And Then there Were 6! Meet Baby Robert Andrew Bahati

Hello Friends and Supporters of Mission:180
On May 9, we landed in Saskatoon after a long journey that took us from Nairobi, to Istanbul Turkey, through Chicago and finally back to Mission:180's headquarters in Saskatoon. We landed to a blustery cold night of +3. That is the coldest temperature we have felt since December 2010! Since May 25 Jennifer, Joshua Jacqueline and I  have traveled more than 8000 km by mini-van, not to mention air and ferry travel! We have presented Mission:180's work in 7 churches on 7 different Sundays, hosted our semi annual Silent Auction and Info Night, presented in businesses and to informal groups in homes. We have slept in different beds almost every night. Its been pretty much non-stop travel and a routine of set-up, share, take down, and then do it again and again! It is a tough schedule, and we are far from done. We return home to Kenya on August 6. As difficult and demanding as it is, we do it all because of little guys like Robert Andrew Bahati.

Last week we got a call about a baby boy who had been abandoned in the woods. The police were called to the scene where a baby boy had been abandoned. He was found naked, bruised, and covered in ants. It is suspected that he spent his first 24 hours alone on the forest floor. He was rushed to hospital in what doctors called "rough shape". He spent seven weeks in the hospital, and then Mission:180 was asked to take him in.
This is exactly why we are in Kenya, To rescue these little ones who are completely unable to care for themselves. What an honor to be able to love these babies!
Robert Andrew Bahati


A happy little boy!


All bundled up and cozy!

Without the help of generous supporters like you, we cannot do what we do! Please accept our thanks for your support.

If you are not already a part of Mission:180's financial support base, would you consider making a commitment to help us with a monthly contribution? We are here in Canada raising funds so that we can continue our work inj Kenya, as well as grow the scope of that work. Our goal this summer is to see our pledged monthly support grow by a minimum of $2,500.00 per month.
One time, or occasional donations are always welcome, however we cannot budget on those. Our pledged support gives us the basis for setting the budget and knowing what we can do. Please consider making a pledge. No amount is too small. When many get involved, IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE!

To make a monthly pledge that comes directly out of your bank account, please email jason@mission:180.ca, and Jason will get back to you with the details about how to make that happen.
To set up recurring donations through PayPal, please see the left side of this column near the top. Enter an amount, then click Submit. It will walk you through the process.

Thanks again, for making it possible for Mission:180 to do the important work we do in Kenya!
