Monthly Special Mission Projects
Each month, we collect donations for a different mission project. An example of these projects is our connection with Living Hope High School in Bungoma, Kenya, where we sponsor two students. (Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we cannot mail packages there at this time, but we can still transfer funds to the high school for purchases in Bungoma.)
