KENYA

by Carly Orcutt

In December 2018 and Summer of 2019, Love Africa Mission will send at least six teams to Kenya. We will travel to Kijabe, Kenya, home to the Africa Inland Mission station established in 1903. On station, teams will connect with Kijabe Hospital, CURE Hospital, Kenya Kids Can, Little Lambs Daycare, Southern Cross, and Rift Valley Fellowship – all incredible ministries that are working to alleviate the brokenness of Kenya.

Members of our team most likely will have the opportunity to meet the Masai people down in the Rift Valley and experience true tribal culture during their Sunday worship service. During our stay, we will have the pleasure of meeting and working with incredible missionaries. Teams will have the opportunity to engage in relational ministry with native Kenyans through each of our ministry partners. We will serve refugees at the IDP Camps (Internally Displaced People) as a part of a feeding program, established in 2011, which feeds over 300 children each school day. You will also be able to connect with the children at Southern Cross Academy and Little Lambs Daycare.

Lastly, in 2019, plans are in motion for small teams to serve in Mombasa (from June-July). Details are forthcoming by written request only. Our primary initiative on the Kenyan coast is to serve alongside missionary efforts to love street kids, help the poor, and serve in various capacities for medical missions, evangelism, and discipleship.

This is sure to be an experience that you will never forget, including a great safari experience!

ZAMBIA

In the summer of 2014, Love Africa expanded and our teams joined our partners in Zambia! Our Zambia teams serve 2 different ministries in two different locations:

Urban Ministry
Our urban ministry partners, Alex Mwilambwe & Laban Mwelwa live and work in the capital Lusaka, Zambia.  During your mission, you will stay at a guest lodge on the outskirts of Lusaka and be working in various communities around the city.  Teams working here will partner with the local church in community outreach, orphan care, hospital ministry, and various work projects.

Rural Ministry
Our rural ministry partners, the Whitfields, are established missionaries serving in Southern Zambia.  Their ministry, Eleeo Project, was established in 2012 and focuses primarily on the Tonga tribe. During your mission, you will stay at their home located on a 4,000 acre commercial farm in the bush of Southern Zambia and also in a local village in Eleeo Project’s Mission Housing. Teams will be sent out to make contact with the local people in that area, building relationships and sharing the gospel with them. Some teams may take part in organizing a Kids Camp in a nearby village that will be paired with community outreach. Short-term projects, leadership training, and relational ministry are all possible activities scheduled for the trip.

In addition to these great opportunities for ministry, you will also get a chance to glimpse God’s power and glory when you visit Victoria Falls, one of the world’s largest waterfalls, and Chobe Safari lodge in Bostwana, where you can see abundant elephant and other big game.

ZIMBABWE

Fishing Village Ministry

In the summer of 2018, Love Africa expanded again to join our partners in Zimbabwe! Our teams will be serving the Tonga fishing villages along the lakeshore between Zambia and Zimbabwe for two weeks, through our partners boat trip. This is may not be what you have in mind when you think “missions in Africa,” but it is that and way more. If you are willing, God will use your time on the boat to transform you in remarkable ways by revealing new parts of His character and showing you how much He cares for you. You will spend time studying God’s word with others and gain insight into spiritual matters. You will laugh and cry. You will learn to praise, worship, and speak truth like never before. You will share fellowship, interact, and pray with the beautiful Tonga people. In addition to all of the amazing relational ministry work, you will be spoiled with the beautiful scenery, amazing sunsets, and lots of wildlife including hippos, crocodiles, elephants, buffalos, lots of birds, and many of other animals.
