kiuna.

At JCC we teach you faith so you can fight for your destiny. We equip you to be the best that you can be. Yes, God is still in the saving and healing business and has your best interests at heart. Breakthrough is possible and your persistence in faith will break that resistance!

It is our mandate to speak to the “sleeping giants” of the city who like Gideon were created for significance and yet they live in fear. When the angel of the Lord appeared to him, Gideon was “threshing wheat at a winepress to keep it from the Midianites” (NIV). Threshing was always done at the threshing floor but for fear of these vicious enemies, Gideon had to secretly thresh at the winepress. Vs. 12 of Judges 6 says “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour”. The NIV translation says “Mighty warrior”. Gideon must have been startled that someone would call him a warrior yet he was hiding for fear. His very name means “one who cuts down”. See, Gideon was anointed to “cut down” the enemies of Israel and save a generation. Within him was trapped a warrior waiting to manifest.

Struggles and circumstances have caused many to cower and hide from destiny. Many a dreams have been shuttered and visions broken. We are here to encourage you to rise and become what God intended you to be. Yes, you may have given up but God still calls you a “Mighty Warrior”. “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.” Isaiah 60:1

Obama: I will visit Kenya before my term expires

Posted by Administrator on June 3, 2010

By Rachel Nakitare

US President Barack Obama has urged Kenyans to take advantage of the constitutional review process to ensure sound governance and robust institutions in the country.

In the first ever exclusive interview with KBC the US President said Kenya has immense potential to grow into an African powerhouse but blamed corruption and bad politics for the wanting state of affairs in the country.

President Obama also talked of his plans to visit Kenya and the scheduled visit by vice president Joe Biden next week.

President Obama urged Kenyans to participate in the referendum scheduled for August 4 calling it a “singular opportunity to put the government of Kenya on solid footing beyond ethnicity violence, corruption and towards economic prosperity”.

He hailed the leadership of President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga in having brought the review process this far and urged Kenyans to”take advantage of the moment”.

The U.S president was speaking to KBC’s Rachael Nakitare in an exclusive Oval Office interview on June 1st.

He said the new constitution could help establish the rule of law, protect human rights and reduce the kind of ethnic violence that erupted throughout the country in 2008 following the disputed results of the 2007 general elections.

“Regardless of whether they vote Yes or No I just want to make sure that they participate,” President Obama told Nakitare.

“I don’t think it’s any secret…to people I’ve talked to, including my family members, that there’s been frustration over the years, about the constant corruption that is preventing economic development,” President Obama said.

“I think people are frustrated about the continuing ethnic rivalries that exist in Kenya, when we all know a country only succeeds when it pulls together. People are frustrated when it comes to the rule of law, or how the police operate, which is not as transparent as it should be. This is an opportunity to fix many of these things,” he added.

Obama said he was sending his top emissary, Vice President Joe Biden to Kenya to convey his support for the constitutional process.

Biden is scheduled to visit Kenya the week of June 7, when he will meet with key leaders in Kenya, including Kenyan President Kibaki and Kenyan Prime Minister Odinga.

Obama whose father was a Kenyan has documented his visit to the East African country where he met his relatives in his memoirs, Dreams from my Father.

In her 12-minute interview, Nakitare also questioned the President about U.S. immigration policy, the oil spill and why the United States has not ratified the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women.

On the question of whether the President would be visiting Kenya once they enact a new constitution, Obama promised that he would visit Kenya “before my service as President is complete”.

Kenyan Man Charged With Murder In Stabbing Death

DANVILLE – One day before allegedly murdering the mother of his small son, Jackson Mwangi posted a message on his Facebook page hinting at trouble in his life.

“Only God can help me,” he wrote.

The next day, authorities say the 28-year-old Manchester man repeatedly stabbed Randi Huntley and may have hit her with a hammer and ran her over with a car as the couple’s 4-year-old son watched.

For the second time in two years, authorities are investigating a brutal killing in town.

In June 2008, Paul McDonald bludgeoned his Danville landlord with a hammer and was convicted of first-degree murder earlier this year.

“You hear about this in cities, not in small towns,” said Amanda Faia, 20, who grew up next door in Sandown and works at Mayo’s Market, the only convenience store in Danville.

Mwangi, of 447 Cartier St., Manchester, was arraigned in Exeter District Court yesterday on a first-degree murder charge and ordered held without bail. He appeared only briefly and said nothing before being led from court and returned to Rockingham County Jail.

Mwangi was arrested by New Hampshire State Police Tuesday, shortly after he allegedly attacked Huntley, 25, at her home at 67B Cobbler’s Ridge Road. He had lived there until a couple of months ago when he moved out.

Assistant Attorney General Peter Hinckley said he wasn’t sure of the relationship between Huntley and Mwangi most recently, but they had been together for some time.

Police responded to the Cobbler’s Ridge Road address just before 4 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a hit-and-run accident. Officers arrived and found Huntley, who had apparently been stabbed, authorities said.

She was rushed to Parkland Medical Center in Derry where she died.

An autopsy was scheduled to be performed yesterday; the results were not yet available.

Shortly after the attack, a bulletin was issued urging police to look for a 1999 Infiniti. By about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, dispatchers began receiving reports of a man trying to flag down motorists while parked along Route 101 east near Exit 9 in Exeter. When state and local police arrived they realized that it was Mwangi, authorities said. Police cruisers swarmed the car and Mwangi was arrested. A police dog was also brought in to search for evidence along the highway.

Hinckley said he wouldn’t speculate on why Mwangi was trying to get the attention of passing motorists.

As investigators searched for answers yesterday, Huntley’s family remembered the good times they shared.

“Every time I saw her she was smiling and she was happy. She would make you laugh and she could find the humor in everything,” said Huntley’s aunt, Darlene Zimmermann, who is the sister of Huntley’s father, Christopher.

Huntley was described as a loving mother who held two jobs and worked hard. She worked full-time at East Coast Lumber in Hampstead and had a second job at a Dollar Tree store.

The middle child of three girls, Huntley grew up in Raymond and graduated from Raymond High School in 2003. She earned a bachelor’s degree in child psychology from Hesser College and was looking forward to finding a job in her field.

Photographs posted on her Facebook page show a mother who adored her boy; she often referred to him as “lil man.”

Miles away in Manchester, a neighbor of Mwangi expressed shock when told about his arrest.

“Honestly, he seemed like a hard-working, easy-going, laid-back kind of guy,” said the woman, who asked her name not be used. She lived upstairs from Mwangi. Like him, she was new to the neighborhood. Her daughter quickly befriended Mwangi’s son, who visited on the weekends.

Mwangi was proud of his boy but didn’t speak much about himself, she said. He did lament the breakup with the boy’s mother, the neighbor said.

“He couldn’t believe it turned out like that. He missed her a lot,” she said. On Monday, Mwangi borrowed her telephone to call the boy’s mother. He complained about “baby Mama drama,” she said.

Hinckley said Mwangi appears to be a Kenyan born U.S. citizen.

Details surrounding the investigation into Huntley’s death are contained in an affidavit sealed by the court at the prosecutor’s request. Search and arrest warrants were sealed as well.

Hinckley said the documents were sealed because the investigation is ongoing.

“It’s not a closed investigation after an arrest is made,” he said.

With the area around Huntley’s residence still cordoned off yesterday and a truck from Major Crime Unit and other police vehicles parked out front, neighbors said they were too upset to talk.

“All I can think about is the family,” one woman said as she arrived home.
