My name is Gladwell Musau. I am a Kenyan, married to a Pole and a mother of a lovely four year old daughter. Five years ago, I left my native country, Kenya and headed to Poland for my wedding to a wonderful and God-fearing man. Before I left my country, I felt the Lord calling me into the writing ministry. While as a stay-home mum and wife, I began writing down a memoir which in His time I pray will be published and through it many will be encouraged. While I wait, I desire through this blog to reach out to you, the readers in the hope that in some way or another, you may get encouraged, inspired and motivated to trust and love the Lord with all your heart, mind and strength. For me, it is a journey, and I invite you to accompany me along the way. HEAVEN IS OUR DESTINY. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!

  1. That is great Gladwell! Only a few have come to this realization. May God fill your dreams with realities. Wish you & your husband a life full of smiles. I would so much love to read that manuscript of yours. God bless you. Pastor David Mouti from Kenya.

  2. “ABOUT ME | RAINBOW GULF OF LOVE” Solar Shade was
    in fact a very good blog. If perhaps it owned much more pics this would certainly be quite possibly far better.
    All the best -Myrtis

  3. Oh, I so love your name, “Gladwell”! I’m happy I visited today, courtesy of Deb’s Blog. Thank you for sharing God’s love–may He richly bless you today and throughout the wonderful Christmas week!!

  4. Hello Gladwell,
    My name is Eden and I am the (sort of) editor of Idylls For the King, a new Christian literary blog/journal. I would like to invite you to have a look at the site.I don’t know if you would be interested in or write this sort of thing, but If you would ever like to submit poetry, fiction, or song lyrics you have written, please just send me an email and I will make you a contributer. Blessings,

  5. Dear Gladwell, I was reading a World Challenge Page from David Wilkerson’s Pulpit Series, if you don’t get it; it is so on target and full of scriptures and encouraging words. He was telling how when we come to God, we should come with the right view of Him, that He is loving and kind and compassionate, slow to anger and full of mercy and abundant in goodness. ‘The devil is the one who wants us to think that God os mad at us when we do wrong and is very ready to punish us, but He is a loving God keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgressions and sin. Although David made many mistakes, a committed sins He trully knew the Lord and held on to the loving promise and would not let go that…”although my house be not so with God; yet He hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation and all m desire, although He make it not to grow 2Sam 23:5 He was standing on God’s word to him and was sure He would bring it about.

    It made me think of the verse in Zec. being a prisoner of hope. I am as well, my youngest of 4 children, who has always loved the Lord has even gone on a mission trip to Kenya the summer before he went away to college is now a prodigal, living with a girl. It makes my heart sad and I know hurts God more, I just keep praying and I will not stop. I know the devil has tried to sidetrack him but God has plans for my son, to be a mighty man of God. I remain a prisoner of hope, till it comes to fruition. God bless you for your site, I just typed in prisoner of hope and your site came up. Thank you for sharing your hope and your feelings. God bless you! Love, your sister in Christ, Deborah

    • Deborah,

      It has taken awhile for me to reply but I am here finally. I can imagine the heartache and heartbreak a mother goes through to see their child walk away from their upbringing. But on the other hand, a parent’s role can only go that far…and the rest is to leave the child into God’s every loving care and trust He who is faithful ! I stand with you…as you hold on in faith. YES, its worth it to be a prisoner of hope. My heart and prayers are with you….and HIM!!!

      Love and prayers,

  7. I found your blog because of your comment on Elizabeth Laryn’s blog, and am looking forward to reading more of what God has to write through you! It has been such a blessing to me to find others who love the Lord as I do in the blogging world. I had no idea before I started blogging that there were so many. I have added you to my blogroll so that I can easily get back here when I have time to read more. God bless you.

    • Hallo Linda. Thank you for stopping by. Yes…its a blessing to find people who love the Lord and want to share their experiences with other believers and seekers alike through the Internet media. I haven’t been here for long…but I thank God for each individual that I have met..via screen through my writings or theirs and many comments that come along each day. I feel honored to be on your blogroll and I say thank you. Of course, I hope to get to know your better too.

      May His blessings and goodness rest on you…always,


  8. Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comment back to me. You are a wonderful inspiration. Thank you for allowing God to do His work through you. God Bless you, too!

      Blessings and hugs,


  10. God bless you as you write and as you share with us on your blog.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. So good to read your blog and get to know you.

    Blessings on your journey,
    ~ Denise

  11. Hello. I found you on Shirley Buxton’s blog (sweet 😉 ). I am adding you to my blogroll because I like you even though I don’t know you. There’s something about you that makes me feel kindred to you. I’ll be visiting you often. God bless you!

    • Thank you, Tena. I feel honored to be on your blogroll, but most importantly that I have gained a new eternal friend and that’s what matters! I will be checking on you too. Have a blessed weekend!


  12. Gladwell,

    Thank you for your comments on my blog…I was so happy to read your ‘About Me’ part..I thank God for the vision He has given you and pray that one day He will fulfill the desires of your heart.

    I never knew I could write until I had to go through a terrible loss in my life…a misscarriage..and I believe that God turned something bad in my life..to be the most beautiful one….Today, I write to encourage people going through a wilderness expereince. Hitherto He has helped me wonderfully. I also wish to publish a book in His perfect time.

    I’m planning to add few blogs that I follow in my blogroll…Will surely add yours..God Bless.

    Rani John

    • Thank you, Rani. When I read your post today, I realized in some way, we have been going through the same kind of wilderness…no, mine is not a miscarriage but its a wilderness all the same. I will put up your blog on mine too. And yes, in His time…your book will be BORN!



  13. Hi Gladwell, I’m glad you stopped by my blog and left a comment. Following your link back to this blog was a good thing, and I’ve added Rainbow Gulf of Love to my links on my own page.

    It’s good to “meet” you and I look forward to what you’ll post here in the days ahead.


    • Thank you Janet. I read your ‘about me’ and I know in His time…your unpublished works will come to light. I am honored to be on your blogroll. Thank you and I too will fbe ollowing yours too.



  14. Thanks for your comment Gladwell. I will respond shortly. Hope you’re having a lovely day.

    Smile for the day is new.

    Love Gina

  15. Hello Gladwell,

    I appreciate your encouraging comments on my blog. My hope, like yours, is to encourage others as they seek after God. Every time I discover someone is blessed through my writing, I am blessed. How neat to meet someone with similar heart from the other side of the world. May your writings touch many and “lead many to righteousness” (Daniel 12:3). – Jason

    • Thank you, Jason. That’s what the Lord has called us for…to be the light shining in the darkness be it through our words or actions. I also appreciate your stopping by here. I will keep track of your blog and hope to be encouraged and inspired to follow Him and service others. God bless you.


  16. Hi Gladwell, thank you for your wonderful encouragement and comments on my blog. I read a few of your articles which I will comment on over the next few days and share my thoughts and insights with you; but seeing your about me page has inspired me to write to you and I will try to write an about me page with my own testimony to share with you and others. I am very moved by your “following” your husband and allowing God to lead you in a big decision to move from Kenya to Poland. I have not travelled much in my life, but I have always wanted to go to Uganda, your neighbour country. I pray that your ministry through your own testimony may reach many lives. In Christ’s love, Gina xx

    • Thank you so much, Gina for your time and also your kind words too. I pray that God will open a door for you to travel to Uganda. I haven’t been there but I know the Ugandan people are very homely and welcoming. I look forward to read about your testimony on your blog. All the best and have a peaceful weekend.

      Blessings and hugs,


  17. Yes NEGST! What a small world 🙂 This is my story of Kenya and NEGST – I was all set to go and then I was re-directed somewhat…

    Here are all the stories – the first ones are as I was still working through things, the very last one is the entire story – from the initial call to staying here in the states 🙂





  18. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! You are a blessing 🙂 I almost finished my degree at Nairobi Evangelical, and have several friends who are active in Kenya! Thanks for sharing your heart on your blog. God bless you,

  19. Very glad you stopped by my BLOG. I really appreciate yours as well. Still stop by later and read more.


  20. Thank you for sharing what Jesus has laid on your heart. I look forward to ‘getting to know you’ more through your thoughts and writing.
    God Bless, Mike

  21. Gladwell, thank you so much for stopping by my blog and saying hello! I appreciate so much that you took time to read my testimony and comment. I love connecting with other sisters in Christ who have a passion to serve him and others through the encouragement of words. I look forward to journeying with you.

  22. Your life and choices are so interesting! I pray that I may learn and grow in the Lord from your blog–and that we may become friends across this internet ocean!

    Be assured, the primary intent you desire for your blog–that [readers may be] “encouraged, inspired and motivated to trust and love the Lord with all your heart, mind and strength”–is truly met! YOU are an encouragement!

    Blessings! Linda

  23. wow what a story, i love your heart for writing and sharing god’s truth and love.

    my sister lives in Uganda so close to your home country…i was just there visiting, it’s a beautiful part of Africa.

    thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.


  24. Actually, it was your “About Me” partial testimony that made me wonder about your full testimony. How many Kenyans, especially women, move from Kenya to Poland? Probably not many. So, I’d guess the Lord made some changes in you before you were ready to move.

    • Hi Larry. Yes, you are right. The Lord did a work in me before He moved me to Poland. In fact, the whole story is in my memoir which I hope will get published someday. Meanwhile, I will try to update the ABOUT ME with a few more details. Otherwise, tons of blessings to you and your family. God bless.

  25. I too started writing about 5 years ago in the form of journaling. Writing has become a passion. It has lead to one book and I am now working on another. It is my hope, as with you, that what I write might help and encourage others.
    Thanks stopping by my sight.

    • Hi Mike. Thank you for stopping by and sending a note. God is faithful…and as we keep our hearts set on Him…our hands will flow with WORDS FROM HIS HEART. Keep the journal going…and I pray your books will encourage many. God bless!

  26. Hi Gladwell! I’m FINALLY getting by to see you. I’ve noticed you on my blog and then so appreciated your comment today over on the Marriage Channel of Exemplify. You were very kind.

    WoW!! I have a Kenya connection, too!

    My daughter and her family are missionaries to Kenya to the Maasai. They are out in Sekenani near the game reserve. I’ve been there twice now to see them. We’ve also visited friends in Nairobi.

    I will enjoy visiting your blog and reading your posts very soon.

    Have a blessed week!

    • Hi Marsha. That’s kind of you. And I am excited about the news about your daughter and family being missionaries in Kenya. What a pleasant surprise! In fact, I grew up in Nairobi and only moved away from there five years before I came to Poland for my wedding. God bless and have a great week too.

  27. Hi Gladwell..you should know how much i am in love with your blog!! And especialy what you have 4the singles out there,i included, may God abudantly bles u n increase your wisdom 2impact the world! Amen

    • Hi Florence. I am so glad that you find my blog posts a blessing for you. Its my prayer and hope that God will use me to minister to you and others in ways that only He can see fit. Its all for HIS GLORY. God bless and hold up…THE LORD IS NEVER LATE!!!
