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!
Here’s our family’s main intro video updated a little for 2020.
Watch our new video to see what life and ministry looks like in Kenya!
We are currently raising funds to replace the RAV4 you see in this video. If you’d like to help make that happen, donate here through CMF International.
Merry Christmas from the Gerbers! Thanks to a very generous Christmas present, we were able to go to America to see friends for Christmas. We’re taking advantage of the snow and 10° now, but looking forward to 80° temps back home in Kenya!
This weekend we tried something new to be able to interact with more you. Skyping or FaceTiming is the best way we have to interact with faming and friends back in America. We get to do that with family whenever we want and we LOVE it! Facebook LIVE gives us the opportunity to do much of that, but with a wider audience. It’s a candid, un-produced and un-scripted conversation at our dining room table. It also gives you the chance to ask us a question about something you’ve wondered that maybe we wouldn’t think to share. That’s great because things here are normalizing for us and we forget to share.
So here is a recording of our first Facebook LIVE session we are calling Saturday Morning LIVE. Because of the time difference, we have to interact during your morning or early afternoon. Most of you are working or going to church during those times. So Saturday morning at 9am seems like the best time. This LIVE session went an hour and 15 minutes.
Well, we finally got a new family photo taken IN Kenya! If you need the full sized photo for promoting our ministry, click the photo and then right-click on the larger photo to save it.
Our family wanted to share a bit of our life with #TeamGerbersGo, so today we made you a little Christmas present. Merry Christmas! We hope you like it.
This is… Life.
Meet the Fam! Hannah’s first time meeting Millicent and all of us to meet Francis!
We showed them all the letters that they’ve written us, brought them some gifts and food for their families, and talked with them about their dreams, favorite things, and prayed for them and their families.
Thankful to spend our first Thanksgiving in Kenya eating turkey etc. with teammates and other expats. The highlight was taking turns holding this beautiful baby girl!
