Mission Update from Kenya

Dear Family & Friends,

We are excited to share about MOHI’s newest program called “Ignite.” Ignite is a monthly conference for students in grades 6 through 8. The goal is to allow them to go deeper into God’s Word, connect them to each other and MOHI staff.


This year’s theme is “Anchored in Christ.” Each half-day conference features a keynote speaker from MOHI staff and other invited guests; small group discussions about age-appropriate topics (gossip, identity in Christ, and connecting with a local church); corporate praise and worship; and fellowship time during breakfast and lunch.


The monthly conference currently takes place at four different locations throughout Mathare slums including Outreach Hope Church Pangani, the church that Krystal and I attend. Chris is scheduled to lead a small group discussion at the Pangani location in October. We are excited about this new tool for outreach and pray that conference attendees will get connected to the Pangani congregation and be encouraged to come on Sunday mornings. In July, approximately 1,649 students attended the conference!

Please join us in praying for the future of this program, the new believers and all those involved.

Chris & Krystal
