Kenya Missions: There and Here

DSC03481Christine Simon and Windy Shull are currently in Nairobi, Kenya visiting our partner ministries. Then on July 24th, The Crossing will host The Wallaces, a missionary family who is visiting from our main partner congregation in Nairobi, New City Fellowship. It’s exciting to see God weaving greater connections between The Crossing and our partner ministries in Kenya. Thank God for his work in Kenya and ask him to continue to grow our partnerships there.

Christine & Windy in Nairobi:

Christine and Windy will be in Kenya until July 19th visiting many partner ministries:

  • New City Fellowship Nairobi and other partner churches
  • schools including: Pistis, Racefield, El Shaddai and Christ the Redeemer
  • Huruma orphanage

They have already started delivering the bags decorated during Kids Club. In coming weeks, watch for photos and stories from their trip.

Please pray for Christine and Windy to:

  • Have fun and enjoy one another while blessing those around them.
  • Trust God for all the daily details and all the new things they will encounter.
  • Stay energized and healthy, avoiding any gastric difficulties from food or water.
