Update on Turkana

In Turkana County, Kenya, water is scarce. When Hope Church partnered with Bright Hope International to dig a well and start a drip irrigation system for Turkana, it not only brought life to the people through access to clean water, but also brought an opportunity to begin farming. Fresh food is hard to come by and quite expensive in that area. Before they could grow their own food, the people of Turkana were vulnerable to price hikes—such as a recent tripling in the price of tomatoes. But they have started tomato plants using the drip irrigation system and recently transplanted them into their fields. Not only will they have fresh food for their families, but they also can earn money by selling some of their crop.
In recent weeks the community has transplanted tomatoes, onions, spinach, kale, watermelon, and cow peas to the fields. They are starting to propagate more tomato plants in the nursery to be transplanted in late spring. They plan to expand and plant fruit trees along the edges of the farm. The farmers and their helpers are working hard and learning a new way of life. Due to life-giving water from the irrigation system, the people of Turkana have hope.

Feed My Starving Children

February 2020 Hope Church hosted its first Feed My Starving Children MobilePack.  With hundreds of Hopers, thousands of pounds of life-giving food was packed, sealed and delivered.  These meals sustain the children that we sponsor in Beaumont, Haiti through Reciprocal Ministries, as well as other food-insecure families around the world.   We look forward to our next MobilePack, scheduled for April 23-24, 2021.
