JONO & KELLY
We are Christian missionaries currently volunteering under the umbrella of The Kenyan Children's Project in the town of Kakamega in Western Kenya. We have been sent out by our Church 'Catch The Fire' - London. We recently became parents to a beautiful baby boy, Hunter Amos Strong.
On the 9th June 2012 we were married in the city of Norwich, it was such a precious day. We had a beautiful home, we loved our city and we had some incredible friends around us. As we entered our first winter together as a married couple, it was obvious to us, as we strived for God to be at the centre of our marriage, we were about to have our lives turned upside down.
Kelly was a qualified registered nurse, working on a very busy renal ward at the local hospital. She loved her job and she worked so hard.
Jono was an engineer and worked for a company in his families home town of Fakenham. The company made pea harvesters. Jono specialised in hydraulics, helping to make machinery weighing a huge 27 tonnes.
After much thought and prayer, it was decided. We would both resign from our wok places in May 2013 and although we felt excited for what was in store, we also felt a little apprehensive.
what happened next
Well, the adventure quickly began! We flew to South Africa and travelled through eight bordering countries until we found our feet on Kenyan soil. Since September 2013, we have been working alongside a UK charity of which is based in a town called Kakamega in Kenya. It is a non-governmental organisation, called The Kenyan Children's Project (Charity Commission number: 1110102).
We have been at the forefront of the work in which the charity is doing out in Kenya ever since. We work within the rural communities, as well as raising up a team of employee's; empowering them to work efficiently and closely with the local children's department, to; locate; take hope to, and assist extremely vulnerable children. We help manage a children's rescue centre that provides temporary care for severe cases of child vulnerability. We also work alongside multidisciplinary teams to reintegrate and reunite families, working to see families and widows become dependent and self sustaining.

As a young couple who have stepped out to serve in the unknown, we are seeking to put God’s love into action, to lead people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and to work with communities that are riddled with hunger and poverty. Our aim is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. We hope to honour and empower widows as well as orphans and we want to see the marginalised have a voice by caring for the truly vulnerable.
