Project Kenya - Close to my heart.


Psalm 96:3 - "Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does."

I am honored to serve on a the oversight team (labeled a board) for Project Kenya. The Project was established in 2002 with goals to BE JESUS by empowering Nationals to achieve freedom from poverty and disease, to facilitate relationships between Christ’s church around the world through various projects which motivate positive change in social issues, and to glorify God, by serving along side the local church. Reaching out to the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. We have seen God move and bring restoration to many lives.

Through the God given goals above, we have seen and experienced tromendous blessing. The establishing of medical clinics, child sponsorships, educational training, feeding programs, and the regular preaching of the word have seen the local church thrive and grow beyond description. He is an amazing God and as we cling to His words and mandates lives are changed.

Project Kenya is also close to my heart because it is publishing good news in a dark world. To many times we get bogged down in the "religion" and forget we are to be Christ in action. Project Kenya is doing Christ's love in action.

I am also very proud of my mother, Teri Crane, she is the Project founder and director. I have lived a life where mom was a mom, then a minister's wife, then a widow, then a professional administrator, and now I see her living the love of Christ as a foreign missionary. It is hard to have her be so far away, but under the new missionary model, Mom is in the States more than in the past missionary models. When she is home she is still just as much a missionary speaking at churches, raising funds, making contacts, and sending emails. So, needles to say, I am very proud to have a mom that is such an example of Jesus to me, to my family, and her grandchildren.

May each of us publish the good things God is doing and call everyone to a restored and renewed relationship with Jesus. For more information on Project Kenya click on Project Kenya or email Teri at medimangr@aol.com.

You know I love ya - Don
