The Neighborhood Church in Littleton, Colorado is partnering with Children of Hope to serve two orphanages–in Nairobi and Kitale, Kenya from August 7 to August 20, 2014. The five member team, led by Pastor Mike Klassen will be conducting a Vacation Bible School for the children in the orphanage while they are on summer break and will look to integrate soccer into the program for the kids as well.
This is the second mission trip that our congregation has done and part of our vision is to build relationships so that our church members can support the children in these orphanages.
Klassen spoke to the activities and work that the team plans on contributing while at the two orphanages including conducting the VBS program, cleaning up around the orphanage locations, playing with the children, and preaching at nearby churches that the children attend.
We’re a relational church and so we want our mission and work to be relational. One of the things we are going to do is take the kids into town and treat them to dinner and purchase some toys and goodies possibly – you know, things that they probably never get to experience.
Donations are needed before August 1, 2014 – balls, shirts and shorts for children are among some of the needs. If you can make a financial donation to help The Neighborhood Church it would be greatly appreciated!
This is the second time that CrossTraining has supported equipment or a team to a Children of Hope orphanage – as this team goes, will they find the orange ball (2011) from the previous trip? Stay tuned to find out!
