Kenya Team II

Short Term Missions
Team 2
Kenya Report 2007


I am delighted to report to you the wonderful things that God did through the short term team that traveled to Nairobi Kenya from Houston. Thanks be to God for the awesome leadership of Windsor Village UMC, its staff, Senior Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell and Pastor Velosia Kibe who is instrumental in spearheading this wonderful work to build Gods Kingdom in Kenya and around the world.

TEAM:
Team 2 was comprised of 3 team members. Although we were small in number we were mighty in strength. When the team from WVUMC arrived in Kenya we all were excited to be in Africa. The team consisted of Darryl Johnson, Henry Wallace and Rebecca Forun. Darryl and Rebecca were blessed to have been a part of PIM during the June 2006 trip to Kenya. This was Henry’s first visit and involvement with Global missions.
Team 2 departed from Houston on July 11th for a 17 day mission. After a long journey, the group set foot in Africa expectant of a mighty move from God. We were greeted by Pastor Velosia & Daniel Kibe.



Week 1

Hospital:
We praise God in the name of Jesus for opening doors for our team to arrive safely with duffle bags full of medical supplies and medications that were donated to the Maua Methodist Hospital. The team members took part in helping to inventory the large amounts of materials that will surely bless the patients at the hospital. Financial donations were made to the hospital to assist in continued health care and outreach cost.
We took a tour of the hospital grounds and later were introduced by Pyppa Johnson (WVUMC) to her new partners in Missions. A delightful bunch who work for ‘Samaritans Purse’. The Samaritans Purse is another outreach organization that works diligently to serve the underclass in Africa and around the world. They have an office located on the hospital grounds. We were given a brief overview of an Aids awareness campaign to reach and educate the youth in Maua and the surrounding areas.

Daily worship:
The team had a wonderful experience of attending the morning church services that are held in the (Chapel) at the Maua complex. We were richly blessed every morning. Our Father entrusted us to lead a morning of the worship celebration. The team took part in singing, scripture reading, testimonials and bringing a refreshing word from God to the people. Each morning approximately 100 to 120 persons attended the Chapel services. After our work here in Kenya is completed, we will never be the same in our spiritual and natural walk with Christ.

Sunday Worship:

On July 15th we attended Sunday worship services with new friends. We began our day with breakfast. At 9:45 a car picked us up to transport us to the church which was located deeper within the Maua area. Pyppa Johnson (whom had been in Africa for a month), was asked to preach a sermon at the church. We had a delightful time in the Lord. Henry was well received by the youth there. They loved us and gave special gifts all around. Pyppa gave a heart warming message to the people and the presence of the Holy Spirit reigned through out the whole worship experience.

New Partnerships:

It is through this experience that we were introduced to Rev. Alfred Miheso (originally from Kisumu). Through out our stay in Maua, Rev. Alfred shared his God given vision for the spiritual growth of his churches within that circuit.

We were able to bless the Youth from his church during our week long stay in the area. We gave out ‘inspirational bracelets’ which were well received. Before departing – they gave a wonderful farewell to Pyppa Johnson and during this time we were able to sow seeds of advice and words of wisdom upon the young people. Amidst tears of joy each team member took a turn and shared from our hearts with the people.

During our stay, Dr Mueti’ and this wife Grace invited us to have fellowship and dinner at their home. As the presence of God came forth tears of joy flowed upon each person who was present. We were able to exchange ideas and concepts concerning more work projects to be done in Maua.

Future Plans:

Wonderful News came upon our departure. Rev. Alfred and Dr. Mueti’ have been so moved by WVUMC that they are now inspired to form local youth soccer teams in order to draw the youth in the community. The teams will serve as an avenue for witnessing the good news of Jesus among the young people. During the end of soccer playoffs there will be 2 trophies given

The second place will be called the McKenna cup
The first place award will be called the Windsor Village cup.

We see the hand of God at work as he is using the UMC to reach the world and to encourage one another for the building up of the Kingdom.



Building Aids Home



Maua- New Aids Home Building project:


A servant's heart to build the Kingdom



The construction project was one of the most amazing works of God. The team members volunteered to be part of the building project that provided a new shelter for 2 orphaned children and their elderly grandparents. The building of this home (under the direction of our construction leader – Darryl Johnson), was truly a labor of love on the part of this group. The team rose early every morning to begin the work of sawing, nailing and painting. Funds from the mission team were used to purchase the wood and building materials for this project. With God’s grace the house was completed in 4 days. On the day of completion the entire team gathered to lay hands on and bless this precious dwelling. This team truly displayed a servant’s heart.



Week 2

Ministry in Nakuru:

During week 2 of our assignment we spent several days in Nakuru. One of the highlights of this leg of our mission was our 10 am worship experience. Our driver, Peter, made arrangements for us to attend church in Nakuru at the Assemblies of God- House of Prayer. The Senior Pastor Wallace Ndachi and his wife Jane were wonderful host. This meeting was God directed. The sermon was entitled, “What is acceptable to God?” Additionally, Pastor Kibe gave a powerful testimony before the congregation about her life and the trials that God has brought her through. Afterward we all met in the Pastors office and God met us in a mighty way! We prayed for the Pastor and his wife. The Spirit of the Lord was allowed to have his way. This couple were blessed richly and encouraged in the work that they must continue to do in the ministry.

Orphan Visit:

On our journey to Nakuru, we were able to stop in Thompson Falls. We were vessels for the Master’s use by re-visiting the catholic orphanage that is located there. Several of the members hugged and encouraged the little ones bringing smiles to the faces. The children are living with AIDS and the staff/ Nuns were encouraged to see the team. Henry took time to play kick ball while Pyppa and Darryl made new friends and inquired about kids from last year, some of who have passed away. A donation was made 2006 and it was good to see the continued work that God is doing for the beautiful little ones.

Street Children:

Team 2 was taken by Pastor Kibe to the Bethesda Children Center. It is an inner city refuge for ‘street boys’. We were introduced to Mr. Kissinger the founder of the center. We met the boys and the staff. The children blessed us by performing acrobatic routines and proudly showing off their new found skills. We rewarded them with candy and will never forget the new friends that God is blessing us with.


KBC Land Purchase:

“Get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give you. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.”

This is what the Lord is indeed doing by opening the door for the land that has been purchased by WVUMC. The 1st phrase of the KBC site is evolving into a creation from God for the orphanage and a chapel for worship. God has used Brother Daniel Kibe and Pastor Velosia as instruments in overseeing the business and spiritual aspects of this large project. We were able to do some painting and light construction at the KBC site. Monies from the missions fund are used to purchase the much needed materials to aid in completing this project. On last year, the team planted trees so we were able to see the project come together in a whole new light.

The children and the surrounding community will be richly blessed by the presence of the KBC site.

Houston Team 2:

Jehovah our God used us to minister to each other on the mission field. We experienced some close calls while in Kenya. We pressed and prayed our way through. We know our heavenly Father as a healer indeed- bringing recovery to Pastor Kibe and other minor aliments that mission volunteer’s face while on the field.

God took us to new levels of revelation in his word through nightly bible studies and prayer sessions. Each member of the team learned leadership skills by facilitating nightly prayer and discussions.

KBC Kenya Brochure








KINGDOM BUILDER’S CENTER - KENYA
CHILDREN’S CENTER
Pastor Velosia Kibe

The Children’s Center of the Kingdom Builder’s Center – Kenya (KBC-K) will be a home for orphan children between the ages of 4 to 17 years of age. Most of their parents have died due to HIV-Aids and Malaria. We will take the least, the last, and the lost.Those children who do not have any living relative left alive to care for them.

In the Republic of Kenya on Africa’s east coast live more than 150,000 orphaned children many under the age of 5 years. With the help of the Ministry of Social Services of the Republic of Kenya, we have established a Community Based Organization (CBO) which will assist us in screening and assessing the needs of these children and learn of their background, their tribe and language and their reason for being orphaned. We will also have access to their medical records which would contain information about any illnesses they may have contracted. Many of the children are affected by Malaria. Some have the HIV virus, but both of these diseases are treatable. Their physical ailments can be controlled and healed with consistent medical attention and nutrition.

With the Lord’s help and favor upon these little ones, we will fill the Kingdom Builder’s Children’s Center with the teaching of the word of God, love, the laughter of children, and hope for their bright future.

Phase One of the Children’s Center is completed, and is being furnished to house 30 children and one live in house mother. There is also a full-time guard living in the guard quarters inside the gate of the stone fence, and a part – time gardener who lives off campus.
Since the KBC-Kenya covers 3.5 acres of fertile farmland, the children will learn to care for the livestock and help the caretakers to cultivate and harvest the crops used for their food.
Free public schools are near the Center. The Center’s staff and volunteers from the community village, as well as Christian missionaries, will come to assist the project.These persons will teach the children the Holy Scriptures and Christian principles.The physical needs as well as the spiritual needs of the children will be taken care of.

After Phases 2 through 4 are constructed, the home for the children will be able to support up to 100 children. The children will reside in the home from age 4 throguh17. When they complete their form 4 education at the age of 17, (which is the equivalent of a U.S High school education) they will progress to a trade school center. There they can learn a variety of trades including, but not limited to, mechanics, electrician, plumbing, computer skills, and sewing. Those who demonstrate great academic potential will be helped to find sponsors to support them in University.

Our Phase One immediate needs for 30 children are:Standard size pillows @ $2 each18 bunk beds at $60 each6 cabinets to be constructed in each bedroom at $400 each18 blankets at $20 each18 twin sheet sets at $10 each36 kits for the children (includes, soap, toothpaste and brush, deodorant, lotion) at $10 each3 dozen bath towels at $15 per dozen3 dozen washcloths @ $5 per dozenWashing powder (6 months supply for washing clothes $1003 Sitting room/office Sofas at $300 each4 Sitting room/office chairs at $100 each3 tables @ $50 eachSmall desk, chair, and file cabinet for office $300

Kitchen furnishings are being calculated. We will purchase a Hotpoint stove and have the cabinets and countertops built by a professional carpenter in Nairobi.

Jamaica Mission Trip 2007


Jamaica Mission Team

Nine missionaries from Windsor Village UMC with eight missionaries from Boynton UMC united to become one missionary team to serve the people of St Mary’s Parish, Jamaica.
The team began the mornings with praise, prayer and God’s power in His presence. The days ended with devotion, praise, prayer and God’s purpose fulfilled on each day. The team’s plans were to serve the community of St. Mary Parish by repairing Wesleyan Church on the mountain 4000ft up, and provide Vacation Bible School. We soon found out that God’s plan was for us to minister to any need that came before us. As Vacation Bible School was in progress with the children, there were also teenagers and young adults to be ministered to. Two of the ladies began to minster to the young ladies, while one of the men on the team ministered to the young men. Several of the middle age children were given praise and worship dance techniques, so that they may glorify God in dance.
Those who request prayer for family needs were prayed for. Those that had special needs to further their life pursuit, resources were provided. There was a continuous sharing of faith, love, and personal testimonies to the people. The people of the Parish became a part of our lives as well as we had become a part of theirs.
The team began to repair lives as well as repairing a 150 year old church building. The church banner reminded us that: “We all have this MINISTRY – A call to EVANGELIZE.”

Saturday June 9
The team departed from IAH airport in Houston at 5:30pm


Sunday June 10
The team arrived in London Heathrow airport at 11am
All but two of the team members enjoyed a city tour by bus of a small section of London.
We took the train at the airport to Pennington Station and caught a number 15 double Decker red bus to
The world renowned Piccadilly Circus. We alighted the bus there and took many photos of the area and each other.
We returned to the Heathrow airport by 4pm, in plenty of time to catch our 7:25pm flight to Nairobi.
We enjoyed a late lunch in one of the many eateries in the beautiful terminal at Heathrow.

Monday June 11
The team arrived in Nairobi Kenya at Jomo Kenyatta airport at 7:15am.




Our tour company and guides had our drinking water already purchased for us. We were taken to "Seasons"
Restaurant (one of my favorites) in downtown Nairobi. After a good meal and Kenya tea we
Crossed the street to the forex money exchange office to change our US currency into Kenya
Schillings for our miscellaneous needs.
We checked in to the Mystica Guest House in Nairobi, and everyone was treated to a single room.



**We visited the first orphanage in the afternoon.
This home ministered to the orphaned children of professional sex workers at the truck stop nearby. The founders, a husband and wife team, do a great ministry trying to protect those children from falling in the trap of promiscuity and disease.

We toured their compound which included a school, and a small barn with livestock.
They also had living quarters and an in house library.
From our team, we presented 6,000 Kenya schillings (about $91 Usd) for the purchase of food for them.
After giving the children the sports balls and candy treats purchased by the teams project money,
We prayed for the students and their administrators.
We returned to Mystica Guest house.
We were finally able to stretch out, shower and relax after our long journey.
Overnight in Mystica.

Tuesday June 12
**We were picked up at 8:30am and taken to an orphan home in Githari that morning, a small town 4 kilometers east of Nairobi.
This home housed over 30 children. Most of them were in School when we arrived that morning, but we were able
to interact with the younger children until the older ones were dismissed from classes.
With Dorothy leading us, we played games, sang songs and talked to the children. We brought them small gifts, activity books, and crayons and played many of their traditional games.
The children were very bright and sang songs, recited scripture and gave testimonies of their faith in Jesus
Christ.
We presented the school with 42 pairs of shoes donated by Dr. Wanda Mott-Russell and her husband Bill Russell, and brought to Kenya by the team from Windsor Village.
The team paid for 30 pairs of new shoes later that week, for the students through our tour company, Danvelo Tours and Safaris
who were given a list of the shoe sizes of the children most needy.
The team presented the orphan administrators with a monetary gift of 6,000 schillings.
We also gave them new sports balls for outdoor games.
**In the afternoon, we visited a small orphan home that cared for 15 precious little girls. This home was run by a catholic father and Sister.
We performed the ministry of Jesus with the girls. (Foot washing) and then fitted them with donated shoes according to size.
We brought other play things for the girls including dolls, play jewelry, and arts and crafts.
The team contributed 7,000 schillings worth of food staples for the orphanage.
The team took all of the girls who did not fit the donated shoes, and bought them new ones in the nearby town.
Overnight in Mystica.





Wednesday June 13
**In the morning the team visited and ministered to the residents of the Ngong Slum. The CBO Community Based Project for the care of the children and their mothers infected with HIV/Aids was awesome. Mary, the director, has dedicated her life to helping women in the slums with aids to have a better quality of life. The program she coordinates provides care for the pre-school children during the day, medical ADV drugs for the mothers and they also seeks sponsorship for the children old enough to go to school. The parents cannot not afford even the least amount of books and tuition fees.
Several of our team members generously committed to sponsor 10 children in that community.
We prayed from house to house in the slum. The homes were in a desperate shape, but the women were proud to welcome our team and offer them the best they had.
We bought the crafts made by the mothers there to support their livelihood.
We left with them donations of clothing for adults and children, and school supplies, arts and crafts, and sport balls.
These donations were from the congregations of St. Paul's UMC in Port Arthur, Texas, Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church and Windsor Village UMC.




**We were blessed by the CBO Medical Coordinator of the project to a splendid midday meal at her home after we finished playing with the children and praying with the mothers.
One of their group of mothers died the day we were there, in the hospital, leaving a 4 year old girl who had not been told yet of her mother's fate.
**When we left the slum we went directly to the 20 acre residential facility for orphans in Ngong in the afternoon.
One team member generously bought shoes for the entire pre-school. (23 children)
The team brought school supplies and clothing for all the children and a monetary donation of 6,000.
We took a most interesting tour of their facilities, which included their living quarters, kitchen, office space and acres of vegetables which were used at the facility to feed the children and to sell. They also had livestock there on the property. The cows not only produced milk for the children, but also brought in income from the sale of the milk.
Mary is in the process of building a "bio-gas" pit that will supply fuel for cooking and heating of the facility.
We were served tea and Chapatti (what we would call a flour tortilla)
Dinner and overnight in Mystica.

Thursday June 14
**The team leaves Nairobi and heads for Nakuru. On the way there we stopped to view Thompson Falls in Nyahururu.
We arrived at Nakuru and checked into the Kunste Hotel where team members in double occupancy stayed in Suites.
Staying in a suite is a very unusual blessing for a mission team, anywhere.
**After lunch at the hotel, we went to the Nakuru National Reserve for an afternoon Game Drive which included the spectacular view from the lookout point of Lake Nakuru, a natural salt water lake. Thousands of pink flamingoes make their home there.






As well as some very friendly baboons looking for a food hand-out:
Dinner and overnight in Kunste.

Friday June 15
**We visited the MIA (Mission in Action) orphan home housing 27 babies.
We were delighted to work there with the children, changing them, feeding them, singing and playing with them.
We also attended their twice per day worship services.
To hear 2 year olds quote scripture and pray as they did was phenomenal.
**In that same community we visited "Mama" an old lady Windsor has helped to hold on to her property two years ago.
We visited and prayed with her and her mentally challenged daughter.
After leaving Mama's we visited the site of a new medical clinic in the area.
**A miracle occurred that Dorothy had brought many pairs of eyeglasses to donate, and the Clinic was about to have an ophthalmology
event for the community the following week. Look at our God move on behalf of his people!!!!
The team donated many medicines and surgical equipment from Medical Bridges, in Houston.
Ivan and Mary, the Australian couple who run the Orphan home, allowed the team to do their laundry at their super new and ultra modern facility. When it comes to orphanages I have seen in Kenya, MIA Baby orphanage is one of the best!
Dinner and overnight in Kunste.

Saturday June 16
** We go to the Windsor Village KBC Kenya Orphanage project site in Dundori!



We were able to work for just a few hours because of the rain, but in those few hours many things were accomplished.
After being given a tour of the 3.5 acres and a descriptive discussion of the completed vision, some of the team members painted
The interior walls of the kitchen and sitting room/office of the facility. Others worked outside on a section of wire fencing.
We were provided with hot tea on the site by generous and appreciative neighbors of the Dundori community.
The people in Dundori are so grateful to Windsor Village Church for establishing a compound of facilities to help their community.
**We left the site after it started to rain and unfortunately got stuck in the muddy road, (both coming and leaving the site) Windsor Village Missions ministry has made a donation toward the improvement of the road leading up to the KBC site in the community. That work will be finished after the winter month of July in Kenya has passed. July is the time when it is rainy and quite cold in the highland area.
**Our team member L.C. deserves special recognition for his strength and know how in helping to free the vans from the muddy ruts in the road. Way to go L.C.!!
Dinner at KoKeb in Nakuru town and overnight in Kunste.

Sunday June 17
** Sunday was a very special day for us. After working together for 6 days, on the 7th day we had a day of rest and worship together! We divided out group into 2 churches in the Dundori area so that our team members would be given the opportunity to minister to the people in Africa.
Cynthia preached at the service I (Pastor Kibe) attended and Rev. Kyra from wheeler Ave. preached for the other service. It was an awesome experience. We all had an opportunity to individually greet the congregation and offer words of encouragement to them.
** After Church we witnessed yet another miracle while we were at the medical clinic in Dundori. We had the chance to see and hold a New born baby born while we were touring the maternity ward. And we also had a chance to fellowship with the baby's family and offer prayers of blessing for the baby!
The team presented 20,000 schillings to the clinic and $8,000 of medical supplies sent by Medical Bridges, Houston.
The sisters who run the clinic went into immediate and prolonged praise to God for these blessings. It was very moving.
When we first arrived at the clinic we were met with outstanding African hospitality. The sisters had prepared a dinner feast for us. It was very special visit.
Dinner and overnight at Kunste.

Monday June 18
Our team's original itinerary placed us at the KBC project for another full day of work on Monday, but because of the roads, other arrangements had to be made for the team in Nakuru town.
Windsor Village Missions ministry has great relationships with many orphanages in Kenya. One of those facilities is a street boys (and girls) ministry.
**Fortunately they were able to re-arrange the boy's school schedule to accommodate our team.
The boys and (girl) were great. We had the whole day to be with them.
They performed their acrobatics for us. They are quite good. We talked to them one on one, learned new games and songs from them and taught them a few.
We took the boys into town to shop. Everyone got new shoes and socks. Because of the generosity of one team member, they also received fabric and sewing notions for making 2 uniforms for each of them and a pull over sweater. The street girl received material to make a new dress, and new dresses for her 2 little daughters.
During our shopping outing, we met other street kids who were still "out there" Our prayer was that they too would come to the home to enjoy the benefits of a real home and an education.
We treated the boys to a soda and chips "what we call French fries" They all seemed to enjoy it. There were 18 boys and one girl and her 2 daughters.
Dinner and overnight in Kunste.

Tuesday June 19
**These next 4 days include fun, relaxation and shopping for souvenirs.
We drove to Samburu National Game Reserve and checked into Sarova Shaba Lodge, a luxury 5 star lodge in the park, overlooking the fast flowing Uaso Nyiro River. This place offered a full set of amenities including message, nails and pedicures, a swimming pool, fantastic food, and one of nature's most beautiful landscapes anywhere in the world. Natives of the Samburu people performed their traditional dances each night at the lodge.
We had lunch at the lodge and an afternoon Game Drive.
Dinner and overnight in Sarova Shaba.
