Thank You, KOV!

KOV stands for Kids Of Victory. KOV is a summer kid’s camp held each year by Southgate Church in Crestwood, MO.

In total 750 children attended KOV this year throughout 3 different sessions.

This year, KOV chose Sheltering Wings as their mission emphasis project. The children learned about Burkina Faso, learned about our project here, and participated in various fun activities to help them understand the differences between their culture and the culture of Burkina Faso.

The children played relay races hauling water from the well.

They practiced balancing things on their heads to understand how the people in Burkina carry things.

The children formed competitive teams throughout KOV and in total, they raised over $2000 towards new school desks and school books for ‘back to school’ this Fall. In addition, two more of our children are now sponsored as parents heard about our project.

A huge THANK YOU to Becky Powell, the KOV team and to Southgate Church for choosing us your mission project for this year!
