Kenya Summer Mission Trip

dsc_00991Seems like I have been answering this question so much lately I decided to post the information here. This past year I went on a vision trip for our church with the 410 Bridge. The goal of that trip was to come back with a village that we could partner with for the next three years. God led us to the village of Kandaria, and this summer I will be leading the first trip for our church to Kenya.

Why Kandaria?
The people in the village of Kandaria are focused and desire to reach their goal to become a self-sustaining community. They even have a plan to help villages once they get back up on their feet. The other reason is that most of the kids are orphans in this village and our church can really do a lot to make a difference. I just recently founnd out that out of a population of 6,500 people over 1,200 are orphaned.

What Will I Do?
Our team will assist the people in Kandaria through a water project, community construction, working on and in their schools and making spiritual relationships.

How Much Does it Cost?: The trip costs $3,500.00. To be honest when most people read the price they immediately compare that number to what is in their checking accounts. For most people those two numbers don’t add up. Let me be honest for over 90% of the people those numbers will never add up. The good news is that there are people in your life that would love to be a part of this trip by sponsoring you. When I look at some of the earliest missionary trips in the Bible almost every one was done by the support of others. So while I know that the economy is bad the fact is the need to do mission work does not stop during a bad economy.

A State of Emergency: to say that Kenya is in a state of emeregency would be the understatement of the year. I pray that you would consider joining me on this incredible trip. Let me warn you that once you go your life will never be the same. Let me also share with you another truth that I learned during my brief 10 days journey through Kenya.

“I need Kenya more than Kenya needs me.”

  2. Pastor Greg… I am excited about what your church is doing in Kenya. I help run a program called Ground Zero Masters Commission for High School graduates ages 18 – 25 who want more of God in their lives. We are a 9 month discipleship training program that runs like a college, but which provides hands on ministry experience and formal training. Over the course of 9 months, our students memorize over 100 scriptures, take 36 credits worth of classes from chesapeake bible college, and minister to countless teenagers up and down the east coast, as well as right here in our community. If you’ve got an teens who took part in this trip and who aren’t sure that a traditional college experience is right for them: maybe they want something more, please have them get in touch with us. For about $5200 a year, we can house them, feed them, educate them and provide them with an incredible expereince, including a week long mission trip, and a $20 / week allowance. If they stick around for three years with us, they can leave with a B.A. in biblical studies. I praise God for the good things he did on your Kenya Trip. Please let me know if we can spend 9 months helping any of your students to find God’s plan for their lives.
