The beautiful tea hills of Gituru, Kenya
This summer we are returning to the Central Highlands of Kenya for Kamp Tumaini.
It was here in Gituru where we first held the Kamp Tumaini summer camp program for the orphans and vulnerable children of the Guardians of Hope. Four years later and we are back working with the African Christian Church and Schools (ACC&S) who will be hosting two of this summer's three camps.
This time around, we are working with the new Guardians of Hope project officer for the ACC&S, John Njihia. Prior to his current role, John directed the ACC&S Urban Self Help Group ministries in Nairobi. He brings to his work great energy and a sincere love for people. It has been such a joy to serve with John.
This week, John and Erica are conducting final site visits and logistics for Kamp Tumaini. We are excited for the students and volunteers that will share in this time of fun and encouragement. Over the past few years, at each camp, we have witnessed transformation in the lives of both the campers and the counselors. We are trusting God for another amazing series of camps.
John and Erica getting ready for Kamp Tumaini
Please join us in praying for the upcoming Kamp Tumaini. We are praying for the SERVE team from Western Canada as they prepare for their journey to Kenya and for the local groups that are getting ready to receive them.
We join all of those who are praying for the tens of thousands of families who have been affected by recent wildfires in the United States, Canada, and Greece.
We also remember the people of Zimbabwe who are voting today in their first national elections since President Robert Mugabe was removed from leadership last November. We pray for peace and renewed hope for Zimbabwe.
Thank you for your support and faithful prayers. To learn more about the work of Canadian Baptist Ministries in Africa and around the world, please visit our website at www.cbmin.org
