The Oloolua Community
For Gethsemane International it is important that the children in our home are grounded in the local Christian community and that they learn to give back to their community. For this reason, we partner with our local church in Oloolua. The pastor and members of this church have been a great support to our ministry, and our staff and children are heavily involved in the church. Our children participate in the youth group and many serve on the worship team and in the choir. The youth pastor has led weekly Bible studies at the home. During our mission trips, we join the church for services, and several times we have used the church building to host medical clinics and VBS for the surrounding area. We are grateful to God for this strong local church and their support of our mission to rescue orphans and raise Godly men and women.
