through a partnership between communities, uniting for a common good.
After seeing a Christian Children’s Fund commercial in 1998, 16-year-old Brittney James decided she wanted to sponsor a young Kenyan boy named Newton. For three years, she made monthly sponsorship payments. She aspired to one day make a trip to Kenya to meet Newton.
But on Sept. 14, 2001, Brittney was found dead in her off-campus apartment at the age of 19. Their lives are broken and wrecked, her parents, Steve and Greta decided to do something she would have wanted to do in memory of her.
God laid it on their hearts to meet her sponsored child, and 6 months later Steve set out for Kenya to meet Newton.
Just prior to his departure, Steve added another item to his to-do list. After contacting a local hospital in Migori, Kenya, Steve decided he would use his gifts as a nurse anesthetist while in Kenya. Wanting to help as much as he could, he also collected a pallet full of supplies and equipment and flew it to Kenya.
Seeing the need firsthand, what Steve witnessed was worse than what he had imagined. He was blown away by the amount of pain and suffering he saw in this community. He realized God was calling him to make a change and leave a legacy of hope in Western Kenya.
Upon his return to the U.S., he shared his experience with anyone and everyone. He knew each person had something to offer. Steve and Greta started KenyaRelief.org, a faith-based organization that partners with others to make a difference in the world by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through physical, mental, and emotional aid. The birth of KenyaRelief.org is a testimony to one life leaving a lasting impact in the world; Brittney left her mark on the world, Steve is leaving his, and so can you.
It starts with one person.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the barrenness of damnation.
