Honeymoon on a Mission

Jaymie and Chris Grammer’s wedding looked like a page from a magazine. The September afternoon sunlight filtered through the windows as they took their vows and then danced with friends and family. They toasted to their future and hugged their guests - and then went home to pack duffels with medical supplies, soccer balls and school supplies. Their honeymoon destination? A mission trip to Kenya with Orphan Outreach.

Why Mission Trips

My first trip to Guatemala almost 14 years ago was an eye-opening experience into Latin America. I remember thinking how beautiful a country, yet such a complex history. The challenges the people of Guatemala faced were overwhelming. One of our first meetings was with missionaries to find out which orphanages might need our help. The government orphanage in Antigua was discussed, and we were told not to go there because the care was horrible and girls were being raped and abused. I remember thinking, “That is exactly where we need to go.”

For one high schooler, returning to Honduras is all about Love

John 13:34-35:  A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

The Hope You Give Immaculate

Immaculate’s father abandoned her long ago, and her fragile body wars against a rare disorder. But she’s learning about God’s love in the slums of Nairobi because of you. 

Helping Families Grow Strong in Bungoma

A sound grows in the distance as children play in the yard near the kitchen at Madeleine School. Rarely is there any noise on the rutted roads other than the voices of the villagers as they walk to their homes or to the sugar cane fields to work. The hum of the motorbike is a joyful disruption as it turns into the entrance; the students rush to the gate to welcome Miss Elizabeth. She has become a welcome presence at the school since her first visit in September.

Jubilee Family Team Update

Day 3- First day to visit Jubilee School: What I did not see today was luxury cars, manicured lawns or nice houses.  What I did not see today was an orderly drop off line, perfectly clean and pressed uniforms, or a beautiful campus.  No frantic stay at home moms or professional dads.
