A Note from Candice…

It’s that time of year. I am returning to Africa for 3 weeks…with my 3 little people, 3 new staff members, and 3 sweet sister-friends, each and all co-laborers for the Kingdom.God has been ever faithful to continue to clarify my vision for Passion Partners and brought exceptional servants whom I have the opportunity to shepherd, responsibility to steward, and privilege of bearing fruit through their giftings–from Nashville to Nairobi and beyond.

This week, we will begin our journey to Uganda and Kenya. Our time will be divided between the Restoration Home in Kampala, the Clinic in western Kenya, the J-Project in both countries & a conference with more than 700 girls in Kibera, Nairobi…and visiting a brand new site & meeting partners in Masindi, Uganda!

As Executive Director, I’m committed to annual site visits to collaborate with our partners and cultivate future development. Passion Partners is committed to walking alongside our partners as they walk out their call and their passions. That is our mission. We provide funding. We provide leadership. But the primary motivation behind everything we do is extending the tangible, manifest, Hope of the Gospel.

Passion Partners BUILDS COMMUNITIES: Health Care.  Clean water.  Food. Education. Restoration. Sometimes it presents in relief. Many times it is in development. They are both conduits to the Gospel. Deed & Word. Neither mutually exclusive. Both good, but incomplete without the other.

So, this is a leadership trip. We are visiting project sites, meeting (and fellowshipping–having fun) with all of our extended staff, evaluating progress, planning future expansion, as well as serving while on the ground. We desire to serve our partners well!

I will also be teaching at various venues, some small & intimate, others larger in scale. Exhorting God’s people into the purposes for which they were created is my passion…

But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. Jeremiah 20:9

We will post trip details throughout our trip via Twitter & Facebook. Follow us & Like us to keep up with our whereabouts. We covet your prayers! I look forward to sharing updates upon our return.God has MORE around the corner. We’d love for you to go with us next summer…would you?
