What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Strange Animals YOUR $2885 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 previous teams helped create six secondary schools in Western Province Kenya and all serve to bring higher education opportunities to a highly impoverished area. You will be part of a team that will help with the on-going, light construction needs to build a new dormitory and host a 2-day primary care medical camp for the community. We get a bit dirty but our needs will gladly take a back seat as we defer to these deserving kids. You will have the opportunity to share in several classrooms about your faith, your family, your home, your career, job or just about any subject you wish. We will visit other secondary schools we have helped to establish among six communities devastated by HIV/AIDS. Play Volleyball too, Basketball, Soccer, and participate in self-defense instruction for the girls. This group will also take part on a day time safari to see the animals at one of the famous Kenya game parks. This is an excellent opportunity to serve Jesus! Experience is not ever required so even if you just wish to play with the children or hold babies, you will be of great help. Everyone is welcome! Once we have completed the mission, the team will debrief in three stages on the last days in Kenya. Pre-field training is included too and on-site orientation as well. And you're certain to fall in love with nearly 1,000 primary students and 600 or more high school students who know all too well that you are personally bringing them the Good News of the Kingdom of God. It is very possible that this service opportunity will change your life!
