The Rob Skinner Podcast: Helping You Make This Life Count

May 23, 2022

Thanks for listening!  Please support the Rob Skinner Podcast on Patreon at

In this episode, I talk to Rayola Osanya from New Jersey.  Rayola went on the mission team to Nairobi, Kenya in the late eighties and from there he went on to plant churches in Eldoret, Kenya, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Kigali, Rwanda.  He just finished a memoir of his missionary and charity work in Africa entitled: “Go in the Strength You Have:  Looking Beyond Your Weaknesses To See the Difference Your Life Can Make.”  I read the book and talk with Rayola about his experiences in Africa.     Interview



  1. How'd you become a Christian?
  2. What prompted you to write a book?
  3. What was it like for you to leave New York to return to Kenya?
  4. You mention being afraid a lot, having weaknesses, but it seems every time you were called to do something bold, you did it.  Where did that come from?  Talk a little about "Bible Algebra"
  5. You planted a church in Eldoret at 22, living in a tin-roofed shed.  Please talk about that
  6. What was it like going into Rwanda in the aftermath of the genocide there?
  7. What are you excited about as you look forward now?
  8. What advice would you give to those who want to make this life count?
