The Rachel Project will include both humanitarian and church ministry outreach. Our humanitarian project will include building local rural health clinics and wells in rural Kenya. This will help to earn the opportunity to be heard as well as doing something that was close to our Lord, meeting the physical needs of the poor and to children (Matt. 10:42). We will accomplish this through an NGO (non-government organization). We already have land that is waiting to be donated so that we can build our first clinic/well location.
Ministry side of Project Rachel will be a ministry training center. We are experienced in this ministry as this was the focus of our ministry while we served in Kenya. This will include Pastor and local church worker training, training conferences and seminars, mission trips in Kenya with both local nationals and from the USA. Our ministry will focus on Kenyan church leaders leading in our ministry. One such leader is Charles Juma who we met in Kenya in 1995. Charles is finishing his research papers for his doctorate at South Seminary in Louisville, KY. Charles Juma is well known and supported by Pastor Russell Howard.
The best tools God has to reach Africans are Africans. We will assist the national church to grow strong in areas where they need help so they can more effectively reach Kenya for God.
We will also continue our ongoing ministry of assisting select pastors and medical students with school fees.
