Kim (Close) & Brenden Vowell
Kim and Brenden head up Project Samuel in Zambia, Africa (projectsamuel.org). Project Samuel exists to love, care and equip children and communities in great need. They provide permanent housing for orphans in a family style environment. The children receive food, clothing, school fees, discipleship, education and leadership support. The facility in Zambia currently houses 24 children with a vision to continue to grow.
Along with the children’s home they have a sustainability side to the ministry. Project Samuel has cornfields, goats, chickens, a vegetable garden, orchard and a Moringa crop. They currently have nine local workers who are employed full time, with many others receiving seasonal employment. This helps to change the lives of these families.
