In 2012, God planted a desire to care for orphans in Africa in the hearts of two women at Fellowship of Faith. Over time, that desire spread to others in the congregation and the Kenya Ministry Team was created. Eventually, a partnership was formed with Oasis for Orphans, an organization operating in Southwest Kenya and one with which FOF shares a vision for holistic development and the family model of orphan care. Through our ministry and this partnership, we are assisting Oasis in meeting their long term goal of caring for all of the estimated 110,000 orphaned and vulnerable children in Southwest Kenya.

Serve with the Kenya Ministry Team in 2019 by joining our team (meetings on the second Monday of the month). Walk or run with us as part of Team Oasis during the McHenry River Run on Saturday, July 13, 2019.  Run with Oasis for Orphans in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2019. Volunteer or participate in the annual Kenyan Market at FOF in November, 2019. Sponsor a child or project through Oasis for Orphans. Join Oasis on a short term mission trip to Kenya.

Kenyan Market

Our Kenyan Market returns in November 2019 with brand-new merchandise benefiting a brand-new cause. Proceeds from this year’s Kenyan Market will go to our mission partner, Oasis for Orphans, to provide furnishings for “The Well”, a recently purchased children’s home in Kenya. Help is needed for set-up the day before as well as the market itself. Contact Lynn Overbay at overbays@sbcglobal.net to volunteer.
