Shukuru came to us with over 5 years of experience in missions.
As Director of Operations, Shukuru is the go-to-guy if anything needs to be fixed or built for Hope of the Nations! He is always ready to help. He is also the Chief Engineer on the HofN boat – MV Tumaini. (Tumaini means, “Hope” in Swahili)
Shukuru has a passion for youth and teaches weekly Bible studies at one of the local secondary schools. He’s also a talented musician and is part of the worship team at our church.
Juliana hosts our guest teams that come throughout the year. She serves them, cooks for them, loves to laugh, and makes them feel at home.
In Swahili, “shukuru” means “thankful,” – and we are very thankful that God brought Shukuru & Juliana to us!
