When I was in boarding school, I used to visit a really delightful little chapel. Though I do not believe I really appreciated the experience of going to a place of worship at that time. Non-Christians had a Prayer Room, but I opted to go to the chapel. I was about 12 and sitting on benches instead of the floor, actually walking in with your shoes on was quite a novelty. I must admit I did get rather fidgety when we had to kneel. But the best part of all were the hymns.

In all these years after school, I haven’t been to church much. About a year ago, I went to a Memorial and Celebration of life for a brave young lady Sapna Shah who was a member at CITAM Church Parklands Nairobi. It was a beautiful afternoon and such a wonderful way to remember her.

There I heard the voice of an angel, Shanti. I have no idea how my hand was steady while filming as I know I was trembling. Thanks to Shanti for giving me her kind permission to share this video here:

The song Yeshua is an invocation asking Jesus “to fill my mind and heart, may my face shine with your light, may your fragrance be upon my words, my life be for your praise.” Beautiful, touching song and a golden voice, I am sure you will agree.

Is heaven a place
Or is it a sensation?
Is heaven at a distance
Or so close you can hear it?

  1. I understand your questions very much. and when you listen carefully while in church, sometimes they will be answered after you’ve studied the Bible thoroughly or prayed for a lengthy period. God bless you for your faith.


  2. Watching this video, makes me think that this is the first time that I have heard an Indian style gospel hymn. Pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.
