And the glory of the Lord will be revealed.

As we draw near to the end of this first day of December – a month that holds so much HOPE for us who believe – we are in AWE.

You see, today was a day specifically designated – #GivingTuesday it’s named – the day following our nation’s popular shopping holidays… and to honestly admit, we weren’t quite sure if anyone would be up for participation. BUT GOD… He put a request on our hearts, a really simple one, that came at the last minute to us, yet not to Him. He knew long before that it would be a day of faith building for The 410 Bridge in this season of year end giving, especially as we prepare to enter our TENTH year of ministry.

Our goal to raise $25,000 today has simply been to serve as invitation for all of us. To come TOGETHER on this day, and celebrate all that God is doing through The 410 Bridge in the U.S., Kenya, Haiti and Uganda. We wanted to inspire people to give out of a heart of cheerfulness, and set a goal to encourage us all as we join forces to deepen our impact in the 42 communities where we serve.

UPDATE: as of December 1, just before midnight, our goal was exceeded by generous donors who gave a total of $25,280!

This goal is also being matched one for one – meaning it will be doubled!

Tonight, as we end this day of excitement and joy to watch God show UP through His people – YOU – we are humbled, grateful, encouraged on this journey, and most of all AMAZED at His faithfulness. You’ve come alongside us and put a fresh wind in our sails – to believe God for the immeasurably more, and to taste and see His goodness. We don’t know how in the world we’ll ever thank you enough, but we intend to thank God for your gifts daily, and pray they will be multiplied over and over. We trust that they will.

What a beautiful way to enter this season of Advent and Christmas – we will continue to thank God in advance for His unexpected blessings.

We love you, friends. Know that we are thankful and glad you’re on this journey with us. Today we stand TOGETHER as one in Christ – and His glory is being revealed because of it.

“For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.” [2 Corinthians 8:12]

Whatever amount you were able to give today, we know God sees your willingness, and He loves a cheerful giver.

If you’d like to be a part of today’s #GivingTuesday, there is still time:

Why Come on a Mission Trip to Kenya?  

A mission trip is not just a one-week experience to check a box. An intentional mission trip that is outcome-driven provides an opportunity to bring out Philippians 2:2-11 for the restoration of dignity and fulfilling purpose so that people can walk in freedom. 

A mission trip, The 410 Way, is a catalyst that can propel us into action by changing our perspective of how we view the world, how we view our  world.

My Journey to Kahuria

I’ve always asked “Why is Kenya so different?”  “What makes it so special?” 

Being a part of a Global Missions team, I have had the opportunity to help send teams to Kenya but never experience it myself.  The teams always came back bonded and something was different.

One Day At Church

One day at church I felt a calling or a nudge that God wanted me to serve in a different way. I looked through my church’s opportunities and as soon as I saw Kenya I felt a wash of joy flood over me. I applied that day and was overjoyed to hear shortly back that I had been accepted to go. Our church gave us the book “If You Really Want To Help” and from there I fell in love with what 410 was doing for the people of Kenya, especially after reading the story of Chris in Kahuria.
