A very zealous soul-winning young preacher from Nairobi County ventured out on Labour Day to preach to workers about the day of resurrection. He came upon a potato farmer at Molo in Nakuru County working in his farm.

Being concerned about the farmer’s soul the preacher asked the man, “Are you labouring this Labour Day in the vineyard of the Lord my good man?”

Not even looking at the preacher and continuing his work the farmer replied, “No, these are potatoes.”

“You don’t understand,” said the preacher. “Are you a Christian?”

With the same disinterest as his previous answer the farmer said, “Nope my name is Isaya. You must be looking for Christian Ruto. He lives a kilometer west of here in a place called Mau Summit.”

The young determined preacher tried again asking the farmer, “Are you lost?”

“No! I’ve lived here all my life,” answered the farmer.

“Are you prepared for the resurrection?” the frustrated preacher asked.

This caught the farmer’s attention and he asked, “When is it gonna be?”

Thinking he had accomplished something the young preacher replied, “It could be today, tomorrow, or the next day.”

Taking a handkerchief from his back pocket and wiping his brow, the farmer remarked, “Well, don’t mention it to my wife. She doesn’t get out much and she will want to go all three days.”
