SW District Missions
Kenya Mission Trip - Feb 3, 2017 thru Feb 18, 2017
Leader: Rev. Lynn Renne, RN, Associate Pastor, Aldersgate UMC Evansville IN
Mission: We will prepare for and hold a 4 day medical/dental/eye clinic in Ekerenyo village and a 2 day eye glass camp in Dago village. Both are in the southwest part of Kenya where we have had a presence for over 10 years. Our medical camps, held in the Reading Centre we built in 2005, includes staffing by local clinical officers/nurses and dentists, eye glass fitting, (both prescription and reading) and lab testing. We will be initiating a cataract surgery program in a nearby hospital.
Non medical workers are needed on the team.
We have a sponsorship program for 4-5 year old children in an Early Childhood Development school and participate in the local classrooms, make home visits, and attend local church services.
The great thing is being able to get to know and work with the Kenyans, learning from each other and learning about the culture. The final two days are spent on safari in Masai Mara.
This will be Rev. Renne's 15th trip to Kenya.
Cost: In country travel (vans, drivers, lodging and most meals, safari) will be approximately $2000. Airfare (can be arranged for the group), immunizations, visa and passport costs are on your own.
