What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

June 2019 combo

This team will get to visit two amazing countries: Uganda AND Ethiopia

While in Uganda, the team will spend one day serving in Bwerenga village with the ministry: His Love and Sonshine. The school provides a Christ-centered and high quality education that leads many to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and allows families of Bwerenga Village to remain living in their community and additionally, takes in children rescued from the prison system.

Next the team will travel to Jinja, Uganda where you’ll have the opportunity to serve with several different ministries. You will get to work with Sole Hope learning all about the work they are doing to combat the jigger problem in Uganda by holding medical clinics, as well as providing education and jobs for Ugandans. The team members will get to help them with a medical clinic day – washing feet and sharing the love of Christ.

This team will also spend several days serving with Heal Ministries. The team will get to experience morning worship and praise time with women there and you will get to serve with them for their kids club which is a community outreach to over 300 kids.

You will spend several days serving at the Amani Baby Cottage as well.

While in Jinja, your team will get to take a boat ride on the beautiful Nile River and shop in the charming downtown Jinja town area. You’ll get to serve missionaries and Ugandan staff and bring items from the US to bless and pour into them as they serve day in and day out in Uganda caring for children, families, widows, single moms, and communities.

While in Ethiopia, this team will spend their time in the capital of Addis Ababa serving primarily at Brighton Academy. Brighton Academy is a primary school started in honor of Brighton Asher Hofman. He passed away in an orphanage while waiting to be brought home from Ethiopia – but his 76 days of life changed everything for Laura and Tymm Hoffman, who started Brighton Their World, a ministry designed to provide formula and nutrition to babies in orphanages. Brighton Academy exists to provide a solid education, loving atmosphere, 2 meals a day and clean water to the students and families in the Shero Meda area of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The kids at the school have been learning to speak English. This team will teach a subject to each grade. We welcome ideas and experience of the team members as we plan for what we will teach. You do not have to be a teacher to join this team.

While in Ethiopia, the team will have the opportunity to experience a traditional Ethiopian meal and dance performance at a wonderful restaurant called Yod Abyssinia. Going here is always a team favorite. You will also get to experience an Ethiopian coffee ceremony which is always a treat.

Space is limited so sign up soon!

Please take some time and ask the Lord if you would like to be a part of this exciting trip, serving and ministering in Uganda AND Ethiopia!

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

We partner with organizations, orphanages and ministries around the world that care for children and communities. Every country is a bit different but in each case we send God’s people to come alongside our partner orphanages, communities and ministries to encourage those who are doing the day to day work, to assist in that work and help raise awareness as each partner sees fit, and above all – to love people in Jesus’ name. Our trips are about “being” rather than “doing” although we certainly want to help where we can. We believe that the best place to start is in relationships with one another.
