The Future of MOHI Future of MOHI

How We’re Growing to Support 100,000 Children by 2030

We’re always listening for the promptings of the Holy Spirit to identify needs in our MOHI communities. And recently, our vision has become clear: Sponsor 100,000 children by 2030!

As we continue to expand programs into new areas, we’ve realized that the future of MOHI calls for greater flexibility and autonomy over U.S. operations.

We’ve begun the process of transitioning Mission of Hope’s U.S. operations to an independent and dedicated team.

This decision has involved a large amount of prayer and careful planning and we’re excited to share the details with you through this webpage and ongoing communications.

A Message from MOHI and CMF

God has blessed Missions of Hope International over the last two decades. In this video, Mary Kamau, Co-founder and Executive Director of MOHI, and Kip Lines, Executive Director of CMF, talk about the future of our partnership and deliver a message of thanks.

To our sponsors and partners — Thank you for helping to make our ministry possible!

Without you, we would not be able to take this important next step. We continue to rely on your support and prayers as we seek God’s will and strive to bring hope and transformation to the world.

Where Should I Give After November 12, 2020?

For a quick guide on how your partnership with CMF and MOHI might be changing, we invite you to review this chart and corresponding explanations below. Information on how to continue giving to the people and projects you care most about follows.

Which Areas of Giving Will Transfer to MOHI After November 12?

MOHI Child Sponsorships

All MOHI child sponsorships will transfer to MOHI.

This means that after November 12, MOHI child sponsorship payments or MOHI child sponsorship questions should be sent directly to MOHI. Please see the contact information and more detailed giving information below. Children in the MOHI program will continue to receive the same great education and holistic care, as these changes only impact the U.S.-based administrative side of our program.

Any ongoing communication regarding MOHI child sponsorships will also come from MOHI.

MOHI Relief Efforts

All MOHI relief efforts, such as COVID-19 or Back to School Renovations, will transfer to MOHI.

This means that after November 12, MOHI relief giving or MOHI relief giving questions should be sent directly to MOHI. Please see the contact information listed below. Any ongoing communication regarding MOHI relief efforts will come from MOHI.

MOHI Projects

Most MOHI projects will transfer to MOHI (there are three exceptions in the CMF section below).

This means that after November 12, MOHI relief giving or MOHI relief giving questions should be sent directly to MOHI. Please see the contact information listed below. Any ongoing communication regarding MOHI projects will come from MOHI.

Which Areas of Giving Will Remain With CMF?

Missionary Support

All giving toward missionaries, including those working with MOHI, will continue to receive their funding, care and development through CMF.

CMF and MOHI will continue in partnership through the sending and serving of missionaries. CMF missionaries currently working with MOHI include these: Wallace & Mary Kamau, Keith & Kathy Ham, Joel & Mercy Brock, Chris & Krystal Settlemoir, Tim & Alicia Stewart, Patrick & Katie Gerber, Rebecca Fielding, Andria Moushon, Nikki Youngs-Stahl, Raelyn Nicholson and Deanna Rebello.

Three Projects

While most projects will transfer to MOHI, there are three whose giving will REMAIN with CMF:

  • BigDent Microfinance Ministry,
  • Discovery Discipleship Camp (Angaza)
  • Hope Sports Ministry & Fields

CMF Child Sponsorship

If you sponsor a child with CMF who is not a part of the MOHI program, that giving will remain with CMF.

How Do I Make Sure My Giving Goes to the Intended Organization?

Over the next few months, CMF and MOHI will work closely together to ensure that your giving is getting to the correct place.

Frequently Asked Questions About the CMF/MOHI Transition

How does this transition benefit MOHI and CMF?

Both MOHI and CMF have extensive ministries with plans for significant growth. Within 10 years, MOHI would like to see 100,000 children in their sponsorship programs operating in multiple countries. Continuing in CMF’s 70-year history of sending teams to do cross-cultural ministry in partnership with local ministries, plans are to have at least 300 missionaries serving in 40 countries within 10 years.

We believe that having a dedicated U.S.-based team that focuses solely on the needs of MOHI will best position both organizations to grow in the ways that God is leading us.

When will the transition take place and what do I need to do?

The transition will take place on November 12, 2020. At that time, MOHI’s US operations will begin functioning as a separate entity from CMF. Please review the giving categories and determine if your area of giving will be transferred from CMF to MOHI. Next, please, review your payment methods to ensure your giving goes to the intended organization.

What about online giving?

If you created an online account with CMF, you will receive an email after November 12 with access to your new, additional, online account with MOHI. All of your account settings and MOHI-specific giving history will have been securely transferred. This new MOHI account will be specific to your MOHI transactions. Your previous CMF account will remain active and unchanged and will be specific to your CMF transactions.

In what ways will MOHI and CMF continue to partner together in the future?

We strongly believe that our partnership has changed thousands of lives, to the glory of God, and we plan to continue partnering together into the future. One significant area of ongoing partnership is through CMF continuing to have missionary teams serve alongside MOHI, with plans to provide additional teams as MOHI expands into new locations.
