UPDATED 10.22.07 – Bungoma 2008 Blog
Pretty exciting news from Tiffany Flaming, MBCC Worship Arts Coordinator, Pop Culture Diva, Flying Lessons Blogger, and all-around good person.
Good Evening – as many of you know, I had the privilege of traveling to Bungoma, Kenya in the summer of 2001 with the music school of GGBTS. Since my visit there, I’ve been in contact with my students there and they have begun a ministry to try to meet the needs of the children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS.
I’m pleased to announce that Mission Bay Community Church will be taking a team of folks back to Bungoma next summer to help with the next steps of developing that ministry. I’m writing to all of you because, while this is a trip that MBCC is coordinating, it is open to any and all who want to be a part. There are many things to be taken care of for a trip of this magnitude and as they say, many hands make light work.
My first priority would be to have a prayer team on board. I’d like to at least have folks commit to be in prayer for those of us who are going, the people there, and for our travels.
I anticipate the trip being about 2 weeks and the costs to be around $3,000 – $4,000 per person. That’s a lot of money, I know, but we will be involved in a lot of fund-raising efforts and we’ll need help on that as well.
It’s a lot to do and we’re all quite busy, but whatever help you could contribute would be most appreciated. And if you want to go, all the better. If you know someone who might be interested in this, by all means forward it on.
Thanks for your prayers and support and I hope to see you all soon.
