Due to the Covid19 our trip has been postponed several times! We are trusting God to work it out in His perfect timing! Our current dates for the trip are:
June 9 – June 21 (In Kenya June 10-20). Hope you will join us!

Good afternoon. My wife reminded me of this trip (she had seen something from the EagleBrook facebook site a couple of weeks ago). I’ve had the opportunity to go to Kenya several times in the past via First Baptist Church/Autumn Ridge in Rochester, MN to work with an organization in Kenya (Kenya Hope). How many people are going on your trip and how many slots are you trying to fill? This is pretty short notice for me (and you as well!), but I thought I’d check. Its been 10+ years since I’ve been over there, but the type of trip is very similar to the ones I’ve done in the past (mixture of construction, VBS, etc). Also, do you go over once a year (assuming no issues with COVID and no political issues in Kenya)?
