History of Kenya mission:
The Episcopal Diocese of Kansas announced at convention in 2006 that Kenya would be developed as a site for international mission and join with the national church in addressing the Millennium Development Goals. In July of 2007 a team, consisting of clergy and lay leadership that included Bishop Wolfe, traveled to Kenya to develop future mission projects. Out of this group a task force was formed that became known as “Kansas to Kenya” or simply referred to as “K2K”.
The purpose of our mission to Kenya is:
- to achieve the Millennium Development Goals as part of the national church effort;
- to share our Christian faith with the people of Kenya;
- to engage in conversation with fellow Anglicans.
Since that first team, the Dioceses of Kansas has sent multiple mission teams to Kenya. Members from St. Michael’s have been involved with or supported the medical teams, college student teams and environmental/agricultural teams. Team members have shared their talents and Christian faith with the poor living in Kibera, a slum in the heart of Nairobi,….. to those living in Maai Mahiu, a community on the infamous “AIDS Highway.”
