2019 Kenya Outreach Team

Traveling From: 3/15/2019 to 3/26/2019; Team Cost: $1195*

Butali, Kenya - The 2019 Kenya Mission Team has been invited by Bishop Athanasios of Kisumu and West Kenya to share the love of Christ at an Orthodox orphanage in central Kenya The camp program will be open to the children of the Saint Tabitha Orphanage. The Team will offer lessons on the faith, crafts and lead sport activities. Evening activities may include discussions with the teenagers on social and faith issues, as well as assist with light construction.

In 2015, Fr. Athanasios was elevated to Bishop by His Beatitude Theodoros II, the Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa. In his speech at his enthronement, the Patriarch said: “The hour of missions in the vast and great country of Kenya ‘has indeed come.’ The fullness of time has arrived; the time of sowing has come as has the time of reaping. Teach them to love Christ’s name above all.” The Diocese of Kisumu and Western Kenya includes over 18,000 faithful, 200 parishes and 100 clergy. It is made up of four different tribes: Luhya, Luo, Nandi and Turkana. About 9% of Kenya’s population belongs to peoples only marginally impacted by the Gospel, but a large number of people have been exposed to the Gospel.

Mission Team members should be exemplary role models for the children.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
