What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Germany YOUR $4485.00 trip fee includes RT air travel! This opportunity is open to everyone! The team member fee also includes lodging, most meals, ground transportation, medicines for the outreach, a daytime animal Safari, and materials related to the project. Our team will travel with professional Christian recording artists who are booked to perform in various communities and larger venues in Kenya. Our team will also assist with on-going construction needs for a dormitory at a school for orphans in the mountains of Western Province. Our team works alongside locals helping to provide the labor to make concrete blocks, dig the foundation, and do whatever it is that we can to make this dream a reality. We will also host at least one community-wide primary care medical camp with oversight from the Ministry of Health. You will also take part on a day time safari to see the animals at one of the famous Kenya game parks. Experience is not required. Once we have completed the mission, the team will debrief in Nairobi before heading to the Black Forest to stay in Triberg for a couple of days, one of the most beautiful places on Earth!

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

The schools were serve were originally started by local churches in Kenya. We continue to work with these churches, their respective community leaders, and the community of parents in order to provide much-needed secondary schools, mostly for orphaned children.

Prefield training is required for participation on any team and will be done by correspondence. Previous short term experience is helpful but like construction experience, it is not required.
