Ever since Kim was a little girl, she has had a God given desire to do missions work in Africa. In January of 2008, we were married and eight months later met Chris and Lisa Moore, missionaries to Kenya. It was a divine appointment set in motion by God.
Our first trip to Kenya in March of 2009, messed us up for Christ and gave us a love for the Kenyan people and the ministry of Real 4 Christ: a faith-based, non-profit organization that is committed to reaching East African lives for Christ. They accomplish God’s purpose for the ministry by working with indigenous pastors and their local churches. The ministries consist of evangelism, church planting, feeding programs, education and medicine.
Our challenge every year has revolved around how we could get back to Kenya. God has ALWAYS provided and has allowed us to return multiple times. Currently, we have each made about 10 trips to Kenya. Our goal starting in 2018 is to be in Kenya 4-6 months of the year.
In March of 2016, we committed to give our all to God and get more involved with Real 4 Christ Ministries. We have sold our home and David left his job of nearly 15 years to live by faith and to pursue working with Real 4 Christ full time as the Mission Trips Director and Kim as the Director of the Child Sponsorship Program/Media.
David is responsible for organizing multiple mission trips each year. We will be traveling all over the United States to different churches to train the teams that are going, so that they know what to expect and how to best serve while they are in Kenya. Kim will also help in the team training.
Kim will be presenting about the child sponsorship program at these churches. She is responsible for communicating with donors, organizing quarterly sponsorship updates and collecting photos and projects from the children in Kenya and sending them to their sponsors. Her goal is to get all of our students sponsored and to cultivate a personal connection between the sponsor and their kids.
David and Kim have also teamed up with an evangelist, Ken Freeman, that will be promoting Real 4 Christ Ministries. We will be traveling with Ken regularly, representing Real 4 Christ and signing up new sponsors.
Our hearts desire is to see people involved in what God is doing in Kenya. We need your help as we step out on faith and trust Him to provide for us. Our monthly goal is to raise $4250 to cover living, travel and ministry expenses so that we can devote 100% to Real 4 Christ!
We would like to ask that you consider partnering with us to reach our goal by giving a monthly donation of $40 or more. There is so much work to be done and we need your help.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
David and Kim Hayes
