I was saddened to learn of the passing of late Bishop Benjamin Kipruto of Deliverance Church, Kericho. The late Bishop was a great inspiration to many, a mentor and shall be remembered for his great contribution and work with the church. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends at this time. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Was at the home of the late Bishop Benjamin Kipruto today to offer words of comfort and support to the family. Indeed the late Bishop made investments of godliness into the lives of many, not only members of the deliverance Church and Ministers but the community of Kericho, where he poured his life into. He pioneered the first Deliverance Church in Kericho and by the time the Lord called him home , he had inspired and nurtured 350 churches in Kericho and Bomet counties . This will not be the end of his story, because the memory and the influence of his life remains.
