News From Kenya

We are currently raising money for water, food and school fees/supplies for the next school year. H2H is also continuing to improve the cook house and plans to build an outdoor bread oven so bread can be made on site. The bread oven is expected to cost about $300 for the concrete and bricks needed to build it and the cook house needs windows and doors costing around $400. You can help support H2H with a donation on our website at h2hintl.org. We also have a link on the website to sign up with Amazon Smile and FredMeyer shopping donation program for more ways to give to the children in need.

The Bonding of H2H Partners

With H2H’s support Samson & Gladys traveled from Kenya to Uganda to meet for the first time with Franklyn & Sara. This was an important bonding experience for all the partners of H2H to work together on one page in making the greatest impact on the children they are helping. Together they attended a pastor’s leadership conference in Mukuno, hosted by Greg & Teresa from Grants Pass, OR. Greg & Teresa were in Uganda visiting their sponsored children, leading a pastors conference and witnessing the transfer of ownership of H2H land to Franklyn and Sara who will make good use of the land.

His Love Counts 2019

H2H is planning a “His Love Counts” trip to Africa in mid June 2019. We are praying to go to two or three countries. The cost for each person to be determined on length of stay and countries visiting. We are mobilizing a team for God’s purpose in Africa. Volunteers feeling led to go will need to contact Gloria Cooper at 541-324-4650 for more information. The deadline to sign up for the trip is December 2018. 

If you are feeling led to help, but can’t go to Africa, you can donate money to fund the trip or donate needed items for the children on our website at h2hintl.org. 

H2H would like to extend our warmest thank you for all the support, prayers, and donations we have received for this wonderful cause. God bless you.
