Get Involved


From the desk of the CEO:

To all our wonderful partners, friends, students, and those who wish to come and visit us in Kenya in 2021. It has been a year since COVID became a pandemic, and there is still much uncertainty about the virus, testing, and treatment.

Rev. Linda and our Board of Directors have discussed when we would be able to re-open the ministry for volunteers. We have determined that for the foreseeable future, will not be hosting volunteers, teams, or students.

We do look forward to 2022 when we believe things will have settled down and we can receive guest. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support and prayers.
