What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Uganda Mission Trip

Uganda is teeming with exotic wildlife, and the people are vibrant, warm, and friendly, making this particular African country a popular destination for tourists from around the world. But you’ll have a profoundly different emphasis and go beyond where the average tourist travels. Like many African countries, it has a dark side; the average Ugandan makes a $1.80 a day, and the effects of crippling poverty are felt at every level of the society. The focus of your trip will be those most vulnerable and who suffer the worst – children.

Ministry—Your ministry in Uganda is primarily going to center around kids and teens. They are the most vulnerable and susceptible to being abused. It’s where the need is. Nearly 50% of the population is under the age of 14. Education is the key to rise above poverty, but only 25% get beyond grade 6, which leads to 38% of kids being educationally undernourished and stunted. But statistics are faceless and cold. The reality is that in spite of their trials, you’ll find the people of Uganda warm and friendly; you’ll be mobbed (in a good way) every time you do ministry by kids who just want to be near you. Your ministry will include discipleship and evangelism in schools. And on any given day, you and your team will find yourselves in a slum, orphanages, and impoverished villages on the outskirts of Kampala. The vast spiritual and physical needs in Uganda are surely close to the heart of Jesus.

Adventure—You’ll not really understand this statement unless you go to Uganda or have been in Africa before: every day is an adventure in Uganda. Simply getting to a ministry site can be a wonderful mix of congestion, confusion, delay, and spontaneity. The best approach is to be willing to tackle each day with a smile and see where the unexpected takes you. You will hike into impoverished villages, cruise down the Nile River, toss stones in Lake Victoria (or Victoria Nyanza), and see exotic African wildlife when you and the team experience time in camp and on a real safari. You don’t get adventures like that when you go to Europe.

Experience Culture—Tourists love Uganda, and it was recently named a “top tourist location.” Tourists view the country from the luxury of 4-star hotels and are herded about in deluxe air-conditioned buses. They experience a culture that is constructed, cleansed, and cultivated to keep them sheltered from the uncomfortable realities of the country. Your cultural experience will be different. Every day you’ll be walking the streets of the slums, smelling the sewage, and coming face-to-face with the pervasive poverty. Sure, it can get uncomfortable, but you get the reward of really getting to know the people from the inside – those irrepressible, joy-filled, Ugandans who love to laugh! Whether sleeping, eating, or doing Kingdom work, you’ll be seeing Uganda and its wonderful people from the inside. You’ll be a traveler, not a tourist.
