Share International grew out of the vision and inspiration of Sammy and Mary Murimi (pictured on left), Christians of Kenyan nationality. God has blessed Sammy and Mary with four children, David, Justus, Neema, and Baraka; two daughters-in-law, Stephanie and Brandy; and five grandsons – Daniel, Ezekiel, Bradyn, Moses, and Beaux.

In spring of 1978, Sammy attended a Missions Convention at the headquarters of Worldwide Evangelization Crusade’s (WEC) in Bulstrode (near London) where “Brother Andrew” (Andrew van der Bijl) was the speaker. It was at that convention that Sammy surrendered his life to the call of Missions, with no idea where that would lead.

In the summer of 1978, Sammy traveled to Birmingham, England, to visit a friend. As he watched a TV documentary by BBC on the Turkana people of Kenya, he sensed the nudge from the Lord calling him to reach the Turkana people with the Gospel.

On January 18, 1989, while studying Missions at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Illinois, the words “share the gospel… (and) our lives” by Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 made a strong impression on Sammy. It was at that moment that Share International was born.
