Concert attendees will also hear music samplings by Canadian Nancy Telfer and Minnesotans Catherine Dalton, Linda Kachelmeier and Abbie Betinis will be featured – along with traditional and contemporary familiar tunes.

Mission Trip Succeeds in Helping Families in Kenya

Published

Peachtree Corners Baptist missions trip

In July 2018, Peachtree Corners Baptist Church took part in a mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya. Church members traveled there to serve people, including the orphans rescued by The Mully Children’s Family.

The Mully Children’s Family (MCF) in Kenya, founded in 1989, is a Christian-based charitable organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of thousands of children in need — street children, orphans, abandoned, abused, HIV & AIDS affected and infected, desperate and neglected children — regardless of their religion, sex, color or tribe. MCF provides the children with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, spiritual guidance, mentorship and parental love.

Peachtree Corners Baptist Church mission trip
Mike Small

Mike Small, the church’s Missions and Discipleship Pastor, shared a moving experience from the trip. “The mission team went to a village to help a family that lost their father,” he said. “The family hadn’t had any food for four days, and the team brought enough food to feed the family for a month.”

The mother couldn’t work and even struggled to walk due to a problem with her left knee, Small explained. “After she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior, the team prayed over her and asked God to heal her knee and restore her to good health. The Lord answered the team’s prayers and she was healed.”

He said the woman was able to walk without her cane and move about freely, “…and rejoice with the team.” With the help of The Mully Children’s Family, the mission team also rescued one of her children because, unfortunately, she could not afford to take care of him. ■
