Journey to South Africa


March 3-14, 2017

Trip Description

Join us on a Journey Trip to South Africa, a country located at the southern tip of the continent of Africa. Our team will serve alongside South African believers and assist with various orphan-related ministries at our church partner location in Durban to include: a medical crusade for 200 orphaned children, serving in the bread-making ministry to the community, organizing food hampers for grandmothers who care for orphans, and playing with children.  

While is South Africa, you will discover more about God's heart for the fatherless through meaningful, engaging experiences.  Learn about the orphan crisis in South Africa, and what you can do to take action and combat this problem.
