WHAT'S NEW?

We were back home in January enjoying (or perhaps tolerating) the very changeable weather. Meetings, a presentation, a retreat for Marilyn and making sure all the young people in Kenya got back to school kept us busy. Check out the Latest Update page to see what we have been doing.

Be sure to look at the Photo Gallery and mark your calendars now for the Photo Show at Brendan's which will run from March 7 to April 3. The opening reception is Saturday, March 9.

WHO WE ARE

We are self-supported missioners – we’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit - and we’ve lived with the local people in Kenya for the past fourteen summers.

We’ve spent time with young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to school. It is our hope that these graduates will get good jobs - and that they will in turn help to raise other at-risk children out of their poverty.

OUR CAUSES

Since 2005 we have been raising money for the education of children and young people and providing counseling and emotional support to them. Some are still in primary and secondary schools. Others have graduated and gone on to universities or vocational schools. The need continues.

We are also involved in various ways with a number of schools and other organizations in Kenya.
