Lahash Team heading to Tanzania & Uganda

Lahash Travel Team 2013


In just under two weeks a team from the Portland Lahash center will be traveling to East Africa for another exciting and intense lineup of meetings, trainings, media events, and homestays.

From Portland the team will consist of Dan Holcomb, Will Campbell, Katie Nelson, and Casey Schilperoort. Katie’s sister Ginny will be joining the team partway through the trip.

On the ground in East Africa we’ll meet up with Edwin Angote and Leisha Otieno – and also we’ll work with the Lahash Servant Team (the Bakers) for nearly a week.

Here is the general plan:

  • Oct 14 – Traveling to Uganda
  • Oct 15-22 – Staying with the kids and staff at Amazing Grace Children’s Home
  • Oct 23-25 – Visiting the kids of the Kampala Home
  • Oct 26-27 – A two-day visit to the children and staff of Savior’s Home
  • Oct 28 – Traveling across Lake Victoria
  • Oct 29-30 – Lahash Staff Retreat
  • Oct 31 – Nov 4 – Getting to know our new partners (Path of Hope) in Shinyanga
  • Nov 5-11 – Spending a week with the kids at the churches around Dodoma, Tanzania
  • Nov 12-13 – Dar Es Salaam
  • Nov 14 – The Portland team flies back to the US


Please be in prayer for our team as we travel (safety and unity) and also that we’ll have excellent intercultural dialogue with our partners in meetings and visits.

All team members still need additional funds for their trips. You can head over to to donate to one of the travelers.

Our team will update our Facebook page as we travel – and share blog posts on this website as well.

Thanks for partnering with us in the wonderful work!
