Journey Thoughts: Luke Cummings


It’s hard to try and sum up all that has happened in the past few weeks here in Kenya.

So far the Lord has been teaching me so much every single day and it’s been a blast. Being able to dive head first into the Lord’s will alongside 20 plus people who love Jesus so passionately has been a huge encouragement.

It has also been extremely encouraging to just spend time with our new friends from Kenya that are so on fire for the Lord. When introducing themselves, one of the first things they inform you of is that they love Christ and have been saved by Him. Hearing people who are not at all ashamed to proclaim the name of Jesus from the first second of meeting someone new has been one of the coolest things to see.

One thing the Lord has continued to reveal to me since Journey started is that His goodness is so consistent even in moments that seem so insignificant. Whether I am teaching and playing with children, being taught by our leaders, or just playing cards with my teammates, the Lord is constantly being intentional with me and His love never changes. I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for the rest of our time here!

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.

Learnings From Kiu, Kenya

Our partnership with Kiu community started way back in 2009 making it one of the first communities to partner with the 410 Bridge since its inception in Kenya in 2006. 

At the 410 Bridge, we work through the community leaders who ensure continuity of the community’s development even after graduation. During our partnership journey, we walk alongside indigenous community leaders and church leaders as they mobilize and unify the community to participate in their own development – shifting their perspectives and owning the solutions.
