We will be returning to Kenya to the Massai Mara Reserve again this summer! This trip is always a memorable experience for everyone who makes the trip. This trip would be your chance to meet and help people from a completely different culture, bond with fellow missionaries, be close enough to see the leopard’s spots, and enjoy the scenic views of the African savanna. We look forward to you joining us in June for this adventure!
Mission Trip to Kenya, June 22 - July 3, 2016
Is this trip right for me?
If you aren't yet sure if this mission trip is for you, please take a moment and read a story written by someone who has experienced this trip. From the young to old, most people, upon their return, give a glowing account of meeting new people, experiencing an entirely new world, and sharing God moments together with their new-found friends. These are all incredible things that can come from a mission trip.
Working in the Clinic
A number of people who went on this past mission trip had the chance to work with the neonatal unit or with children at their school. "We worked in the medical clinic; some members were painting, while others treated patients," said Stephanie Loe, "we set up make-shift clinics (bush clinics) in different communities every day." There was always a job for people to do, whether it was simply talking or playing with the different patients or going in and operating, giving infant vaccinations, teaching a Woman's Health and Prenatal Education course, or even delivering newborn babies. And it's quite an experience doing work outside of the U.S. Not working with standard tools, not always working in an operating room, sometimes they didn't even have a roof over their heads. "We worked overnight shifts to help nurture twin preemie babies which were born under a tree," stated Loe, reminiscing her time on the mission trip.
Talking about her time in the clinic helping new mothers give birth, Kim Ilio said, "it was such a beautiful experience for all the girls to see this done for the first time and the mother allowing each of us to hold her newborn." Thinking back on her time, she knows it was worth it, "though we were able to help the clinic and children as much as we did in our trip, I still have the urge to help more. I plan on coming back one day with more time and supplies for them. The whole experience gave me a new outlook on how I take things for granted and live in a life of luxurious when the Massai live happy with the basics. I'm so thankful God gave me this opportunity and can't wait to help more."

About the Mission Trip
The purpose of this trip is primarily to create cross-cultural relationships. Our hope is to provide opportunities for relationship building through which Christ can be shared. To facilitate this we will be working on 3 projects. Our projects will include: working on a secondary school, holding medical clinics and running a vbs (if our group has leaders).
