The purpose of this outreach is to help the local churches in their ministries by reaching out to children, youth, and elderly in villages. Through this cross-cultural experience, you will have the amazing opportunity to grow in your faith and relationship with God.You will be working as part of a cross-cultural team in partnership with local village churches. This outreach will involve organizing a day camp for children, visiting elderly people in their homes, and possibly helping practically where needed.
Available for: Singles Couples Families Groups
During the children’s day camp, you will be organizing games, doing crafts, sharing a Bible story, puppets, drama, singing songs, and more. You will also visit and encourage families and elderly in their homes by listening to their stories, sharing testimonies, distributing food parcels and Bibles, and possibly helping with practical work. Most likely you will work in two different churches and villages.
Do you have a heart for children and elderly? Do you want to be challenged in your faith and experience God in a new way through cross-cultural ministry? Do you want to share the Gospel in a practical way and encourage local churches and believers? Come and join us!
