What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

FzxJn6P-0%21sizeoriginal.jpg

WHO WE ARE

We have provided opportunities for people to serve on trips to Uganda, Africa for over 15 years and we love it! We now have a 40+ acre missions base that hosts hundreds of people every year for short-term missions and internship opportunities. Our Ugandan staff team consistently serves in surrounding villages and they joyfully lead individuals/teams throughout the year!

Our mission in everything we do is to mobilize, inspire and empower people to live on purpose while reaching out in love. We believe that everyone was created by God with a special purpose and plan. Our goal is to see that purpose discovered, nurtured and fulfilled. We’ve seen individual’s passions ignited and dreams awakened after they’ve said “yes” to serve with us. Our medical/nursing internship program was created for you to set yourself apart for up to 9 weeks to pursue your passions and work alongside our leadership team.

WHERE

We will pick you up at the Entebbe International Airport in Kampala. You will be brought to our beautiful base just North of Kampala, where you will stay the duration of your trip. Everyday our team visits local surrounding villages to do ministry. You will have an opportunity to serve in multiple capacities, and visit multiple villages depending on your interests. Your meals will be provided on base by our cook, and at the end of your stay we will take you back to the airport. We look forward to hosting you!

WHEN

Our local team operates in consistent ministries every week. Join when it is most convenient for you (and your team if you are serving with one). We host individuals and teams throughout the entire year. Most days will consist of breakfast, morning ministry, lunch, afternoon ministry, and dinner. In between ministry and meals there will be time to rest, enjoy the beautiful base and surrounding hills.

SKILLS

Medical training is required if you would like to serve in an official medical capacity alongside our local staff. If you would still like to learn about medicine in Uganda, but do not have training, you can serve in our clinic in ways that you can observe and learn. 

WHAT WE WILL DO

We provide intervention and treament to patients on a daily basis. You will have the opportunity to pray over the sick, hold newborn babies, and speak life over mamas in labor. The capacity in which you can serve alongside our team depends on what your desire and training is.

Medical/Nursing Interns will also have the choice to support our team in other departments. Past interns have supported our team through administration, photography/videography, leading short-term visitors on outreaches, organizing donations/supplies, creating bible lessons, etc. Some outreaches may include:

  • Home visits to children and families in our sponsorship program
  • Elderly visits (loving on them with quality time and service around their home/land)
  • Community service projects to homes in the villages (helping families clean around the home, small building projects, handing out mosquito nets)
  • Visit local markets, a prison, and local churches to share the gospel and pray over people
  • Lead fun games and bible lessons at primary schools, our weekly Hot Lunch program, and our weekly “Say No To Hunger” sponsorship program
  • Connect with the youth through teaching bible studies and life skills at high schools and our weekly “Ignite” youth program
  • Potentially lead VBS and youth events at the Dream Center (our youth center)
  • Help tutor small groups of children during our Bridge tutoring program
  • Be a part of clean water well commissioning’s
