What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

39524634831_150da48ba6_5k.jpg

Hurricane Harvey was one of the most costly natural disasters in U.S. history. An estimated 32,000 people were displaced from damaging winds and extreme flooding. FEMA is reporting there are over 410,000 people who have applied for disaster assistance.

In addition to wind damage, vast areas of Houston were flooded by unprecedented amounts of rainfall. Homeowners in these neighborhoods are now faced with the difficult task of rebuilding. Many residents are forced to move forward without the help of insurance. The news cycle might have moved on, but these people are still in the middle of an emergency. They need immediate help!

It is time for the church to mobilize around our brothers and sisters in Houston. Mission Discovery will be partnering with a local church to focus on Houston’s Fifth Ward neighborhood. We are committed to leading teams to rebuild and repair homes. We hope to be a physical representation of the love of Christ as we meet real needs. We will use this opportunity to show the residents of Houston that they are not alone.

Your team can be a part of the solution!

Daily Work Assignments:

  • Each day your team will be sent out to home sites to repair, repaint, and replace what was lost during the storm. A mixture of skilled and unskilled labor is welcome. All of our work will be directed by our local church contacts.
  • We will be part of a larger vision to bring healing to the neighborhoods of Houston. Our staff will be on hand to help guide your team.

Mission Trip Offered By Mission Discovery

Mission Discovery trips aim to help developing communities. Teams of volunteers build homes for families in need, love on orphans, feed the hungry, clothe and educate school children, provide medical care and empower churches to bring hope to their communities. The Mission Discovery Staff arranges food, lodging, and logistics so volunteers will be effective from day one. Each night we offer a worship service to provide an atmosphere to come together and reflect on what the volunteers have experienced during the day.

Open your eyes to a world waiting to be discovered. Since 1991, God has used Mission Discovery teams to transcend language and cultural barriers to bring hope and Spiritual awakening to those who need urgent help. Since its beginning, over 50,000 students and adults have served around the world with Mission Discovery. Today, that work continues stronger than ever!

Each year Mission Discovery staff gather partners for support. Because of its passionate donors, Mission Discovery is able to lower trip prices. We want everyone to serve on a mission trip, so our goal is to make them more affordable. Together, through the power of Christ, we can make a huge difference in the world!
