OUR MISSIONS


Homewood currently supports two missionary families in Africa. The Miller family serves in Rwanda, and The Sims family serves in Tanzania. 


Read below to learn more about these families. 


THE MILLER FAMILY

Matt and Andrea are both graduates from Harding University and have been on the mission field for over 16 years. They have four children; Abby, Aidan, Asher and AnnaMarie. 


They are blessed to have been able to live and work in Togo, West Africa for over 11 years. In January 2012 they moved to join God in what He is doing in Rwanda, East Africa. Their passion is to train and equip disciples to follow Christ in obedience. They have opened Virunga Valley Academy, an international school in Rhuengeri, Rwanda. Matt serves as the director of the school and Andrea teaches at the school. They partner with ATN (Africa Transformation Network) in Rwanda, a christian organization committed to community transformation in Africa through discipleship, partnership, service and development.

THE SIMS FAMILY

Jonathan and Brooklyn met at Harding University where Jonathan earned a degree in missions and Brooklyn a degree in graphic design with a global missions minor. After graduation the Sims worked in Buena Vista, Colorado as whitewater rafting guides, and then traveled to Tanzania for an 8 month long missions apprenticeship. Jonathan is passionate about discipling people toward maturity in Christ and hopes to use his interest in agriculture and development to share God's blessings with communities in Africa. Brooklyn is a talented artist with a passion for showing hospitality, serving women a children, and she hopes to use her talents in whatever way God shows her. 


They currently serve the community Dar ES Salaam, Tanzania

OUR MISSION TRIPS

HONDURAS


Every summer we take a team to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. On this trip we work with an organization called Torch Missions. During our trip we build houses, deliver food bags, visit orphanages, work with local churches, visit the hospitals, and much more. 


March 11th we have a community yard sale, of which 100% of proceeds go toward our work fund for our mission trip. We will be taking donations starting February 1st. 


This year our trip is scheduled for June 3rd - 10th. If you would like more information please contact Justin Peach.




RWANDA, AFRICA


Every two or three years, Homewood sends a team to visit our missionary families in Africa to offer encouragement and support for the work they are doing. In June of 2016 a team of 17 visited the Miller family in Rwanda. While there the team enjoyed participating in authentic "African daily life" experiences, English teaching classes and children's day camp, Perhaps the most enjoyable portions of the trip were meeting the friends and neighbors of the Millers and forming our own individual relationships with them.
