Kenya Hope mourns three in fatal car accident

By October 27, 2023

Kenya (Kenya Hope) — It is with deep sadness that Kenya Hope announces that Dave and Joy Mueller, the executive directors, along with Julie Holman, daughter of Kenya Hope’s US Director, were killed in a tragic car accident on Wednesday.

Dave and Joy worked with Kenya Hope for the last 13 years and made significant contributions in providing freshwater wells, education, widow training, and food relief to a number of communities within the Nairobi and Narok areas of Kenya.

Prior to working with Kenya Hope, the Muellers worked as missionaries with Partners in Compassion in Southern Sudan and New Tribes Mission in Papa New Guinea.

Julie Holman had just passed the board certification for her nurse practitioner certification and was currently in Kenya as a volunteer with Kenya Hope to evaluate medical facilities and provide medical vaccines.

“Dave and Joy will be remembered as missionaries who worked both faithfully and tirelessly to help others who were in need and spread the gospel of Christ. While they will be greatly missed by our organization, I know they have a place in heaven for a life well-served,” said Eric Hoogstra, Chairman of the Kenya Hope Board.

As these three were in Kenya at the time of the accident, arrangements at this point will not be immediate. Another notice will be sent when arrangements are made.

Please join Kenya Hope in praying for both the Mueller and Holman families during this time of grief.
