Kenya Community Service Day 

Our 410 Bridge team in Kenya held their first-ever Community Service Day on April 8th in the community of Tumutumu. This was a special time for the 410 Bridge staff to give back to the community, bond with the local Leadership Council, and create lasting relationships with the community members.  

The 410 Bridge team first distributed and helped plant avocado seedlings to over 1,200 households in the community. They encourage the community to plant more avocado fruit as it is gaining popularity not only locally but also for export. This is an exciting opportunity for these families!

The team also planted seedlings at Tumutumu Primary School, a 410 Bridge Foundations for Farming Training demonstration farm, and a community church. Next, the team joined community members in dedicating Mzee Kabinga’s new house. The Tumutumu Church Leaders Fellowship had been assisting him with meeting some of his basic needs and now, through 410 Bridge, built him a new house since his old house was in such disrepair. This was a big blessing to the respected 80-year-old man who still farms in the community.  

Please join us in continuing to pray for the community of Tumutumu as well as our amazing 410 Bridge staff in Kenya! Their passion for the Lord and their country of Kenya is to be admired.

Serving with Joy: A Week in Mutirithia, Kenya

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Kenya, allow me to do my best to try to put into words what an incredible life-changing experience that you really need to do at least once in your life. 

I was recently blessed to travel to Mutirithia, Kenya with an amazing group of 20 other Christian men to serve the families in that community over the course of a week. 

We prepared for weeks to make sure everyone understood the primary objective of the trip, which was to build upon relationships already formed in the community and to spread the Word to as many people as we could. 

Allow me to unfold a day-by-day glimpse of what we experienced:
