This summer Bethlehem First will be sending a group of 15 individuals on a mission trip to Kenya, Africa. Our host is our international missions partner The Kenya Project. As part of our mission we will be working at the Mountain Park Academy in their primary school and trade school. We will be providing a Vacation Bible School experience to over 200 children who attend the academy, in addition to working in the school and dining hall, visiting in the classrooms, providing recreational activities, and working on some maintenance issues in the school and orphanage. For more information on The Kenya Project please visit their website www.thekenyaproject.org.
Below is a list of supplies we will be collecting to take with us on the trip to share with the students and teachers at Mountain Park Academy.
You can also give monetary donations through HERE. Just be sure to choose “Kenya Mission.”
Also if you are currently sponsoring a student through The Kenya Project Sponsorship Program you can send a small gift with our team to share with your student during our trip. Suggested items to send would be socks, a small toy, a stuffed animal, stickers, coloring book, a framed picture of your family, a handwritten note or card, etc.
