Short Term Mission Trips
Short term mission trips are an important part of supporting our partners in their efforts to provide comprehensive care to orphans in developing nations.
OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE IN: HAITI. KENYA. ZAMBIA.
Short term trips are also a great way for individuals, churches, and businesses to connect with the heart of our ministry to those in greatest need. Trips are scheduled throughout the year and typically require no specific skills or experience other than a desire to serve others.
