Make plans to join us on June 7 for a “virtual” Mission Focus Sunday. We’ll hear from Stu Ross, missionary to Kenya with the Outreach Foundation. Covenant has had a long relationship with Stu, including two mission trips to Kenya over a decade ago. We’ll enjoy a “Moment for Mission” during the worship service for him to give a brief update on the work taking place in Kenya at this time. During the Sunday School hour, we’ll get to hear a longer presentation and have some time for questions and answers.
Stu and Annie Ross serve as The Outreach Foundation’s East Africa Mission Consultants. Based in Kikuyu, Kenya, they are responsible for partnering through the Mission Projects Committee of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (a denomination that is growing by 15% each year) in a ministry of building schools, churches, and girls rescue centers as well as managing water projects. They also arrange for volunteer church groups to come to Kenya and participate in the work of projects that they have helped fund. This gives U.S. churches an opportunity to not only help financially but also to work side-by-side with Kenyan partners. While in the U.S., Stu speaks widely about God’s mission in East Africa, inviting new partners to share in this work.
Stu and Annie link U.S. congregations with East African partners to strengthen the church for God’s mission. Through these efforts, over 300 churches and over 150 schools have been built, hundreds of girls have been cared for and over 500 evangelists have been trained. Recently libraries have been added to several schools in memory of Linda Ross, who greatly advocated for the education of the girl child.
