We kicked off our new C2C partnership with Fountain of Hope last week by providing a coffee house at River Oaks Community Church in Maryville, Tenn. It was a delightful and special evening!As people entered into our time together, they came through and experienced a typical home visit in the slums of Kicheko in Nairobi, Kenya.
It was family night at River Oaks, complete with children sitting on blankets on the floor, small groups seated together, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filling the air.
This was a great opportunity for the team who went over in July to share more specifically about the individual children of FOH as well as unpack the specific logistics of how
the partnership will unfold between our two churches over the next five years.
We ended with suggested ways of contributing to this great cause by as simple an idea as one less pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks a week. We realize that the smallest sacrifice will grant school fees and basic care for one of the children.
Most importantly, we prayed, asking that by the power of the Holy Spirit, we would be gripped by God to consider the rescue of the orphan as we do this one child, one church, and one community at a time through our new partnership with FOH.
