"Jesus went throughout Galilee... preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people." - Matthew 4:23

We are getting very excited at the progress of the Medical Resource Building (MRB) in the Open Arms Village. We will have our very first permanent medical clinic for our community and for the Village completed in the first half of 2017 and officially open for business in the fall of next year.
Over the past ten years, Open Arms has conducted temporary mobile medical camps in and around the greater Eldoret area. This past August alone, in the Kipkaren slum, a medical team from the UK treated 3,500 people over a four-day period. The need for quality and dependable healthcare in Kenya is great. In addition to meeting this medical need, we always share God's love through Jesus with those who attend our medical camps.
When our MRB clinic opens we will continue to proclaim the gospel of God's Kingdom and His love for people through Jesus. We will do everything we can to save people physically, but we will also do everything we can to reach them spiritually; when the day comes and their bodies give out, they will be alive with Jesus in heaven.
Your gifts to Open Arms are changing lives every day and in every way. When our MRB opens, thousands of lives will be touched and changed with God's healing hands through doctors and through Jesus.
Please consider a gift to Open Arms today. We can't do this without you and we need your support more now than ever before.
Open Arms is focused on preserving life and sharing abundant life through Jesus Christ.
