I was able to visit the city of Nakuru, Kenya in May/June of 2016 and God revealed to us it's beauty. A place that the United States of America may deem impoverished and underdeveloped, God gave eyes to see and to serve in His glory in sharing what He saw in Nakuru. God revealed a city where those "who are poor in the worlds eyes are rich in faith," James 2:5

Our friend Devon Legare previously attended NHC before feeling Gods call to move out to Kenya long-term 2 years ago. Our mindset was to go out there to serve cross-culturally for 10 days and see why our friend Devon committed to moving 8,000 miles across the world, leaving her home and loved ones behind. The problem is that we did not expect our hearts to become intertwined into the people, culture, and nation of Kenya. 

During our 10 days in Nakuru, Kenya, we worked with Pink Elephant; non-profit dedicated to connecting teachers on a global scale to share knowledge and resources with one another with an emphasis on empowering teachers and students in impoverished communities, and to increase access to quality education. We created a Pink elephant sponsored event at the Pangani Special School and poured into teachers, Gods word and wisdom to encourage them to live out their callings in unity and love. The Pangani Special School is specifically for special needs children, who are considered the outcasts of society and the lowest of lows. Specials needs is taboo in Kenyan culture, and being able to feed, teach, and love on these children reminded us of Matthew 25:31-46 and James 1:27.  We also had the unique privilege of traveling to the remote village of Pokot and going from school to school sharing the gospel and pouring into little children, many of whom still practice tribal customs such as Female Genital Mutilation. 

Our time in Nakuru also consisted of working with Nathan Hall Williams Center, a non-profit that aids in the prevention and rehabilitation of children with special needs. Combining NHWC and Pink Elephant together, we got to witnessed firsthand Early Intervention (which is brand new to Kenya) going into the poorest neighborhoods and providing therapy to children with special needs. 

 God has called us to go back Nakuru and leave behind our family, friends, and full-time jobs as well as the comforts of the American society to be his hands and feet to the least of these for 11 weeks We WILL sacrifice these things because they are worthless to us if we are not following Jesus's call on our lives. We are choosing to live out His Words, for His kingdom, for His glory, and for the advancement of the gospel in a city that needs it. 

We KNOW our time at New Hope Chapel has molded us for this upcoming 11 weeks in Kenya. 

We will be serving at a local church called the Trinity Vineyard Nakuru Church (plugging into the children's ministry, young adults ministry and worship team), Pangani Special School (occupational therapy, assisting teachers, feeding children), and Haven of Hope baby home (structure care-taking of toddlers). Above all of this, we strongly desire for God to write His story of the gospel in our hearts and dive deeper into knowing what it means to follow Christ wholeheartedly into tough places. Our lives are worth nothing to us unless we use it for finishing the work assigned to us by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God (Acts 20:24).

Help support us through prayer and financial giving. We are hoping to raise roughly $2660 each: 

Estimated cost for 80 days: 

$780 - Roundtrip Flight 
$400- housing 
$30 - Utilities 
$50  - visa
$100- water 
$800 - food 
$500- transportation/art supplies, books/wifi, toiletries

Thank you, 
Jacqui Skinner

I am officially fully funded!! I did add in an extra $100 to the budget to make it go from $2660 to $2760 to cover the $50 I spent on our church presentation (poster boards, supplies, 400 copies of our support letter). And I added in another $50 to cover some last minutes living necessities for this fall.
