Almost 6 weeks ago the first MOHI 6th graders showed up for the very first week of Angaza Discovery Camp! Katie joined them for the first week of the girls’ 2-week camp and then again for the first week of the first boys’ camp. There are already so many exciting stories coming from camp!
But first, you really need to see it for yourself! MOHI made a video from the first camp and we wanted to share that with you!
As you can see in this video, this is life changing stuff and we are already seeing transformations! Yes, it’s #GivingTuesday, a day when every worthy cause ask you for help. Angaza is an experience all MOHI kids from slums and remote villages should get to experience.
Angaza is staffed by pastors, camp counselors (most are MOHI graduates), mentors for the counselors, cooks, a nurse, a horse trainer, an ocean life guard and a librarian – all helping to put on a quality and powerful camp experience. As you can see this 2 week camp takes resources to put all this together.
This is where you can be a part of giving this experience to almost 1900 kids this year alone. Pray for everyone involved in putting on camp and for these 1900 campers this year. Altogether it costs around $300 for a kid to travel and spend 2 weeks at camp.
Will you send a MOHI kid to camp? Maybe 2 or 10? Their parents are not in a position to provide anything like this for them, but you probably are. Give whatever amount you want with a joyful heart knowing the joy these kids are experiencing at Angaza Discovery Camp.
This #GivingTuesday you can give to the Angaza Discovery Camp through CMF’s website. Join our family in sending kids to camp and let’s see how many kids we can send to camp!
Missions of Hope International has a new camp for MOHI kids. Katie wants to tell you more!
This week Patrick got to spend time in our advanced computer classes for MOHI graduates who are pursuing good data entry jobs available from our partners. One of MOHI’s supporters knew someone with a data entry outsourcing company in America. Now that company is training and hiring our high school graduates for good paying jobs. Isn’t it wild how God uses our skills and passions?
What are you really good at and love doing? MOHI uses visiting partners with skills in firefighting, hairdressing, teaching, data entry, music, IT, social work, counseling, pastoral ministry, business, etc. to give life-transforming opportunities to people in our communities. How can you leverage your gifts to create opportunities for people?
All 8th grade students get a Bible before they go to High School. Today my office has been busy handing out Bibles to these young students. Many of them, this is their very first Bible they have ever had. Pure Joy!
Finally got out to the boarding school at Joska to see all of the progress made since we first visited 9 years ago!
New clinic, dorms, arena, greenhouses and computer lab.
Today was a wonderful and very difficult day in the slums. Patrick and I have been blessed to be doing a few home visits in the Slums.
Today we went to visit a single mother and her son who has Cerebral Palsy. The mother is loving and strong and does everything she can to provide for her family. I’m so grateful for Amon who works with the disability program who visits this family often to show Jesus’s love to this family and offer encouragement and support for this beautiful family.
We are excited for our teammate Nikki to come back soon. She is currently raising support to return and serve in the disability program at Missions of Hope. Support Nikki!
Today was our first day touring some of the Hope Centers that we’ve never been to before. Since school is out for the year, we got to ask the staff lots of questions. We were inspired by the staff leadership!
Funny Story: When we were leaving one school, Katie was trying to connect with an elementary aged boy. Since he held a paper with some Swahili words on it, Katie pointed out some of the words she knew and translated them into English. A few moments later we found out the boy was taking an exam testing his Swahili vocabulary. Oops. #MissionaryFail
