Builidng on a 40 year history, Kenya GP students (including NURSING STUDENTS) will experience first-hand what God is up to in this beautifully diverse and complex part of God’s world. Students have benefited from this GP by becoming MORE in love with God and His world; MORE dependent on God in prayer; MORE confident in speaking from God’s Word; and MORE bold in sharing their faith with others. Many students have been able to get independent study or internship CREDIT from their participation in this GP. The multitude of experiences on this GP also reflect well when applying for JOBS and GRADUATE PROGRAMS.
After a week of orientation, students will travel to ministry sites (2+ weeks)which will include living with Kenyan families and working alongside churches, teaching in schools and/or serving in orphanages--and (for nursing students) serving in hospitals. The final 2 weeks will include team service in slums of Nairobi and an introduction to Hindu and Muslim outreach, followed by debriefing and re-entry training.
