Social Ministry for Your Church – Help AIDS Orphans in Africa (Free Trip to Kenya for your Pastor)

Friends of Mercy wants to take your pastor to Kenya to help AIDS Orphans and meet the elders of the Maasai village. (The Maasai donated 60 acres of land to build a boarding primary school and home for girls fleeing FGM.) A Faith and Mercy Expedition is a program that takes people to Kenya to work with members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya. The kind of work that is done depends upon when the trip is scheduled. It could be anything from fixing walls in an orphanage to assisting nurses in a medical clinic.

Become a Friends of Mercy Sponsor

All we ask is that your congregation becomes a Friends of Mercy Sponsor. When your congregation commits $3,500 to our project in your budget, we will take your pastor to Kenya on a Faith and Mercy Expedition.

Pictured above are three pastors who visited an orphanage in Orthoro. Pictured below is the mud hut in which eight boys lived before the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya built the new orphanage thanks to a grant from our partner, LCMS World Relief.

We encourage members of your congregation to go as well and experience a life changing 11 days. Are you interested in helping AIDS Orphans? Do you know of anyone who desires to help? Pastor Mark Sell (pictured at right) will gladly come to your church and meet with your pastor, your elders, or any person(s) who might be interested in helping.
