There was record flooding in the region around the Lord’s Servants Home (LSH) in Kenya in 2022. Two of the three bridges used to cross a creek and ravine from one side of the community to the other were made of wood and washed away. The 3rd bridge was constructed of steel and concrete in a joint project between Mission Servants Ministry (MSM) and the community in 2020 and had some repairable damage but survived well.
The community requested of the Mission Team and MSM to join in a project to build a durable steel and concrete bridge again to replace the ones washed away and allow school kids to safely reach the Bridgeway Hope Academy (BHA) on the grounds of LSH as well as general travel within the community. Meetings with the community leaders yielded a bridge design, budget, and commitment from dozens of people to participate in the construction. They attacked it with a passion and quickly completed the bridge which benefits all. Helping others help themselves is good help. Community projects that grow out of mission work is a great way to show more people the Love of Jesus Christ in a practical way. People will want to get to know that Jesus Christ as a start to a relationship.
MSM provided funding for all the materials. Pastor Ken provided the construction experience and leadership. The community provided the labor and food for those working.
The best projects start with a prayer!….
