You’re here! Soon, you’ll be THERE!
ZAMBIA, AFRICA. The orphans and mamas can’t wait to meet you! Here’s what you can expect on your journey.
Lots of hugs! Our children love hugs – even the teenagers do! If you are a sponsor, this is the perfect opportunity to build a deeper relationship with your sponsored child. In years past, short-term missionaries have joined the children in organizing a fun talent show, playing soccer (or football), eating nshima together, and visiting their church and school. Your time in Zambia will provide many opportunities to interact, coach, mentor, and encourage our students in our My Father’s House family homes, especially the older students.
You will have an opportunity to serve at our annual Camp Hope Bible camp outreach. To a child who has lost everything, Camp Hope can bring hope and healing. Short-term missionaries minister to orphans through Bible study, prayer, music, crafts, and games. Every child receives a new T-shirt, bandana, and he or she is served two to three warm meals a day, something many children rarely (if ever) experience. Most importantly, they hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
You will also have the opportunity to see our two Business-as-Missions projects and the impact they have on our ministry and kids. Our Chicks-4-Orphans poultry farm raises chicks to their proper weight to provide skills-training and sustainable income for our orphan-care ministry, and our Bikes-for-Orphans bike shop is where we sell and repair used bicycles in the local community, while employing some of our older students to teach them marketable business skills.
You will engage with our Zambian staff, mamas, and My Father’s House children and get a behind-the-scenes look into Every Orphan’s Hope. You will dine with our staff, hear their stories, and learn how they’ve overcome some of the administrative challenges working in a developing country. There is also the possibility of serving at a new outreach feeding program to orphans and vulnerable children in the Chongwe community (details still in the works).
Finally, we’ll take you on a culture walk and safari. You will explore Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, as well as a village called Chongwe in the rural parts of the country. This can be a humbling but very memorable experience. Your final day in country will include souvenir shopping and enjoying a safari drive.
Are you excited? We are, too!
