A Christ & St. Luke’s Episcopal Mission Journey to Kenya will provide participants a broader understanding of what it is to be a Christian.
Most of us have elected to travel to gain new experiences, to earn long-needed rest, to be pampered, and to immerse ourselves in a new environment or culture. The 22 April to 1 May 2022 excursion to Kenya is an opportunity to take a glimpse at a culture: one rich in beauty but with great needs. This is a witnessing experience that will challenge participants to view, and perhaps rethink, how to best serve as Christians. Curious? Follow this link for additional information.
