You’re here! Soon, you’ll be THERE!
ZAMBIA, AFRICA. The orphans and mamas can’t wait to meet you! Our trip is August 6-17, 2015. 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.
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.
If you would rather put your hands to work on construction, you can help with the renovation of the My Father’s House Orphan Homes. This is what we call our community of homes where the children and mamas reside. We currently have 11 homes that need a makeover.
You will also see our Chicks-4-Orphans poultry farm where we raise chicks to their proper weight to provide skills training and sustainable income for our orphan-care ministry.
You will engage with our Zambian staff 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.
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!
