Update on Kenya Mission

Updated Apr. 20, 2022

Our Mission Team has arrived safely at Tenwek, Kenya, and has begun its service at Mustard Seed House. This OSWLC-supported ministry provides accommodation and distinctly Christian care to sick children and their families who travel for treatment at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya.

The team members (Cathy O’Meara, Carrianne Joback, and Jacob Fraher) have certainly hit the ground running! On their first full day at Tenwek, they hosted 75+ Mustard Seed House stakeholders for lunch to share more about the newly acquired property and plans for the construction of a permanent facility (the current house is rented). Then, they gathered at the future building location to dedicate the newly acquired property to the Glory of God. The group planted trees to mark this new beginning, prayed over the land, and asked for God’s continued provision.

On Easter Sunday, the team spent the day getting to know the children and families at Mustard Seed House. They purchased the food for a celebratory Easter meal and had the opportunity to pray, sing, and read scripture with a jam-packed house of people facing incredible hardship due to sickness and poverty.

This week, they are working to clean and furnish three additional bedrooms to help increase the capacity of this ministry to serve more sick and suffering children.

Please continue to pray for them as they serve at Mustard Seed House in Kenya this week!

Jacob Fraher and the mission team departed for Kenya on Wednesday, April 5th in the afternoon. In addition to their own luggage, they had three suitcases filled with diaper supplies. Praise the Lord! The total tally of items collected was incredible!

· 410 prefold diapers · 240 inserts
· 174 covers · 140 fasteners
· 46 wet bags  

Your donations were enough to provide diaper kits to 93 children. There were more than our team could carry, and we will transport the remaining supplies to Kenya in August.

Please continue to pray for the mission team serving in Kenya and for Mustard Seed House.
