I traveled to Kenya twice as part of a short term mission team with groups from CMF, and I can't tell you what an amazing experience it was each time. The first trip, in 2008, was absolutely life changing for me. We were able to visit Mary & Wallace Kamau and their schools and ministries in Nairobi, as well as travel out to Maasai medical clinics. I have never felt closer to God in all of my life then I did during those two trips. The people we met were so wonderful. Going back the second time felt like going home, truly. I have traveled pretty extensively in my life, and although the areas we went to in Kenya were some of the poorest I've ever been in, these people had the love of God in their hearts, and what they did not have in the material sense, they had more abundantly in the spiritual sense. And the children....oh, how I loved those smiling, happy faces. The singing, the holding hands, the playing soccer, the painting finger nails, the hugs! I now know what Heaven must be like. Would I go again, or tell you to go? In a heartbeat. The CMF staff were kind, courteous and knowledgable. Every chance I get to talk to someone about Kenya, or the work that the fabulous folks at CMF are doing there, you bet I take the time to share. I pray for all of these folks regularly, and encourage you, if you are reading this, to ask God how you can be used, how you can be His "hands and feet" in another country. Maybe He's not calling you to go, but to support. And that support can change lives. You don't have to be a doctor or nurse to be used in mighty ways there. And believe me, it will touch and completely change your life. Pray about it, and act on what you are lead to do. Step out in faith. Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll see you there! Tracy Jentzsch, Maryland

CMF has opened the door for me to see how to make a difference in people's lives from many perspectives, and how I can be a partner with the work through my contributions, short-term trips, or cheerleading my church to be involved with CMF. First of all, this organization is exactly what it says it is. My money goes where it's supposed to go. I receive regular information on CMF's ministries and activities. The website is informative (cmfi.org). Through CMF I get to see holistic work that cares about people physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I've learned about how to use Community Health Evangelism, how to work with university students, life in Asia's big cities and East Africa's slums, planting churches in First World cities and rural villages, helping the poor through microfinance and child sponsorship, touching the middle and upper classes through friendship, Bible studies, and kindness. CMF attracts personnel who reach for excellence in whatever part of the organization they serve.
