Celebrated American preacher Benny Hinn has revealed details of his meeting with Kenya’s First Lady Racheal Ruto.
While conducting one of his preachings, Pastor Hinn said that Mrs Ruto flew to Orlando, Florida, together with her team, to ask him to attend a crusade in Nairobi.
The televangelist revealed that the First Lady told him the crusade would not only be nationwide but also fully sponsored by the government of Kenya.
“Something amazing happened. The First Lady of Kenya flew from Nairobi with her team, just for one reason; to ask me to come back to Nairobi for a nationwide government-sponsored crusade,” Hinn said.
The preacher said it took him by surprise since he had never experienced a First Lady inviting him for a government-sponsored crusade.
“The only time I think we’ve ever had that was in Papua New Guinea,” he added.
Hinn said Ruto was accompanied by Ugandan preacher Robert Kayanja, as they wanted the crusades to be jointly held in Kenya and Uganda.
“They want to do two crusades for each country, I said, OK, Lord, you still have more time for me,” he further said.
The First Lady is known to be religious and hosts prayer sessions at State House and other areas across the country to pray for drought, the country and even her husband. The Rutos are not shy of publicly professing their Christian faith and it was one of the reasons many were drawn to them and voted him into office in 2022.
