Kenya Missions 2012

This year's Missions Trip to Kenya was again an overwhelming success! 36 Missionaries journeyed over 20,000 mile round trip to deliver the life changing message of the gospel and service 1000's of Kenyans with Medical, Dental and Social Services. Our Mission field was set in Migoto, Africa where Dr's Allen, Inglebire, Palmer, Houston's served the people of Africa with love caring and concern. As some waited in line for several hours at a time just receive the basic medical services that often time we take for granted. While there our team also demonstrated the Love of God by providing "Foot Washing" to well over 300 Kenyans! We also provided eyeglasses for the elders of the village. We were able to join in worship at Trinity Missions School with over 200 orphans. Also we were able to visit the IDP (internally Displaced Persons) camp to offer words of encouragement and hope. The response by the people we served was tremendous. Kenya 2013 is already underway so we invite you to a head start on your planning to with us. We believe in the great Commission with all of our hearts. We invite you to be a part of what God is doing with Bethel's Global Reach.

CZECH REPUBLIC 2012

Bethels Global Reach led a team of 20 missionaries to Czech Republic for the cause of evangelizing. While in Prague we witness to hundreds of people about Christ, many of which had never been witnessed to. Our efforts were not in vain as many made confessions of faith unto the Lord Jesus, which included many youth and young adults. Our eyes were opened to apart of the world that needs the Gospel of Christ. It is often argued that the Czech Republic is one of the most secular countries in the world. This claim is usually based on the sociological surveys and census data which show that only a small proportion of Czechs goes regularly to church and that most of the Czech Republic's population does not report even a formal affiliation to any church.

However, the idea that Czechs are almost completely indifferent to any religion is not accurate. The apparent lack of interest in traditional forms of Christianity is accompanied by the massive popularity of what sociologists call "invisible" or "alternative" religion and what could be best described as a belief in magic. Czechs may not be very enthusiastic churchgoers but many of them easily accept the idea that fortune-tellers can predict the future, lucky charms bring good fortune or that the stars might influence their lives. Moreover, claims about Czech non-religiosity are also complicated by the growth of charismatic and evangelical movements in recent years. Even though the total number of evangelicals and charismatics is small, some of these denominations have multiplied their membership several times in the 10 years between the last two censuses.

Weak support for traditional church religion is partly a legacy of Czech nationalism of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century and its interpretation of the country's religious history. Catholicism, which was the major religion at that time, was seen as an Austrian import that forcibly replaced the "true" religion of the Czech nation – Protestantism. The denunciation of the Hapsburg monarchy and German language and culture (though, paradoxically, the German-speaking urban intelligentsia played a major role in the first wave of Czech nationalism) thus also included also a rejection of the Catholic faith. Nationalist anti-Catholic arguments appealed to many Czechs even though most of the population remained formally affiliated to the Roman Catholic church.

However, in 1918, when Czechoslovakia gained independence from the Hapsburg monarchy, the country experienced a massive religious change without any parallel in Europe at that time. In the first three years of independence, one and half million of Catholics (mainly of Czech ethnicity) left the church and this trend – even though in a much weaker form – continued in the following years. As not much survived from the Czech Protestantism and the Hussite movement into the 20th century, the Protestant churches were too weak to step in and fill the gap. Some ex-Catholics joined a newly formed liberal denomination called the Czechoslovakian (Hussite) church but a significant number of them simply became "unaffiliated". And even the Czechoslovakian (Hussite) church itself did not prove to be a success as it lost about 90% of its members in the next decades.

Indifference towards church religion was, in the second half of the 20th century, further deepened by the anti-religious propaganda and persecution of the communist regime but we should not interpret the Czech non-religiosity simply as a legacy of the communist past. The Czech population had rather ambiguous attitudes towards the church even before the onset of the communism, which explains why none of the other Central European post-communist country displays a similarly low support for traditional religion as the Czech Republic's population.

Kenya Missions 2011

With a 35 person team, among them, there were 7 Ministers, 4 Doctors, 1 Pharmacist, 5 Registered Nurses and 14 Lay Members; Bethel's Global Reach was able to visit Kenya once again. We were able to ship $350,000 in medical supplies and medicine, 1 Medical Unit ($80,000 value) and 4 Dental units ($100,000 value). During their 14 day Mission's Trip, the team were able to minister to and/or served over 4000 Kenyans, establish partnerships with local ministries, serve in six different camps and provide dental and minor medical services to the people of Kenya.

Kenya Missions 2010

In the summer of 2010, Bethels Global Reach led a team of 92 people comprised of 5 medical Doctors, 7 Licensed and Ordained Ministers, 18 Nurses, 14 Teachers; a total of 18 different professions on a two week mission trip to Kenya, Africa spanning over 19,000 miles round trip. With the help of well over 250 dedicated volunteers, we loaded and shipped Four 20 Ft Containers with an estimated $5.5 million in supplies. This included: thousands of pairs of shoes, socks, tooth brushes, blankets, heaters, jackets, eye glasses, medicines, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals and school supplies. Between the three mission's camps: Into Abba's Arms, Serve International, and Kingdom Builders Centre; we ministered to over 8,000 Kenyans, thru medical services, food and preaching! With plans in place to return to Kenya in 2011, we will continue the great work we started with the deployment of 200+ missionaries!

The Father-Daughter Dance: A Night of Royalty

Bethels Global Reach and Perfect Praise Children's Ministry hosted and sponsored this year's first annual FDD. The success of this event was more than we could have ever hoped for. With more than 350 Fathers dressed in their finest attire along their Daughters adorned in Evening Gowns, this was a night of Royalty. Psalm 45:13 declares that the King's Daughters is all Glorious... On this night we showed the importance of Fathers and role they play in their children's lives. A night of dining, and dancing this was a night that no one would soon forget. Our Sponsors once again showed their support for Bethels Global Reach and Perfect praise by donated time, and treasure to make this a special night for all. Looking forward to TFD being an annual event.
