Over the past month, Frazer has sent teams to Haiti and Kenya. On our Haiti trip we brought equipment down to do dental work for some of the kids. One of our group members, Dr. Harrell Bullard was our resident dentist as he was assisted by several of our Frazer youth. Our group also helped do some painting and cleaning for a transition house and at the Mission Guest Village. (We also got to sneak in some beach time!) We went with our mission partner Hands and Feet, who care for over 100 orphaned and abandoned children in multiple sights and fight to keep families together through job creation initiatives.
Another team traveled to Kenya to visit several different orphanages. The first stop was at Mescal’s Children Center, which cares for abandoned and vulnerable children. Founder, Ruth Owuor, believes these children will grow up to be strong, productive Christian leaders and greatly impact Kenya for the Kingdom of God. Ruth was a member at Frazer before returning to Kenya and our very own Charlotte Robinson is the President of their board. We had the privilege of playing with the kids and being a part of a dedication ceremony for their new building.
We also made stops at two other orphanages with Project 82 Kenya. We had a fun day eating and playing with some of the older kids and then we visited their infant rescue home, which provides refuge for abandoned babies and seeks local adoptive parents if possible. In-between stops we had the opportunity to worship with our Kenyan brothers and sisters (they even let me preach!) The overall trip was amazing as we built relationships and learned from one another how we can best care for vulnerable children. I’m so thankful to be a part of a church family that has a passion for orphan care!
