The three-minute clip shared on X by The Nairobi Times captured the Gen Z lady preaching the gospel.

What did young preacher tell passengers?

She quoted apostle books in the bible and urged people to get saved.

"John 14:6, Jesus is the way, the truth and the light, and none goes to the Father unless through me. You can't have the Holy Spirit in you if you don't have Jesus. Don't also say that because you're a sinner, I should get saved first, and then I get saved. In Isaiah 1:18, it says come as you are. He will wash your sins. He will make you a new vessel. Even when I got saved, he washed away my sins," she said.

The beauty revealed that she had a dark past before she accepted God in her life, but thankfully, God saved her.

"Right now, I am involved in preaching the gospel and street preaching. Jesus came to my life and lit it up. If I tell you how dark my past was. I used to hate many people. I was in the darkness and am here to spread the word of God. No one knows when he will return, so get saved. Jesus is knocking at the door, waiting for you to open the door for him," she continued.
