Africa 2020

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37-38

The Vision

In June of 2019, Crossroads sent a small missionary team to Kenya. The goal was to see how God was already moving there and to plan out how a larger Crossroads team could be effective in the area. Crossroads is sending another team to Turkana, Kenya in June of 2020. The team will partner with local ministries to show Christ’s love in a tangible way by providing clean water and irrigation systems to the Turkana people as well as learn about and help with various farming techniques. The team will be working in rural areas learning the culture, experience local ministries, and assist in various farming activities.

Ministry Partners

Gene and Melba Morden have served the Turkana people in the Kenyan desert since 1995. Crossroads has supported the Mordens for several years as they work in leadership development for house and village churches and also in clean water initiatives, installing wells and irrigation systems to provide sanitary water and help people gain food security. The clean water and daily food from irrigated farms provide opportunities for Christians to reach out both locally to their neighbors and cross culturally to other tribes. Gene will be leading the team.

Support the Team

While the trip will be challenging and rewarding, each team member has been asked to raise approximately $3,100-$3,500 (TBD).  Our team appreciates your prayers and support as we prepare together.  If you are interested in financially supporting our team, please click the link below.


If you have any questions or want to know more about our trip, please contact us HERE.

How Water & Farming Helps

Clean water allows farmers to plant and harvest food for their families and micro-businesses, providing stability for the community.

God provides – and the  2019 team fully funded their trip – with excess.  The excess funds were used to purchase a van that the Turkana people use to transport their crops to the local market.


“Ejoka” means “Thank You” in Turkana.
