Garments of Praise has established partnerships with other active Christian ministries in Kenya, who are helping to identify those in greatest need. With them we seek to provide hope and help to the downtrodden through education, job skills training and by teaching and preaching the “Good News” of the Gospel.
Our goal is not only to train students in job skills so that they become self-sustaining, but also to choose key leaders who will, in turn, teach and train others.
Special thanks and tribute to Lisa Furrow, late wife of Pastor Robert Furrow and leader of the Calvary Tucson Women’s Ministry, who went to be with the Lord on December 15th, 2012. She was, from the beginning, a godly and wise counselor and cheerleader for the work. Her earnest prayers, love and support often were the “wind beneath the wings” of this dream, encouraging and pushing it forward to become what it is today.
Calvary Chapel Tucson has been our partner from the beginning and has helped the dream develop into a reality. They have been involved in praying, generous giving, and serving on the Board of Directors and with our outreach teams. In 2012, GPF was blessed to become a part of “Calvary Chapel Tucson, Missions Ministries – Reach Africa”.
