Born into obscurity, poverty, and indifference in the 1960s in the heart of the African wilderness, Kisemei Kupe experienced neglect, hunger, loneliness, misdirection, abuse, and danger to a degree that very few in our Western culture could imagine. Reaching out for help, he devoted himself to Islam only to find himself in acute despair and hopelessness. Yet in the midst of these crushing circumstances, Kisemei experienced a dramatic encounter with the vision of a man he had never met and whose name he didn’t know. It was an encounter so genuine and a metamorphosis so drastic that it would set in motion a series of events that would lead him to face certain death for his actions. He was once a warrior for his village, but now a new warrior had emerged. This is a story that many of us need to hear today—a story that transcends the jury of society, an abiding story of truth and hope for us all.
It’s often challenging for people to understand what true suffering is if you are surrounded by the latest of modern conveniences where your every wish is merely a click away. However, when Clark Wiginton heard the life story of a man who grew up near Kilimanjaro, he knew it needed to be shared with others.
That story comes to life in Warrior Reborn, which details Kisemei Kupe’s path filled with sorrow and despair. A childhood filled with neglect and starvation is only part of his story.
As someone committed to the ways of the Maasai warriors, he finds himself drawn to a higher power. Although he tries Islam, he finds hope through a relationship with God. Stuck between his loyalty to his heritage and the Christian faith, Kisemei must face the wrath of his tribe.
His trials and tribulations eventually bear fruit, leading Kisemei to America, where he meets the author and shares his powerful testimony.
Warrior Reborn tells the story of a courageous man who makes a choice that later unlocks a future full of possibilities.
Clark Wiginton is a physician, entrepreneur, and writer who lives in west central Texas with his wife, Stephanie, and their five children. He is a personal friend of the subject of this book.
