As we strive here to create the infrastructure necessary for the self-sufficient communities there are daily needs for assistance with food and water, healthcare, education, orphan and vulnerable children care, agriculture programs, Bible/Discipleship Training and church leadership development. Living in the midst of all this, we try to assess best how to use every dollar in the most effective way. Nevertheless, at any time you can direct your funds to a project of your choice.
Bibles for New Believers
God’s Word in Kiswahili
Most believers in Kenya do not own their own copy of the Bible in their own language. If we want people to trust in Jesus and to grow as disciples, it is important for them to have a personal copy of His Word to study at home. To give a Bible is to give a gift that will bring eternal returns. Each Bible only costs $10.
Suggested gift: $10
Train and Equip a Pastor/Leader
Train and Equip a Pastor Evangelist
The goal of Light of Hope Missions is to build up the body of Christ while we meet physical needs in various communities. In order to do that, we partner with two local Bible schools that train pastors. We believe that these local men of God who already know the customs, language and traditions of their village are the most capable person to reach their communities for Christ. The program is a 2 year course load where students learn doctrine, and are taught how to run and grow a church. For $500 you can provide training for a pastor for the whole 2 year course. He will leave Bible school with a deeper understanding of God and the tools to reach people with the truth of God’s love.
Suggested Gift: $500 for 2 year course
Motor Bikes for Pastors/Leaders
Motor Bikes for Pastors
Many pastors walk miles from their home to their churches, to visit church members or to shop in the village center. Many travel by foot to other remote villages to start new works. Light of Hope Missions wishes to help by providing bicycles for these pastors. For $1000, we can provide a motorbike capable of handling the rough terrain and access into remote places where cars cannot access to spread the gospel.
Suggested Gift: $1000
Light of Hope Missions has an on-going commitment to aiding Pastors to acquire land and build simple church buildings. For as little as $5,000 you can help give a permanent place of worship to a rural church in Kenya and Africa. These open air structures are a great starting point for a village congregation who can then raise funds to complete the buildings and have real ownership of the final result.
Suggested Gift: $5,000
