Fond Baptiste’s Water Victory!

Fond Baptiste is a community in the St. Marc region of Haiti that was desperate for water with an estimated 500 households and 4,000 people living in the area. The remote village sat high up on a mountain, and traversing the roads to reach the people was extremely dangerous. Because of that, we were unable to send teams there…YET, there is a victory 7 years later!

With the help of our partner, Water Mission International (WMI), and the hard work and motivation of the people of Fond Baptist, the community now has running water!

In July 2019, our friends at Water Mission lost a cherished leader, friend, and Co-founder of WMI, Molly Greene. Molly exhibited perseverance and determination on a daily basis and the funds that were donated in order to finish this project were given in honor of Molly. This safe water project in Fond Baptiste and the members of the community exhibit perseverance and determination just like Molly always did.

We are so grateful for our friends at WMI, for Molly’s life and legacy, and for God’s goodness in bringing this project to completion for the people of Fond Baptiste.

Thank you to everyone who prays for and generously supports The 410 Bridge!

Serving with Joy: A Week in Mutirithia, Kenya

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Kenya, allow me to do my best to try to put into words what an incredible life-changing experience that you really need to do at least once in your life. 

I was recently blessed to travel to Mutirithia, Kenya with an amazing group of 20 other Christian men to serve the families in that community over the course of a week. 

We prepared for weeks to make sure everyone understood the primary objective of the trip, which was to build upon relationships already formed in the community and to spread the Word to as many people as we could. 

Allow me to unfold a day-by-day glimpse of what we experienced:
