Working to help empower women, save children and fight poverty in Kenya, we are transformed and inspired by the people we meet. These are our stories.
Coming “home” to Kinangop, the high country plateau where our h.o.w? Ministry widows live, is always a happy affair as team members who have been before are reunited with the women and children who have won their hearts, and new team members are quickly surrounded and embraced.
Nine people from h.o.w? Ministry have arrived in Kenya for a two-week mission trip, including three mother-daughter teams, two others who are mothers, and another who is a daughter working together to help empower women, save children, and raise families out of poverty.
More than 100 supporters gathered on beautiful sunny Saturday morning May 7, 2016, for the annual h.o.w? Ministry 5K Run/Walk for “The Least of These”
Plan now to participate in our annual 5K run/walk for “the least of these” to help fund our missions. Our 2016 event is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, at LaCroix Church.
We’re expanding thanks to the generosity of donors and numbers that line up perfectly with God’s plan. God often steps in when you take a leap of faith.
CuCu, the oldest of the h.o.w? widows and one the funniest, too, is hospitalized, and we are glad to hear she is improving.
Play dominated Day 2 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016, as the widows and mission trip participants split into teams to play a business game led by two guest speakers, then took a break on the playground to enjoy the swings, a slide and some basketball.
Day 1 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference began in the evening Jan. 6, 2016, as the h.o.w? Ministry widows arrived at the tented Camp Chemi Chemi in the Ngong Hills overlooking Nairobi after a 2-hour bus ride from their homes in the Kinangop high plateau countryside. It began with hugs, songs and tea, and continued with each widow sharing a story about what she has learned and accomplished since last we met.
Our in-country coordinator Keziah Murugi shares our big news! H.o.w? Ministry is now a registered limited company in Kenya! This allows us to purchase land in our name, and is the springboard for our fundraising to purchase 8 acres of land in Naivasha.
Help us purchase 8 acres in Naivasha to expand our vision with a calling for a vocational school and life skills training center, guest house, gift shop and poultry farm in addition to providing our widows with a larger place to gather for worship, fellowship and handiwork. A generous donor is matching up to $30,000 in donations this month!
Join us for an open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at the h.o.w? Ministry headquarters, 465 Bristle Ridge in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
The students at Children’s Garden in Nairobi surprised Kristen Kimball with a video this morning on day 3 of her 72-hour race to raise funds for our Clean Water Initiative.
