Kenya Mission Trip: imbirikani Girls School
VBS, Work Projects and Pastoral Training
July 20-30, 2017
If you are gifted at teaching, using a paintbrush, playing with kids, or pretty much anything else, you can be a blessing on this trip to Kenya. In a remote community in the Maasai Mara region, the HPPC team will conduct a Pastoral Training Conference, assist with a Vacation Bible School, and do some much needed repairs and maintenance at the local Imbirikani Girls School. After a day of rest you will then help build a new church building! You will be blessed by participating in the dedication of this new building. Clyde Jackson, HP Pres member, will lead this team.
For the best rates, please sign up by April 14. After this deadline, the cost of the trip may increase due to airfare.

What will we be doing on the trip?
Based on your skills and interests there are several activities where you will be able to participate:
- Lead or assist with Vacation Bible School for 250 children who eagerly want to learn about Jesus and work along with the local mothers who will help you.
- Teaching in the Christian Growth Seminar for 250 pastors and elders.
- Help with paint and repair projects at the Imbirikani Girls High School
- Work together with Kenyans in constructing a church and a primary school. You can help nail, sweep, or paint as we help complete a new church or school.
What are the accommodations?
We will be staying at the guesthouse on the compound of the Imbirikani Girl’s High School. The accommodations are dormitory style with two or three persons to a room with an attached bathroom. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and safe.
What is the food like?
The guesthouse has a cook that will provide plenty of good food familiar to Westerners and can adjust to most special dietary concerns. There is also plenty of bottled water available everywhere we go.
Will there be any time to do any sightseeing?
In addition to seeing the towns and villages on our drive to and from Imbirikani, you will have the opportunity to add an additional two-day safari trip to the Maasai Mara if you are interested. The cost of the add-on trip is an additional $1,500 per person (approx.).
