What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Our teams will partner with one of the largest NGOs in Botswana to support the critical work they are already doing throughout the country. If you’re looking for an experience that will challenge you from every angle–physically, spiritually, mentally–this is the trip for you!

Journey to the largest unbroken stretch of sand on the planet, and experience the start desert beauty where lions roar and elephants roam. Then take time to learn about the devastation caused by AIDS as well as the rapid decline of mainline churches. Join our team to develop young leaders, teach about HIV/AIDS prevention, care for orphans and encourage churches!

In the midst of the desert beauty, you’ll experience breath-taking landscapes and wildlife sightings alongside of heart-breaking devastation and need. The adventurer in you will be called to see things through God’s eyes and to respond with open arms and a servant’s heart as your team stretches beyond your comfort zone and into the extraordinary plan God has for your summer!

Ministry Opportunities:
-Food distribution projects to the elderly and disabled
-Church planting projects

-HIV/AIDS prevention programs in schools
-Love orphans who have lost their families to AIDS

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

Real Impact Missions partners with one of the largest NGOs in Botswana, which is run by Christian missionaries. Our teams come alongside the work they are already doing to expand its reach. We meet needs, fill gaps, and take ministries to the next level. Our partners have requested a RIM team for years, and 2019 will be the first time we say YES to this amazing opportunity. It's been a long, ongoing relationship for us, and we're thrilled that the door has opened for us to send teams to participate in this life-changing work!
