Sept. 21, 2017: Our first team is on the ground in Houston, TX! They are helping families remove the flood damage from their homes and sharing the gospel with those around them! We will be sending out 6 more teams, please continue to pray for all involved!
In September 2017 we sent a team back to Rakwaro, Kenya. They put in new classrooms, a bathroom, and cooktops in the school. They handed out toothbrushes, and helped feed the children breakfast and lunch at the school. The children get the same thing to eat everyday but are happy to eat it! Many of them don’t get dinner at home so school is their only chance to eat for the day. For $35 a month you can sponsor a child in the Rakwaro Village. For more info. Click on the child sponsorship link on our homepage!
Rakwaro, Kenya is a village with 70 families. We visited the village in January 2017 and started the well drilling, added two classrooms, a kitchen, and an office to the small school we started. Next we will be working on irrigation, crops and fish ponds. There are 157 children in the village and we would love to get a sponsor for each one of them. The cost is only $35 a month. Each sponsored child will get at least one nutritional meal a day, proper schooling, and learn about the good news of Jesus. Your monthly sponsorship also supports the entire Rakwaro village. Our vision is that the village will stand strong for generations to come!
Also in January 2017 we had a team visit Nairobi and Kiwawa Kenya. In Nairobi we visited the slums and ministered to the children. In Kiwawa we repaired a well, held a pastors training conference, and completed a housing project!
In February 2017 a team traveled to Guadalajara, Mexico to visit an orphanage. A few in this group have been to Guadalajara several times and have watched the children grow up! The team got to spend time with children and even got to take them to a buffet restaurant (a luxury in their neighborhood), and swimming at a local hotel. The children look forward to this visit every year and have really formed a special bond with the volunteers!
The Baja, Mexico team completed 2 houses during their trip in March 2017! More trips coming up, for more information please visit the Service Calendar link on the top of the website.
