Each year in December, Fox River Christian Church focuses on International Missions and highlights what God is doing through partnerships in Kenya and Nicaragua. The challenge is to remember that Christmas is Jesus' birthday and to give a gift to Jesus by meeting physical needs of those for whom there is no help or hope.
LA ESMERALDA, NICARAGUA is in the mountains and even basic healthcare is hours away. In partnering with the church in this community, God has given us the privilege to build a medical clinic staffed with a doctor, nurse and pharmacist. This clinic has over 10,000 patient visits in a year and serves many communities on the mountain. The sports ministry reaches about 70 young men in the community through structured sporting events. Both ministries are meeting real physical needs in hopes to open the door to share the good news of Jesus Christ. In 2016, we celebrated the clinic's 5-year anniversary.
BOMANI & VIPINGO, KENYA are 2 communities north of Mombasa in which Fox River sponsors a church, school and nutrition center. the greatest need in these communities is for education that breaks the cycle of poverty. There are 850 children from age 3 to high school that receive an excellent Christian education, 2 meals a day on school days, uniforms, all school supplies and basic healthcare that includes health education. This year marks 10 years since we began this journey in these communities. It is incredible to see how these ministries have changed lives, family and the entire community!
