Seje, Kenya

A team of 5 members from Hillside Community Church traveled to Kenya in Oct 2015. The team developed a 4 acres self-sustaining community garden and a women’s sewing group. They also reviewed many past projects they have developed in the area including the Bar Olengo dispensary, Double-digging market gardens, Women’s microfinance co-op, bicycle repair enterprises, and local schools, as well as visited the many widows, orphans, and pastors they have developed relationships with over the past number of years.

"The widows who are in extreme poverty share what they get with their neighbours & community. This is something that has touched my heart very much as it is not about 'me' but 'my neighbour'—a valuable lesson to learn."

Boro, Kenya

Leaving early October a group of eight adventurers from Hillside Community Church headed to Kenya for a two week safari (that means journey in Swahili) to the district of Boro. Most of this team had been before and were looking forward to reconnecting with the people, not to mention seeing the changes to the area since their last visit.

The team was led by Dan and Jen along with HFL leader Jackie Edinborough. The purpose of the trip was to assist in building a church structure in Boro to replace the current mud one; to provide medical and basic eye clinic care to the community; to assist with farm preparation; to repeat the ever-popular sports day, and to continue to develop relationships with the community.

"[One highlight I experienced on this trip was] dealing with team differences without absorbing tension and the joy of the children."
