Since 1987, Burke Presbyterian Church and Kibwezi Bethel Church have built a partnership based upon mutual trust, faith and respect. Since the churches have much to give each other and Jesus calls us to love one another — through letters and visits, we developed a list of ways we could assist one another in achieving God’s purpose.
In East Africa where educational opportunity is limited, The Presbyterian Church of East Africa has made the church and the vocational school a primary mission focus in this arid land of subsistence farming and survival living. We have joined them in providing resources.
Also, we provide financial assistance, guidance and prayer for the Burke/Kibwezi Tumaini Orphan Care Program, which assists orphaned children where they are now living and provides “rescue” support if existing living conditions are inadequate or unsafe.
You can become involved in this important partnership!
Involvement can be as basic as remembering our partners in prayer, making a donation, sponsoring a program or work camp participant, or as enriching and life-changing as participating in the summer work camp experience every three years in Kibwezi, Kenya, East Africa.
