What we've done...
We are undaunted in our task to make a measurable difference in the lives of those who not only are less fortunate than we are, but are everyday struggling to overcome the effects of abject poverty, the ravages of HIV and AIDS, and few opportunities for a formal education.
Our congregation, through generous donations, support numerous missions efforts in Kenya, East Africa, and
members of our global missions team make routine trips to Kenya so that we can remain cognizant of growth and needs of both new and long established missions.
Through internet and mail, our Global Missions Team maintains frequent contact with a number of pastors at our churches in East Africa and shares the information received with our congregation.
We have established multiple churches in Kenya & Tanzania, Africa, and erected a 400 seat sanctuary that is named Christ Temple Christian Life Center, which is also the Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith, International (PCAFI) Headquarters in East Africa.
PURCHASED LAND & MATERIALS
In addition to purchasing land, we have purchased a PA System with microphones for the sanctuary, instruments, medicine, food, and books, as well as tables and chairs for the schools. Our donations also purchased and built a spring water well on school property. Water backpacks were provided to the students, which allow our children to take fresh water home after school.
We have been instrumental in establishing a number of schools in the region, as well as facilitating the education of over 1,000 impoverished students in our two St. Shelia Joy Academies, which ranked 8th out of 350 schools in the Karamu region.
SPONSORED TEACHERS & STUDENTS
We have paid the annual salaries of school staff personnel, and provided over 700 school children with uniforms, socks, and shoes; as well as provided school supplies for children attending the schools. In addition, programs were instituted, including HIV\AIDS awareness and other education programs. Immunization programs and other health related educational programs have also been established.
