December 2019 Updates


Our Dessert Social & Fundraiser for 2019 Was a Success, Thanks to you!

On November 22nd & 23rd, we had two separate Dessert Social & Fundraiser events happen in the Guelph area and in the London area. These events involved a time of fellowship, worship and an intimate look into some of our key projects in Guatemala, Peru & Kenya. Our special guests included our missionaries Juan Pablo & Carolina from Guatemala; Rodolfo & Saraid from Iquitos Peru; Pastor Ishmael & Molline from Kenya; as well as Mathew Collins who shared about his story and the ministry in Puerto Maldonado Peru that is in dedication to Tatiana Blackburn who tragically passed in 2018. We also enjoyed a time of worship through music by Mathew and Michael Degazio.

At the Guelph event, there was a Silent Auction Table where all items were sold! Thank you to all of our generous Silent Auction Donors who are listed below. All proceeds raised through the silent auction will support these projects in Guatemala, Peru & Kenya. We hope that the atmosphere and presentations during both nights encouraged individuals to get involved and make an impact in our world!

We would like to say Thank You to all of our Sponsors, Donors & Volunteers for making these events a success!

Peacemaking Initiatives To Resolve Tribal Conflict

We are so grateful to Nigerian Ph.D. Dr. Dorcas Ettang, a Senior Lecturer in Conflict Transformation and Peace Studies Programme at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, for willing to provide solutions to some of the challenges KEDHAP is facing in their tribal peacemaking initiatives.

The event was held online on April 29, 2023. The audio recording is available in this blog post.

Be a Virtual Mother to a Vulnerable Child!

As we approach Mother’s Day, let us take a moment to reflect on the incredible role that mothers play in our lives. They are our caregivers, our teachers, and our biggest supporters. Unfortunately, not all children are blessed to have mothers or mother figures in their lives.

This Mother’s Day, would you like to change a child’s life by filling it with hope? Love starts with YOU!
