Mission to Kenya with FFP

Come and Hear the Amazing story of our Mission work in Mathare North! 

Saturday, September 15th, 6:30 pm, Erdman Room.

For the past six years, the Presbyterian Church in Morristown has been working with the Foundation for Peace to rebuild the Living Word Church and Community Center in Mathare North, Nairobi, Kenya. The project is nearing completion, but there is still a need for additional resources to help finish the job.

Johnstone, an officer of the Living Word Church who distributes Bibles in over 200 languages to Kenyan residents, will be here to tell us the inspiring story of how this slum area of Nairobi is being transformed with the love and commitment of local citizens working with mission groups such as our own.

Light refreshments will be provided. Free will donations to support the project made out to Foundation for Peace, with Mathare North project in the memo line, will be accepted.

Email Beverly Tignor for any questions or additional information.

Foundation for Peace

In 2007, the Foundation for Peace began working hand-in-hand (mkono kwa mkono) with different organizations in Nairobi, Kenya.

The FFP helped to build a school building for the ByGrace children’s home, allowing for 125 more children to attend as part of ongoing work with the ByGrace Trust, in support of the ByGrace Academy. With ByGrace help, FFP is able to branch out to different parts of Nairobi in need of aid.

The LivingWord Church parnters with FFP to create jobs and provide services for the community, such as free medical care for hundreds of HIV/AIDS patients. FFP helped LivingWord construct a larger church to be used as a place to provide more services to the people of Nairobi.

Please help by donating either your time or money. Contact: Ken

Project Hope

Each year, PCM collects supplies for FFP to be used in a medical clinic in the Mathare North Slum, for volunteer care-givers to provide to Kenyans with AIDS and for children in the DR, Haiti and Kenya. Needs cover the gambit from furniture and vehicles to HIV/AIDS caregiver kits to backpacks with school supplies and clothing.
