As I close this valediction I feel the heavy weight of the sudden departure of brother Nick especially when I remember that it happened through a road accident. As a brother I loved and treasured deeply in my heart it cannot be easy to accept. The thought that I will never walk, stand nor sit next to you again on this earth is hard to cut across nor to go round, it is so hard to comprehend the indisputable reality yet deep within my soul I still have the hope of the eternity in waiting. While tears soak my face and while my heart wails in trying to accept this mysterious reality of your departure I can only hold stronger onto the promise of the one who has walked and lived beyond death and our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that one day we will meet again, I have the faith that at Jesus feet we will gather together again in the heavenly celestial grandeur to celebrate the fullness of the glorious love of our Lord and to joyously partake of the full inheritance of the Kingdom eternal. For those who we still are in this temporary world we pray that our commitment to the truth and righteousness will continue to glow and grow by the grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Let the word of the Lord be the source of true hope as it is written in 2 Corinthians 5:1-6 "For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come."
It’s sad, and hard to believe that I have to say goodbye to Nick. We built high school ministry together, we spent deep nights in maseno exec meetings ,we slept through cold nights in the villages preaching Christ, we stayed together in Kisumu trying to make ends meet. 4months ago you marched in my colourful wedding after dearly supporting me, it’s hard to come to terms that we shall never do more together. But I make this promise that we shall continue in Christ, preaching him & discipling his people, what you did best. We shall miss u my brother & may the glory remain in Christ. Amen, amen, amen. ~ Maxwell Oloo
I have been in a daze after the news of Bro NICK'S untimely death. As I am mourning, I am not sure what am feeling now because I still can't come to terms with it. I choose to say, Blessed be the name of the Lord. He was passionate about God, committed, always understanding, the voice of reason and restraint in our sometimes heated Exec Meetings, very humble and trustworthy more than a friend, we shared our lives together. I wish this did not happen but He is in heaven, we shall meet in heaven bro. The generals and Psalmists will miss you RIP Nicholas Omondi ~ Rodgers Nyatome
Nicholas Omondi lived a given life to the Lord. He has finished his purpose and so has rested in his God. With heavy hearts we let him go but with joy tell the Father thank you for giving him to us for the time you gave him. We pray for his wife and child and the extended family that they will have peace. Amen. ~ Mrs Caroline Kasaya
It has been hard to accept that my brother Nicholas Omondi is gone to be with the Lord. we served in the exec together,he was a psalmist, he was in my wedding line ...He will be remembered for His soft voice, pastoral heart, love for God and others, humility,humour among many other qualities RIP BRO ..I WILL MISS YOU Let's meet in heaven ~ David Ndegerege
This young man was truly Chris-like! Even in death, he still impacts and challenges the lives of may; especially so my life. Congrats Nick for giving Jesus Christ your very best! See you in God's heaven! ~ Muhia Maina

With nick's shiny suits, we joked that he used to iron them with vaseline. How i will always remember friday nights we'd be sing hymns with our cracking voices if we were not watching a movie (24). cancelling one friday for the keshas he never missed at NOW International eldoret. So kind was my house mate that we named him merchant ship for he always remembered to carry something whenever he was in town. ~ Omia Amos
