Keziah recently visited the h.o.w? Jewelry widows in Kinangop to photograph newly installed windows we provided for Teresia’s home. She also presented fabric to our tailors, Jane, Cecilia and Mary, and photographed a new woven basket Julia is working on. We think they all look wonderful, and we can’t wait to see what they make next!
Learn more about h.o.w? Ministry, why we do what we do, how you can get involved, who we serve and what you can look forward to if you choose to join us on a short-term mission trip to Kenya.
Plan now to participate in our annual 5K run/walk for “the least of these” to help fund our missions. Our 2015 event is scheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2015, at La Croix Church.
The 2-week mission we completed in January was “our best trip ever,” h.o.w?

Jewelry headquarters in rural Kinangop, Kenya, members of the h.o.w? widows shared what they had learned at our two-day Arise Women’s Conference, presented gifts and a poem of thanks, and then posed for some Polaroid photos they could take home to remind them of the dreams they envisioned there.
The second day of the Arise Women’s Conference at Lake Naivasha included a session designed to help those who are HIV positive learn how to take care of themselves physically and spiritually, a discussion of the h.o.w? vision, some selfies and photo fun by the pool, and a field trip to the Kenya Agricultural and […]
The first-of-its-kind Arise Women’s Conference 2015 got under way Tuesday, Jan. 13, at Panorama Park Lodge near Lake Naivasha, Kenya, with 16 of the h.o.w?
