Catholics in Action (CIA) is an opportunity for high school youth to serve Iowa in a faith filled environment. This event is a 3-day service retreat, usually held in the Iowa City area, serving impoverished families and those in need.
Construction was started on a home for Mwenda. This man’s mud hut you will see in the slides along with the new construction. Through the generosity of a family from St. Mary’s, Oskaloosa, we were able to invest in the local economy there by hiring the local people and buying local resources to build Mwenda a wood home. In two years, we hope to meet Mwenda and visit his new home! Praise God for generous hearts!
TAKE A LOOK AT CONSTRUCTION!!
PRAYERS FOR KENYA!
We are headed to Kenya in 2015! Please pray for safe travels and safety while serving! During this mission we will build a house for Julia, work in the local orphanage, and meet people throughout the village. In addition, we will visit the local clinic, the schools, and diocese. Just a few months before 25 missionaries embark on a Godly adventure!
