As some of you may know, my wife Katherine and I will be getting ready for our missionary trip (my second and Katherine’s first trip) to Kakamega, Kenya. It has been estimated that Kenya is home to 3.6 million orphaned children, many of whom lost their parents due to HIV/AIDS epidemic. In efforts to provide care and housing for many of these children, Transforming Africa ministries have focused on building new orphanage in Kakamega, a town located in western Kenya.
After coming back home from my first trip to this region in December of 2017, not only I but my entire family felt strong God’s calling back to Kenya and the important mission that is currently underway. After much prayers and considerations, we decided to devote ourselves to the growth and advancements of Transforming Africa mission in this part of Kenya.
Following God’s calling, I decided to go back to Kakamega for a 6 months missionary trip, with my wife joining me this time around. During our stay (March – August 2018) I will be taking on a role of coordinating the construction efforts for the second phase of the orphanage complex, which will comprise of building cafeteria and quarters for visiting missionaries while finishing up tile work. Additionally, I will serve as the director of Missionary School for local Christian leaders. In order to build self sustaining skills of young girls, Katherine will teach them sewing and tailoring, which will significantly aid in development of their future financial independence. Likewise, she will also help with clothing needs of the orphanage.
The raised funds will be utilized to support us during the 6 months period. Furthermore, small part of the funds will go towards purchasing necessary construction equipment and sewing supplies.
We hope that you find it in your hearts to give, as every financial gift will bring us closer to transforming lives of many orphaned children and their communities.
