THE BIG 4

KENYA

by Carly Orcutt

In December 2019 and Summer of 2020, 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, Oasis for Orphans, Kenya Kids Can, Little Lambs Daycare, 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 alongside Pastor George Irungu doing evangelism in Naivasha. We will also take teams to serve at Oasis for Orphans. These are two of our ministries where you will see firsthand what short term mission work is all about.

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!

UGANDA

by Molly Pluenekke

In the summer of 2019, Love Africa will  join our partners in Uganda! Our teams will serve with Coburwas Primary School, CIYOTA foundation and Kyangwali Refugee Settlement to work with people displaced by war and violence. During mission, teams will stay at St. Patrick’s, a working farm in Kyangwali, where fresh meals will be prepared daily. Kyangwali is about 2 hours west of Hoima town on Lake Albert and is home to over 43,000 refugees from Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan. Teams will have the opportunity to partner with Coburwas School to aid in teacher collaboration and training, classroom teaching, conducting VBS, and sports camps during their mission.

In addition to all of the amazing relational ministry work, mission in Uganda will include a 2 night-3 day safari through Red Chilies to either Murchison Falls N.P. or Queen Elizabeth N.P. Expect to see lots of elephants, hippos, lions, buffalo, and a wide variety of antelope and birds. Safari also includes chimp tracking and a boat cruise!

ZAMBIA

In the summer of 2014, Love Africa expanded to Zambia! Our ministry partners are a lifelong missionary family, the Whitfields. Luke and Elise established a mission station called Teranova, dedicated to serving in Southern Zambia.  Their ministry, Eleeo Project, was established in 2012 and focuses primarily on church planting, foundations for farming, and evangelism with the Tonga people. During your mission, you will stay at their home located on a 4,000 acre commercial farm in the bush of Southern Zambia. Some team members may be invited to spend a night or two in a local village. Teams members will be building relationships and sharing the gospel through crafts, sports, and education by organizing a Kids Camp in a nearby village. Construction projects, leadership training, and conversational evangelism are all possible avenues of ministry for the trip.

In addition to these great opportunities for ministry, you will also get a chance to glimpse God’s majesty when you visit Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the world. Teams safari on the Chobe River on the border of Bostwana, where we always see elephants, crocodiles, hippos and other big game.

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.

In the summer of 2018, Love Africa expanded to Rwanda, “the land of a thousand hills.”  Our Rwandan teams are led by Olivier Gakuba and his fantastic team who currently reside in Kigali. Teams typically spend 1-2 days in Kigali visiting the Genocide Memorial and also a Children’s Hospital devoted to pediatric cancer patients. Teams will mainly  be working in Gisenyi (5-6 days) on the border of Congo near Lake Kivu. Partnering with a local church, teams engage in both outreach & discipleship.  Our team will lead a kids camp, mentor youth and overall serve to strengthen the efforts of the local church. We almost always visit Kunda Village, to encourage one of the poorest communities in the region.
