Dear Trip Participant,

Sometimes we hear the older saints talk about “the good old days.”  It seems to bring up pictures of warm memories, when life was a little less hectic and families were closer.  As we look around at the condition of our world, the wars and tense conditions that just seem to be getting worse and worse, it is easy for all of us to long for “the good old days.”  But the essence of our journey with Christ is that day by day we are being transformed into His image.  As we gaze into His face, we begin to think His thoughts and desire what He desires.  Our Bridegroom is not looking back, but looking forward with great longing to the end of the age and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.  As that time approaches, we know that conditions on this earth will get worse and worse.  As we see that time draw near, Jesus tells us to “lift up our eyes, for our redemption draws near.”

AOF is pleased to invite you on a journey that is designed to help you “look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.” (II Peter 3:12)  We are on the mission to see to it that every tribe, tongue, kindred and nation has had a chance to hear the Gospel so that the end may come. (Matt 24:14)  We will be returning to Kenya this year to strengthen the work that was begun there 10 years ago, and to reach out and explore partnerships in new areas.  We invite you to come and join with us as we partner with others to advance His Kingdom to the ends of the earth.  There are a number of different opportunities to choose from for this year’s trip.  Please read the following information carefully and let the Lord guide you as to which portion of the trip He wants you to participate in.  Pay close attention to the deadlines and due dates for the option you choose.
Below you will find the preliminary details and enough information for you to start getting ready.  Please read it very carefully, as this letter contains much information.  It may not all apply to you.  Please note that you have several options to choose from. They are as follows:

We would like to invite you to be a part of the Kenya Outreach Team.  This letter includes the preliminary details and enough information for you to start getting ready.  As soon as we receive your completed trip application form and application fee, we will take care of setting up all the other arrangements for you.  The only part of the trip you will be responsible for planning will be your travel arrangements in getting from your home to Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta.  You must plan to arrive at the international airport in enough time to catch your connecting flight out of the country.  Remember that check-in time for an international flight is at least three hours before scheduled departure.  You will also be responsible for arranging your return flight from Hartsfield airport to your home when you return.

Please understand that this is a mission trip.  It is not a vacation or a leisure trip.  You will be working very hard, and the accommodations may not be what you are used to at home.  We ask you to accept whatever conditions confront you with grace, good humor and the love of Jesus.  Your coming will be such a blessing to those to whom you minister.  These brothers and sisters work in extremely difficult conditions and having a visit from Americans does so much to lift their burden and ease their sense of isolation.  Just your presence reminds them that God has not forgotten their labor of love, and they are not alone.

As soon as we receive your application forms, along with the $100.00/per person application fee, we will send you a more personalized package that will cover your part of the trip.  It will include suggested items to take with you, some useful Swahili phrases,  general information about the country, suggestions on appropriate attire for both men and women, and some cultural do’s and don’ts.

The costs listed in this letter do not include the following:

  • Passport

  • Immunizations

  • Air or ground fare to Atlanta

  • Souvenirs or personal items

The above fees must be received in the AOF office by the stated dates.  Checks should be made payable to AOF Missions, Inc.

God bless you.  We look forward to serving the Lord with you in Kenya this summer. 

Together for the Kingdom’s Advance,

Dr. Peggy A. Rayman
President
