A Vesper Service is held every year at Camp, and during that time we give the campers an opportunity to participate in an offering for a designated foreign mission. The foreign mission that Camp supported this year was Katherine’s Mission. The mission was started by Katherine Mayhew in 2011 with goal of helping to support orphans in East Africa. Katherine was a camper this year, and she was able to tell us about what her mission stands for and what the LORD has accomplished through this young lady so far.
“My dad, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew, serves our CLC congregations in East Africa as a part time foreign missionary, so I’m able to learn a lot about our African brothers and sisters in Christ. I wanted to do something to help share the message of Christ overseas, especially with the children. In the summer of 2011, I started Katherine’s Mission and began to knit and crochet items to sell to raise money for missions. I make dolls, dishcloths, winter hats and headbands, and all profits go directly to our schools in Africa. So far, by God’s grace, I have raised $2,500. That money has been used to send 68 students on a trip to a big city to learn more about life outside their small rural area, as well as to feed over 160 students and teachers for three months. I look forward to seeing what other opportunities God places before me in the future! To learn more about Katherine’s Mission, please visit my blog: fortheorphans.wordpress.com.”
Take some time to check out her website and see everything that she has done. Thank you Katherine for all that you do, you are an inspiration to us all!
