In December 2017 and Summer of 2018, 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, CURE Hospital, Rift Valley Academy, Little Lambs Daycare, Rift Valley Fellowship, and Flow of Hope – 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 refugees at the IDP Camps (Internally Displaced People) as a part of a feeding program, established in 2011, which feeds over 300 children each school day. You will also be able to connect with the children at Southern Cross Academy and Little Lambs Daycare.

In the summer of 2014, Love Africa expanded and our teams joined our partners in Zambia! Our teams serve with the Whitfields, established missionaries in that area in partnership with their ministry, Eleeo Project. During your mission, you will stay at their home located on a 4,000 acre commercial farm in the bush of Southern Zambia and also in a local village in Eleeo Project’s Mission Housing. Teams will be sent out to make contact with the local people in that area, building relationships and sharing the gospel with them. Some teams may take part in organizing a Kids Camp in a nearby village that will be paired with community outreach. Short-term projects, leadership training, and relational ministry are all possible activities scheduled for the trip.

In the summer of 2018, Love Africa will expand once again and 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!
