- Carey Joy, a US missionary, met the love of her life, Albert Wanyonyi, in Bungoma, western Kenya, a few years ago
- Wanyonyi, a boda boda rider, could not converse in English but learnt the language so he could confess his love for Carey
- The two tied the knot in late 2018, a few months after they met, and are blessed with two adorable children
Carey Joy, the mzungu missionary married to a Bungoma man, has already adapted to the local life and culture.
Joy met her prince charming Albert Wanyonyi in Bungoma, where she had gone to spread the word of God.
In previous interviews, Wanyonyi, a Class Two dropout, said he fell in love with the US missionary, although language barrier was their main challenge. He only spoke his native Bukusu language and Swahili.

“He did not speak English at the time we met but God helped him learn and we were able to converse,” Carey said.
Wanyonyi’s wife said after meeting the first time, she knew he was the man God had kept for her and admired how hardworking he was, so she let her guard down and allowed herself to fall in love.
Carey has penned a sweet message to her secondborn child on his second birthday, describing him as a creative kid.
“Two years ago today my firstborn Zechariah came into the world. He is fiercely independent and very creative. He loves animals of all kinds and is very good with them. He is sweet and empathetic and brings so much joy to my heart. Happy second birthday little man,” she wrote.

Kenyan men have been criticised several times for being unromantic, stingy, and not caring, but these men are a treasure for our mzungu sisters from developed countries.
Most Kenyan women prefer West African men, especially Nigerians, to their own.
Some of the Kenyan men in biracial marriages include Albert Wanyonyi, DJ Moz, Jeff Koinange, actor Ninja, Mukhisa Kituyi and the late Ken Okoth.
