Archbishop of Canterbury: 'I first learnt about God in Kenya'

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the principal leader of the Church of England, has visited Kiburu Boys Secondary School, a school he taught at in central Kenya.

During his visit, the archbishop said it was the Kenyan school where he first learnt about salvation and God.

He spent a year in Kiburu 46 years ago.

The archbishop is currently in the country to meet Anglican church bishops and Kenyan politicians.

So far he has met the Deputy President William Ruto, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and former Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka.

On Thursday, he visited the house he used to live in as a teacher, and recorded a video message to his followers on Twitter saying;

” I’m standing outside the house i used to live in 46 years ago when i came to Kiburu and taught some students. I taught very badly and i learned very well, because most of all i learned that Jesus Christ was my savior and that He loved me, and it was at this place i first learned that God had reached out to me as he does to everyone and offers them hope and life and salvation”
