Last month, Francis Mbuvi and Moses Okoth came to the United States to join up with our executive director, Brad Voss, and put in a lot of miles in support of Made in the Streets! Over the course of one month, these three guys visited MITS supporters and churches in 10 cities, building new relationships and dreaming for the future of ministry to street kids.
Here's what went down, by the numbers:
10 cities • 8 churches • 6 flights • 3 universities • 10 host homes • 50 cups of coffee • 100s of conversations • 1 broadway musical • Lots of MITS supporters • Lots of barbecue
Brad Voss, MITS' executive director, shared his thoughts on the trip, "We had a fantastic trip across the United States talking to lots of people about Made In The Streets. We made new friends and met up with many long-time MITS friends and supporters. We had some memorable experiences and received some incredible hospitality along the way. We attended an amazing fund raising dinner in Nashville; spoke in church classes, youth groups, and worship services; visited high school and college classes; met with leaders from KWO; met leaders from ACU, LCU, Lipscomb, and Pepperdine Universities; visited The headquarters of Apple; and met up with some cast members of the Lion King in New York City. We are so thankful to the many hosts and supporters that kept us warm, housed, fed and encouraged along the way. What a great trip!"
