It has been a long time since either of us have had the opportunity to serve the Lord overseas. I (Kristina) have had a long-time love for overseas missions, and John has a deep desire to see the local church flourish both domestically and abroad. We have the joy of participating in both things with an upcoming mission trip this summer. We are very excited to partner with a group from Faith Bible Church in Edmond, OK, as we go to Kenya to share the Good News in local villages in the area.
John and I have both watched from afar the past few years as teams have gone out to Kenya, shared the Good News, and watched many coming to a saving relationship in Jesus Christ. The fields of Africa truly are ripe for the harvest! Churches have been planted in those regions and many new believers have been discipled in the faith. What an amazing opportunity John and I now have to join in this eternal endeavor!
Our team will travel to Kombewa, Kenya beginning on May 30th and will return June 11th. We will be joined by a team of translators and will walk through local villages daily, sharing the way of salvation with individuals and families as we go.
We cannot do this without help from our friends and family. Kristina’s parents and good friends have offered to care for Ethan, Karis, and Hudson while we are away – we are so grateful! Most importantly, we need your prayers for our time of preparation, training, and support raising, as well as prayers for the people we will be ministering to and with. We will need prayers for our time there – for protection against disease and dangers and for us to be willing and effective vessels for the Lord’s use.
In addition, we need financial partners willing to help cover the costs for us to get there and to serve. The trip will cost $3500 per person.
The verse the Lord has put before us for this trip is Acts 26:31 “…proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.” We would be so grateful if you would pray about how the Lord would have you partner with us to this end! If the Lord leads you to give financially, please fill out the form at the bottom of this letter and return it in the enclosed envelope. We sincerely appreciate any form of support!
If you have any questions or would like to further discuss this opportunity, please feel free to call us – John (405) 513-0446 or Kristina (972) 467-9964.
In Christ alone,
John and Kristina Frawley
