CrossTraining has received another Timothy Project request from Valor Christian High School and the Math and Science Instructor/Team Leader Greg Blake. Blake and his Valor team of 25 (21 students and 4 faculty) will depart to Kenya June 16-30. Valor for a number of years now have been working with H.E.A.R.T and Children of Hope. Children of Hope, an orphanage in Kenya was an early Timothy Project recipient in 2011.
Valor Christian High School’s Discovery Kenya program provides a unique opportunity for students and school faculty to serve and support widows and orphans. The Kenya Discovery Team will partner with H.E.A.R.T Ministries and Children of Hope to bring healing and empowerment to widows, orphans, and others impacted by poverty and HIV/AIDS and other diseases.
For Valor, this is the seventh year of partnership with H.E.A.R.T. Valor students will serve the poor in the slums of Nairobi and be involved with a work project in a rural village – building relationships and also a home for a widow and her family. The team will also participate in a local church service with children and minister to Kenyan orphans that are a part of Children of Hope. Team Leader Blake shared about the opportunity through soccer,
Soccer is a bridge that immediately connects American students and Kenyan students…For many children in Kenya, their only soccer ball is a cluster of balled up trash, bound together with twine. To give the gift of a real soccer ball to these children would leave behind a lasting experience beyond our couple weeks there.
