Pastor Joseph Karanja was born in Nakuru, Kenya. My parents were not Christians. My father the late Mr. Karanja Wa Mirii had three wives, my mother Leah Wanjiku being the third wife. We were many children in a big family. Out of my mother’s twelve children I was the last born. We lost our mother in 2004 at the age of 102 years, leaving 4 brothers behind.
I was called in the ministry in 1989 in Africa, Kenya. In 1999 God through a prophetic ministry said I will preach to the Nations. After ministries in East Africa which ended in 2009 the Lord sent me and opened a way for my family and I to come to U.S.A. We landed in Quakertown, Pennsylvania in June 2009.
The Lord led us to start a ministry in August 2010 in Allentown P.A. We started the Rehoboth Harvest Ministry and we also have ministries in Kenya and Tanzania. God has been good to us and we have seen Him build the ministry and increase us year after year.
I am married to Mary Wambui and we have two sons and two daughters and also one son in law. Furthermore, my wife and I are blessed with three grand children.
In conclusion I’m thankful to minister together with my wife Mary as we uphold the work of the Lord in Allentown, PA.
