Heading to Kenya, Africa in November 2014
I am so excited! At the time I write this, our team is preparing to head to Africa in just a few months. I have been on several other mission trips, and every one of them have been inspiring, rewarding, and challenging in different ways. Everyone one of them has been well worth the journey, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to go on these trips. A group of kids from the mission we’re partnering with on this journey was at our church in Miamisburg, OH last year. And, I just learned that the Daraja choir will be back at MCC on Friday, 11/7. Check out this video:
On this trip, we will have the opportunity to:
- Help build a water tower for the community
- Work on some physical improvements in the local school
- Teach in the local schools on the topics of character and integrity
- Assist with healthcare needs
- Learn about / encourage people in micro-enterprise
- Share the love of Jesus with the community, and join them in worship
I am still in need of financial support. I’m posting this and sharing it with all of you to ask for your prayerful consideration in making a donation towards this trip. A long time ago, our pastor posed the question of “why can’t you go?” and I realized I didn’t have a good answer. That was back in 2005, and I’ve been going ever since. It is a blessing for me to serve on these trips, even though I sorely miss my family while we’re apart. One day, we’ll all be doing missions together. For the Kenya trip, I need to have over $3K which will cover our travel, housing, building materials, gifts, and other expenses for the trip. Can you help me?
If you are so inclined, simply click on the logo to the left to make an online donation. Just be sure to select my name from the drop-down, enter the amount of your donation, and complete the form. If you prefer to mail in a donation, send me an e-mail and I’ll send you the form that you can print off and mail in along with a check.
Here’s a link to all the Google Group I set up with all the various updates I’ve sent in recent months: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/shaunwo-missions-support. Odds are you are already part of that Google Group. If not, feel free to sign up!
As the trip draws closer, I will be asking for prayer support as well for the team and I during the time we’re away from our families. But right now, I need to focus on raising the funds for the trip, and hope that you’ll be able to help.

I am a self-taught web developer which has flourished into a good career, and today my focus is mostly on online marketing, project management, social media, HTML5, CSS3, and OOP PHP. I'm always reading a variety of things that will continue to feed my passions: online marketing, relationships, church leadership, and my own walk with Christ.
I've found the key to happiness (and survival) for me is to be well organized and structured so that I can do a 'good job' at everything. But one of these days I'm going to be able to withdraw from everything else and just spend my days w/ God, Gaby, family and friends.
