About Rainbow Christian Missions
It was in the summer of 2001 that Ruth Dietz was first called to participate in a mission trip to Butere, a small village in western Kenya.
After returning from Butere, Ruth began organizing a child sponsorship program for children in the Butere and surrounding villages who desperately needed an education but whose parents could not afford to send them to school. After the first year, there were 7 children sponsored. By the time Ruth returned with a mission team in 2003, there were over 80 children sponsored by individuals and church groups. Today, the program has grown to include over 150 children.
The support and needs of Butere and other areas around Butere has grown tremendously since 2001. Today support and mission teams are not only helping to sponsor children in school, but they are helping by providing medical outreach clinics, providing support to men and women who are HIV+, providing water wells, and providing many other resources such as food, mattresses, mosquito nets, bibles, clothing and many other items.
In order to coordinate resources and better provide for the growing needs, Rainbow Christian Missions was born. Through this organization, it is hoped that the resources and funds will become available to continue Gods work, at the level that He is calling us to provide to our brothers and sisters in Kenya.
