Medical and Humanitarian Aide Supplied to the African Nations
Updated: Dec 20, 2018
Outreach to the Unreach. Visiting various schools in the area.
This was our fifth mission trip to Kenya, East Africa. We were excited and expected God to do great exploits. Not only did we take the Gospel of Jesus, but we also had a great supply of medical and humanitarian aide for our sisters and brothers in Christ.
1 John 3:17-18, If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
Our mission team consisted of seven members: Bob Smith, Mission's Director; Jo Ann W. Smith, missionary; Bishop Herbert E. Kearse, Pastor of New Life Community Church, Fuquay-Varina, NC; Pastor kenneth McDonald, Pastor, Durham, NC; Naomi Moore, retired school teacher, Greenville, NC; Telora Kalu, Youth Director, and Yolanda Graham, RN, both members of New Life Community Church, Greensboro, NC.
We all became acquainted very quickly in an unusual way. Some of our bags weighed over the recommended 70 lbs, therefore, we sprawled ourselves on the airport carpet helping each other transfer belongings from one bag to another. What was two bags now became one bag. We did not want to leave any belongings behind sine most of the items were for Africa.
We departed Raleigh/Durham on July 26, 2004 headed for Minneapolis, then onto Amsterdam and on to Nairobi, Africa. We arrive safely in Nairobi around 8:15 pm, July 27, Kenya time (#missionary, #Kenya, #Africa, #missiontrip, #Masai, #tribe). Thank God for safe passage with all of our possessions. All our luggage and boxes were accounted for. We were met at the airport by several of the Saints and pastors we had met over the years.
