Project Launches Medical Clinic, Tailoring School

Fountain of Hope Church in Nairobi, Kenya recently opened a small medical clinic and tailoring school on the church property. The tailoring school has six sewing machines which will be used to teach women basic tailoring skills so that they can help provide income for their families.

The clinic and school are just another example of the church being active in their community and showing the love of Christ by caring for physical needs.

'Night of Hope' in Tenn. Benefits WO Home in Kenya

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.
