WellSpring Church Ministries
Wellspring in the Streets- Oklahoma City, OK
Missionary: Pastor Donna
I often hear people say a mission trip will change your life. I’m not so sure a mission trip will but God sure can.
This mission to Kenya has been different than any other. Everything is changing. In some ways it was expected yet still unexpected. No matter how much God has placed dreams in our hearts, or prepared us, or moved on our behalf, change though exciting can still be a scary and shaky process. Recent sudden life changes have made me hold Jesus close. As he holds me I remember he has never let me fall.
I lost both my parents in a short time this winter. It was difficult to see them go but God is healing my heart. I will be moving to Cottonwood Arizona soon to assist with Wellsprings Church Ministries and as a home base for missions.
This year I will begin the process of building a house in Kenya where I expect to live about 1/2 the year. This has been on my heart for a long time, but the time and place were never right until now.
The ministry I will be involved with under the covering of Wellsprings houses 1800 orphans and provides schooling. They help support widows who provide a home environment for orphaned children. They also help them with small business start ups. They have planted many churches across Kenya and have a calling to the Muslims. Providing a safe haven for many who have converted to Christianity and plan to build a Muslim rescue center soon. This will allow them to embrace Christianity without the imminent risk of death. The location of my house will be on the Uganda / Kenya border providing me easier access to ministry in Uganda and Tanzania.
To do this I will not only need to raise support but also embrace the technology I’ve resisted. If you would like short monthly updates via email let me know. I’m still fond of snail mail so I’ll be sending quarterly updates by mail.
I’ve learned not to apologize for asking for support. But also let me say if your not able to or impressed upon to give financially I still value your support and interest. If you’re on my mailing list that means you are special to me. I love each one of you and as I address envelopes and send out reports remembering each of you I feel so blessed.
Let me know if you would like email updates.
