History

In 2009, I visited Africa to do some missionary work and fell in love with the country and the people. I made some other visits and started a work in South Sudan in 2011. This particular work was to coordinate and mentor local organizations in meeting the basic needs of vulnerable children and orphans. When you administer basics needs, God provides an avenue to teach them about Jesus!

In 2012, God called me to full-time ministry and that is when I moved to Western Kenya. I continued the work with children, as well as orphanages, widows and the elderly throughout Africa. I saw miracle after miracle as God provided for these children each day! In South Sudan, a school was started that now houses over 450 students. A clinic was also started at the school and ministers to the locals. It became more Receiving new shoes and treatmentapparent that there was a desperate need for medical treatment not only in South Sudan but in the isolated and unreached remote areas of Kenya. This is when my ministry was redirected to providing medical treatment and establishing healthcare camps so the locals could continue aiding the people in their area.

In Kenya, I met Irene Okumu. She is a beautiful and refined lady who loves the Lord. We fell in love and were married in 2013. Her insight into the African culture has proved to be invaluable in the ministry.

I was visiting some dear friends of mine in the states. In fact, I consider Larry Wilson as my spiritual mentor. This was 2015 when the Holy Spirit spoke very clearly to me, “I want you to do more. You’re already doing it, I just want you to do more.”

Irene and I continue to seek the Lord for direction and very much want to be a blessing to as many people as we can. For the last three years, our primary focus has been healthcare treatment. It became necessary, therefore, that we begin our own ministry to have the freedom to serve Christ as He leads us. Thus, the birth of Hands of Care International in March 2020.
