Praise God!


I speak on behalf of the Mother’s Union ACK St. Lukes Church, Kenyatta.

Charity Mwangi was a strong, committed and very active member of our Mothers Union. She was a woman of faith, a true servant of God who loved God with a passion. She served God wholeheartedly with sincerity and selflessness.

She was our mum, big sister, mentor, intercessor, prayer warrior, our counsellor always having a word of encouragement. She was our friend, confidant, teacher, advisor and good listener.

Charity was generous. She opened her home to all of us anytime. Her hospitality was amazing. She welcomed us with lots of food, especially her special chicken and mukimo.
She made us feel appreciated, loved and valued. She spoke the truth, corrected us with love, accepted us the way we are, bore our burdens and prayed for us. She taught us to persevere and trust God in difficult situations.

Charity always confessed about the faithfulness of God and goodness to her. It was like a greeting to her. Never complaining. She demonstrated to us how to love our families by the way she loved and cared for her own family.

Charity fulfilled the mission in Titus 2:3 that says the older women will train and teach the younger women to live a Godly life

To the family of Charity, may God watch over you and take care of you. And As your mum would have said May God Father of all Comfort, comfort you and give you strength. 2 Corinthians 1:3.

Indeed she has left a great Godly legacy. Our prayer for you, family of Charity, is that God may bless you abundantly to a thousand generations.

God Bless You.

Wangari, Njeri and Njoki,

Your mother was an amazing person and will be sorely missed.
May The Lord give you comfort, peace, and love. Stick together. Shalom.

“For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” – Romans 14:7,8

Paula, Njeri and Njoki with your respective families, may God condole and comfort you with His amazing grace. It's hard to come to terms with this huge challenge, but as your precious mum would encourage you, there is hope in Jesus. She was very vibrant, ever smiling, and generally kind which are rich virtues you have certainly picked from her. I have come across friends who knew both of them with dad, they all have a rich testimony regarding their unmatched generosity of any resources God entrusted them with. For the days ahead and future, I leave you with these immortal words;

`Trust in the Lord with all your hearts and lean not in your own understanding,
In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will guard straight your paths - Proverbs 3:5-6'.

A few years, as we stood at Langata cemetery to bury Baba Mumu, I watched Mum Cee and marveled at her strength; even as we covered Baba Mumu with dust, she never cried. I couldn't help but walk to her and ask, "Mum Cee, really, not a tear. Cry now when you have us around with you." She looked me in the eye and gently said to me, "Baba Mumu never made me cry while he lived. Secondly, he has gone to meet Jesus, that am sure of. So, why should I cry?" I stood alongside her and pondered to myself, what a blessed assurance! What a beautiful testimony of what marriage life should be. Fast forward to Paula's lounge and am visiting Paula whose recovering. I hug Mum Cee and remark at the floral musky perfume she is wearing! That is a good one Mum Cee. And she says, " Just like me", with a smile that reached her eyes. Mum Cee remains a beautiful fragrance in our lives. She was deeply intimate with the Lord Jesus. The sun has set for her, and she is now free, free at Jesus feet. And as people you ( - Paula, Njeri, Njoki) love are in Heaven, there will always be a little bit of Heaven in your hearts and homes, until you join Dad, Mumu and Mum Cee in the new Jerusalem. Whether to live or die... in Christ alone our hope is found.

'Navy blue man' was the nickname mathee gave me.It was another way of showing affection,when she really liked you,she gave you name.She had a smile that could embrace the whole neighbourhood and she could also be a very strick disciplinarian.She had such a great sense of humour that rested a smile on your face and laughter to accompany it.She had a faith firmly rooted in God and what an example she has left-She didn't teach kindness,she lived it. She didn't teach love,she was it. She was consistent in putting
the concern for others above herself. We will greatly miss her.

Charity Mwangi to us was like a mother.

Personally, I knew her together with her late husband over 10 years ago.

She was a woman of great courage. Her generosity transcended far and wide.

Her unwavering faith in God was unquestionable.

Many times she would call us on phone and spend quite some time encouraging and giving a testimony or two of how faithful God is.

A woman of great virtue to say the least.

To her siblings, you have had a powerful role model.

May God's peace and comfort be with her family, relatives and friends.

Cucu had an amazing sense of humor and would always put a smile on my face. Before she got covid-19 she would come and visit us and bring us lots of banana’s, maize, yogurt and potatoes. She was caring and fearless she never was afraid of any obstacle that was through to her. She always made me happy and confident of myself. When we was not able to visit, she would always call me and ask what we needed. I remember it was a hard time for me I was about to do a major exam she came to visit as and she calmed me down and she prayed for me. I will miss you so much cucu and we love you!

We are reminded during this time that Jesus died and rose agin so that we might LIVE eternally with Him. Mum is alive, not in body but in a more beautiful state, in SPIRIT and that is our reason to smile through the pain. Time heals to reveal warm fond earthy memories, but our spirits rejoice for her place is now with our Lord.

Words fail me. I cant believe I will not see you again on this earth but I rejoice because we shall be reunited in heaven.
I first truly understood gratefulness when I interacted with you.You always carried yourself with so much grace,so much humility, so much kindness and your goodness at heart was humbling yo many.
You have loved me without reservation and embraced me as your very own daughter and by extension, a member of your family. Thank you for being a loving mum, a great encourager and for the many pieces of advice you shared with me in our interactions. I will forever remember your many words of advise.
I did not know the last phone call we had recently was going to be our last.I am broken to say the least. For me it is not goodbye, I know that I will see you again.
I will miss you dearly. Rest well mum, till we meet again.

Mom, it's so hard to believe that you are gone and I will never receive your lovely phone calls again. It is like you had scheduled a monthly call. Your words were filled with love and wisdom, you were so peaceful and filled with God's love in every word that you uttered. You always reminded us of what the word of God says in regard to any issue in life. You treated many of us as if we were your own despite the fact that you had your own biological children. You always encouraged me to visit you and every reason to convince me that there is a nice dress that will perfectly fit me well in the just arrived new stock. Little did I realize that that was a way of showing your love. I loved you right back Mom and thats why it's difficult to say bye. May you rest in eternal peace and may God comfort all your family members and friends. We can only continue with God's work that you loved doing and pray that we will continue emulating your character. When I write a memoir, you will occupy a chapter of true love. We loved you but God did love you more.

Our dear mum Charity,
How can I describe you, loving, prayer warrior, counselor,joyful,clean hearted,passionate in everything you did, committed to God's work, always outstretching yourself to help others those you knew and those you didn't know,.
I am lost for words.You invested in God's kingdom and I do believe you'll continue with the same ministry in heaven.
..l know you are with the saints and angels in heaven rejoicing and praying for us.
May God shield your family with the same love and console and give them peace.
I'll miss your calls and the address namesake.
Shine on your way dear friend till we meet again.

Mama Mumu, it is hard to believe and accept that you are no more.
Those Special Memories of you will always bring a smile, if only I could have you back,
for just a little while,
Then we could sit ,talk and laugh again,
Just like we used to do.
You meant so much to me and you always will.
The fact that you're no longer here,will cause me pain,
But you're forever in my Heart.
God knows why He took you from us.
And as such we cannot question him.
Go well Charity until we meet Again.

I pay tribute to a dear Sister Charity, Mama Mumu, my KANYANYA, who I met in the '80s.
We used to fellowship at ACK St Barnabas Church, but little did I know that God had a better plan to extend our families. In 2003 our son Alex Nyaga was blessed to have Paula's hand in marriage.

Sooner than later, we were sisters, friends & prayer partners for our families. Mama Mumu has been of great support to many in various areas of need. I remember her dedicated support, especially to me during my lowest moments & times of need. A prayer warrior and selfless confidant. Together, bonded by our Christian faith, families & prayer, we have many memorable moments shared that we shall treasure. I do not doubt that her contagious smile, influence & guidance shall not depart from our hearts.

A Golden heart stopped beating, and hard-working hands have rested.
Sleep my Sister sleep.

Thank you Mum for always keeping your door open. A visit to your house was akin to going to Mombasa: easy to get in, but very complicated to get out!

You had a revolving kitchen and there was always a round meal available for anyone (and there were many) who popped by. You used to say that the sound of a spoon clinking on a plate was the sign of an empty plate and that was a big NO in your house.

I shall always cherish the long lunches that would extend to high teas, and frequently onto late suppers. Often your guests included 3 to 4 generations at a time and we would all usually be involved in several conversations at the same time.

You had a knack for connecting with everyone individually. You were a good listener and you always had the word for every season.

I shall forever miss your generosity and wise counsel.

I am comforted to know that you have gone to a better place. Give a huge hug to my friend, your beloved Baba Mumu, and a big ngota to Mumu.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Psalms 116:15
