These are the people that help to make WHH possible!  We want you to know the people behind our organization.  Learn more about who they are and how they first got involved.

The Deans 

Nancy has been involved with WHH since 2005.  She was also apart of the New Covenant Sunday School Class.  She is loves being involved because the kids are amazing, especially the girls.  She wants the girls to know they can have opportunities with education and encouragement.

Favorite Memory: "There are so manyI know that God is working in Escarpment when I hear the women sing.  Their voices are so beautiful and truly give God the glory!"

Nancy Hern
Amy Kessinger

Amy got involved with WHH in 2014.  She has felt the call to go to Africa since she was a child.  Her sister-in-law had been on a WHH trip and thought it was life changing.  So her husband and her traded in their 20th anniversary to Paris for a trip to Kenya.  Since that first trip, Amy has started our Light 8:12 program in Kawangware, Kenya.  

Favorite Memory: "There is no way to pick a favorite memory!  Special bonds have been formed with a college girl named Beth, a young girl named Hannah with special needs, and a vivacious little boy named Silas.  They all have a special place in my hear and prayers." 

Doug & Brenda have also been involved with WHH from the very beginning.  They lead trips twice a year and have deep relationship with our partners in Escarpment.  

Ellen Marmon

Ellen has been involved with WHH since 2002.  Ellen caught the vision for how she could help bring hope to this part of the world when a Kenyan couple first visited their New Covenant Sunday School class.  She made her first trip to Escarpment with the Deans and Julie Broderson shortly after that and has been involved ever since.

Nathan Massey

Nathan has been involved with WHH since 2007.  In the summer of 2006 a returning Kenyan team shared during the worship service of Centenary Methodist Church.  The Lord gave me peace about going on a trip, desiring for me to step out of my comfort zone and to trust Him with the details.

Rebekah Straub

Rebekah serves on our board and has participated in many trips through the years.  Rebekah has also helped to communicate to the many wonderful people who donate to WHH through our newsletter and website.


Favorite Memory: "During our first visit I met an adorable little three year old during a church service.  She was very shy, but she did sit next to me for a picture.  Nine years later, Josephine is 12, a bright 5th grader who runs up to us with arms wide open.  She loves playing bubbles and her smile is priceless.  We want to see her and the other primary school students through to high school and college or trade school.  We're in this for the long haul!" 

Favorite Memory: "Working alongside a young man named Evanson who is a WHH program graduate.  We were in the medical clinic and I saw first hand his abundant medical knowledge that he was acquiring in nursing school, and most importantly his selfless sharing of himself and the love of Christ in all he does.  He claims I am his mentor, but truthfully, he has been a greater mentor to me!"
